And For Once, I Agree With The Police...

A woman was furious at being told to f*** off after politely asking two rag and bone men to clean up the ‘huge poo’ left on her front lawn by their horse Thursday morning.
Lesley Sitchett, of Gerda Road, New Eltham, said she witnessed the animal offload onto her lawn and was subsequently ‘given the finger’ by the youths.
Yup, I'd be furious too. But would I call the police?
Mrs Sitchett claims the police were unresponsive upon telling them about the incident which left her with excrement outside her house.
No. No, I wouldn't.

It would go against the grain of genuine scavengers, to squander a much-sought gardeners' item and leave it at the roadside.

And given the offensive response to Mrs Sitchett, the tiny possibility of opportunistic 'travelling' thieves masquerading as 'rag and bone' men, cannot be ruled out. Nothing is more effective for cooling plod blood.

Quite honestly I'd have been grateful for the gift my roses could use the fertilizer.
Admittedly I would not have been thrilled at the way I came about the gift but "never look a gift horse in the mouth" couldn't resist that pun sorry Julia.

Following the link to the story, my attention was drawn to the report of a man who died when a vibrator became stuck in his bottom.....

She could always have shovelled it up and thrown onto the cart. After all, she would only be returning their property.

Put aside the fact in reality I'd put it on my garden. If I didn't then what can I do?

Plod don't let us deal with it. So they should.

How else do you get this resolved then? These people clearly have no interest in clearing up after themselves. Do I have to do it?

And if you did call Her Majesty's finest, the result would be "Well, Madam, we've had a word with the horse about its behaviour, and warned it that this mustn't happen again!"...

The platform for an 'educatid proffesional wot noes best' is now vacant, Jaded.

It could be good for my apple trees, although I would rather if it happened in winter. I didn't know rag and bone men still existed.

Too busy dealing with Rotherham to investigate this load of s**t.

PS Melvin don't put this stuff on your lawn,it will grow like mad and how will you cut it?

Plod turned a blind eye in Rotherham but WC Jaded's cunning plan to balance the crime figures will see ten thousand Essex blacks stopped and searched to average things out.

Don't work in Essex Melvin. Keep taking the tablets.

Hey Melv, there's a new cemetery just opened up off the A20 in New Eltham - book a plot quick and we'll ensure every TGB let's his horse take a dump on you. I'll cut the grass on your plot...promise.

A space burial would be far more consistent with my habit of looking down on plod, Jaded.

Hey melv!

It wasn't you with a vibrator stuck up yer arse? Ah, no, that bloke died! Be careful !!!

I agree, Kath. A simple job to shovel it where needed. I like the pun too.

Well, indeed! A much sought-after item when real rag & bone men were around...

"... my attention was drawn to the report of a man who died when a vibrator became stuck in his bottom....."

Who's wouldn't be..? ;)
