Safety First

María got home after a long walk. Three starving kids and a drunk husband waited impatiently for her.
“Did you get the job?” her husband asked.
“What did you bring us, Mom?” one of the kids added.
“Yes, I got the job, and I did not bring you anything, sorry. I could not start today.
“Why not?” another kid asked.
“I have to take Yoga classes first,” the confused woman answered.
“What would a sanitation worker need yoga classes for?” an angry husband asked.
“I DON’T KNOW. They said something about stretching and the new transportation.
“Of, at least you will have transportation. That’s good,” the husband said. “The mayor always thinking about us, the people. That’s how it should be; safety first.”
“The mayor’s on the radio now,” said one of the kids.
“Speak of the devil, you see? Turn it up.”

With great efficiency, and complying with the guidelines of the president, N. M., in his policy on public services, the president of the municipal waste collection company, F. O., with essential contributions and the provision of an excellent human team, strive to comply with the cleaning and collection of solid waste in different areas of the jurisdiction, for the benefit of its inhabitants.

That is why as mayor, by virtue of my commitment to the people and without lowering the guard in the face of any adversity, I firmly believe in the common sense of the citizen in preserving the environment and call on them to minimize indiscriminate outbreaks of garbage in inappropriate places and to place the waste in the appropriate containers and places for it, until the opportune collection is carried out.

In this way, as municipal chief executive, I comply with love and conviction for municipal workers, granting them benefits and direct attention, like the family economic improvement through municipal enterprises, 7 day-temporary jobs and yoga classes in the search to improve the family economy and health, so hit by the enemies of the homeland.

This was my entry to @mariannewest and @latino.romano’s 5 Minute Freewrite: Sunday Prompt: yoga stretch. You can see the details here.

Note:

The radio announcement in the story was actually taken from official sources. Transcript of typical official statements as part of local government propaganda. It was slightly edited to add the yoga topic. Officially, the government has not recognized and will never recognize their responsibility in the decadent sanitary crisis situation they buried our towns and cities in. They have and will always veer the responsibility on the people.

Thanks for stopping by and reading.

Your reflections are excellent in which the lie given in the propaganda comes out, at least in your story one of your characters "the girl" assumes her responsibility to be a person of excellence. All of this deserves a !PIZZA. Cheers

Thanks, @felixgarciap
The characters, like many real people are burried in the official discourse. They buy into it and sell it to every one around them. Once in a while, some of these beings are hit hard by the cruel reality and react against their tormentors, but often times the victims blame those the party has hsitorically pointed at as responsible and they keep their submission intact
