Miss Havisham who comments here on occasions has her own blog “Miss Havisham’s Tea Party”. Miss H as she is lovingly know to us out here in Far East LA, lives in Pasadena. (You know, that city who’s mayor got the coveted Metblogs Grinch of the Year last year).
Miss H spotted a couple of old used hotel type TV’s in the parkway near her home. They were too big for her to lift and move on her own. She called the City of Pasadena for some help. A few hours later the offending TV’s are picked up.
A week later the lovely Miss H gets a letter from the City of Pasadena. She is reminded it is illegal to dump items in front of her house. She is responsible for properly disposing of the offending items, even when dumped by strangers. Yes, a homeowner in Pasadena is responsible for the dumping by strangers. They can be fined for not properly taking care of it.
Nice. The victim of random dumping can get fined by the city.
To make matters worse, this weeks trash service included this orange tag added to her dumpster. Adding insult to injury it was in a language she does not speak or understand. (Click to make it bigger and decipher if you can as me no habla either).
Time for another goose step march around the Peoples Republic of Pasadena?
