Serbia was struck again by disastrous floods after massive rainfall which caused the rivers and streams to flood. A large number of people has been evacuated from their homes in the southern part of the county, and footages and pictures of the struggling people went around the world. However, one video was massively shared on social networks and world media, and it is the reason we are called "idiots, morons, and crazy Serbs".
Footage from Novi Pazar stands out in the sea of terrible photos showing the terrors of the locals, who are trying to save the cattle and their property from the floods
It shows an excavator grabbing debris caught by the river, which was piled on one side of the bridge and it is moving it to the other side, where there is no "piling up". The river then takes the trash further on.
The footage of the excavator from the south of Serbia spread on social networks with lightning speed, and people can't believe that this really happened.
- Really? Really? Come on! - written in the description of the footage posted on the Facebook page "North Weather Europe", which reports about the weather across Europe.
And then, there were numerous comments.
"Very smart Serbs", "Instead of facing the problem, they are going around it", "Use your brain people", "Some people need more brain", "We have stupidity, and then we have this", are just some of the comments of the people from the entire world to this footage.
There were those who didn't hold back.
"That is a lovely country, but people behave like pigs, even worse", "Some people shouldn't be allowed to breathe", "I hope that the bridge will collapse", "Are they crazy?"...
Some of the people called us "stupid, crazy, idiots, morons, fools", while some of them just wrote, "Those are Serbs".
Many asked, why didn't they just transfer the garbage into a truck, instead of returning it to the river. They stated that this is the way we are polluting the planet, and people are the ones to blame the most.
The video shocked a lot of people in Serbia, who can't understand how can someone think of something like this.
Anyway, the footage was enough to show a bad image of us around to world, time and time again, and we are just "crazy Serbs, and it is expected to see it from us".
The question arises, did we become so dumb that we are no longer thinking about our actions or we simply don't care?
