My neighbour is an inconsiderate arse but I don't have a leg to stand on :(

And so I can't knock on his door and moan at him which is riling me up even more...

I live in a terraced house with no off-road parking. Our street is a mix of this type of housing and a few big houses with driveways so parking is tight. The bloke two doors up (end of terrace) had his front garden turned into a driveway so his wife parks her car on there whilst he parks his 4x4 to the left of his house so his wife can easily get on/off the drive without him needing to come out and move the 4x4.

Now, the idiot has bought one of those massive Warrior cars (4x4 with an extra bit on the back) and he has taken to parking outside my house every single day and not moving it once so no-one even gets a fair crack of the whip at getting that space. It also takes up two spaces, pretty much. It just sits there all day. And (melodramatic) it blocks loads of light from my front door/window because it is fecking huge and black.

I don't have any argument to give him though. He's in a legitimate space. All he is guilty of is being inconsiderate. Every time I look of of my window and see this behemoth of a vehicle sat there I can feel my piss boiling. angry

Let his tyres down every night.

BupcakesandCunting Mon 02-Jul-12 16:28:55

I definitely have not considered this.

FaceForRadio Mon 02-Jul-12 16:29:58

paint a big bright yellow sunshine on his car

NoGoodNamesLeft Mon 02-Jul-12 16:30:17

My dad puts cones out to reserve 'his' space outside the house. confused

All I can suggest is asking him nicely to move it, because you are doing some imaginary building work and you are worried that it will get scratched or damaged as you take materials in and out of the house. Then park your own car there and be resigned to the fact you can never use it again, but at least you've won the battle of the space.

FaceForRadio Mon 02-Jul-12 16:30:25

obviously I get the prize for most helpful response.

Treblesallround Mon 02-Jul-12 16:31:48

Poor you, but you're right, nothing you can do, could you make a feature of it? flowers on the bonnet, that sort of thing?

Passmethecrisps Mon 02-Jul-12 16:32:39

Hire a skip to add the the story of building work then just leave it there. Forever. Neither of you will get to use the space but you have won he moral victory

FaceForRadio Mon 02-Jul-12 16:33:36

do you have dc? maybe they could play in the garden with a ball?

after the car has been hit a few times by the ball he might move it.

Obviously this would be a plan, your dc would be in on it and when he complains you give them into trouble, but are not able to promise that they won't do it again...

mayaswell Mon 02-Jul-12 16:33:43

YANBU. My MIL had a neighbour with a big ugly van which he parked outside her house every weekend. It really made her cross.
Eventually she went up to him and cowed him into not being so selfish, but retired headmistresses can do that, I guess. Shall I send her over?

Passmethecrisps Mon 02-Jul-12 16:34:15

trebles that is genius. Use the back part as a large, mobile planter! He gets to use the space but you get to admire the lovely flowers.

P.S. why does he need a large car when he appears not to go anywhere?

FaceForRadio Mon 02-Jul-12 16:34:16

A skip! Excelent idea? Has anyone suggested this to Reality?

Obviously nothing you can do - I have exactly the same, lots of vans in our street and one of those warriors too - I just sigh a little inside when I see them directly outside as they do block all the light into the front room.

Thankfully they aren't there every day or every second of the day as the gloom would be really annoying for me after a while.

WinkyWinkola Mon 02-Jul-12 16:35:45

Those Warrior/Animal cars are monstrous. I wonder why someone would feel the need to drive a car named like that.

I feel for you, op. I have a similar problem in that my neighbours have four cars and a van. The van and one car is always parked outside my house.

I swear the neighbours snigger as they see me trying to usher in 3 dcs, a dog, carrying shopping and school bags at 30 weeks pg.

Luckily we are intending to move later this year!

BupcakesandCunting Mon 02-Jul-12 16:35:47

Passmethecrisps not just one large car but two! Two large cars! The fat cunt

Please send your MIL, Maya.

fruitysummer Mon 02-Jul-12 16:35:48

Is there nothing you can do though as it's blocking your light?

I know no one owns the road etc but surely it is causing an obstruction in this instance? Altough not in the normal way of blocking someone in, being on the pavement?

Is there enough space for emergency vehicles to get past?

Treblesallround Mon 02-Jul-12 16:36:13

Or use the back of the car as a skip if it's one of those open ones? grin

WinkyWinkola Mon 02-Jul-12 16:36:28

I mean usher in the house from five or six houses down the street.

