Whether and by how much now Belgrade has “turned out” to be the largest village in Serbia, a controversy arose because of an announcement that appeared on Twitter.
The city is empty for the holidays and everyone repeats as a mantra: “Belgrade citizens have gone home”. And who are the REAL CITIZENS OF BELGRADE?
Yes… the city is empty because the “CITIZENS OF BELGRADE” WENT HOME. How much longer are you divided into Belgraders and “Belgradeans”!?
Until now, we have seen all kinds of things that people keep in the corridors of buildings – from dryers with laundry, shoes in front of the door, garbage bags waiting to be thrown into the container… but the scene recorded in the building on Čukarica is unprecedented!
“You come to Belgrade to live with your habits from the village, carry firewood to the 4th floor, and turn the hallway into a flea market”: All kinds of people work in buildings, but this is UNSEEN! (PHOTO)
“Šavnička 14, you come to Belgrade to live with your habits from the village, carry firewood to the fourth floor, and turn the corridor into a flea market,” read the post of the Twitter user with all the attached photos.
Namely, one tenant in front of the building on Čukarica keeps several meters of wood, finely split, covered and ready for burning. After that, violent reactions followed, and “Belgrade is the biggest village in Serbia!” is one of the most common.
Comments continued to pour in condemning such habits…
“In the villages, at least the yards and houses are tidy…”
“Wanna be a cosmopolitan city and in fact the largest village and cancer of Serbia. Phew”, “Absolute unculture of living”. “What are you talking about? There are no real Belgraders anymore because they died a long time ago, and those who call themselves Belgraders should remember their origins. And, if you compare the village and Belgrade, at least the yards and houses in the villages are arranged luxuriously, and There is chaos in Belgrade, both in the yards and in the apartments.”
The following followed:
“You throw a man out of a province, but they make a province out of a man, and that’s a little more difficult”.
“It’s a good thing that this city still survives, considering everything that moved and settled in it and what kind of “persons” walk the streets!”.
“Burning wood in residential buildings should be banned. I have one too. The smell of smoke and soot is terrible, you can’t open a human window. I have nothing against small chests of drawers, if the common space is shared by two apartments and the neighbors agree. Garbage bags are not come into consideration.”
Although most of them condemned this behavior, there were also those who found justification.
“If the building has a chimney, he has the right to heat it with wood. He may keep the wood in the basement, not in the hallway. If the central heating was valid, he would not have checked out. In order to check out, all tenants must give their consent. As soon as they does that mean he’s a good neighbor.”
“This is poverty, not that someone is from the village. After all, if someone heats with wood, there is probably a chimney in the building, so it is allowed. This does not prevent anyone from heating with wood. On the other hand, they must be stored in the basement and not on the passage and corridor. That is already a matter of sloppiness.”
“Only this has nothing to do with ‘village’ habits. Village habits are not a terrace full of garbage, an apartment full of excrement and animals that spreads unpleasant odors throughout the building, etc. (the animals are not to blame, let’s face it). This is a peculiarity and social unculture and rudeness”.
“Pepper is dried on the terraces, plastic is kept, garbage…”
Some also shared their experiences.
“I live in a new, ‘smart’ building in Voždovac. Pepper is dried on the terraces, plastic is kept, garbage is kept. There are shoes in front of some people’s doors. And I don’t know why I should be annoyed and disgusted now? I don’t see how will these habits of my neighbors affect the quality of my life.”
