SO a beautiful hot day in London Town ended in tears! and shouting and swearing and use of the words disgusting and unlawful way too may times.
Sit with me and let me explain!
The day was hot as everone here knows
I've got a week off so i was relaxing doing the little bits and bobs like writing my APPEAL to a parking ticket i got on friday for one wheel being on the bloody pavement!
I HATE LAMBETH COUNCIL!!
Then when going to the post box I discovered there is a new black hair dressers under a minutes walk from my house-NOW I've had the same hair dresser since I was 13 so in my head i joked i would only go there if they could do my hair for like a fiver.
Out of interest i took a further look at the "specil" offers listed on the window
the spelling mistake did put me off
but the £6 for wash set blowdry got my eyes popping out my head
Still its in dagenham so i went home to think more about it
Then i thought F'it-i can pay with my £10 and still have money for lunch!
came home-got a call from kesi-we're out tonight-The LOOK OUT-Favela Chic
To see Blu & Ta'Raach - C.R.A.C. European May Tour
Yewande made it down-it was a night for the girls
Event was cool - vibe was hot
After the penalty notice I was very cautious where i parked my baby
so made it a single yellow and no wheels on pavement
Came back to my car
it was gone-immediately i checked my bag thinking someone musta have followed me pick-pocketed me and stole my car
called my mum simply to say "MY CARS GONE" before hanging up to investigate further
went to a near by restaurant which was closing to look for any witnesses
when they told me not only had my car been stolen- BUT
IT HAD BEEN STOLEN BY HACKNEY COUNCIL
they said it happened all the time as there was not enough signs
they even had a telephone number and map and address of where they ere holding my car
LETS STATE THE FACTS
I LIVE IN ESSEX
I AM STRANDED IN LONDON
MISSED THE LAST TRAIN
MY CAR IS IN A CAR POUND IN POPLAR
I AM ON THE STREET IN OLD STREET
I CANNOT GET MY CAR WITHOUT MY LOG BOOK -INSURANCE- DRIVING LICENSE AND £260
WHY WOULD I BE CARRYING ALL OF THAT ON ME
OBVIOUSLY ITS MY CAR IF I HAVE THE KEYS AND MY DRIVING LICENSE AND IM BLOODY LOOKING FOR IT
AND YET THEY COULD TAKE MY CAR WITHOUT HAVING EVEN MY KEYS
ITS SO UNLAWFUL
THEY STOLE MY CAR AND IM HAVING TO PAY THEM TO GET IT BACK!!!
THEY TELL ME TO COME TOMORROW-BUT THE PRICE WOULDDA GONE UP-SO ITS GONNA BE TONIGHT
Mum collects papers from room and drives down from Essex
In this time i take photos of every inch of the road to prove no signs
Then make my way to brick lane where i share my tragedy with the staff of the best bagel shop on earth
Lots of encouragement an nice words and ribena had me feeling fine
Mum turns up
Off to poplar
The guy tells me i have £200 to get my car back and a £60 parking ticket to pay
-HOLD UP WAIT A MINUTE
"How long between giving me the ticket and taking the car"
"well there's an observation period"
"how longs that"
"you can't actually not think what you just said isn't completely ridiculous?"
"Its all a part of the cycle of life and you will get it back to you-your money is helping they people of your council-and in turn God will provide for you"
"Not my council-i dont live in bloody hackney"
"Well your helping all those mothers on child benefit"
"Thats their problem - i didnt tell them to have no child and so i don't car eabout supporting them-AND THIS AINT MY BOROUGH!!"
"260 pounds is a lots of money!"
this is when decided to block him out
grabbed my car and drove home
home for 2am!
im too tired now-will finish in the morning
