man logic

I think we need 2 cars , in case no 1 car breaks of which I am a named driver

I think we need 2 cars so I can have my own insurance and drive other cars incase no 1 car breaks

I think we need 2 cars so the wife wont go ape shit  when no 1 car breaks and I cant drive any other car ..

 

No 1 car clutch release bearing has just started sqealing ...

We are talking about the 2 of you only having one car. 

It's not going to work.

Looks a cracking route that. Not sure my lot would make it out of Amsterdam though so probably for the best we’re heading the other way in three weeks. Need to get fixing my bm like today!

drains been backed up for a month council cleared the leaking out the side through the grass clearly fucked one though sadly didn’t check the rest. Last weekend was spent sorting same stinking shit as stack had blocked up too so no drainage in kitchen.  Council rodded stack though rod went through old copper waste in my flat so had to redo that ripping out boxing and generally fucking up my flat more so, laminate fucked I’m hallway etc. This weekend’s been sorting the stinky shit coming up the storm drain and flooding my garage with sewage water throwing a load of crap away from the garage and making no progress on my bike. Not really a grin thread thing though my mates been around and laughed at me lots which is infectious. Is sure better than crying. Me armpit deep saying I hate my life mate pissing himself laughing all shits and giggles.

Last pic water height is about 6 ft higher than storm drain by garage. Have plugged storm drain with a bag and sand and made a dam to avoid more garage trauma. Waiting on council emergency response to fix. Fingers crossed no more shitty water and fanny rags in my lock up. 
I need a wash though suns still out so shall enjoy it.

Some words of advise. Please wash yourself and clothing well. Working in shit is  dangerous and there are a number of diseases which can be caught from working in these environments without protective gear. Also going into an enclosed space without gas monitors and rescue gear with second man at ground level is also not a great idea.

I do not know where you are based. In England (maybe Wales too) the Water Companies were obliged to take over the maintenance of a lot of sewers which were in private ownership. I would check with the water company to see what the status of this sewer network is.

I can see a sanatory pad floating there, maybe a condom. I bet there are a number of ponies too.

@Rustybullethole sorry to hear about the problems with your drains, hope you manage to get them sorted soon.  I can only echo what @Remspoor said in his post above. Confined spaces like that are dangerous, 80% of fatalities in such environments are due to toxic gases, fumes and vapours or lack of oxygen - you won't be aware anything's wrong with out proper detection instruments - losing consciousness and drowning in sewage is a god awful way to go.

If you feel ill in the next few days, especially flu like symptoms - shivers, aches, fever - do get yourself medically checked out as you could have contracted weil's disease.

All this no doubt seems rather alarmist but my thinking is probably coloured by the fact part of my job is rescuing people from confined spaces when things go wrong.

Thanks for the words of advise chaps all duly noted. Luckily the council came on a emergency call out last night and knew which drain was blocked as they “couldn’t clear it last time” sadly they didn’t have the gear to fix it with them despite prior knowledge as to the problem though said they’d be back today to sort it and leave me some disinfectant to clean my garage up, how kind. Came to find they hadn’t been and had to clean out sewage from garage again. Am on the emergency list again and they’ll be here with the gear to fix it in two hours. Three hours ago. I’m a self employed builder. I would have no work if I was this shit. 
For the record I took one look down that man hole and thought fuck that, it’s in raised ground so gonna be deep. It was the storm drain by the garage I was armpit deep in though fisting my manhole just sounds more classy I felt. Washed up well serval times, shall keep tabs on how I feel. Just joined Twitter think I might contact the council through there instead and link in environmental health and local newspapers. 
on the plus side I’ve found my missing axle stand and binned enough stuff from the garage I can walk in it now.

I am sorry I sounded like I was lecturing you. In a previous life I was a water engineer. Worked on clean and dirty water. It was drilled into me the dangers of entering a manhole without testing for gases.  That is any access be it for sewage or even something seemingly harmless like a post office pit. Gasses can can build up-

The council not coming out is always been an issue . I expect they will now say delays are even longer due to Covid. I would also suggest you find the local councillor . Sometimes they can be active and work for the public interest. 

Keep us up date. I do hope you manage to get some help.

If not rodding kits are available at all good DIY stores/on line.😧
