What's knocked your duck off today?

Recommended Posts

20 bags of fly tipped household rubbish in the woods opposite our house.Another mile and the moron could have got to the council tip.

 

We maintain all the dump it sites and the lazy ...... even dump by the gates, who would drive all the way there to fly tip? ...

Have you tried ringing 101?

 

Rang Street Force.Got re directed to Streets Ahead and was given a ref no.

I was very impressed when within 2 hours a Keir pick up truck arrived and parked at the side of the rubbish.

Not so impressed when it then drove away again without doing anything.

I await developments,but my anger is still directed at the morons who can do this rather than at the poor souls who have to tidy up after them.

The other day we went for a walk round Redmires Dam,and saw a big TV dumped over a wall and some old carpeting abandoned at the end of the road.

Now that's not even a convenient drive from Lodge Moor.

Sometimes I despair.

I found out my dentist had joined forces with another practice and my appointment for tomorrow had been changed from my usual dentist to one of the other practice. I cancelled and am going Thursday instead to see my dentist.

 

It is not being petty, it is that my dentist specialises in people who are a bit nervous of going there, I don't know if the other does. If I find out they do then I won't mind seeing them next time.

They may well. Have taken a sample bag to try to trace the culprit and put the onus on them to clean it up.
