This is how a queue forms in Cuba
The government of Guantánamo has taken a measure that has fallen like a bucket of cold water among consumers, who have already made up their minds that the queue to buy gas balitas in the city will be "largaaaa".
As reported by the newspaper Venceremos, since last Monday, March 4 all customers are required to buy the gas balita in the same office: the Commercial House of the city of Guantánamo, located on Paseo between Carlos Manuel and Luz Caballero, in full center.
That means they want to concentrate all the sales of a city with more than 200,000 inhabitants in one place. However, the authorities have not explained to what the measure is due.
They have only limited to explain that the clients must present the identity card and the supply booklet and ensure that the address of both coincide. They will also monitor that the number of the balita corresponds to that of the previous sale.
Although they want to concentrate all the sales in one establishment, the opening hours do not reach eight hours a day. Now it will open on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 7:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursdays, from 12:00 pm to 7:00 pm and Saturdays from 8:00 am to 11:30 am.
The first to protest was an Internet user who calls himself Dr Lafita: "I imagine that all these changes are due to give a better attention to the population, a complete Guantánamo in one place! Of course, to get there, everyone has to get There will be a spacious room, at least with a fan and water to drink and the automated attention will be very fast, we will see, "he wrote on the website of the newspaper Venceremos.
Pedro, another Internet user, asked without receiving a response, when it is expected that the gas service will reach all the municipalities of the province.
A third reader feared that these kinds of measures are taken without thinking about the consequences. "Hiring in one place, I guess that means making a long queue, because the city of Guantanamo is not small and liquefied gas is in great demand, I imagine there are problems at the points, but I am afraid that now with this centralized form, apart to have to move to the center, it is a single place, as the three musketeers say, all for one and one for all, they must look well that fixing one problem does not generate another or others (do not forget what they live to profit from the order of queues in various vital services and nobody prevents them until now) ".
