We often do things that seem to be the right thing, and then learn about unintended things. We had an increasingly bad problem with the neighbourhood birds sitting on a fence and wall along our drive and carport. It got bad enough we had to do something, so up went the bird spikes. A good solution? No more birds on the fences.
Woke up today and there was a row of birds happily sitting on the roof rails on the partner’s SUV, and more than sufficient evidence of same on its roof. I offered to add bird spikes to the SUV’s roof rails but it was not immediately taken up.
Any other stories of doing the obvious and regretting it?
