In Sainsbury's car park. I've just parked in front of this Mini so they can't leave before I've said my piece shock

You don’t know their shit, they might be having the day from hell and don’t need someone having a go.
Take a deep breath.
Leave it, park elsewhere.

Why does it matter so much to you ?

Honestly find something else to do?

No they haven’t parked great but I just couldn’t be bothered, it’s not like they’ve drowned a puppy!

Take a deep breath and do your shopping and leave...why look for argument's when it doesn't involve you? If it really bothers you tell the shop...

Chill, really.

ThePinkOcelot Wed 24-Jan-18 12:33:44

Eh?! You got nothing else to do?!

rabbit12345 Wed 24-Jan-18 12:33:49

Really? It doesn’t look particularly busy. Why do you need urgently talking down?

cookiedough1 Wed 24-Jan-18 12:33:56

Why would you?

Just go park your car and carry on with your day fgs.

SparkleFizz Wed 24-Jan-18 12:34:04

Is this because they’ve parked badly?

Annoying, but it’s not really worth a showdown surely? Anyone parking in the next space will still have more room than if they were in a standard space.

Let it go, not worth raising your blood pressure over. There will always be twats in the world and people who can't park. Don't get riled, save your battles.

OP let the little things go. You're wasting your day to talk to a stranger about their parking.

EggsonHeads Wed 24-Jan-18 12:34:15

It's extra funny because it's a mini. I can't help but wonder though whether there may have been two cars parked in those bays and they squeezed in between them like some sort of parking savage.

Nicknacky Wed 24-Jan-18 12:34:20

Did you forget to put "light hearted" in your heading?

Hogtini Wed 24-Jan-18 12:34:36

Get a life

FFS. What's it got to do with you? You sound like an arsehole.

BishopBrennansArse Wed 24-Jan-18 12:35:48

Hope you get a ticket for obstructive parking, then.

buddhasbelly Wed 24-Jan-18 12:35:56

Maybe use the time you'd spend talking to the stranger to think of a hobby you might like to do.

VladmirsPoutine Wed 24-Jan-18 12:36:14

'Talk you down'.... really? How about I talk you into getting a grip.

GreenSeededGrape Wed 24-Jan-18 12:36:46

I càn see two other spaces confused

SoupDragon Wed 24-Jan-18 12:39:05

Do you know how the cars were parked either side before you arrived?

OracleofDelphi Wed 24-Jan-18 12:40:09

Wow...... rule for life... try hard not to fight with strangers..... Really if that was the only space in the whole car park I can understand you rolling your eyes as you drove past. But I couldnt ever get that upset about it to post on the internet and block someone in??? shock.... And Im quite a rage-y person!

Move on and save your fight for when you need it.

SoupDragon Wed 24-Jan-18 12:40:41

Why are you parcking like a twat and causing an obstruction so that you can launch into a moral tirade at someone who is not causing an obstruction?
