    Background: I live in a huge Victorian house that has been converted into flats. There's a small car park out the front with trees lining the outside to act as sound insulation for the road outside.

    The doorbell went last night at about 9pm, and there was a man outside saying how he had just hit his head on a branch of a tree that is outside my home but hangs over the pavement.

    He was first asking what I was going to do about it.
    I don't know how well you get on with your landlord but it might be a good move to let him/her know. So many people are turning to these litigation shark lawyers these days, that they might appreciate the tipoff and sort out the trees!

    Yeah, this is a good idea, I've let him know, thanks.

    It's easily avoidable, it's quite high up (he was fairly tall) and only hangs about 1/3 to 1/2 of the way onto the pavement.
    In that case my original presumption that he must be an idiot is rightly founded.

    Aha, this reminds me of the time a drunk guy cut himself on the bushes that hang out into the alley behind our house. The first we knew of this was when we heard the CHAINSAW he'd gone home to get and then come back to cut off the branches. We figured 'free gardening' :rolleyes:

    Hope the guy comes back with an axe later today?

    Tell him to call the police, it's a serious matter.

    The woman accross the road from me keeps complaining that my mate parks his car on the pavement outside my house. She says there's not enough room to get her car in and out of the driveway :facepalm2:. THERE'S TWO CAR LENGTHS!!! between my mates car and her driveway. Anyway a few weeks ago she got into an argument with me and my mate about it and threatened to call the police. I just said fine call the police, because i knew we had done nothing wrong. Long story short she did call the police and she got a warning for wasting police time :rofl:. Silly bint!


    Just thought i'd share :dontknow:
    Awesome!

    I don't think so, he just put me in a really sticky situation.

    Sounds like he should made a tree and leave

    The difference is, I wasn't alone
    Say anymore and this will turn into a H&R thread. :yep:

    And the tree was clearly the root cause. :sad:

    That's true. It's a shame the tree problem has now branched out to me and my landlord

    It is the landlord's responsibility to make sure nothing on his property obstructs the highway.

    Sounds like the kind of person who has a bump in his car so he can claim compensayshuun.