Passmethecrisps Mon 02-Jul-12 16:37:22

Pay some local rapscallions to ride their bikes round and round it while looking suspicious. If you dig deep you could even get some elder siblings to start using it as a hang-out

ThisTimeNextYearRodney Mon 02-Jul-12 16:37:27

Second the skip, you could fill it with water and have a lovely private swimming pool. Or put some carp in and enjoy some fishing

PropertyNightmare Mon 02-Jul-12 16:37:36

He will have to move his car at some point. Be ready when he does with some smashed perspex ready to sprinkle on the road outside your house. It will look like broken glass, no one will park there, Robert is your mother's brother and Bob's your uncle ;-).

If he sweeps it up, do the same again.

ThisTimeNextYearRodney Mon 02-Jul-12 16:38:52

My DH has one of those monstrosities and people do often use it as a skip. Generally very annoying, but we did get a giant tuber (or similar brass instrument) left in it once, which has made a lovely garden ornament

well.... you could ask him to move it! I mean, he might just turn round and say no, but it's worth a try surely?
point out that you hate to complain, but it blocks your light out and you'd realy appreciate being able to park there as parking is such a pain on the street as you're sure he knows

BupcakesandCunting Mon 02-Jul-12 16:39:50

I just feel like taking the reasonable yet honest approach... "Look, mate. You're being a cunt. Your beast machine is blocking my light and you're space hogging. Shift your wheels."

Passmethecrisps Mon 02-Jul-12 16:40:30

Brilliant trebles seeing some 'builders' flinging broken sinks and bits of unit into the back of his Toyota Pedestraniansquisher would make him shift it sharpish.

To set this one up, head down the pub at about 5:30 and offer a round of drinks to anyone willing to bring alone a bit of old tat.

Treblesallround Mon 02-Jul-12 16:45:51

I think that is a most eloquent (sp) (elocunt?) way of putting it Bupcakes. Tell us how you get on grin

Rainydayagain Mon 02-Jul-12 16:47:44

Why don't you change yours to a drive?

BupcakesandCunting Mon 02-Jul-12 16:49:20

Because I don't necessarily want a drive that much. Nor do I have a problem with parking at the other end of the street if needs be. I'm just pissed off that his massive car seems permanently in situ, and it is so huge that two other cars could park there. Why can't he just park over his own drive?! confused

BupcakesandCunting Mon 02-Jul-12 16:49:41

Plus, terraced houses with gardens turned into drives look terrible.

You could surreptitiouosly put kippers or something in the back, and the local cats would come to investigate and shit in there...

Rainydayagain Mon 02-Jul-12 17:07:10

I agree with you and would hate it too.

Its difficult you could glass outside your house to keep him away. Tell him youths were leaning against it?

People are selfish.

tiddleypompom Mon 02-Jul-12 17:16:07

You've a splendid way with words op & i favour the upfront approach. Go & tell him & let us know what happens. We could always enlist an army of MILs if necessary.

DowagersHump Mon 02-Jul-12 17:20:26

I like the pilchards idea

WhiteWidow Mon 02-Jul-12 17:27:15

I hate this! It's so bloody ignorant. There's no need for them to have 3 fuel guzzlers anyway!

I got annoyed at the workmen who keep blocking my mums window. (its across from a large bakery, they come everyday to fill the place with vats of flour that they plug into the wall) She lives in a small terraced street, no garden, they park their van right onto the pavement in front of her window and it actually blocks out her light. Not only this but she's suffering from a brain tumour and they're banging on the bloody machines they use with hammers (which I know is unnecessary because another group of them don't do it) which hurts her head sad I've complained to the council but never got a reply. Bastards. I told them to move their van the other day though, they did.

Can you not speak to this man? I would.

JamieandTheOlympicTorch Mon 02-Jul-12 17:28:36

I think fake glass outside is the best suggestion. He is being inconsiderate - why 6can't he park across his own driveway?

ZillionChocolate Mon 02-Jul-12 17:31:52

If pigeons can be trained to fly home, can they be trained to crap all over a particular car?

EnjoyResponsibly Mon 02-Jul-12 17:32:52

You have my total sympathy. Yes, of course he can park a fully taxed and insured vehicle on the road but in the same breath he doesn't have to be a total twunt about it.

