Sticky-beaks not welcome at the Moessinger's East St home
BARRY and Laurie Moessinger prefer an extra set of hands than eyes during their floodwater crisis.
The Depot Hill husband and wife are fuming sightseers joy-ride past their East Street home, under water by almost a metre, and just watch them sweep and sweat, as they try to clean up their house.
Sightseers who venture down East St, near the blocks of houses partly underwater at Depot Hill, should offer a hand to clean up or risk being screamed at by a large placard telling them to p*** off.
The placard belongs to Barry and Laurie and is nailed to a palm tree just outside their home.
Yesterday's floodwater had risen just past the third step to their home's upper level.
Yesterday The Morning Bulletin trudged and sloshed through knee-high murky floodwater, in scorching summer temperatures, to the Moessingers' home.
The pair was sitting on the staircase, away from the murky liquid which settled just beneath them."We are just absolutely annoyed with people who go past our house for their own fulfilment," Barry said.
"Sometimes they get in the way because we are trying to back our vehicles out, with all this rubbish on our trailer, and we can't go past them because their cars are in the way.
"Leave your cars at the water's edge or don't come near here."
