HS: If it's broken, fix it

A new feature, in which I bitch about broken stuff.

Left Stalingrad on foot, because Jaurès metro station on line 2 is closed. Walked toward Colonel Fabien, hoping to find an automated public toilet (Sanisette).

A new model is being installed throughout the city, but they're still free, which means they tend not to work.

Found one on the place du Colonel Fabien, but no TP. Found another on the boulevard de la Villette at the métro entrance, and it was out of order.

And yesterday, at the Parc de la Villette, saw that the elevators on either side of the footbridge over the canal de l'Ourcq were, as usual, out of order. God forbid a handicapped person wants to enjoy the park... In the years the park has been open, I've been going there about once a month on average, and the elevators have been working on both sides for a total of 5 times. Maybe. Such BS.
