Why can't folk...

...leave things alone.

I only posted this photo the other day and I was looking forward to seeing how the flowers bulked up and created a better display... things stand, this won't be happening because mindless yobs wrecked the thing - why?

It wasn't harming anyone and it brought a bit of fun and colour to a very boring paved area of the Southend high street. What fun is there in spoiling things for others - if you don't like something, ignore it but don't deprive others from gaining enjoyment.

It just seems like we live in a culture of 'let's see what we can destroy'...'it's not mine so I can wreck it'.

What an awful outlook to have on life.

Unfortunately, it is becoming all too common as I know from the saga of my front fence.

I was so pleased with the result of repairing and painting my fence (Summer before last)...
...but within no time at all, yobs had damaged two panels even further...I ask again; WHY?

I work damned hard for my money in order to be able to keep things in good repair but it is very de-motivating to put in all the hard work only to have it ruined in the blink of an eye. Since the additional damage to the fence the little 'darlings' have also had a go with black spray paint on one of the concrete posts and a panel.

No-one gives me these things, I have to earn the money for them and put in the effort - so why do they think they have the right to spoil things?

Sorry, rant over but I just needed to get it off my chest..................................................................

I agree Toni, why don't folks leave things alone and learn some respect for other peoples property. Mindless vandalism really annoys me

Ah Toni that's so sad both on the cup and saucer front (I was looking forward to seeing them in full bloom) and on being victimised by people damaging your property - what gives them the right to do something like that! Hope you are OK - sending you hugs

I agree Toni, they just don't seem to understand that that kind of behaviour is totally unacceptable,what makes it worse is that you can't confront them as they only retaliate & their parents swear blind that their little darlings wouldn't do things like that.

how sad. kids today have no idea what respect is. we really need to take our country back and bring GOD back. but your fence looks great!

mindless yobs

Totally agree with your sentiment Toni, I think it is because these yobo types have never actually had to work for anything so have no regard for things that other people have worked hard for. It's such a shame to see nice stuff ruined by such stupidity.