Where I am parking is horrendous. The overweight woman opposite parks right in the middle of two spots because then she's dead level with her gate. Believe me when I say she could use the walk. Bloke up the road with a 3 car drive parks his and his wife's cars on the drive and his van on the road all weekend.

mayorquimby Mon 02-Jul-12 17:42:24

I'm with the neighbour on this one. It's a public road ffs

WhiteWidow Mon 02-Jul-12 17:43:14

mayor a little consideration goes a long way! How much room does the man want?!

WhiteWidow Mon 02-Jul-12 17:43:32

Like a child who wants all the toys...

Hebiegebies Mon 02-Jul-12 17:49:21

Have some sympathy for this man, he obviously has some unmet need in his life to need such a car. Perhaps SP syndrome? grin

Yes he can park there, but if it's blocking light it's hard to live with

thestringcheesemassacre Mon 02-Jul-12 17:51:34

OP, Get thee over to Realitys thread. We have some gung ho ideas for this exact situation.

SoleSource England Mon 02-Jul-12 17:55:28

You can have some grass and a driveway OP.

I don't really feel it is being inconsiderate as he has nowhere else to park it.

WhiteWidow Mon 02-Jul-12 18:09:33

Maybe he should have thought about that before buying a third car? What if the OP decided she wanted a car and wanted to park it there?

SoleSource England Mon 02-Jul-12 18:19:45

Then OP would be perfectly entitled.

mayorquimby Mon 02-Jul-12 18:23:42

Then she'd be allowed to park there as its a public highway confused
And if he came on complaining about someone parking on a public road he'd be told yabu

SoupDragon Mon 02-Jul-12 18:26:50

Just because you can do something doesn't mean that you should. Sometimes thinking about someone other than yourself is a good idea.

SoupDragon Mon 02-Jul-12 18:27:15

SoleSource England Mon 02-Jul-12 18:33:51

hopefully he'll do something considerate for once like drop dead dead as my inconsiderate arsehole of a neighbour did after seven years of HELL

I am weeping with joy at seeing 'rapscallions' on this thread , not heard it for years.

mayorquimby Mon 02-Jul-12 18:39:39

Yeah but this is one of those things where people are split. I see nothing inconsiderate about parking on a public road as do many others.

I find the people who think they own a space of road that happens to be outside their house or people who mark a space with cones to be the inconsiderate ones.
So it's not really a simple case of thinking of others as many people will think of them and conclude "who'd get upset over something that has nothing to do with them/anyone who gets upset over a public space has a weird sense of entitlement"

WhiteWidow Mon 02-Jul-12 18:42:01

It's blocking her light, that's what her problem is. Why couldn't he be considerate and
1. Not insist on having 3 cars or
2. Park the smaller one there

CaliforniaLeaving Mon 02-Jul-12 18:42:58

Start tucking fast food wrappers and rubbish under his windscreen wipers and tuck it in the bumpers, make it look abandoned. It might piss him off enough to move it.

LittleTyga Mon 02-Jul-12 18:43:00

Bake some muffins - pop over - ask very sweetly if he wouldn't mind parking elsewhere in order to allow some sunlight in to your home. Might just work?

SoleSource England Mon 02-Jul-12 18:43:55

There is NOTHING OP can legally do WhiteWidow OP has acknowledged this fact.

WhiteWidow Mon 02-Jul-12 18:45:35

I never said there was did I? I never said anything about anything being legal or illegal, I said it was inconsiderate and rude.

Is this your car by any chance hmm

RedHelenB Mon 02-Jul-12 18:47:16

Turn your front garden into a driveway?

holidaysarenice Mon 02-Jul-12 18:48:22

Have you considered that in paving his driveway he cud have broken the law, re the lowering of the kerb on/off at the pavement? Planning p is needed xx

Can you get a dropped kerb and not turn the front into a drive?
That's what an old neighbour of mine did. I thought it was quite a sneaky way of reserving a space but she must have been desperate.

Glaikit Mon 02-Jul-12 18:49:45

Bupcakes, my neighbour has a broken down car on his drive. I could send it to you to park outside your door, at least it's smaller than the beast, and you could paint a pretty picture on it!

SoleSource England Mon 02-Jul-12 18:50:16

confused

People are inconsiderate and rude. Just today some cunt drove at me at full speed instead of giving way as was his obligation according to the highway code. He then proceeded to shout abuse at me.

