Unbelievable I know but below are a collection of extracts taken from letters received by various council departments.

  • It's the dogs mess that I find hard to swallow.
  • 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 day that blew them off.
  • My lavatory seat is cracked, where do I stand?
  • 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
  • Our lavatory seat is broken in half and now is in three pieces.
  • 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.
  • This is to let you know that our lavatory seat is broke and we can't get BBC2.
  • I want some repairs done to my cooker as it has backfired and burnt my knob** off.
(Commonly used slang for * the testicles and ** the penis.)

I like the poo one best. It appeals the most to my humorous side.

Too funny! Now I can't help wondering how and why so many people are breaking their lavatory seats???

What is with the lavatories there? They seem to keep breaking!

That's some hilarious stuff right there. Definitely put a smile on my face today. :)

Kelly said...

These are hilarious! I literally burst out laughing on a couple of them. (which always makes my dogs look at me like I'm crazy)

Suko said...

Petty, I was going to say, "these are hilarious", but someone else already has. Thanks for making me laugh. You always find the funniest items to post. :)

That was interesting.
We had a priest,our bursar who always used to give us advices.From the fourth floor of the college,some students would spit on to the ground below.So he advised us," My dear boys,don't do that.'Understanding people' will suffer"
What he meant was those who were standing on the ground!
