We have a great refuse collection system in our town, rubbush gets collected weekly, and recycling and garden waste fortnightly (on opposite weeks). So far, so good.

I have lived here all my life, paid my council tax on time every time, I am a good citizen.

I forgot to put the bins out last night, which isn't a problem normally, as they wagoon normally comes mid morning to our side of the road and mid afternoon on the opposite side.

As I was getting dressed, the landfill wagoon turns up and collects from both side of the road shock - first time evah.

So I am now stuck with a brimmed gofaster bin of landfill.

I called the council and complained, and asked the wagoon to pop back later in the day to empty my bin at the normal time.

The man refused. shock I told him I was an important member of the local community, and I didn't drive a 4x4, and ignored best before dates , and as such deserved special consideration.

He still refused.

He called me madam, too.


AIBU to think he should lose his job and go on Santa's naughty list for his disrespectful behaviour to a long-standing and valued customer?

We had something similar a few years back, they came really early and our bin wasn't out. Dh rang and they refused too, until dh politely informed them if they didn't the rubbish bin would be delivered to and emptied in the foyer of the council offices. They sent out another truck.

Yanbu, Santa needs to be informed.

You loon. grin You know people are going to take you seriously and give you loads of abuse and humfy faces, don't you?

hmm you do this a lot.

Are you a masochist?


Actually, I do have an overflowing bin. I'm heading to the recyc tomorrow with a stinky bin liner in the boot. The car will smell like week old kippers and epoisses de bourgogne for the next three weeks (despite neither being in the bag hmm )

His name should be written in Santa's black book so he only gets coal at Christmas

Now listen Madam, if you hadn't gone outside whilst "getting dressed" perhaps the poor refuse collectors wouldn't have been traumatised by your bare breasts wagging in the wind and would have taken your bin. Think on.

Chaos - thread hijack but wasn't it you who had the car "mishap" - if not sorry but if it was how did you get on?
