    No. But you get some sort of warranty with just about every product nowadays.

    Cars, electronics, consumer goods of all kinds.

    Nothing. And I didn't say it did.

    I was saying that any other product has a warranty of some sort.

    What has 'personal responsibility' got to do with councils?

    Default Council Window Cleaners Required?

    Does it get much weirder?
    Baffling heritage rules mean Christchurch cafe cannot clean windows
    22 Nov 2019
    "It's very embarrassing for customers to come up to us and ask why we haven't been cleaning our windows," he said. "We have beautiful views from our cafe, but there's a 20-millimetre gap between our windows, which we can't get in between." The cafe has put up signs to explain to customers why the windows are so dirty. Restaurateur Andrew Male said it would be relatively simple for the cafe staff to remove the protective glass with the right tools, but they were not allowed. The rules were set by the Christchurch City Council, which paid for the restoration.
