#3 things challenge #455

Di has given us these 3 things today to work with:


So My PA Frances rents her house from the local city council. Same as me. Her double socket in her sitting room is broken. It began to spark recently and then it fused, and the electricity in her house blew and so she rang the council to tell them and see if they’d come out to look at it.
That was six weeks ago. No sign of them coming out at all.
Every week for the past six weeks she’s rang their offices. I told her I think its totally ridiculous.
I mean, they are her landlords. You’d think when its an electrical fault they’d be out straight away. When she rings them they keep telling her that someones coming out either on the same day or the next day, and then, nobody shows up.
She told them last week that if anything happens, if her house goes up in flames, she’ll sue them.
Even her saying that didnt get them out to her.
But yet, when I called a few weeks ago and asked them to come out because I thought my trip switch blew in my hall way they were out to me in a flash on the same day. Just because I told them I was blind and had food in the fridge that would spoil if someone didnt come out to check on it.
I wonder why its one rule for me and a different rule for Frances? Just because I’m classed as vulnerable? Is that why?
Who knows!

  1. This “vulnerable” thing is nonsense. People have told me I’m vulnerable when it suits them to do so. Most of the time, they don’t give a monkey’s. Somebody living without electricity… the place is uninhabitable. You can see it, I can see it…

    1. Yes I know, it’s ridiculous. Especially with it being electricity I mean if anything was to happen her house did all be killed if the house went on fire or anything like that. Ridiculous really that they won’t come out her her 💖💖

  2. It is a crazy situation, and if the council is her landlord, there should be someone she can call directly. With this going on for so long, I’d be demanding to speak to a supervisor or manager, and threatening to take my story to the local press and my local MP. No-one likes bad publicity.
