|My Choko and Pumpkin crop vandalised|
Because I was constantly being interrupted I decide to post a very polite, but firm notice on my door to let unexpected visitors know that I may not be answering the door during this time and why, thanking them for their consideration. Most had my email address and phone number and were free to contact me at any time. One person saw this "please do not disturb" sign as being for everyone else and her interruptions escalated.....I stood my ground and continued with my tasks working well into the night. Others were depending on me to meet my deadlines so they could meet theirs.
After 3 days of pounding on my door and not contacting me via email or voice mail she gave up. But had she .....on the eve of Australia Day I looked out my window. Why I decided to look out that particular window I don't know. What I saw astounded me........ she had ripped all the choko vines off my fence and cut the stems of my pumpkins leaving half ripened fruit to die. I might add that she had been harvesting the chokos from this vine for over three years...it was originally planted to allow her ongoing access to fresh chokos for her family and friends.
|One lone pumpkin vine was looped over the paling to support|
the young pumpkins that had decided to grow there.
Instead of lowering the pumpkins gently down, the vine was
deliberately cut where it was looped and the unripe pumpkins left to die
Her behaviour is not the Australian Way. SHAME
