A rare sight
Started by: nyce horse (3440) Report abuse
We had the RoadSweeper round our street yesterday, on it's annual visit.
Anybody would think there's an election due...................................................
OH! hang on a minute.


I see she got her mug shot in the paper today, must think she's lied low for long enough.

And when did yoo last have your grid gullys sucked out

a bad sign that, It means there has been planning permission given for your area for some new building is about to be built, the contractor is sweeping it to promote a good image for the company,
Expect, big wagons,diggers,workers with loud radios, fences,roadwork signs,traffic jams and if its a success smiffy comes and lays a plaque, if its a failure, jimmy O does a video,

happy days ahead,

Yep, that's right, they are going to concrete over all of Shevy

I always wondered what those lyrics were on about in Don McLean's 'American Pie' song

"Tooky my Levy to the Shevy and the Shevy was dry"

Road sweeper I'd forgotten what they were.

This street gets swept everyday.

Streets were a damb sight cleaner when they worked on the street,

they were indeed bentlegs and the people were much more respectfull too with their litter, The yungs uns today just throw it on the floor with no regard and even chuck it out of car windows, Even up and down the motorways the grass verges are littered from north to south east to west,The rivers and canals are polluted, People have taken this
'throw away' society too literally,
