    When the ne'er-do-wells get a community service order, what do they have to do? Scrub the pavements clean with a toothbrush, paint the double yellow lines with childrens paintbrush?
    Any idea?

    I thought it was stuff like graffiti cleaning, litter picking, painting fences, that sort of stuff

    General maintenance of local authority grounds, tend gardens for pensioners, take very long smoke breaks, eye up the passing talent and exchange info on drug availability.:tongue:

    The young girls are generally forced into prostitution and the boys have to wipe arses in a care home.

    They came round to my place of work once and painted the walls (really quite badly) for us.

    I could tell you the proper sensible answer, but that's maybe not what you want...

    You paint schools, thin out trees, have long coffee breaks and watch football focus if there's a telly about. If they then decide you can be trusted, you can work in charity shops transferring clothes from one hanger to another or sorting out books. If you're really lucky then you might help out being a spare adult for the boys brigade. Supervised work groups are the least boring, although you're more likely to meet some women in the charity shops.

    I was sort of hoping for the real answer and thought I might flush out some humour and knee jerk responses along the way. Trolling I suppose!

    Probation counts as a Community Service Order, it doesn't have to involve actual work.

    no, but someone has graffitied the side of our building and set off a train of thought

    When I did community service, I was picking up litter in the city centre, as well as from hedges and verges. Things like that.

    They do the sort of thing that law abiding youngsters do as part of the Duke of Edinburgh scheme.
