When I was a child I behaved like a child. When I was an adult I behaved like an adult.
Those words do not relate to Trinidadians.
For their entire lives Trinidadians want to behave like children.
That is the reason why our streets, drains, parking lots and beaches are always filthy. Trinidadians have not learned to grow up and be responsible adults. They live every day as carefree as children.
I once heard an Englishwoman say, “Give Trinidadians food, drink and music and they will live in the mess they make.” That was 50 years ago and it still applies today.
Responsible adults would go to work and put in a good day’s work for a good day’s wage; not Trinidadians. They go to work and idle all day, then get a good day’s pay. They want to enjoy two days of Carnival then need an extra day to cool down. T&T, of all the other Caribbean nations, has the most public holidays and they still want more. They think that sick leave is mandatory. They want annual leave, sick leave, casual leave and of course all the national holidays as well as Carnival. That leaves them with ten months of work days per year.
