Pickwick Capers

Regular Ramsgate reader Steve writes:

Happy Mother's Day - NOT!

I go to bed early last night having prepared breakfast, put teabags in the pot for the morning, written card from my infant son - it was all ready for the big day today.

Imagine my, and my wife's, disappointment when we were awoken about 0230 this morning by the sound of a nearby car horn - which went on and on and on.......

After about 5 minutes of this, shouting and screaming could also be heard. Police were called, clothes donned and a walk to the end of the road to see what all the commotion was about.

What is it about carpet fitters and Thanet? One seems intent on ruining it right from the top, whilst the others seem to scrape around the bottom pissing everyone off in between. Pickwicks Carpets from Park Lane Ramsgate had picked up his very drunk girlfriend, had an argument whilst driving home, and decided to park up on the way and have a row which woke a whole neighbourhood up. She locked herself in the van, honked the horn for 15 minutes while her idiot carpet-fitter other half screamed abuse from the outside.

So, if you were woken up by this pr*ck this morning, please do what I am going to do - ring them tomorrow morning and ask them for a quote for fitting some shagpile. When asked how much you need, tell them you want enough to stuff in your ears so you can't hear their idiotic employees arguing at the end of your road at 2.30 in the morning.


Hmmm. Sounds like he was giving her a right carpeting Steve. Still, it's better than being woken up by a noisy shag! Or seagull. Er, no. I don't know what I'm talking about now either.

Acknowledging that much Thanet anti-social behaviour is rug fuelled the police are seeking mat erial witnesses.

The incident is bound to raise renewal of the call for legalization of rugs.

One renowned local retailer said that he has dealt in legalized rugs for years but is always careful about how his cut is taken.

Local entrepreneur Cyril said that he now offers rug dealer licences on his stall.

Was he called Matt by any chance?

His gf had clearly had night on the tiles.

Or she may just have been frustrated at being underlaid.

He should have taken a different tack with her.

Second time this week, police have had to come to Elms Avenue to sort out a domestic. Can't wait until we get the young offenders home.

I'm regularly woken up by people who don't seem to have any concept that others are trying to sleep. It always amazes me how many people are roaming the streets in the early hours shouting off their big mouths with no consideration for others. Presumably, they don't care because they are free to sleep during daylight hours. In my opinion they ought to insist on making these layabouts sign on every day at 07:30 as if they had a real job.

I agree with 5:33. Everyone in Thanet (well Tony Flaig & a few of his mates) go on about Eastern Europeans, but they are generally far more decent people. A few weeks back there were a couple of local women drunk in the middle of the street (in daytime) calling each other f***ing c***s, & a nearby Polish(?) family asked them politely to stop as they were making their toddler cry - they were promptly told to "f**k off home!" I felt ashamed to be British.

consideration for your fellow citizens. Its not difficult.

I entirely agree with Peter - manners in our eastern euro friends aplenty, some of the born and (in)bred leave a lot to be desired

"I felt ashamed to be British."

I, too, am ashamed that you are British. Anyone who wanders around flashing their scrotum is a pervert. Anyone who puts it on the internet should be castrated.

I'm not totally British, as I'm of Spanish-Jewish descent, my boy! : )

My sympathy to Steve, this Pickwick pair are renowned for this type of behaviour, and it's the female giving the bloke all the stick.
He's been known to leave the house and kip in the van because the domestic violence has proved too much.
Bit painfull sleeping on that spikey gripper strips !
