Arrogant "i know what's best" council dicks fuck me off too. Once had environmental health come to my door because a neighbout complained i had too many wasps in my garden and her kids might get stung!
There's no nest in my garden, and if there had been we have the gear to smoke em anyway, seeing as my stepdad is a exterminator on the side. what we did have was a bush that leaked sap, i told this to the guy but he insisted on taking a look.
he stepped in a fresh dogshit in my garden and on his way out i asked "so, was it worth it?". no reply
then i watched him scraping his shoe on the curb for 10mins before he'd get in his bmw!
So well done for screwing the bastard out of a new back drive. maybe i should of tried to get him to trim bach that bush a bit, was getting near that time again....
