Watch out!: 危なすぎ、、

Dave, an owner of Greenfish Cafe asked if Sue and I did not mind changing our seats to a table close to the counter, i.e. away from the windows, when the last time we went there to have lunch. He pointed out outside and told us to look up, and there was this huge metal hanging on the top of the building in front of the cafe (See the photos right and below)! Because it was such a windy (and rainy) day, the metal thing was actually moving!! Looked dead scary.
先日のグリーンフィッシュカフェでの出来事。
道路沿いの窓際の席に座っていたら、オーナーのデイヴから、できるだけ窓から離れたテーブルに座って欲しいと頼まれた。理由は、向かいのビルディングサイト。なんだかしらないけど、大きなメタルがビルの天辺でゆらゆら揺れている(写真右と下)!!ひやっ。雨が降って風がきつい日だったから、デイヴが心配するのもよくわかる。

Dave didn't think it would happen, but he wanted to be really sure that nobody in the cafe was going to be hurt in case if the metal thing fell off. We presumed that workers/builders on this building site must have been rushing off to finish work on Friday and have forgotten to put it away, but you don't forget things like this, just don't. It'd be too late if something happens and someone was injured! The metal thing was safely removed, and evertying looked going back to normal after Dave called a security compnay, I heard somebody's shouting drunkenly outside.
金曜日は誰もが早く帰りたいから、片付け忘れたんだろうと思うけど、忘れたじゃすまされない。何かが起こってからじゃ遅すぎるよ~。デイブがセキュリティ会社に電話して一件落着と思ったら今度はなんだかしらないけど、外が騒がしい。

A few customers in the cafe asked Dave to call a police, as these people outside (people living in streets) were drunk and peeing outside of the cafe!! Disgraceful.
どうも浮浪者もしくは酔っ払いさん達がなにかしてるらしい。他のお客さんが嫌がってデイヴに警察に電話するようお願いしているのを聞いてると、どうも彼らはカフェの外で用をたしたりしていたらしい。うげっ。

First an ambulance came and tried to make them move, but they didn't. Then a police came and tried even harder, but they just didn't move!! They refused to go neither with the ambulance nor with the police! I started to laugh at this point. I was glad I could see a funny side of this, although I knew this wasn't funny at all for the cafe :) Both the ambulance and the police, they just left them there. It is surprising to know that apparently they can't force to take them with them.
まずは、救急車がやってきたけど、いっこうに動く気配のない彼ら。そして警察も来たのにまだどかない。この時点で、かなり笑えてきた。救急車がまず去っていき、とうとう警察も彼らを置いていってしまった。驚いたのは、警察も病院も強制的に彼らを連行できないということ。

Hmmm, even though Liverpool's chosen as a Capital City of Europ for 2008, it seems a lot more needs to be done, doesn't it? xxx
こんなことが日常茶飯事に起こってるなんて、Capital City of Europeに選ばれてもぜんぜんだめだね、Liverpool、、、。 xxx
