Hello today I went out with DDS and some friends. I parked my car and was about to go in to eat when some idiot tried to park next to me. I asked her politely to unroll her window and move as she was tailgating and too close to my car far my liking. She moved but was huffing and puffing and sighing and complained before finally giving in. Aibu to think she was acting immature and rude as she messed up my schedule so DD and my friends had to run ahead to reserve a table without me when I wanted us all to sit together.

She was tailgating? So behind you?

Don't understand the issue...

TRexingInAsda Fri 17-Jul-15 21:26:19

You WBU.

Was she not parked within the lines of a marked parking bay?

Is this a reverse?

How do you tailgate a parked car?

It was you. You were rude and precious. She gave in to avoid arguing.

Someone wanted to park next to you and you thought they were being unreasonable? I don't understand. If there was a space marked next to you what was the problem?

Huh? So you were late because you hung around to complain that she was tailgating your stationary car? confused

Even if your irritation was valid, how late can that really have made you?

Some people really do live in completely different worlds to me.

I simply don't understand. Please elaborate.

Very confused..tailgating a parked car..

Hygge Fri 17-Jul-15 21:32:28

Just from that, it sounds like you were unreasonable.

How was she tailgating if you were already parked and she was parking next to you?

And why did your friends not reserve a table that had space for you all?

I don't get what your schedule has to do with it, you were the one asking her to move. Were you in a proper car par with proper spaces? What were you going to do if someone else parked in the space next to yours?

Either this is a reverse, I haven't read it properly or you are supremely unreasonable, and entitled.

BitchPeas Fri 17-Jul-15 21:32:40

Did you both start to park at the same time in spaces next to each other and her car was coming too close to yours?

fastdaytears Fri 17-Jul-15 21:32:47

Hang on, was the delay because you read the Highway Code cover to cover to try to find out what tailgate actually means?

IFinishedTheBiscuits Fri 17-Jul-15 21:35:19

The "missed up your schedule" thing makes me think either you WBU, or it was you who held up someone else and you think they were being unreasonable by getting annoyed.

Explain again OP.

ijustwannadance Fri 17-Jul-15 21:35:43

If your friends had ran ahead to reserve a table surely you wouldn't have been waiting any longer to eat than if you had ran with them and you still would have sat together? Surely it only took a couple of mins to ask woman to move. YADefinatlyBU

First she was tailgating me she was driving behind me far too closely then she parked her car too close to mine.

ilovesooty Fri 17-Jul-15 21:36:30

Still bizarre.

May I suggest you get out more often?
