A whingy one
Well here I am with my second entry (and hopefully not my last) but I am sure that this entry will probably upset some people (sorry in advance if it does.)
I live in a very small cul-de-sac and live in the second house in from the main entrance. There is a school situated on the other side of the main road that our close leads off of, about a five minute walk. Now why would this bother me,you ask, being that distance away, well it's not the school but rather the mother/fathers on the school run. Yes THAT problem.
I am sorry and I haven't children of my own so do not have the problem of getting them to school BUT why do they have to park right outside my living room window. There is a new housing estate next to the school but they can not park there and have obviously received tickets or been clamped doing so. So they have decided to park here instead, even though it is clearly marked 'no parking' here too. They even have the cheek to park in resident's parking spaces or right under the no parking sign.
This can cause me numerous problems if trying to get out in my wheelchair or I come home from somewhere and one of them is parked in my space (which I need as I have the space to get the wheelchair down the side of the car easily). If the council would get their act together and come and replace my lockable post (which was incidently knocked down by one of their contractors) then this wouldn't be a problem. As well as this we have to put up with some of them looking straight in our window, screaming kids, or even better them screaming at their kids.
I have made numerous complaints to the council who's signs they are, but they say there isn't much they can do, how about contacting the school so they can send a note home to all the mums/dads or better still come around and give them tickets or clamp them here. gggggggggggrrrrrrrr
Sorry rant over and I suppose this is as much a moan about how useless the council is (aren't they all). Thanx for reading lol
