Confusion Over Repeat Roadnames

New development Love’s Farm is throwing postmen and pizza deliverers into confusing by re-using existing road names.

The latest road to gain a name on the over-priced estate is Fox Brook – a road which already exists near Longsands Road.

“This is jokes,” said local postie “Big” Darren Persil. “We’ve already got two Crescents and two Kings Roads.”

To add to the confusion, the town sports Cambridge Street and Cambridge Road, which join eachother end to end. The situation is repeated in Huntingdon Street.

It is thought that the Council plans to re-use a number of other road names in Love’s Farm, including Avenue Road, St Neots Road and Market Square. “Of course, there won’t actually be a market on the Market Square,” said councillor Oliver Barford, “but this re-use will save plenty of creative time that could be used to attract a cinema or something innit.”

      I must draw your attention to an omittance you made in the article above. For years, nay decades, I have been extremely inconvenienced by this town having two Brook Street/Roads.

      As for telephone numbers. I DO SO wish people would check the numbers they dial, as it has also caused me very great inconvenience over four decades. Because people make mistakes, I am forced to screen all my calls, and being severely disabled, and in acute and chronic pain, including being forced to endure the side effects of drugs to hopefully help keep me alive for some little more time yet, this also causes great agitation and shocks when I try to make every effort to answer telephone calls for people who wish to order a Chinese meal!!! No. I will not change my telephone number, as I was granted this number in 1963, and all my friends, both home and abroad, know this to be mine, and therefore know I am still living. I am also forced to direct directions to my house when ordering food I cannot afford, and in the future I will not answer any telephone call until I know who is trying to speak to me by telephonic communication. It is also my FAX number, so is very useful in my forced-to-be-housebound situation. Accept this as the only Formal Warning. Many thanks. Grannie.
