I suspect I am dipping into the realms of the grumpy old women, and am fully prepared to he flamed, but..,,

We live in a small drive, dead end, allocated parking and extra spaces possibly on corners, grass, enough room for 5 or 6 cars outside of bays. Neighbour 2 doors up is going away on a bank holiday trip I think with around 10 friends who have just turned up and parked cars all over the drive. All space has been taken by these cars and the street looks jam packed, and they have all just got in a mini bus with trailer, suitcases etc and are going away. We are 200m from an empty street which all other streets lead from where visitors normally park as this road is so chocca

AIBU to think this us really selfish?

(Puts on fire proud suit and holds on to judgey pants) grin

Very selfish and un-neighbourly. I woukd spend the weekend mental,y plotting (but not actually doing anything)

If they've parked in other people's allocated parking then that's totally unreasonable. I'd be leaving angry notes on windscreens- oh and phone or email the local PCSO, they may well pop over or contact the neighbour. There will be a non emergency number or on line reporting system.

How inconsiderate, half pound of bird feed on each roof could you leave a sticky note on all of the windscreens.

Cunts. Key their cars.

Have they parked in other residents alloted spaces? Have they blocked any drives or access points? Have they done anything actually wrong or are you just one of those bored, curtain-twitcher types?

I would be fuming. How inconsiderate. Put sun cream hand prints on their cars. Apparently this never comes out of paint work and will drive them mad trying to buff them out

CSIJanner Sat 04-May-13 11:35:42

Have they parked and then left their cars to go on holiday? That would really get the proverbial goat

Whatalotofpiffle Sat 04-May-13 12:12:09

Mortified, no, they haven't blocked anywhere or parked in allocated spaces but have filled up the whole street, verges, corners, all grass, with cars then buggered off on holiday. I am not a bored curtain twitcher but there is now no space for anyone to park outside of bays, so no room for visitors, delivery trucks as the street is so tight, turning etc etc

Whatalotofpiffle Sat 04-May-13 12:14:09

Oh, actually, just looked out window and neighbour furious as there are 2 cars in allocated parking! He has just returned from work to find his space filled!

janey68 Sat 04-May-13 12:14:40

Ah right. Inconsiderate of the neighbour because she could have told her friends to park further away, knowing the street and that it makes deliveries etc tricky . But they are as entitled to park there as anyone else so im afraid there's nothing you can do really

Whatalotofpiffle Sat 04-May-13 12:14:42

Think boyfriend is home so may have a rant later ha ha

janey68 Sat 04-May-13 12:15:22

X posts there. Complain then if they are in allocated spaces

Sparklingbrook Sat 04-May-13 12:17:01

That's so inconsiderate. sad Get neighbour to go round.

Whatalotofpiffle Sat 04-May-13 12:18:48

Yeah I know there isn't, I'm just pissed off as this street is tight enough as it is and there are 5 abandoned vehicles around now turning it into a maze to get out of

I know IABU as they have done nothing illegal, but seriously, parking shit loads of cars where other people drive, park, kids play etc then going away..., grrrr

Got my goat, and yes, today I do feel like a grumpy old woman

Oh, and also, I have a few friends coming over later who will now have to park 200m away

Whatalotofpiffle Sat 04-May-13 12:20:53

Hope the cars in allocated spaces turn out not to be holiday cars or we may have street wars when they get back! Will have to see.., an not 100%

Whatalotofpiffle Sat 04-May-13 12:22:24

God, I do sound like a whinge bag but feel a bit better having a rant

Sparklingbrook Sat 04-May-13 12:23:10

I would feel the same what. other people being inconsiderate turns me into Victor Meldrew too.

EggsMichelle Sat 04-May-13 12:24:03

TigOldBitties Sat 04-May-13 12:24:39

Sparklingbrook Sat 04-May-13 12:25:49
