Towing the line

Yesterday for my Silent Sunday I posted this photo: It caused great discussion, well done Midlife Single Mum who got the closest.

 It says

 "Attention your bin is placed incorrectly, please ensure the lid opening is against the street"

I found it attached to our bin this week. Dutchie swears that the bin was the right way round.

But it made me laugh, the time it probably took the guy from the town hall to go round in his car and check the bins was probably more than it would take the bin men themselves to turn it round!

Towing the line, that is what you do when you live in a new country, you follow their rules. I thought we were, after 2 years I thought we had just about got everything right, everything in place, seems we still have rules to learn.

I wonder do you ever learn everything about a country.?

  1. Yes that makes sense now. Cant imagine a rule lie that here unless they wanted a bin riot!

  2. Why did we all think it was German? And I went along with it even though I know you live in Holland. Anyway I do love a good puzzle so thanks for that. :)
