A concerned citizen who obviously looks up to Ralphie's father in "A Christmas Story" complains about one particular tree pit on Marion Street in East Boston:
Someone's getting coal on their stocking! I asked for Marion Street between White and Monmouth in Eastie to be cleaned in case # 101000989879. Well, surprise! Someone in public works should have a nose longer than Pinocchio by now. The crap on the street by the curb and on the sidewalk on the odd side of the street (3-21 Marion St) survived the two snow storms in tact. I've lived in developing countries with open sewers and the trash here looks more vile. Please be sure that the cotton headed ninny-muggins who claimed to have "swept" up the dog feces, trash, empty cat food dishes, etc actually does it. Merry Christmas.
With a photo of said trash, natch.
