Recent developments in the nasty neighbour story have left me seething with anger!
After my last post about this (https://abitmissing.wordpress.com/2013/07/31/everybody-needs-good-neighbours/) we (myself and the other parents) decided to let the organisation who provide the support to G and his housemates deal with them… and they have been… as well as talking to the council, Environmental Health and the Police (who were/are all onside and behaving admirably…with the exception of the ignorant Councillor initially… who has now taken a back seat and will soon retire!…”Dinosaur”!).
I really felt for the CEO who clearly has better ways to be spending her time (as if running the charity in difficult times wasn’t difficult enough!) and the staff team who were/are having to deal with this harassment on a daily basis…and who have gone out of their way to make sure they don’t piss off the neighbours re parking and have done everything possible to ensure nothing changes for the people they are supporting [bless em!]
All went a bit quiet for a while and we thought that was the end of this sad and sorry tail…but, today I learned that the neighbours, who having both put their houses up for sale (at inflated prices by the way!) are sending out a petition to other neighbours!
Hateful, hateful people!…wish I could see what this petition says…or maybe I don’t! [Sobs!]
The reasonable me wants to appeal to these people’s better nature…invite them to tea to meet the people they are spreading this hatred about…get to know them and see them as the good neighbours (and lovely people) they actually are (as well as being vulnerable young people who deserve their understanding)…I want to write them a letter telling them what an impact their actions are having on me as a mother (this is my baby they are being horrible about!) …Their actions are telling me they don’t have a better nature and would never understand!
The other side of me (the pissed off, upset, hurt and angry me) wants to scream from the rooftops, go to the press and “out” these hideous, ignorant, bigoted bastards and see them charged with inciting disability hate crime!
At this moment… the other side of me is winning!