Off topic but I was shock at my calm reaction, must be my age.

I do have a car, yes but not that one.

SundaeGirl Mon 02-Jul-12 18:52:44

I agree with MayorQimby. Surely the parking has always been there? confused. Didn't the OP notice when she moved in?

If it was a man-with-van hard working plumber type the effect on the OP would be the same (blocked light by ugly vehicle) but she'd probably be a lot less pissed off. This just comes down to a curtain twitching her-in-the-house-at-number-24-with-orrible-cars objection to the neighbour when he's got parking issues like everyone else.

SoleSource England Mon 02-Jul-12 18:54:41

Dropped kerb OP. About £500 ish??????

Cheaper if you have a disabled member of the family?

JamieandTheOlympicTorch Mon 02-Jul-12 18:57:32

It is inconsiderate because he can't be arsed to move his car to let his wife out, but he'll make his neighbour park down the road and block her light.

helenthemadex Mon 02-Jul-12 19:01:01

how about next time you see him you say you are very sorry to hear about his problems in the trouser area with his very small and insignificant penis, and say that you hope his large gas guzzler is proving to be an adequate substitute

SundaeGirl Mon 02-Jul-12 19:05:48

So, every time the wife wants to leave her DH should go out and move his car too? Really? Wouldn't it just be easier if he parked on the street like everyone else?

quoteunquote Mon 02-Jul-12 19:06:07

what ever you do, when the children are covered in sunblock, don't let them brush against the paintwork as they squeeze past, it would ruin the paint work.

FutureNannyOgg Mon 02-Jul-12 19:07:20

I feel for you, I used to have a neighbour (on a terraced st where no one had drives, the front gardens weren't deep enough) who had a carpet cleaning business and used to park 3 long wheel base transits on the street, that's at least 4 car spaces, plus his personal car. I used to fantasize about various ways to take out my frustrations on them.

trixie123 Mon 02-Jul-12 19:11:21

we used to live in a row of terraces and it was always touch and go if you could park close but everyone had a fair chance so it was an annoyance but fair enough. Then the (rented) end house got a new tenant who permanently parked (but never was seen driving) THREE jags all along the whole row so that no-one ever had a chance. At the time I was pregnant and had a non-walking toddler so having to park some distance away was a mare. I never understood why he rented a house with no parking if he had these cars. Arse!

sleepybump Mon 02-Jul-12 19:14:43

Just knock and ask if he wouldnt mind parking his new large car on his drive as it doesnt seem to be in use and is cutting out your light, so the smaller car on the road might free up some space for everyone?

Unless his wifes disabled this seems like a reasonable thing to ask.

Debs75 Mon 02-Jul-12 19:16:59

My next door neighbour refuses to use her drive but then parks her car right upto her boundary with ther other neighbour so they then struggle to park their cars or even get one on the drive. Really she is as mean and nasty as they get regarding parking and berates anyone who deems to park in 'her space'

PJulie Mon 02-Jul-12 19:17:13

Has he lowered the curb to his drive, if not take to parking outside his house so his wife can not get out of the drive.

SundaeGirl Mon 02-Jul-12 19:21:01

A house in your street has two cars? OK? OK
But they won't park so they block each other in? And this is not OK? Why not OK?

Please OP don't scratch the car, use it as a skip, call him a cunt, smear it with sun cream or any other crazy neighbour type stuff. So he's parking so he's not blocking anyone in? That is considerate, you just don't happen to like that he's considerate of his DW.

Tabliope Mon 02-Jul-12 19:24:58

I'd definitely ask them politely. I had the same problem with neighbours opposite parking a van outside mine. My house is lower than the pavement so you couldn't actually see anything else when you looked outside. It wasn't so much blocking the light as north facing anyway but I did hate looking out and only seeing that van. The woman of the house popped in to see me once for a coffee and immediately said I'm so sorry, you can't have that van outside all the time and made her husband move it and never park it there again.

I'd say I'm really sorry to ask but is there anyway you could park somewhere else sometimes. You might be really surprised. You could always make up something about someone in the house having a long term illness and you need the space on the off chance of access for an ambulance (not sure how comfortable you'd being making this up).

cerealqueen Mon 02-Jul-12 19:29:42

YANBU to be pissed off but don't assume he is a thoughtless twunt until you ask him if he might possibly move it. He may surprise you!

