After a strange video of a guy approaching a combine harvester in a Berkshire field to complain about dust surfaced, Twitter users derided “entitled townies” arguing with residents in the country. He said that the dust had “ruined his family picnic.”
It is just one of many bizarre incidents involving tourists in rural areas, with stories of tourists’ automobiles obstructing highways and parking in farmer’s fields while snapping pictures.
When will people realise that the countryside is a workplace and not a theme park? wrote Andy Tradesmantrucker.
This is what happens when people leave cities for the tranquilly of the countryside, Sue tweeted. They fail to understand that the countryside is a location of employment, not a vacation spot. There are commotions, odours, dust, and muck on the route.
Colchester resident Jaggers said, “I grew up on a farm. People that relocate next to a farm and then whine about the odour, the filth, the dust, and the noise always astonish me. Unreal.’
In another article, Catherine Appleton said that guests had said things like “it’s too dark at night to feel comfortable,” “cows mooing woke them up,” and “the distant sound of neighbours’ tractors woke them up” at her prior vacation rental in Devon.
Eleanor Gilbert, a 20-year-old agricultural student, and her mother Sandy, 51, can be seen rushing to move the guy out of the line of the massive 16-tonne truck as they approach their wheat field in Berkshire on Saturday, August 13.
Dan Wallis, her stepdad, was operating the radio when her mother called him. Oh my God! was shouted as the camera zoomed to see a guy standing in front of the combine harvester wearing a red t-shirt.
As the guy complained, Sandy made an effort to defuse the situation and remove him from the hazardous equipment.
He was really fortunate not to have been struck by a car, Miss Gilbert said in a tweet. Mom, thanks for calming things down.
It’s a 10/10 for idiocy, Mr. Wallis subsequently told the Sun. To complete the grain harvest, we are working nonstop.
Does he not know the source of the bread in that sandwich?
It is not the first time outsiders and natives have fought in the nation.
A farmer in Cornwall, England, covered a tourist’s Mercedes Benz with slurry in May of 2020 after the motorist parked on his property to go to the beach.
Near a gate on his property in Tintagel, the fabled birthplace of King Arthur and a popular tourist destination, the tractor driver spat mud all over the expensive automobile.
As hundreds of people rushed to the shore to enjoy the nice weather during the bank holiday weekend, footage of the event started to surface.
He was heard saying: “The beach is good and bustling today – everyone is probably socially distancing” in the tape, which the farmer shared online.
Because they are so busy, they choose to park in the field.
The farmer responds, “I’ve almost done buddy, I’m not stopping,” when a youngster asks what he intends to do.
The husbandman, driving a Claas, then launches the slurry out of the rear of his vaccine tank and onto the black Mercedes.
Using his forklift tractor to overturn and shatter a vehicle parked on his driveway, County Durham farmer Robert Hooper, 57, was exonerated of criminal damage in February of this year.
In a situation that was caught on camera, Mr. Hooper, 57, drove at the Vauxhall Astra, lifted it into the air, overturned it onto its roof, and pushed it into a road while enraged Charlie Burns, 21, kicked the tractor in frustration but to no use.
A jury found Hooper not guilty of reckless driving and criminal damage despite the driver of the automobile recording Hooper’s telehandler tractor leaving the car in a shattered wreck.
On June 6 of last year, at around 5.30 p.m., the event occurred after Mr. Burns and his buddy had spent a steamy summer day swimming at Low Force near Barnard Castle, County Durham.
On their way home, they drove through Hooper’s Brockersgill Farm in Newbiggin-in-Teesdale, where Mr. Johnson’s Astra, a Vauxhall Finance courtesy vehicle, had two flat tyres.
Hooper’s defence attorney Michael Rawlinson said in court that Burns was “angry and inebriated,” hit the farmer in the face hard enough to break his spectacles, called him a nonce, and requested that the police “open him up.”
