REWORD

Every damn morning, 7am, crash bang crash. I have a construction site next door so sleep ins are a thing of the past. How long does it take to put a second floor on a fucking house? But that's not the point of this post, a week or so ago a mini skip arrived out front of that house. The builders were filling it with broken bricks. I noticed later that day that someone had filled the bin with household crap, an old ironing board, some broken shelving etc etc. Having hired a few skips in my time I know that there's nothing more annoying than your neighbourhood taking liberties with the space inside your skip. So I felt for the builders, that sympathy ended when the builders just threw all of this crap onto the kerb in front of my place.

Words were exchanged, the crap was placed into the sulo bins in the lane way and the builders put up a sign. On this sign they warned of the end of the world should anyone fill their skip with unwanted items again, oh and a $1,500.00 fine. The what now? Not sure how they expect to enforce that last bit, but whatever. If the sign makes them feel empowered so be it. Only as the days went by I started to get really pissed off with this sign and its unenforceable threat. So I started to imagine witty comments I could deface it with. They'd be so witty I'd photograph them and put them on my blog....only last night somebody beat me to it.

The intent is there, they clearly feel the same way I do about this prophesy of doom and the tax imposed on it. Only as I was applauding them, I noticed the last word. A complete FAIL yet full of WIN at the same time....

Hold up - bagging out someone for spelling "reward" as "reword" but spelling "its" as "it's"?

Ahem.

Hey in my neighborhood putting stuff in a skip or on the verge is a form of charity. You are lucky to put stuff out before it's ripped from your hands.
