Logan is reporting his next-door neighbour to the police again.

This time, it’s for using a hairdryer before 8am. Last time, it was for trespass by blossom.

“You again,” says the duty sergeant, and he gets the forms.

We all try to ‘Love thy neighbour’, but sometimes they just try our patience.

The people next-door see everything we do, and often, we see more than we would like of them. Sometimes literally.

Their dog barks all day, their children play the recorder all evening, and sometimes, they even grow enormous, genetically-modified vegetables in their garden.

You can always rely on your neighbours; if for nothing else, then at least for an endless supply of passive-aggressive notes of complaint about the position of your recycling bin.

"It’s enough to make Peter and Jane choke on their watercress sandwiches." – The Independent

Do you ever find yourself longing for a simpler time? That time before the horrors of speed-bumps, automated supermarket checkouts and infernal switchboard options; the days when telephones had wires and a reassuring rotating dial, a tweet meant birdsong and Brexit might possibly have meant a new kind of breakfast cereal?

Fear not, for you are not alone. What you need are the new manuals for our times, simple primers for the everyday predicaments we find ourselves in.

Dear friend, what you need is a Ladybird.

Part of the Ladybird Books for Grown Ups series.

“Not very funny”

Only one joke was funny - very funny - but the rest were not and were repetitive.
