Not the Nine O’clock News

Posted in Other Stuff by 200

It seems the police aren’t the only ones these days with targets which do more harm than good. How else to explain the actions of council wardens in west Sussex.

57-year-old grandmother, Barbara Jubb was pushing her granddaughter in a pram when the 20-month-old, Emily, dropped her bag of Quavers. 

Dutifulyy, Mrs Jubb picked up the bag but 2 quavers fell out onto the path. As it was raining the Quavers started to disintegrate & that’s when Mrs Jubb made her fatal error; instead of disposing of the 2 errant Quavers in a responsile manner, she kicked them into the gutter there to dissolve into small-snack heaven. 

Fortunately for the local council bean-counters, two eagle-eyed councl wardens were on hand to issue an £80 fine for litter. Another triumph for truth & justice.

The grandmother was last seen leaving the town centre trying her best to avoid picking up further fines for ‘walking on the cracks in the pavement’ & ‘looking at people in a funny way’.

    Another triumph for truth & justice. Enough said. There is a bit of a pattern emerging, rain destroying evidence, chalk, quavers, where will it ever stop ?

    This lady needs to contest the fine on the basis that littering is the “thoughtless or improper” disposal of waste, and that being rained on in the gutter is a perfectly proper and considerate end for a pair of quavers.
