Rubbish I can’t see it!
04 Jul 2013
During the summer when our student tenants were absent I noticed various items ensconced behind hedgerows.
Taking it upon myself to spend the day clearing the entire estate I eventually unearthed 14 trolleys, a dozen highway signs and some discarded barbeques etc. I placed all this ready for the trolley hotline service to recover the trolleys and highways department to remove the signs etc.
Meantime an angry neighbour demanded to know who I was, but before I could answer went on to demand to know what was going to happen to all the rubbish. I could hardly get a word in edgeways he was so angry.
All the while the rubbish was concealed he was not complaining but now that I had unearthed it, he was furious.
It was always there, it is not like I went out of my way to dump the rubbish. But now it was in a heap it was unsightly.
