Ban Trevor as that sounds like you ran into a band of Romanian Gypsies working in the trenches.

No such joy, gypsies in my experience (a) don't have a 'boss' or even family member who would say such things about their own folk and (b) though they may have a reputation for stealing they don't tend to do damage regardlessly.

In any event, after some argument, I managed to get a province official who made it so that they had to replace a large load of ground (mine!) back by my hedge roots they'd uncovered, by hand, and to re-locate an official boundary stake they'd pulled out and thrown aside. That had them on all fours rummaging through all the dirt, including dogshit(!), searching for the stake and replacing *exactly* where it should be (I had a photograph of all the layout).
If they could play dirty, petty and with no respect, then so can I.

I'm not in any way 'petty' by nature, I'm fairly easy when it comes to things that might affect me but need to be done, I'll even help the folk involved. However it's come to the point that I'll now argue even over a centimetre in error, e.g. another lot from that company wanted to lift paving tiles just at the edge of my entrance drive so as to detect a possible old cable, it would take them just 10 minutes to do and 10 minutes to replace them back - I refused to accept that they'd have to stand or crouch on my property to do so (yep, all 50 cms or so inside the line!) until they got an official permission from the province that was agreed and signed by me.

This took them 4 days to organise and thereby cost them a week of delay in completing their work, plus of course while they were waiting for the permission document they had to replace the paving tiles they'd already lifted in the pavement (sidewalk) 100m northwards and 100m southwards for safety reasons - but it was at no cost to me!

Isn't it nice when people are friendly and cooperate together?

Ban rachy for distractively bobbing up and combining all the discombobulation with potent home-made potentially intoxicating brew.

Ban Rachy for encouraging the use of brews which can lead again to discombobulation

Ban Trevor as discombobulation has been known to happen with or without the presence of intoxicating brews or smoke.

Ban Steve for his want of one-sound words in bans. There are shrinks who can help with speech.

Ban Trevor for his love of organisations who can help almost everything for a fee.

Ban Roger as if we are to consider Trevor's wallets comfort, were he to give away its contents it would be slimmer and therefore more comfortable to sit upon. I am more than happy to help him in that regard.;)

Ban Ryan for queueing for a handout from my wallet since said handout would make my wallet harder to sit upon. My wallet's comfort is the comfort I gain by having it cushion me in my back pocket.

Ban Trevor for using the contents of his wallet to fill the hole that it has already made in the computer chair. I'll trade you some foam rubber padding for those folded £100 notes.

Ban Roger as I don't think there are £100 notes anymore so you might be out of luck.

Ban Roger for assuming I have folded £100 notes in my wallet; since I don't live in that country any more I only have Euro notes in my wallet and not many of them are 100's. Actually there's more 50's in circulation than 100's, 200's or 500's - and they're no longer issuing or even re-issuing the 500's - crime usage!

Ban Ryan for not offering to take my quite large number of £20 and £50 notes off my hands at a good exchange rate
