... To not reverse?

Idle AIBU really but I hate drivers who lean on their horns

Busy commuter railways station car park off v busy 30mph road

I turn right across traffic (safely) to go into station car park. It's a one way, so entrances and exits are separate.

There's a driver who's come to a stop just inside the entrance. As I sit behind him or her, they merrily start to reverse. (I guess for whatever reason they'd decided they didn't want to be in the car park...)

I sat there thinking 'eh?' And then (as they sort of reversed around me) they leaned on the horn.

Wibu not to reverse into a flow of traffic to accommodate someone who didn't want to drive around the car park and come out of the actual sodding exit, forwards, like a normal human?

And would I have been unreasonable to give them the finger? (I didn't)

Yanbu. Sounds like they messed up and got stressed out. Don't worry about it.

Not worth giving it a second thought
May have been easier if you had gone round then other driver leaving them to reverse into traffic

Thanks all. Beeping just really annoys me - even if you had the moral high ground to start with (which this driver didn't) you lose it when you start beeping IMO.

Yeah I probably could have Rosie - maybe that's what they were getting cross about! They were reversing at an angle (to go around me) & so the front of their car was swinging across the front of mine. and tbh by this point I was so baffled by what they were doing that I thought I should remain completely stationary until they'd stopped being insane.

YANBU, if they want to pull a dangerous stunt like that and risk causing an accident then that's their stupid choice, you did the responsible thing by refusing to be party to it.
