My neighbours are lazy fekers!

#1
Once the snow had stopped falling last night I cleared the footpath in front of my home and spread some salt to stop it freezing. Anyone who served in BAOR will know that's normal in Germany.

I'd hoped that the neighbours might take the hint and follow my example, good thing I'm not holding my breath. You might be tempted to call them a load of c..ts, but remember a c..t is useful (for two things if you include peeing)!

Is anyone clearing the pavements where you live?

Are people not scared off by "If you touch the councils snow/ice, some twat can sue you".

I did mine and helped to clear a couple of drives for elderly neighbours.

I wish all the ******* at the top of the street would muck in, then we could clear the road as well, instead of a 2" thick sheet of ice for the next month or more.

The old fella that used to live across the street (sadly passed away a few months ago) used to clear not only his immediate neighbours driveways, but those of around 8-9 other houses nearby, mine included, and the footpath up to the pasture for the doggie walkers. I told him he really didn't need to worry about clearing my path/driveway, but he insisted; said it gave him "something to do, and I enjoy the fresh air". It's just not the same without him!

That was revealed as a load of rubbish years ago, hasn't stopped lazy people using it as an excuse not to clear their snow mind you.

For the record, you'd only risk being sued if you cleared the snow with such utter stupidity as to create a greater hazard (eg, melting it with hot water than then sets into black ice).

That suing crap is an urban myth. If you've acted sensibly there's no problem.

Should some twat melt the snow with a kettle of water leaving a skating rink behind they need to be kicked in the teeth! :thumright:

Apart from me, guess how many others clear the path outside their gaff on my road. None of the idle cnuts, that's how many.

The cnuts.

When I was a youngster in the North it was normal for people to clear the snow outside their houses, and that of those to old or ill. I am old enough to remember the snow of 1963. The streets were not lined with parked cars in those days. They are now, that is the main reason people don`t want the gutters piled high with cleared snow.

Thanks for the suggestion, don't worry I won't mention you if I get caught.

Stuck on camp this weekend, but last time we had ice I was straight in there with some salt on the communal path to our apartments - mainly so I wouldn't break my neck when I came home slightly worse for drink that night...

when the milf next door asks to borrow your gas blow torch to de-ice her dishwasher outlet pipe,advise her a kettle of hot water would be a better bet.
Being a proper gentleman,I went and did the job for her.

My neighbours steadfastly refuse to clear the snow, so it's up to me to lead by example.

Mind we only get real snow about once every decade. Are you lot up to your oxters in freezing cold white stuff then?
We got some sun at lunchtime.

That's what the gardeners are for at this time of year. Otherwise they will just sit around in the greenhouses getting bored.

You haven't seen my next door neighbour, she makes Olga the crane driver from Omsk look attractive!

I read in the papers that you ought to look out for your neighbour's in this bad weather, well, there's a 92 year old woman who lives alone next door and not once as the lazy cow been round to make sure i'm alright.

She's not even cleared my path, she's that idle she hasn't taken her milk in for a week and there's papers sticking out of her letterbox, community spirit ! pfft

Pah!! The UK gets 2mm and grinds to a halt - out here in Canada land we get proper dumped on with the white stuff with regularity from mid November until late March. It's also a requirement to clear outside one's abode. Folks here pretty much all abide by it and by most early evenings the paths are all clear.
