Is it just me or are things different?

I recently returned to Bexhill after 12 years abroad.

I had previously enjoyed the same amount of time as a Bexhill resident. However:

I registered with a doctor and had quite a bit to tell him. After ten minutes he told me that my time was up!

Cars park on corners on double yellow lines without any concern for other road users. Who will be at fault when an accident occurs?

I wrote to Rother District Council saying that I would try and get young people involved in care for the environment by looking after a pathway used by the elderly to walk their dogs.

It is often full of debris, graffiti and dog waste.

I was kindly told that my message would be passed on and that I could expect a reply within two weeks. That was two months ago!

Is it me?