Herrena Mon 02-Jul-12 19:31:52

<delurks>

sleepybump may have hit upon the best option op... you turn up with a statement of your problem and then suggest a solution. IME people tend to be a lot less fuck-offy if you take that approach!

You have my sympathy anyway. I get very grumpy with our neighbour across the street if he parks in front of our house, because I know he knows that I've got a non-walking toddler, am 37 weeks PG and struggle with the walk if I have to park further down. Yes he is totally within his rights but it doesn't make me like him angry

I used to deliberately park further from my house so that my somewhat doddery (but not disabled) right-hand neighbour could park easily outside his home - only mentioning this to indicate that it's not one rule for me and another for everyone else!!

OhDoAdmitMrsDeVere Mon 02-Jul-12 19:48:30

The bloke across the road had a car transporter. Not a double decker but bloody huge nevertheless. He used to park it outside my house on the other side of the green from his hmm
Then he would get in it at 5.30 am and rev the engine for 40 fucking minutes.

I eventually asked him to stop because it was disturbing my DD who was gravely ill. Even him, the biggest wankface in the world couldnt argue with me.

I still hate him. He is on my list....

Japanese Light Truck.

Outside his manor.

Plugged into the mains and on all night (sound system optional).

Or this one. grin

OhDoAdmitMrsDeVere Mon 02-Jul-12 19:50:17

ANDDDDD
The fucking icecream van parks in my OH's disabled parking space every bloody evening after he has gone to work.

It drives me insane. Its not like OH needs it, he isnt there, but its the principal!
And mainly because the noise of the generator outside my window makes me want to go and kick the driver's head in.

BupcakesandCunting Mon 02-Jul-12 19:53:23

He has a dropped kerb/white line painted by the council by his driveway so it's all legit'. Nothing I can do in that respect.

SundaeGirl most people are considerate of those closest to them so I'm not going to give him any medals for making sure his wife isn't put out by his parking. hmm I think that on a street where parking space is at a premium, taking up three spaces with two cars is a bit wankery is all.

SoleSource England Mon 02-Jul-12 19:55:25

PMSL @ Talc links.

It's the supermarket T-Rex grin

EdgarAllenPimms Mon 02-Jul-12 20:00:43

the house a few doors down has a disabled space - it is used rarely by visiting carers. an elderly couple live there with (i think) their son, who owns a sports car he won't street park as it is too valuable...

all houses on this road have at least a shared drive...

if you are dim enough to park in the disabled space, you get the sports car parked on/ blocking your drive.

karma in action.

SundaeGirl Mon 02-Jul-12 20:04:07

So he should be inconsiderate of his wife so as to make space outside your house so that it might be possible for a smaller car to park there, or an even bigger one for that matter?

Ugh. Some people have small cars some people have big cars some people have vans some people have lorries some people have car transporters (OK, less frequent).

YABU. But yes, I agree that it might be worth asking him to move. However, if parking is as tight as all that then eventually he is going to be back there and it'll wind you up more if you've said something.

WhiteWidow Mon 02-Jul-12 20:07:10

Sundae girl, I think the point is that no-one should be inconvenienced. And no-one should have their light blocked because he's decided to get a monster car. Which, he doesn't need as the OP has stated that he and his wife already have a car each.

They don't live in a bubble, they need to be aware that other people need to space too and what's fair is fair.

BupcakesandCunting Mon 02-Jul-12 20:07:23

It just winds me up even that he has TWO huge cars. Neither of them move. No-one gets a fair chance at getting the THREE spaces he takes up. Two of my neighbours could park where his penis extension is. angry

WhiteWidow Mon 02-Jul-12 20:08:20

Or, why can't he put it on his drive, and his wife park in the street: less light blockage and creates a new space for a car as his takes up two.

bogeyface Netherlands Mon 02-Jul-12 20:15:02

If he hasnt moved in three days print off an official looking "ABANDONED" notice and stick it on his windshield grin

TheCraicDealer Mon 02-Jul-12 20:18:22

Tell him that your kids are now suffering the effects of rickets due to the lack of light entering their living space. Simples.

