"IN DOG YEARS, I`M DEAD"
Wednesday, May 18, 2011
We have been on less than half pressure for a month, ever since Scottish Water effected a "repair" at the derelict house next door. Water is gushing down the road. You would think the problem would be very evident.
Due possibly to my constant emails, but probably to the fury of my Rich Neighbour down the hill, who has a mansion with a pool, an outdoor hot tub, jacuzzis and a facility for swimming horses, all of which need full pressure, last week a load of numpties was decanted at the leak area, and proceeded to attempt to find it. My Good Neighbour phoned me the progress. Eventually they were reduced to using a water diviner - "They`re using bent coathangers now!" my neighbour gasped incredulously.
Today they came back with a digger and tools. Progress at last. The Customer Satisfaction Numpty was very encouraging......
And then the Supreme Numpty arrived. The Health and Safety man.
"Beware of buried cables!" he thundered.
All our phone and electricity cables are overhead and clearly visible.
They all packed up at once and left.
I can see I will not be using the hose in the foreseeable future.
Which is a pity, as I am beseiged by teenage gangs, who throw missiles and vandalise the place.
Things got so scary the other night that I was reduced to phoning 999 (like 911 in the US). And what happened?
Two hours later the police phoned back offering me an appointment to see a policeman the next day. That`s what constitutes an emergency service here nowadays.
Altogether, things are not too good here.
I might try my MSP on this problem.
