Beautiful sunny May-Day Bank Holiday in Sheffield, plus snooker on TV from the Crucible. The only thing spoiling it was the sight of the binmen toiling away with their Veolia truck.
I know there’s an increasing and stupid trend to put profits before people and I also realise emergency services have to work holidays, but binmen, really?
Does it matter if my refuse collection is delayed by a day or so a few times a year, will the world stop turning?
No, and personally I’d much rather binmen were enjoying a bank holiday with their friends and families instead.
Also I wish that Veolia respected our Bank Holidays and didn’t send their wagons roaring down our streets as if it’s just another typical un-special Monday.
Bank Holidays are precious; they should not be stolen from us.
