  1. Would appreciate it if they stopped sending me texts pestering me to book a vaccine.
  2. Love how they are only saying a 24 year old man has been arrested. Why not just say it's him?
  3. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-56511374 Oh dear! Not surprising, but still that's a huge blow! RIP Sheffield City Centre!
  4. Whether or not they are used to doing it is irrelevant. It's disgusting.
  5. I was doing some jobs there a few months back and actually witnessed someone in two different houses emptying a bin out of an upstairs window onto the pavement. Couldn't believe what I was seeing!
  6. Most people are in bed at that time. Most likely a fault rather than planned maintenance at that time anyway.
  7. Oh come on it's hardly likely is it, one extra bin bag in the wagon. In any case I strongly suspect they were fobbing me off as I cannot see the logic, even by SCC's standards, of having a list of bins to empty in an area except for one. No more likely they took umbrage with a member of the public pointing it out to them, or just couldn't be bothered. They empty the bins on the main road every day but this one is set back and is often left for weeks overflowing. A neighbour is reporting it all the time, but it still gets left.
  8. Does anyone know what the average price of an electrical inspection for a two bedroom terraced house is?
  9. Too literally without any using any initiative. If they've genuinely been told to ignore bins that need emptying but aren't on their "list", then that's ridiculous management.
  10. I've noticed more and more street bin full to brim and overflowing. There's one near my house that hadn't been emptied for weeks despite seeing the wagon most nights emptying others nearby. One night when I saw them I went out to tell them about it, they just said it wasn't on their list. Not on their list........ it's full!! Couldn't be bothered arguing and walked off, how can you argue with someone who has that logic. Talk about bone idle!
  11. There's nothing on roadworks.org map, I looked the other day as I was wondering as well. Been closed for at least two months without any work carried out. Not really acceptable.
  12. Going down. This should have been an easy 3 points but we've opened the bin and chucked them away 😡
  13. They'll be in good company, I've never been paid extra at weekends.
  14. Ah yes, we can't have those workmen working on a busy road at the quietest time of the week. No, leave it till Monday morning!
  15. Oh great 50mph! Funny I was on it the other day and thought to myself at least the last third of the parkway is 70. The whole parkway should be 70.
  16. If it's the Rivelin Dams you're on about then you're not actually allowed to swim in them, they belong to Yorkshire Water. It's also incredibly dangerous, water is drawn off from below and there can be strong undercurrents. They put fencing up last year on the wall near the main road, presumably to deter swimmers. I remember just the week before the number of cars parked up on the verge was ridiculous, it was during the warm spell last spring, although having said that the car park across the damn had been closed by YW.
  17. Well that wasn't forecast yesterday, not on BBC weather site anyway.
  18. Ah could well be, I wasn't aware of that. Thanks.
  19. Noticed this today going into town but can't see anything on news sites of anyone significant who's died?
