Termination Telegram

There is a quarterteapot crisis in the middle of quarantine. The biggest idol falls, will his fans give him a telegram of dismissal?


The Mona Jiménez is the character that gives us the most joy and anecdotes. It is the icon of Cordoba par excellence, our representative and our mentor. However, this does not leave him without making controversial decisions, which put him intoquestion. Many times he moved forward with his followers, taking macho positions. On this occasion, it is the dismissal of his employees that makes him miss.

In the midst of quarantine and global crisis, the famous singer decides to fire his band. That — it's worth clarifying — is the one that accompanied him formore than twenty years in the shows. On every stage he got on and, above all, on every Friday of Sergeant Cabral. In addition, it is a team of 45 people . Among musicians, leads, sound players, photographers and technicians. People, with their respective families, who worked in white and today, in the midst of crisis, are unemployed. Some of them have been working with the Mona for more than 53 years . Others are newer. According to some of the band's voices, the dismissals were “by common accord.”

Obviously, as appropriate, they will receive compensation for the years of seniority. This does not change the situation of these families today, who are unemployed in full crisis.

So say some of the stanzas of the quartetazo “Telegrama de Dismissal” by Carlos “La Mona” Jiménez:

A telegram of dismissal

telling me not to go to work

that left me without a present or future

My family without pride and dignity

A telegram of dismissal

and like a child I started to cry...

As if I were a waste, an old rag

like that would throw me into the street without hesitation

Who cares about my suffering

if in the statistics I'm just one more


How do I explain to my family


maybe tomorrow I may miss the bread

. It's twenty years, almost a life

that I gave to that factory


but it seems that nothing counts

so says this paper


What irony!

In the composition of this letter, the Mona demonstrates social consciousness. Prove, as in other occasions, to know what means running out of work and being head of family. However, in this case, he didn't seem to care. And he did fire his employees just like that.

This led to controversy. The media announced the situation and even Carlos Jiménez's lawyer came out to speak. Whatever happens, the Quartteque community expressed its repudiation of the singer's actions through social networks. But he also received messages of support from his followers in the midst of controversy. There is talk of a crisis
