Having worked on a cruise ship for a short time many years ago as the passenger liaison officer, I am well aware that the British love to complain.
However, in recent times, there have been some complaints that are quite illogical.
Recently, a person who lived near a farm complained of the clucking of the hens.
Not so long ago, a newcomer to a village complained about the ringing of the church bells.
And finally, a person complained about a stall holder advertising his fruit and vegetables in the time-honoured way of calling out about his products.
If natural farm sounds offend, why buy a property close to a farm?
If you find normal village sounds, such as church bells annoying, why move to a village and live close to a church?
If you find centuries old market traditions irritating, why go to the market?
Finally, why do the authorities jump when they receive just one rather irrational complaint? Colin Bower, Nottingham
