Don’t know where my nearest grit bin is now tbh

I saw three on the short but treacherous route to collect my daughter from school leading me to wonder if I had simply never spotted them before or the council had done a quick dump of them in the most affluent back streets to keep the Blairites on-side.

I mean they were full of fresh looking grit rather than rubbish as is standard when I see them in warm times, plus there were none in the first stretch that went past our council estate and other parts of the estate.

I used mine last night. Fucking did the road too, cause I am a boss neighbour

I thought that environmentally they were not the best once they get into the drains so I’m a bit torn on them.

saw two Manchester City Council trucks yesterday called “Gritter Thunberg” and “Snow Begone Kenobi” yesterday

Oh man, don’t have Twitter but can somebody please post that (was it Canadian?) news story with the kid who kindly spent the day clearing snow for all his neighbours and was very pissed off about it all. Like, old man pissed off.

I am not your twitterbitch.

(No idea what you’re talking about, sorry.)

Think this is my local. Sample of the goods on display, as well.
