This story was discussed yesterday on Russian blogs. Lobbies in many Russian houses are very small, which comes from Soviet times, during that era Russian authorities thought that people don’t need any luxury or excess comfort so the lobby in the typical Soviet house of 70s was so to say not big. Also during 1960-70s a lot of “temporary” 5 stored houses were built. At that times there was a belief that Russian people just a few steps away from the total Communism and full abundance, and so that to commit those few steps state built houses just for a while, for a few years, that were planned to be replaced after the Communism would come into play to the big nice houses. Years passed, Soviet Union collapsed, state became capitalistic and all seemed to forget about the real purpose of those residential structures – almost all of these houses are still intact and inhabited and people even don’t mind living there.
So in one of such houses there lived a young mother leaving her stroller down. The neighbors were against, though were not saying this into her face, rather making some things when she was not looking, like, as she was saying:
“First they became putting different crap in my stroller: cigarette butts, water, other garbage. We cleared it up, and put an announcement asking neighbors to send all their questions directly to us and leave the stroller. The neighbors got quit for a while, but then they started another action: they became throwing the stroller downstairs, so we had to tie it to the wall. Then the neighbors decided to tie the stroller too with their own lock. We had to break their lock with applier. Then they spoiled our lock. So we decided to check who is that neighbor doing all this. Put the webcam, connected it to the PC to record the movement, put the stroller back down there and started watching. Of course, we have missed everything, but then checked the records and here are they…”
Then Russian readers of lady blog got divided in two parts. First expressed sympathy to the young mother and were cursing her neighbors, others on contrary started threads about how bad was she causing the neighbors discomfort with that baby stroller.
We have only the video to see.
