Thick as bricks

Dear Spurtle,

The bin outside 6 Scotland Street was dropped on its side a week ago when the Council tried to empty it. This is not a complaint about the Council, who do their best in the face of the clarty citizens of Edinburgh.

This bin has a quantity of builder's rubble in it. It's just too heavy and crucially too top-heavy. This is because the rubble is resting not just on household waste but also on empty cardboard boxes.

Not only clarty but utterly thoughtless.
