"What we need is joined up thinking"

"Is there any other kind?"
If you were to approach a total stranger and ask "What are you thinking?" and they replied "Squid", would you be satisfied with that, or would you press on and ask "Aha, yes but are you thinking of the plight of the Giant Squid, the word's largest invertebrate, or mayhap the episode of the online comic 'The Anthronauts' entitled 'Plight of the squid', or perhaps you are thinking of a fond pet, or an exotic meal, or do you think only of a Cockneyesque slang term for money?" would you be prepared to accept the reply "I don't know, I haven't got that far yet"?
This is a subject which seems to feature a lot in my blogiary and here we go again.
Yesterday, while we were out, someone snuck down our road putting up notices to say that there would be no onstreet parking today because they would be doing road resurfacing work.
I noticed the problem immediately. Today is the day of the refuse disposal operative. No one could be that stupid, can they?
Yes, they can.
There are men with big lorries out there struggling to resurface the road whilst others struggle to empty our recycling into their big lorries around them.
What we need is joined up thinking.
