Well that's me told, think I'll sell the car and move to hut in the middle of Siberia!!!
Causing unnecessary inconvience and annoyance to others is 'anti-social'. You may have thought it as a triffling matter but you decided to park your car on the pavement (apparently with no thought as to whether the pavement was designed to take the weight of a car). You then jacked the car and left all sorts of stuff round it whilst you cleaned/worked on it. You've mentioned Health & Safety - do you honestly think there is nothing wrong with your acts?
You're definition of anti-social is a bit to vague for my liking. Seems to cover roadworks, traffic lights, pedestrians on a busy street, leaving out refuse for the bin men - all things we have to to live with but which no one cares about because it has to be done.
What's my car being jacked up got to do with it, the jack was operated well within it's operational limits and was tucked up underneath the car - I even put the rod under the car out of the way. All my cleaning equipment and the wheels I took off were at the front of the vehicle leaving a clear pathway down the side of the car. The buckets in the photo were moved to where they are because I was about the move the much troublesome 156.
Health and safety wise, why don't you tell me what's wrong as opposed to asking me to give you the answer. Using my comments out of context is a poor sportsmanship.
And yes....if you are allowed to wash your car like that then others will follow.
Good!! - people should look after their cars and they're property. I think the council should embrace the fact that some people actually take pride in their surroundings.
People with drives usually 'pay' for them by having to spend more on their properties. THe reason you should pay for taking your car to the garage to clean it (although you also say you are able to wash it at a friends house) is that you 1) risk damaging the pavement - which means the residents as a whole will have to pay for your thoughtfulness; 2) you are causing unnecessary inconvenience to other residents (a person with a push chair couldn't passed your car); 3) there was a risk of injury to other users of this public footpath.
You could also argue that spending all my money on carwashing machine means I can't afford a house with a driveway - you seem to think it's ok for the less well off to be punished financially.
As for the pavement being damaged, I don't know if you're an engineer of sorts but it would take a hell of a lot of traffic for it to become a danger. The pathway is that wide for the simple reason that vehicles do need access to this building.
Already answers points 2 & 3.
If you don't have a safe place to wash the car - which you earlier said you did - then you should take it to the garage - or if you have a parking bay - have washed it there.
Answered this multiple time already.
Well clearly there was. It may have been a trifling matter but you were still in the 'wrong' to do it.
Maybe so, but it didn't deserve the response I got.
Wrinx made some valid points, which were constructively put, and was quite polite in making them. You're quite correct that there's a question of degree - hence that's probably why the police merely pointed out that what you had done was wrong and not to do it again.
Wrinx really only had 1 point in that he said I was wrong. The policeman said and I quote "I don't see anything wrong with what you're doing here" but unfortunately he had to be seen to be doing his job and that's what's the rules state. It only seems to be a small group of extreme dudley do-rights who seem to have the problem...the vast majority of people don't care.
Exactly as it has done now.
Don't make me laugh.
Presumably so when you've done something wrong and somebody's complained about it - you can come on here and try and get sympathy as the 'victim' and not the 'perpetrator'. Hence the rather agressive re-action when someone actually suggests it was you in the wrong.
lol, aggressive re-action is what I got. I've posted quite composed answers to all your posts and statement only for it to be insinuated that I'm a selfish moron who takes pride in destroying property and winding up people needlessly. I think you should look at your own posts before preaching from your pedestal.
This thread has been blown way out of proportion, as I said previously I posted as a bit of a laugh. I didn't expect to be shot down in flames at every single opportunity.
