Bad wind…

Yesterday was my parents’ 56th wedding anniversary 🙂 …So, in order to keep celebrating all the years they have spent together (and yes, they are the sort who still walk around hand in hand and say goofy things to each other… 🙂 ), I thought I would post something amusing today. This list was sent to me by a UK blogging friend (thanks!):

Extracts from complaints written by council tenants to their Housing Departments.

  • My bush is really overgrown round the front, and my back passage has fungus growing in it.
  • He’s got this huge tool that vibrates the whole house, and I just can’t take it anymore.
  • It is the dog’s mess that I find hard to swallow.
  • I want some repairs done to my cooker as it has backfired and burnt my knob off.
  • I wish to complain that my father hurt his ankle very badly when he put his foot in the hole in his back passage.
  • And their 18-year-old son is continually banging his balls against my fence.
  • I wish to report that tiles are missing from the outside toilet roof. I think it was bad wind the other night that blew them off.
  • My lavatory seat is cracked; where do I stand?
  • I am writing on behalf of my sink, which is coming away from the wall.
  • Will you please send someone to mend the garden path? My wife tripped and fell on it yesterday and now she is pregnant.
  • I request permission to remove my drawers in the kitchen.
  • 50% of the walls are damp, 50% have crumbling plaster, and 50% are plain filthy.
  • I am still having problems with smoke in my new drawers.
  • The toilet is blocked and we cannot bath the children until it is cleared.
  • Will you please send a man to look at my water? It is a funny colour & not fit to drink.
  • I want to complain about the farmer across the road. Every morning at 6 am his cock wakes me up, and its now getting too much for me.
  • The man next door has a large erection in the back garden, which is unsightly and dangerous.
  • Our kitchen floor is damp. We have two children and would like a third, so please send someone round to do something about it.
  • I am a single woman living in a downstairs flat and would you please do something about the noise made by the man on top of me every night.
  • Please send a man with the right tool to finish the job and satisfy my wife.


  1. I nearly choked on my breakfast protein drink, but it was well worth it to laugh this hard this early in the day!! Thanks!!

  2. Shame on you all for finding these poor peoples’ complaints amusing!

    And yes I am able to type that with a straight face – basically because it needs a rest from the laughing! No matter how many times I read it – it’s still funny!

  3. Hello,
    Wiahing ur parents a very happy anniversary. Your blog is very useful indeed specially for curcumin, and I hope that it will help me too. I am diagnosed with sarcoidosis, a chronic inflammatory disorder, as it has no cure so I am thinking about taking curcumin as anti inflammatory. I know that these questions may have been asked before but I am very new to this and don’t understand a thing and have a very confused personality by nature 🙂 so your help is really appreciated. My concern is taking curcumin on empty stomach, why is it necessary? I tried it but could not tolerate it,could you kindly give me some advice in this regard? Secondly, do I have to take capsules of curcumin and capsules of flax seed oil at the same time?
    What about side effects, I am very worried as I have heard it can cause stomach ulceration and can affect liver too.
