Hey Anita - I am puzzled by how inconsistent you are (and you are really LOW KEY
compared to the others). You seem to be all voice but no action even where you
clearly have leverage. When you had ascertained that the woman had no permit
for use of the space why did you not, without further ado, go to a telephone and
call the police to ticket her? That is appropriate action. And would have
perhaps reduced somewhat the anger which I find emanating from these posts.
Very often posts such as this series seem to betray a need to hold on to the
anger and resentment so prominently expressed. GeoB.
