Hundreds of pensioners crowd three days a week, as early as 4 am, to get free bread from the Pensioners Omenia Mutual Help House in the Rahova district, Bucharest, reminiscence of the communist-era endless queues. Here, every week, a strange type of party also occurs. Beyond the sad looks, those several hundreds pensioners that stand in line crack a joke and chat. The old men guard their coupons like their most precious belongings. Ion Repezis (86) think that, sometimes, people that gather here is âpervertâ when it comes to the little pieces of paper. âSome donât care others got here earlier. This is not understandable since they cannot take more than others because only two are given away per person so everybody can get a loaf. It all comes down to respect, but here we act like cattleâ.
