tall poppy syndrome


I don't know what irks me more: the waiting taxi drivers and their rubbish or the tree stump. This stump is one of the many that line the shopping district street. On a hot day, you're supposed to be able to sit and shelter yourself from the rays of the sun. Now, you can sit on hot concrete as you develop boils on your bum as you take a break from excessive shopping. Unless its night where you can be a resting taxi driver ignoring the passengers waiting 10 feet away at the Taxi stand.

Please tell us why they cut down the tree and what is the plan for the plots now?

The trees were cut down because they were hazardous to the traffic and people. The rains here are heavy and branches tend to snap and fall on the road. So, instead of constant trimming, City Hall decided it would be best to cut them altogether. And what you see in the picture is how they'll be from now on.
