Thing I love vs. Thing I hate

Thing I love: Protests.
So, most people hate them. I love them. There is nothing better than when people here get all hot and bothered and picket. It happens quite often. In fact, we are just entering "protest season" here in Nantes. I'm not sure if it is all over France, but I have been informed that March is a heavy protest time. Last month I went to a protest downtown (by accident actually) that involved 20,000 people. It was like a fucking parade. And, it wasn't violent at all.

Thing I hate: Protests.
Yes, it's contradictory. Let me be specific. I hate it when the train workers protest. They always do it on a Friday so your weekend travel plans are screwed. I'm sorry, but it's not my fault. It's just not my fault.
