London is a great such place to live.

I've just had an email from a neighbour asking me to clear undergrowth in our garden pressing against her fence and causing damage. The housing is back to back Victorian terraces with short gardens to the rear. You have to be attentive when she complains because she works in a solicitor's practice. So I've given her a prompt polite reply:  

"Hi Lucy, I'm sorry to hear of your problem, but as we left London four years ago, you'll probably have better results talking to the owner of the property."

 

I so miss London.  Not!

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

Re: London is a great such place to live.

which part is rubbing you up the wrong way?

the asking of the undergrowth to be cleared?
or you receiving a letter for somewhere you don't live any more?

if it's the former then it's a fair request to be honest. if there is something causing damage to someone elses property then it's only fair to ask that it be rectified.

if it's the latter, then how did you even receive the letter? did they post it to your new address? or did they post it to the old address and it somehow got forwarded to your new address?

Re: London is a great such place to live.

ah email.
although one wonders that the neighbour didn't notice you not being there for 4 years.
guess you left a marked impression on them.

however, the original quesiton still stands, which part rubbed you up the wrong way?

although i do agree that london is mostly a [-Censored-]-hole.

Is this not the point of the thread title?

Are you always so personally rude in your responses?

I could of course have just forwarded the email to the new owner, but I didn't want to infringe Lucy's personal data. Wink

i rounded up from 85.277884%

and only 25% of the posts in this thread could be claimed to be "rude".
just remember though, just because YOU find something rude or offensive doesn't make you CORRECT Smiley
and that's the royal "YOU". Smiley

Poor Lucy I wonder if the place where she works is just as observant. Be a gent and go help her out. Not Cheesy
