My neighbour.

Not content with reporting me to plod for having 2 cars on SORN & for having CCTV cameras on the front of my house he has now reported me to our local environmental health dept.

The reason?

He says that smoke from our living room log burner is escaping from our chimney (which is the whole idea of a chimney I thought) & is getting into his house!!!!

Apparently we should be burning smokeless wood & we should be taking him into consideration before lighting our fire......

Says he has video evidence, which he is refusing to show anyone, of smoke going from our chimney into his living room.

The fact that four of the houses around him have wood burners has been ignored by him.

Quite what I am expected to do is beyond me so I am awaiting a visit from the clipboard wielding squad.

So I nominate my NDN as knob of the month.

one of our neighbours has a log burner and either doesn't know how to use it, or is using the wrong fuel. If we have a window open when he has it lit, then the entire of the inside of our house stinks, clothes, everything. To be honest it hasn't been that noticeable this Winter, maybe someone else has had a word.

Thing is you can’t smell anything from any of the four burners. The smoke, which is minimal anyway, dissipates almost immediately.

I don’t see how he has managed to video the small amount of smoke going from the chimney 8nto his house - he is either very clever or has an extremely good quality video recorder.

The mind boggles as he has only reported me. No one else.

Oh well. I wonder wha5 he will report me for next week????

People parking in parent & child spaces when they don’t kids annoys me. Especially when it’s people with a blue badge who seem too think that they can park anywhere because the badge entitles them to do just that.

Knobs.

2 into 1 lane.
One car slightly in front of me, so I don't impede them. Let off slightly to let them have the place. Old woman in Qashqai sees this and accelerates past me to basically tailgate the car I'm letting in. Forcing me to actually stop.

I give it the horn. And a WTF motion
She gives me the finger in response. Her husband/son/carer in the passenger side gives it all the coffee beans too. But once I wave my arms around a lot (for effect) they soon maintain eyes forward laugh

They turned left about 300m further down so as I passed them, I slowed and gave them the daggers. I may have even mouthed "dhead" laugh He's not engaging. biggrin But as I accelerate away. She's leaning on the horn like a retard!


Too little, too late, you blue waffle bag laugh
Did you forget to take your maturity pill that morning?

Having read the explanatory booklet that came with my blue badge, that is pretty much what the badge entitles me to.

It's just really inconvenient that to have that entitlement I have to be disabled.

Fair comment & I apologise for any offence caused.

It’s the lack of common sense by some blue badge holders that irritates me.

They usually have to park in the 'parent and child' spaces because some twunt in a big 4x4 and a white van man have parked in the disabled spaces because 'they will only be a minute'

You might want to read it again - it gives you no such right especially in private car parks/on private roads where many blue badge holders become unstuck because they have the “it lets me pretty much park anywhere” attitude.

Not disputing the validity / terribleness of disability however do have a huge problem with blue badge holders parking in my residents parking space so it’s a bit of a sore subject!

On Saturday there was a very minor collision on a road only wide enough for one car due to larked cars. A chap who looked in his 60s had clipped a parked car as he passed. Now credit where it’s due he found the owner of the car, not many people do nowadays.
What made him a knob though is he left his car blocking the road so everyone had to drive up the pavement. I suggested he moves his car out of the way as it wasn’t badly damaged, this was met with “there’s been an accident now fk off!”
Now I didn’t argue with him but why do people have minor accidents and just leave their cars blocking the road?

Care to quantify your quote?

I assume that the old buses you drive are electrically powered?

I thought not.

I had same on the M6 at rush hour absolute standstill/crawling for miles came across the reason, a car had gone into the back of another with not even a dented bumpers worth of damage but they sat in lane 3 changing details causing havoc behind.

Proper wood being burned can smell quite nice, in a countryside kind of way. One of our neighbours seems to chuck all kinds of random crap, including plastic, on theirs though, which absolutely stinks.

In winter, Wood burners make up 10 percent of local pollution in London
and a stove emits 6 times that of a diesel truck
