I have never before given a great deal of thought to strikers, and that would certainly be true of the current baggage handlers strike at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv except for one thing...
Our mail comes by plane.
The baggage handlers unload our mail in addition to the bags.
Or, more accurately, they don't unload our mail. We have heard that some of our mail flew away with the planes that came here and left again.
That makes me cranky.
