So, I had a rant about my frigging neighbours and their bad attitude to blocked drains in my post, Bloody Neighbours. Yesterday the waterboard came out and confirmed that our drains do not connect to the neighbours in any way whatsoever. He traced her drains and they go around the outside perimeter of my property. The actual blockage was in the street due to a u-bend that had clogged with fat. There is a takeaway that is connected to that set of drains and they think it is from there that the blockage has been caused.
After the guys inspected the chambers and confirmed where the blockage was it took them all of 2 minutes to jet the u-bend and remove the blockage, and in turn, everything vanished from all drains. The went to P’s house and informed her where her drains went, that they had nothing to do with mine and were not connected and the blockage was in the street and she was wrong to presume it was ours or our fault. Needless to say, she has never come to our door to apologise for her shitty attitude and attempted intrusion via a shitty plumber who could not have done a thing about it.
Last time she had problems I told her that it had nothing to do with us and that her drains do not come through ours, but again being a stubborn old woman who has nothing better to do with her life, tries to cause trouble because she cannot have her own way.
We have lived here for close to 20 years and have always been really nice to our neighbours, helpful, and above all respectful. P has lived here for about 8 years and E 4 years, again I have been nothing but nice, but no more. Why should I if either do not have the decency to act like human beings. Respect works both ways and being shitty doesn’t win awards with me. When I went to P’s door she and her son decided not to answer the door and ignore my knocking. They then closed the blinds and 10 minutes later the son’s car drove off their drive with them in it. It really just goes to show the extent people will go to when they do not get their own way.
It is like living next to the coven of witches from Macbeth at times.
