    The issue remains about people using our car park spaces. We discovered that a politely worded letter, left underneath the wiper blade had no effect and we had repeat offenders. We do not want to hire a car park management company and that will create more issues than it fixes. We could block cars in and we have pool cars available to do this. This could seriously inconvenience people, but we have no desire to go this far.
    Stickering has been extremely effective. Unless someone has a better suggestion of course
    When I was in college, the chemistry dept. devised a "goo" that was used to affix notes to the drivers window of badly parked vehicles; so not a new idea.

    I got a note one evening about clattering the speed bumps in the works van in Kelsterton car park; work would be contacted about me abusing company property type of thing from the campus dogsbody.
    I left nine pm that night after college and drove around the car park looking for the prick, so I could point out I owned the stuffing company.

    The complainant would also have to prove who put the stickers on the windscreen.

    Name the company, they would then have to prove otherwise.

    I'm currently house- and catsitting up in Scotland. I volunteer for this annually because it means I can shut myself away from all humanity for 10 days. However, my friends felt their quota of three cats, one of them very geriatric, was a little too precarious for comfort, so a few months ago they took steps to adopt a couple of rescue kittens. They still haven't adequately explained how they came home with all four!

    Thankfully I seem to have arrived at the exact changeover point between the kittens making industrial-level contributions to the litter tray, and them venturing out to make their deposits in the vast areas of mulch at the bottom of the garden. There's only one regular offender still hopping into the tray, but as I've initiated its steady journey down the corridor from my friends' ensuite towards the utility room and back door, she'll run out of this cosy option by the end of the week.

    We've had two vomits and a bird, but otherwise things are going remarkably smoothly. The geriatric comes and claws my leg for treats at regular intervals (for a rescue cat nearer 20 years old than 15 he's a voracious eater) but that's par for the course. The only dilemma is whether to allow him some of my sliced ham or whether to venture out and buy him more chicken - he's eaten practically everything else!

    You make looking after cats seem so easy. I wonder why "professionals" make such a fuss.
    By the way, the salt content of ham may not be too good for his ancient kidneys.

    The police would have to investigate. Victims of crime aren't required to prove anything.

    It's posh ham, so he doesn't end up with that big a share. It's that or the prawns, and with those he'd be getting even less!

    The police don't even investigate burglaries, can't see them getting too excited about a piece of paper.
