I had the cops rock up last night. One of my neighbours complained to them because he could not get to his house for a few mins, then when there was a clear path floored it through. Anyway, the discussion with the officer went as such: Cop: Who owns that house? (pointing to the house across the road from mine) Me: I think the guy's name is Ian Cop: Well what's all this then? (pointing to my house, still not knowing who's house it is) Me: It's christmas lights Cop: What for? Me: Ummm, Christmas, you know, people decorate their houses in lights... Cop: So Who are all these people then? Me: Umm, people that have come to see the lights. Cop: Well they can't be here it's blocking the road Me: You're welcome to tell them to move on (The lineup was about 30 cars long lol) (He told one car to move) Cop: So who's house is it? Me: That is my house Cop: So how do to they know to come here? Me: Word of mouth mostly but the power of the internet is amazing these days Cop: Well you have to take it off the internet and tell everyone on the internet they can not block the road Me: Yeah, ok, i'll do that (in a sincere tone) Cop: Well, if you don't I'll have to order you to shut down the lights. Me: Well there is not too much I can do for tonight but I will tomorrow. cop: Ok, I'll be back to check tomorrow! He truly was a weird one. There was more to the conversation than that but it's a fairly accurate description of that part of the conversation. I was polite etc but all that cos one neighbour complained, the only one I have not spoken to (ever, his house is a dive and is not very visotor friendly - you can't get to the front door). Funny thing is, his car is all decorated with Tinsel etc. He's spreading the christmas love, just don't block his road! I get it, it's frustrating for him I spose but have some patience! My street has an awkward kink in it and it's not overly wide, this makes it hard to 'go around' the traffic. I just hate that: a) He never bothered to say anything to me about it b) His first and only resort was to call the cops. c) it's now irrelevant because he is home d) It's christmas and only for a couple of days, get over it!
