Irresponsible dog owners ( includes swearing)

I treated dog and place for fleas yesterday, as maintenance, as always, WE WERE CLEAR OF FLEAS. THIS WAS MAINTENANCE

My Dog played with and said hello to a dog earlier when out, 

I HAVE Now found live ones AGAIN.

HOW THE FUCK can i rid of them (or prevent them) when others dont give a fucking shit. VERY ANNOYED.

We were clear of them for last couple of months. But if others DONT GIVE A SHIT then WTF do i do?

Would you take driving lessons from a drunk?

The title get your attention? Good. 

Its not about driving lessons from an incompetent and possibly illegal tutor
Its about being put through a system with glaring faults : DWP acknowledges serious issues with assessments and assessors. You can check that up, the info is widespread.
Heres the resl rub... 
So If ATOS so highly lambasted by DWP, BMA etc etc. Why do i still have to attend TO THEM before end aug? Surely efficacy is questionable?

Not only efficacy, but whole process. why I should attend under that environ, the whole thing is disintegrated, yet still operating

And if i were to state that as an objection to attendance, id be sanctioned. Thats really screwed up.

I know i'm going to be assessed and decided upon by some system and company thats complete failure mode. THAT ANNOYS ME.

Uncomfortable about it is a very tame explanation of how I feel on it.

Rant over.

Walking into a situation voluntarily like that would not be something ANYONE would consider, and yet its a mandatory demand.

UPDATE 31st AUGUST, The date of this supposed to be walking through a broken system, the system "Medical Services" (ATOS) ring me about 11am and CANCEL the appointment because "The doctor is sick" 

Yep, you couldnt make it up. 

LAST time I had the fortune of being assessed, ATOS gave me 12 points hence Fit For Work. 

The DWP phoned me to tell me this, and then paused. A killer pause. And said they had decided this wasnt the case, as ATOS had MISSED important info that was actually on the ESA50 form. And told me I was in WRAG. 
It took a couple of months and the assistance of my MP to find out what had happened.
ATOS had awarded 12 points, DWP "discovered" info had not been considered correctly, and awarded an extra 8 points, giving me 20. 
To this day, I still dont know what info was "missed" but an 8 point difference is a shambles.

Assuming Someone is drunk. They might not be...

Without any prejudice at all to the policing of a busy city centre

JUST NOW Seeing a tweet from GMP city Centre team: 

Patrols are on route to a drunk man in a wheelchair in the middle of Dale St, NQ refusing to move for motorists.
I retweeted It and also asked Them If He Was OKAY, as "Sometimes Illness can be mistaken for drunk."

Then it dawned, they werent actually there yet.

They didnt know IF he was drunk, or possibly ill.

Illness: MS is one....stroke another , as is dehydration, fatigue from other, organ damage, mental illness. etc etc.
Many illnesses can be interpreted incorrectly as drunk.

He also may have been distressed, and requests to move may not be the kindest ever made, also were the kerbs in that place where he was enabled for wheelchair easy use?

A tweet, I think that " a man in a difficult situation reported, we're on our way" wouldve been better, especially knowing the man was reported to them as in a wheelchair.

"drunk man in wheelchair" when they dont know cos not arrived yet is an inconsiderate tweet at many levels.

Acknowledge however, he may well be a twat, in a chair, who actually is drunk and obnoxious. But tweeting before they get there a bit off.

The City centre team responded.

Hi! I see what your saying but we've based the tweet off a member of public who spoke to him.
The man in the wheelchair was drunk & is well known to C/C officers he declined any medical assistance.
I totally agree and we're not judging but can only work of what we're told by the caller :)
