The Pimply Minions Rebellion of 2010…

January 4th, 2011

Christmas Edition:

I’ve lost a cat before, and putting up notices around the neighbourhood is the best way to notify the area that the cat is likely lost in of the whereabouts of the cat’s owner.article-1343679-0ca24f5c000005dc-159_468x314

A couple of years ago we found a dog, put up notices, and returned the dog to a dad and his crying child within two hours of finding him (he was a sweet dog, too: we kind of hoped we didn’t find an owner).  The mother in that family is now our mail person: we get excellent service from Canada Post. It all comes from living in a neighbourhood:

Desperate to find his missing cat Wookie, Mike Harding put up posters throughout the neighbourhood offering a reward for its safe return.

And it was not long before he received a phone call.

Not from someone who had found the pet, however, but from the council saying he was breaking the law.

Take the posters down by Christmas Eve, the Dec 23rd letter proclaimed from on high, or face a
£1,000 fine.  “You would think the council would have some compassion,” Harding said. No actually Mike, you wouldn’t: they never do. That’s the mistake people constantly make.

Have you ever noticed “bureaucrats” sounds a lot like  “bastards”?
