Council Communications

Couple of weeks back we got a communication from our local council saying that the rubbish collection for our street would be made on Thursdays instead of Fridays. This change is due to staffing issues and hence would be a temporary one for about 3 weeks or so after which the normal schedule would resume. That communication also asked us to raise our objections, if any on the same. I wonder what kind of objection one may possibly have for this and why should the council waste money & paper for frivulous matter of this kind.

But then, you would never know what is important to whom. Few years back, when I first came into UK, I got a letter from the council asking whether it is fine with me if they change the bulb in the street lamps in our road at a particular time & day. The reason for such a letter was that one of the street lamps was right in front of our house and the person climbing up the lamp post for changing the bulb would have a good view of the first floor of the house if the curtains were not drawn. The council wanted to make sure that we are aware of the above and should it be inconvenient for the occupants of the house, they were happy to change the bulb at a different date. Doesn’t that sound cool?

  1. Yes thats defntly cool.
    I was surprised when I recently read a story in Metro about a security CCTV installed just outside a apartment bedroom. Thought the security CCTV was facing the street the bedroom was very much in focus….

  3. Hmmmm but wonder why they didn’t just write to the people in the first house to whom it would matter. Avasiyam aanadhukku ellam ezhudhaa maataanga ipdi mattum neratha waste pannuvannu me thinks, sorry.

  4. PWD people or any other persons working for the public, dont think they are doing a service to the public (Its called Public Service, for God’s sake). They just think they are doing their Job. That is the problem.

  5. In line with the last comment…
    once I went to a shop and bargained for a lower price. The sales man obliged bcos, it was obviously priced high. Immediately, he started forcing me to take up a chit scheme, which I refused. He said “hello, I am doing a **favour** to you by reducing the price, why don’t you…” Not sure, if he (the shop) ever would realise that they don’t do any favours to customers by giving the items in the proper price.
