Green led council.

Hate cars but can't do without the millions they gain from them.

council bin men WHO INSIST ON SLOWLY WORKING THEIR WAY THROUGH A SECTION CONTROLLED BY TTL'S

10 minutes later traffic finally able to get through

why couldn't they just get the road works blokes to move a few cones so they could park in the middle allowing traffic through whilst emptying the bins

surely more than one tester is qualified so shouldn't it be business as normal ?

Drivers carding customers.

Especially drivers who have only been on the circuit a short time. [-X

I once got nagged into letting a drivers mate who was running a burger van come on board to earn a little extra. 1st day he was carding customers so he lasted 1 day. Apparently the two had a plan to card all the customers then leave and set up on their own expecting the customers to come with them

Council roadsweeper drivers

monday went to turn into one way street and he was coming down it wrong way

wednesday was on the rank dealing with a phone call he starts beeping at me so i carry on dealing with the call then he starts banging on the window yelling at me to pull off the rank so he can sweep there.

Our council has very strong enforcement against anyone who is rude or abusive to it's staff but it seems the reverse is not true
