I probably was a bit unreasonable BUT I double parked to leave dc (very small babies) in the car outside the fish and chip shop while I ran in and picked up order. Bitch car parking woman called out to me from her van as I was walking in the shop that I was parked on a double yellow. Literally 1 second later she was outside putting a ticket on my car and I was literally out of my car for 3 min while I picked up lunch. I was incensed that she wasn't even on patrol but had spotted me from her van and gone out of her sodding way to give me a ticket. I was so angry I called her a fecking bitch and threw the ticket on the floor. Dc too young to notice. Bit embarrassed about anyone else who saw though. Miserable cow!

How very reasonable and positively charming. hmm

Loie159 Tue 23-Oct-12 14:02:12

seriously??? you parked illegally and she TOLD you (so giving you a chance to move) and you ignored her. So she gave you a ticket and you swore at her? And by throwing the ticket away you lost out on the opportunity to have the penalty halved...... YABU and I am surprised you need to ask

RatherBeACyborg Tue 23-Oct-12 14:02:40

Thems the chances you take when you park illegally. So YWBU to park there and YWdefinitelyBU to swear at her.

What is up with the people in this world

I agree Ghostship. People like the OP really exist and make the lives of others an utter misery.

This sort of thread is why I go out of my way to be polite to traffic wardens, they do a horrible job.

I find it hard to believe there are people like the OP, but there are.

ThatVikRinA22 Tue 23-Oct-12 14:04:55

well, i hope you still have the details of how to pay - just throwing the ticket on the floor in a strop does not make it go away.

YABU. you double parked on double yellow lines. Surely you know that you could get a ticket for that?

you do now.

SugariceAndScary Tue 23-Oct-12 14:05:42

Yes you were unreasonable to leave your badly parked car on a double yellow with your very small babies inside!

ReindeerBOOOOllocks Tue 23-Oct-12 14:05:47

This isn't real is it.

Toocber Tue 23-Oct-12 14:05:48

YABU. Don't Park on double yellow lines and don't swear at someone who had the decency to warn you in the first place. You should feel embarrassed. Hope you enjoyed your expensive fish and chips.

Shall we get onto the subject of leaving DCs in the illegally parked car to go into the chippy? grin

hobnobsaremyfave Tue 23-Oct-12 14:06:38

Oh and you left your DC's unattended while you got your lunch hmm . THis is like playing mumsnet bingo.

ChaoticismyLife Tue 23-Oct-12 14:07:22

A bit unreasonable hmm

OP if you want to see a fecking entitled bitch...take a look in the mirror.

WileyRoadRunner Tue 23-Oct-12 14:07:27

Expensive fish and chips.

picnicbasketcase Tue 23-Oct-12 14:07:29

Surely you know YABU. You knew you had parked illegally. Double yellow lines don't mean 'don't park here unless you'll only be three minutes in a chipshop'. You have no right at all to be pissed off.

ClippedPhoenix Tue 23-Oct-12 14:08:03

In all honesty I've been known to swear and jump up and down on a parking ticket blush But that was because I was towed and THEN had to pay a ticket on top.

She certainly sounds like a jobsworth, which is irritating in itself. But a "double yellow" line is strictly out of bounds as is a red route one.

CookieRookie Tue 23-Oct-12 14:08:15

...and you littered! shock

WileyRoadRunner Tue 23-Oct-12 14:08:16

Oh Toocber x post. I wanted to say that first. Hmph.

FrustratedSycamoreBonks Tue 23-Oct-12 14:08:33

Yabu biscuit

ThreadWatcher Tue 23-Oct-12 14:10:07

Why not just park legally - like you know you should?

I don't think the parking warden is the bitch.

ThatBloodyKnid Tue 23-Oct-12 14:10:28

YABU. Good for her for doing her job.
