To be annoyed with the person next to me in the car park

It's a lovely sunny day, nice and quiet in a small car park about to collect the DCs from school and the idiot in the black BMW next to me has been sitting with their engine running for the last ten minutes, really, thus spoiling my quiet time and polluting the air as well.
I wish I had the guts to say something....

YANBU....idling cars are one of my pet hates. I think it's symptomatic of how "I'm alright, Jack" our society has become.

The only person who's ever bothered me by idling their engine was my neighbour who used to do it in the winter when he left for work at 5am and did it to help him scrape the ice off the windscreen.

I could see why he did it but I still wanted to kill him. He was a nice enough person in other respects though so I let him live.

I don't think I've ever noticed anyone else doing it. I certainly couldn't be bothered about how much petrol they were wasting or how they were killing the environment.

TheFairyCaravan fair enough, you find it difficult to get out of the car. Surely opening all the windows makes a difference though?

I agree sparkling no need for the engine to be running.
