On Monday my friend Mark asked me if I could help my other friend Gemma Bennett on Tuesday move her goldfish and other belongings from her old flat to her knew one.
Mark knows that I like to know in advance before doing something and that I often make plans to do something. When I went down there on Tuesday, I was waiting for Gemma to pack her things and get the goldfish ready, when something unexpected did happen.
Her landlord Richard Davies barged into the property and demanded that I leave. Richard Davies not only said it in a confrontational manner, but when I said I would not leave as I said I was helping Gemma move out he demanded to know my name, and then ordered one of Gemma’s house mates to call the police.
When Gemma said I should leave and I did, Richard Davies started to follow me and began taking pictures of me.
I then asked Richard Davies why he was taking pictures of me and he started harassing me, telling me he did not want me on his property again and then Richard Davies proceeded to tell me that he wanted me to go back to the flat to speak to the police, who were on their way.
This sort of harassment from Richard Davies is not something I or anyone else should have to put up with. He interfered with my clear plan to help Gemma move her goldfish and belongings, and then proceeded to hound me when I did what Gemma wanted me to do and leave.
What sort of world do we live in when people cannot help their friends out without being harassed by people who behave in a
wildly reckless manner like Gemma Bennett’s former landlord Richard Davies.
