My next door neighbours drive is directly adjacent to ours. NDN's DS has his GF over and she sometimes parks a bit across our drive. This doesn't bother me as when I ask her to move it it gets moved.

Today I needed to go out (12noonish) so asked them to move the car. GF says it has broke down that it died last night. I said have you called the AA. Not yet I was told we have just got uphmm.

I said I needed out so can she get the car pushed to unblock the drive. She started faffing about umming and ahhing. I said to NDN DS that he could push it and joking told him to get his shoes on.

10 minutes later the car hadn't been moved so I popped into my other neighbour and asked if he and his DS could help push a car. They agreed. I then knocked on NDN door and the GF answered. I asked had they called the AA and told her the car needed moved. She hadn't called the AA as her was having breakfast and the BF was showering.

I say well it needs moved, jump in the driver's seat and we'll move it. I must admit I was a bit annoyed by this stage. Two minutes later the car was pushed to block NDN drive.

I then went out. When I came back there was a note from NDN's DS saying I can upset GF and needed to apologise.hmm

So was wibu to make her move the car and should I be apologising or would ibu to wait until NDN is back and have a word. Needless to say anytime the GF blocks the drive in the future I will be straight out even if we don't need out.

NDN's DS is 26 and GF is 25 with 3 kids.

McButtonwillow Sun 26-Feb-17 13:43:33

What! Yanbu at all- ignore, ignore, ignore.

Soubriquet Sun 26-Feb-17 13:43:46

Course yanbu

What was you supposed to do?

She was a bit daft to just shrug her shoulders in a "oh well. It will be sorted when it gets sorted" attitude

Why on earth doesn't she block NDNs drive?! Cheeky moo.

FrancisCrawford Sun 26-Feb-17 13:46:12

What a dozy bint.

Now you know what she is like, make sure she never parks over your drive again.

SomethingBorrowed Sun 26-Feb-17 13:48:12

YANBU
Are you in good terms with NDN?

LyndaLaHughes Sun 26-Feb-17 13:48:35

They are being completely unreasonable. Yes I'd have a word with NDN. Say you were most upset by the note given how reasonable you have been about never complaining about them blocking the drive in the past. Say given that the car has now broken down once and how difficult it was to get the car moved you do not want the car parked across your drive anymore. Say you really don't want to fall out about it but you are very disappointed that you are being painted as being in the wrong when you were in no way unreasonable and were being inconvenienced when you needed to leave.

SourBubblegum Sun 26-Feb-17 13:48:50

I'd return a note stating that you do not give permission for her to be blocking your perfectly legal driveway. She should not be parking there, and in future if it continues happening then you will start getting it towed away. I'm sure she will start parking across their drive in future. Cheek of them asking for you to apologise!

MadamePomfrey Sun 26-Feb-17 13:59:42

25 and they were getting up a noon??? Wow I wish I could sleep like that. They are completely in the wrong! Its illegal to block someone's car on a drive so you could have gone further! In future she should park blocking the drive of the people she's visiting like most people! I would wait for your neighbors to be home and speak to them not their man child. hopefully that way you will get some sense!!

RainbowJack Sun 26-Feb-17 14:01:46

Post a note saying "sure, after she apologises for blocking my drive".

Somehow I don't think an apology will be forthcoming.

ChocolateCakeandSprinkles Sun 26-Feb-17 14:02:50

Cheeky bint and him. Tell him in no uncertain terms that she is the one who should be apologising for inconveniencing you, and up till now you haven't moaned about her being across your drive but you no longer give permission and if it is across your legal drive again then you will report it!

leadrightfoot Sun 26-Feb-17 14:04:18

Send one back saying you are upset she felt it necessary to break the law by blocking you in, refusing to move her car nad being so unneighbourly and expect an apology, spoilt madam

leadrightfoot Sun 26-Feb-17 14:05:13

Oh and add you are upset with his passive agressive unneighbourly behaviour and expect an apology from him too. Spoilt brat

DelphineCormier Sun 26-Feb-17 14:30:34

Dear NDN DS girlfriend.,

Following your boyfriend's note, I understand I upset you earlier with my attitude and owe you an apology. Please accept my sincere apologies for daring to have a life which does not fit in nicely around your lying in until midday and leisurely routine. I also apologise for being so understanding about your blocking my drive in the past. In future, having seen that you are incapable of appreciating that with this privilege comes responsibility to move your car off my property when I need to get out, I will no longer be allowi ping my drive to be blocked in by your car. Please make alternative arrangements.

Regards, MrBluethecatt

Mrbluethecatt Sun 26-Feb-17 14:45:46

I popped out again and have returned to another note. Apparently the GF is leaving at 5pm so I should pop over before that to apologise.

Soubriquet Sun 26-Feb-17 14:48:07

I wouldnt! They are being incredibly cheeky

Allthebestnamesareused Sun 26-Feb-17 14:49:17

Is she leaving in her car grin?

Megatherium Sun 26-Feb-17 14:50:34

Leave a note asking when she plans to apologise for blocking your drive.

CaptainHammer Sun 26-Feb-17 14:57:39

No way do you need to apologise!

DoveBlue Sun 26-Feb-17 14:58:37

Wow! I would give both a wide berth in future they are living on another planet. You helped them get the car moved without getting arsey yet you upset her! YADNBU!

DartmoorDoughnut Sun 26-Feb-17 14:59:46

WTAF??! Cheeky fuckers!

CoffeeCoffeeAndLotsOfIt Sun 26-Feb-17 15:01:54

Dear god! She's a mother and is acting like a spoilt child. Her poor children.

Ignore them. The pair of them sound deluded!

Grilledaubergines Sun 26-Feb-17 15:02:30

Knock on the door and have it out with her. Silly woman, hiding behind her boyfriend.
