The sign in the window of the newsagent at Essen Mainline Station reads: „You can read? Make something of it!“
But it nicely sums up the irony of things. I estimate the amount of people passing this sign every day, who will actually be able to gather the meaning to be at roughly 50%.
If I have to think about all the school kids, that I only randomly meet… this quota will sink furthter.
I do not think, I am being pessimistic, by the way.
Remain vigilant. Maybe learn reading or something!
