Bag men !

Being an unscrupulous, tight arsed *******, I have managed over the years to acquire what is obviously a house that is worth quite a few quid. Some of my mates who blow their wedge on wine,women, song and alimony are not so lucky and they NEVER have this problem. However, it is me that gets a scally call on him every few weeks and who are always bent under a holdall the size of a wardrobe, from which he will decant work gloves, tea towels, dish clothes and ****ty calendars ! In the Summer time at least I can see the buggers turn into my drive, and in the 15 minutes it takes 'em to walk the length of it I can generally close all the windows and doors and make the house look empty, but in the bloody Winter I get no advance warning until the security lights kick in or the Rottweillers go ape****. Is it only me, or does anyone else think that a double barrelled shotgun and a bagfull of cartridges is the best solution for getting rid of 'em !
The scallies, I mean, not the Rottweillers !

Steve, if you don't want me to come round, all you had to do was ask!

Re: Bag men !



My mum gets 'Hawkers' calling at her little two bedroomed bungalow so it's not just you 'Lord Of The Manor' types

Cue Snoots to prove me wrong !!

You need to live at the end of a 'lane to no-where' like we do Steve... they can't be ar$ed to come down there !!

Re: Bag men !

Steve, have you thought about moving into a caravan instead? We know a gentleman who goes by the name of 'Mikey' who may be able to sort you out.

Re: Bag men !

Steve, with a drive that long you could surely get some landmines off some arms-dealer mates of yours and make life 'uncomfortable' for them? Or maybe that's where you made your wad anyway and have a load lying around in your shed?

Re: Bag men !

The lads is' all right, poor little git's. It's their 'minders' you need to go for, every so often picking up the 'tote' from these chilled waifs and strays. Seen it on many occasions, Dickensian Britain, 2007 style. Give 'em a tanner, Mister.

Re: Bag men !

I love living where I live, sat nav says there are roads you can go along to get to my house but oh no you can't *evil grin*

Steve, would a private property sign maybe be a detergent?

Never troubled by them now. Just open a top bedroom window, mutual trained belly voice of, 'Naff Off, don't buy at the door!' They Gone.

One came round my place this summer, and sold me the very best alloy cleaning brush I've ever come across.

Re: Bag men !

One once came to a shop I worked in and tried to sell me a torch with a built in radio

Re: Bag men !

Better than some of the gypsy stuff, quality wise. Not much risk of being cursed with a spell or two either.: Never get them around here now though, just a distant memory.:

The Midlands seems to be currently suffering a plague of oriental looking men (usually riding bikes!)selling porn dvds Not just local either seems to be widespread.

Re: Bag men !

And why not indeed! Keeping busy is the ticket, at my time of life Although I do have that bus pass, so guess tickets are irrelevant, I suppose.

Re: Bag men !

Before you turn away these budding entrepreneurs, remember the sage advice given to me by the proprietor of a hardware shop.

"Always give your wife the best brush you can afford".

Wise words indeed.

Re: Bag men !
