At our attempt to backfill the top part of the site a number of neighbours* have blocked the road in (It’s only one way unfortunately) on the grounds that our lorry is damaging the road.
I have sympathy but they seem to have ignored the fact that the road in question has not been maintained since 1955.
“Repair it” they demand.
“Good idea – I am prepared to contribute equally are you?”
Fine… that if they want to block access to my property this can work two ways. I can park the lorry further down and wait until they want to get out.
But I won’t. Instead I will use a smaller lorry – car sized. One that will make more journeys with the same overall weight of earth over a longer period of time.
And my caring sharing neighbours can go fuck themselves.
*The two households that all neighbourhoods seem to have that talk themselves up into a confrontation.
