Grrrr. Almost three weeks now since I submitted my online complaint to the local council about the hideous temporary fencing all along the cliff top promenade opposite Wellington Crescent.
Since when, nothing. Zip. Nada. Not a sausage.
So today I've sent it again.
"Thank you for submitting your complaint or comment. You will receive a response within five working days from the Public Affairs unit," it chirpily responds after I press 'submit'.
Five working days, eh? Of course, silly me, it was in all the papers. I clean forgot that Thanet Council's Public Affairs Unit relocated to Uranus several months ago, and that each day there lasts the equivalent of 72 Earth days.
It's a simple mistake, really. Could have happened to anyone. I don't know what I was thinking of. Really I don't. Only another 359 working Earth days to go, then. Hey ho. Mustn't grumble.
