A man has made an unusual response to a pothole in a residential road in Welwyn Garden City.
It might be the world’s first work of pothole-inspired literature.
Fed up with the state of the road surface in Welwyn Garden City, one man has flexed his creativity to write a satirical diary of a pothole near where he lives on Handside.
Luxury sales professional Gareth Evans, 55, said: “It’s intended to put a smile our faces and to brighten our day.
“Not wishing to offend anyone, so it’s said with humour on a difficult subject that affects all road users.
“There appears to be too many potholes around the Garden City, some of which are quite dangerous and can cost a small fortune in car repairs.”
After all - who knows what the potholes are thinking?
Still waters really do run deep.
Secret diary of a Welwyn Garden City pothole
Day 1- Feeling really hungry again today. Consumed several alloys during the week and I still want more!!
Day 2 - Today is my birthday!
Sun’s shining, blue skies, what a day! Achieved so much since last year! Hopefully, I will reach pond status by the end of the year!
Day 3 - This afternoon I was visited by a local councillor who took several photographs of me! Apparently, Handside residents have been complaining so I’m glad that I was looking at my very best!
Day 4 - Just been informed by the council that I’ve actually achieved pond status so they’re sending me three ducks and a couple of water voles!!
Day 5 - Feeling isolated and utterly alone after formal complaints and a battering on social media resulting in a night of comfort eating - two buses, three vans, 17 cars and a cyclist!!
Day 6 - Not alone after all! Discovered that I have family in Handside Lane and all over Welwyn Garden City!
Day 7 - Attempting to meet up with family members in Handside Lane by becoming as large as possible! Sink hole status on the horizon! Happy days.
Happy days indeed.
