Engano urbano

    Século vinte e um. Tecnologia avançadíssima, bastando apenas um toque de dedos para clicar algum botão e, de repente, abre-se, à nossa frente, um mundo mágico…
            Contrastando a isso, o básico do básico parece ficar esquecido, relegado a um canto de tanto ser básico, e, assim desaprendemos ou nem aprendemos a lidar com o banal, perdendo-se então o controle de todo controle…
            Caminho pela ladeira com o molho de chaves do apartamento que acabei de receber da imobiliária, a fim de alugá-lo, caso seja do nosso agrado: meu e do meu companheiro.
            Muito embora muitas avenidas já possuam controle de semáforo, para que o pedestre atravesse em “segurança”, além de faixas exclusivas para ônibus, alguns bairros parecem pertencer a outro país, tamanha é sua deficiência básica: falta iluminação nas ruas, redes de esgoto e água, asfalto… faltas essas que favorecem à “sobra” da violência que se espalha na escuridão dos becos, nos assaltos, estupros, assassinatos…
            São 10 horas da manhã de uma radiante quarta-feira de primavera e nós vamos seguindo ruas, virando esquinas até encontrarmos a entrada do prédio.
            Com o molho de chaves na mão, não foi muito difícil achar a pequena chave que abre a portaria. Subimos as escadas e lá está o número do apartamento: 202. Já, a chave da porta confunde-se com outras que se encontram no chaveiro. Porém, estamos com tempo, e, assim, vamos testando pacientemente a chave que abrirá a porta.
            De repente, a porta dos fundos do mesmo apartamento abre-se abruptamente e um homem com um calibre 38 na mão, avança em nossa direção, enquanto berra:
            _ Parados aí! Como se atrevem a abrir o meu apartamento?
           Ainda não sei descrever, ao certo, a sensação de pânico que nos invadiu. Mas já era capaz de sentir a bala do revólver estilhaçando nosso corpo e o sangue rolando escada abaixo.
           A voz para a explicação teve de ser arrancada à força de dentro da garganta, já que o susto a sufocara:
       _ Peraí, moço, somos gente boa! Recebemos a chave da imobiliária e viemos conhecer o apartamento para alugá-lo…
            _ Como é que é? Alugar o apartamento que aluguei há um mês?
            _ O senhor já mora aí?
            _ Claro! O que eu estaria fazendo lá dentro se não morasse aqui?
            _ Bem, nesse caso, entregaram-nos a chave do apartamento errado. O senhor sabe se tem outro apartamento aqui para alugar?
            _ Não tem. Tenho certeza.
            Bruscamente ele tomou o molho de chaves da nossa mão e buscou conferir se alguma chave abria a sua porta. Achou e a abriu.
            Não acreditou. Nem nós acreditamos.
            Ele, por saber da insegurança em que se encontrava, achando-se seguro dentro de casa, ao menos.
           Nós, por saber que poderíamos ter sido mortos ao nos confundir com um assaltante, quando apenas buscávamos por mais segurança.
           Estupefatos ao devolver o molho de chaves e dedicar à imobiliária alguns desaforos, fomos surpreendidos pela funcionária que nos afirmou que enganos como esse acontecem vez por outra.
           Esse tipo de erro é urbano, e desumano!
            “Bala perdida mata criança no Rio.”
            “Brasileiro é morto por engano, ao ser confundido com terrorista.”
            “Pedreiro fica preso por engano durante dois anos.”
            “Dentista negro confundido com traficante é assassinado pela polícia.”

  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this matter to be really something that I
    think I would never understand. It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  2. I think that what you posted was actually very reasonable. However, think about this, what
    if you typed a catchier title? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your website, however what if you
    added a post title that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean Engano

    is kinda vanilla. You should look at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create article titles to grab people interested.
    You might add a related video or a related pic
    or two to grab readers excited about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it would bring your blog a little livelier.

  8. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched
    her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

  18. First off I would like to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
    I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.

    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Thank you!
