Arrived home from work to find a car parked on my drive. Thought it might be one of dh's friends but no.

Our drive can fit two cars but the bastard has decided to park at the front of the drive so no chance of parking on the drive and blocking them in like I would like to.

It's making me irrationally angry and I can't stop checking to see if it's gone. Dh doesn't seem to share my annoyance.

Why would anyone decide it's ok to park on someone's drive?!

Can't you park over the dropped kerb to trap him in?

What morecoffeenow said. Only way you can interrogate and humiliate the perpetrator!

Ooooh a parking thread! Great!

Park across the end of the drive

Block the drive with your car, cheeky gits. Honestly the nerve of some people. It just wouldn't even occur to me to park on a stranger's private driveway shock

Because they are cunty twats, that's why they are parked like county twats.

We're at the end of the road with our garage and drive in front of the house. The way the road is laid out I can't block him in with him parked at the front of the drive without blocking in a few of my neighbours too.

I am currently sat on the sofa with eyes on the car in case they come back.

Park over the dropped kerb and block them in that way? Why do people seem to think this is an okay thing to do?

CupcakesRule Thu 25-Aug-16 18:22:23

I also think you need to block him in.

I would never have the nerve to park on someone else's drive! 😮

Cheeky buggers
Park across the drive, block them in

Park in front of the drive and leave a note.

Mreva Thu 25-Aug-16 18:23:06

At least some people agree that this person is a twat grin Dh is just looking at me like hmm

I would be angry, too, but I'm in the US, and I think things might be different here than there. Or at least that's what I've gleaned on these parking threads. My driveway is my property, and if someone parked on it without my permission, I'd be within my rights to have them towed. I'd be shocked if that ever happened, though, because it's just not the done thing here. I would never feel justified in parking on someone's driveway unless I was there to visit that person.

Speak to your neighbours and ask if it would be OK to block them in for a bit.

blueskyinmarch Thu 25-Aug-16 18:23:14

Just cross posted with OP and see you can’t block them in. Bummer!

PixieMiss Thu 25-Aug-16 18:23:29

Would they come in your house and use your toilet or take a biscuit out of your cupboard? No because it is your property!

Why isn't your drive any different?!

NatalieRushman Thu 25-Aug-16 18:23:38

Don't let him escape when you take your eyes off the car. They always seem to escape.

Waltermittythesequel Thu 25-Aug-16 18:23:44

Can you park behind him, slightly out on the path?

Nicnak2223 Thu 25-Aug-16 18:24:22

I've never known this happen in real life but it happens all the time on mn! I can't believe someone would be so cheeky, any chance they didn't realise?
