Have a lot of time for Yaxley-Lennon?

A term I've yet to use. 

 

Did score a cracking Benetton shirt once, though.

On this subject not a muscle man but occasionally i drive along Belford Gardens on the way home and a few times iv'e noticed some wee old wifie with a dirty high viz jacket on and a notepad and it looks like she's writing down registration numbers of cars going past, not sure if she gets pissed off at parents of Stewarts Melville pupils parking/driving in the street although she is the opposite end strange behaviour. She also used to stand with the cardboard 20 MPH sign beside her when the speed limits were brought in. Apologies if it's your relative.

Every time I open the thread I'm half expecting something like that. Disappointed again. :(

How’s it going Ray😊 Never seen her, but you just reminded me of Gary the hi-viz guy who hangs around all the taxi ranks. Have a wee chuckle to myself watching everyone do exactly what they are told by him and he isn’t even a taxi marshal.

Not particularly comfortable with this thread to be honest. It seems to have developed into making fun of the mentally ill and/or homeless.

 

Taking pictures or describing people begging or making fun of people who are clearly ill doesn’t really sit too well with me (some of who I know and speak to when I pass).

 

Maybe I’m just a snowflake etc

Sitting on the taxi rank on the Royal Mile right now and he’s just walked passed backwards, all the way to the top up the centre of the road shouting. Had my hand on my phone to film him, but made eye contact with him and he just kept staring at me. I wasn’t risking getting the taxi damaged, as I (like others) have now got enough money troubles right now, without that nutter setting off.

I'm sure the authorities are aware of him. Just not the ones doing medical trials.

I wonder how he will react to a complete lockdown. Can’t see him accepting it and staying put wherever he lives. He’ll be trying to smash down the door of whichever gym he uses now.

Was out last night bud and it’s really grim. It was like some apocalyptic movie, just nobody around. I’m not going to moan about the money aspect of it, as at the end of the day, there are folk worse off than myself. All the folk living on the street were going up to all the taxis asking for money, as there is just nobody else around for them to get some much needed money off.
 

Sad times😞

passed him about 30 mins ago (1040pm) about 200 yards down this same road but he was walking back up the way into the oncoming traffic. 
I had to slow down and go round him on opposite side of the road, he had the same clothes on as in these photos and was throwing his bottle of water in the air 

 

He just looked into my car and laughed

Needs sectioned. To maintain his body mass would require a large intake of energy (food). Somebody is providing it.

Thanks buddy. I’m actually done with it now though. I’m genuinely frightened about all this now. I can’t stop worrying about my family.

Still doing his usual. Lately he has been abusing folk near the parliament building. His normal phrases such as only the strong shall survive the weak shall perish.

It was all written about him in the Evening News some time ago. 6 months roughly, I think.

 

It was a report about the 5 recognised 'characters' in Edinburgh. He was called Rocky in that, I think. I don't know if that was from anywhere else or what they named him at the time.

 

It was Rocky plus the old man in the wheelchair getting money for children charity, the South American woman with all of the things stuck in her face and two others I can't remember.

Might've mentioned here before but he was down East Market Street one time shouting nonsense about Belarus. Also claiming he is the chosen one.

Mandy is defo a character. First encountered her in the Hearts shop almost 20 years ago.

 

She's got an aggressive side though. Witnessed her getting pretty loud and aggro in St Andrew Square once, and another time I went into Wetherspoons at the Omni on a Sunday morning and she was with 2 police officers apologising to the manager. Must've threw a benny of sorts.

A couple of months or so ago, I saw her confront a woman on a bus, shouting and swearing at her because she said she wasn't 'going out tonight', and said she 'couldn't be bothered' when asked 'why not'. She seemed to take great offence at that. She was very apologetic when the driver stopped the bus and threatened to chuck her off.

The time I witnessed her get irate was because there was a sign saying George Street was being closed and she wanted to know why. She was with someone, a lady in her 40's who seemed like a carer of sorts. Never seen Mandy with a carer though. She was screaming by the time I got far enough to not hear her, which was pretty far.