OhDoAdmitMrsDeVere Mon 02-Jul-12 20:25:47

When you tell him about the rickets make sure you have at least two sickly, pale waifs with you, looking all sad and scurvish (and a bit infectious)

you could try this

or this

or if neither of those works then I suggest something like this

My neighbours often park outside my house. I have a long front garden so it doesn't really affect me but I wonder why they leave the road and driveway empty outside their own house and put 2 cars in front of mine.....odd

Wheezo Mon 02-Jul-12 20:34:28

I think I might invest in some bird seed and scatter it liberally out my front bedroom window a la Mary poppins - all the better if coated in a bit of lard so it sticks to anything it falls on and has to be pecked at - also I've never known a bird who doesn't like a little toilet time after a nice dinner. Are there any overhanging branches you can attach a bird feeder to?

SoftKittyWarmKitty Mon 02-Jul-12 20:39:24

I feel your pain, OP. I live on a similar sounding road except we don't have front gardens, so the front room window looks directly onto the pavement iyswim. The road is pretty narrow too, so people tend to park half on, half off the pavement, which means if a large vehicle parks directly outside the house it's only about 12ft-ish away from where I sit on the sofa.

Last year, one of the neighbours from about ten houses down parked their manky old camper van directly outside my house, blocking all the light into my living room. It was there for two weeks solid. Every day when I got home from work and saw their hunk of junk still outside my house, I died a little more inside. As I sat watching TV and MN-ing in the evening, every time I glanced out of the window I could feel my bile rising. Until, one glorious day, I turned the corner into my road and it was gone! Oh, sweet joy! I parked my car outside my house for the first time in weeks and didn't move it for days.

Unfortunately there's nothing you can do legally. My only suggestion would be to appeal to his better nature and see if he'll consider parking it elsewhere. Or wait patiently for the day that he goes somewhere then pounce.

LowRegNumber Mon 02-Jul-12 21:05:41

I am really confused op. You say you don't want a dropped curb because of cost and you don't like terrace houses with drives for gardens which is fair enough however, that indicates that you have a garden and are not straight into a pavement. I don't see how it can really he blocking that much light then. With a garden, garden wall and pavement the car must be somewhere between 8 and 15 feet from your window, they are big but not so big that it can make all that much difference to light at that distance surely? I know in our terrace a transit type van makes some difference but we are just 8 feet from it and, tbh, the difference isn't huge.

From the pov of the scene out of your window I can see your point but I honestly think claiming any massive disruption to light is a stretch - unless I am missing something?

geegee888 Mon 02-Jul-12 21:28:12

YANBU. Its a public road. I really don't get this thing of people thinking they own bits of public road, or can dictate what people can and cannot do on them. If its a thing thats so important to you, why don't you buy a house with its own parking?

edam Mon 02-Jul-12 21:30:51

It is inconsiderate to park a flipping big car right outside someone's windows blocking their light.

SundaeGirl Mon 02-Jul-12 21:32:57

Edam, there's a garden in the way. And, anyway where would you have them park? This the street they live on. They'll be outside somebody's window.

besmirchedandbewildered Mon 02-Jul-12 21:35:55

2 big cars?

TINY TINY PENIS.

Probably not visible to the naked eye.

LowReg, I didn't say I didn't want a dropped kerb because of the cost confused I just think that terraced houses with gardens modified to drives look crap.

We have a small garden at the front. Our garden path is about 5ft long then the narrow path leads onto the road. It really does blockout plenty of light. sad

I don't think I own the road, geegee. Like I said, I don't care about parking at the other end of the road. I just don't think it's fair that he takes up three spaces (especially when he could park in front of his own house with one of his massive cars!) and no-one else in the terrace gets a look in with these spaces! HE doesn't own them either!

I'd get the front garden turned into a drive and get a dropped curb. You can either do that or just put up with cars parked in front of your house.

winky you need to come over all faint ,right next to their cars, preferably after you have jsut applied hand/suncream. or slither down the car... making an awful screaching noise of damp hands on paintwork.

Park in front of his drive and leave a note on your car asking him to knock if he needs you to move. Repeat frequently.

Why does he have a ginormous car he apparently never drives?

None of your business!

Was that to me?

Ugh. The curtain twitching!

If it's on the pavement it would be a shame if you were to walk past with a pushchair and a screwdriver and accidentally scratch it. And then turn around having forgotten something and have it happen again. And again.

Who is twitching curtains?

Park in front of his drive and leave a note on your car asking him to knock if he needs you to move. Repeat frequently. Very good suggestion, and you could say to him."I had to park in front of your house as some idiot with an enormous car has parked in front of my house so I've no where to park."
