what a farce

for years we have been naggin the council to come and resurface the road where i live as it is in a really dreadful state, so finally we get a letter saying they were coming to do it yesterday, we had to be out of the street by 8am and back at 6 so off i tootles to work 2 hours early, gets a phone call off dad to say the street was coming along fine BUT just outside our house the contractors had managed to fracture the water main WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! so i comes home to half the street finished, water pouring down the road, nowhere to park except in someone else's space, a huge hole outside my door and i had to wade across the water to get to the house GRRRRRRRRRRR so when will they come and sort it out, well the workmen have reported it to northumbria water, they have to fix the pipe before the contractors can come and finish the road, so fast forward to tonight (and goodness knows how many gallons of water wasted down the drain) and the water is still there, the hole is still there and i still can't get parked, so northumbria water have had a snotty email, so have the council and so has my local councillor and the mayor, and guess what they will be getting another one tomorrow and the next day and the next day until it get's sorted LOL

i wonder if look north would be interested LOL
