The problem is, that somebody dumped it there along with a load of other shit, old carpets and crap. A tramp occasionally sleeps amongst the rubbish and nobody is taking any responsibility for the car. Not even the tramp.

I've parked underneath an apple tree for years without incident. This week it decided to fuck my shit up. All over the paint and very difficult and labour intensive to remove.

Junkmom sez, if you have a problem that's difficult to sort, don't bother sorting it.

With that advice, you too could end up poor & driving a crap car in Stockport.

Yesterday my neighbour brought a parcel over, delivered when I was out. It wasn't for me, my address but a name I have never heard of and no return address. Fortunately the plastic bag had a little rip in it which I made bigger and got the piece of paper out. There's lovely, (I am Welsh) it's an Apple iPhone. Not wanting to be caught up in someone else's scam I called 3 (The provider). Eventually after being put on hold (after they found I didn't want to sign up with them), then being cut off, then trying their live chat service I did speak to a nice chap who said that account was already under investigation and is arranging a return envelope. I just hope this is the end of it.

Edited to add, it's bloody hard work trying to do the decent thing these days

I would tend not to leave it at that.....Ball-ache I know but get hold of your local Citizen Advice helpline and start the ball rolling with regard to use of your address. Could be the beginning of a massive pain in the arse otherwise.
