The flat where I live overlooks a busy part of the town and as I work from home, by the window, I often see the scummier parts of society engaging in activities they shouldn't when they think nobody is looking. I am, you could say, a "curtain twitcher" (does that have sexual connotations? ). So far this week, I've called the police twice. Once for a load of pricks who'd thrown a shopping trolley into the road (a fast moving road with a blind corner) and once, just now in fact, for a pair of queers who are using the road as a racing track. I don't mind if they crash and kill themselves... But there are other people about, and besides; the sound of them revving their 1 litre engines makes me sick. On both occasions, I heard police cars shortly afterwards, so it seems the police around here still do take calls quite seriously. My proudest moment came during the floods when two smackhead chav homeless types from the town were breaking into a building opposite my flat. Because the road was closed, they thought nobody would see them. Little did they know that by the time the first one had entered the window, I had already called 999 and a few seconds later, no less than 15 coppers - Who were massed around the corner 'policing' the floods - Came screaming over in a riot van and two police cars and proceeded to arrest the scummy chavs. At this point, one of them came out with a one-liner which will stay with me forever. From the upstairs window he had broken into, and half way through lowering a stolen ladder down to his mate, he shouted "I wasn't nicking it, I was just borrowing it!" I have pictures, but I fear if I give away my location, I will get a brick through the window. Are there any other "justice voyeurs" out there?
