Outside my house is a man-hole cover.
It’s obviously falling apart, as is the surrounding tarmac, because it constantly – 24 hours a day – makes an horrendous clunking noise when vehicles go over it or a fly lands nearby.
I could go outside and video it but that would involve going outside and videoing it. Rather, look at this video someone else has done about a similar looking man-hole on their street.
The local council [Warwickshire] couldn’t care less – even though I sent them a photo of someone nearly breaking their neck tripping on it. Money grubbing Severn Trent, who it apparently belongs to, couldn’t care less either.
I plan to use fast acting resin to silence it or, like some bloke in New York, tip a load of sand over it. If I get done for it, I’ll plead insanity because the constant noise is driving me mad.
What do councils actually do for their money? Nowt.
