Roma coppers

When in Rome…

I’m not a nostalgic, but can you remember a time when people did one thing at a time? When cops actually patrolled the streets? Now they chat to their girlfriends and scan the streets at the same time, kinda. Just looking at these two gents in Rome, it also had me wondering what has happened to the first-drink-of-the-evening-download-your-day ritual between people? I remember times when my dad plopped down at the kitchen table after work and recounted his entire day to my mom over a gin and tonic. So what happens to that conversation now? Now that mister Italian cop and his girlfriend have been in contact most of the day on their mobiles? When these gents come off their shift and meet their girlfriends for a coffee, seriously, what do they have left to chat about? What’s their new ritual?
