Pauline Read’s bank petition provokes anger

childishWhilst canvassing local bars for signatures for the paper version of my petition I happened on a darts team having their monthly lunch meeting. I knew one of my neighbours was in this team and also knew that she thinks that my confronting the Builder, in the way I have, is not a good thing.

Discretion being the better part of valour, I decided to give her a wide berth. Some of the team did sign my petition at the bar away from the table but,  unfortunately, one well meaning member of the team decided to take the petition to the table to give those in the team who had not signed, but would like to, the opportunity. Some time later a very sheepish well meaner returned the petition to me and said sorry. When I looked at the petition there were signatures that had been crossed out including those I had canvassed at the bar. I let some time elapse to cool down then went over to the table and told my neighbour I was sorry she felt that way but that anything I achieved could only benefit her. She mumbled something about the electricity and the builder having the ‘hump’ because of me! As I was walking away a lady, I now know to be the Captain, jumped up and started verbally abusing me. This I could handle, it was when the finger pointing started and chewed food came flying out her mouth at 90 miles an hour I found distasteful. I had never met the ‘lady’ before and all I could understand of her tirade was that my neighbour was her friend. I had no idea canvassing a petition was so dangerous, its no joke being hit in the face by a lump of liver at 90 miles an hour.

Will this stop me? No! I will invest in a facemask and a hard hat.

A phone call later in the evening revealed that the Captain had scribbled all over the signatures, not the ladies who signed, and had added a gem of her own but did not have the courage to leave it and scribbled over that too.

If you walk into your local bar and see a lady with a clipboard wearing a face mask and a hard hat, it’ll be me – please sign. Click this LINK
