There is a strange car parked in front of my house

Literally facing into my lounge, my private parking area not on street. I’ve no idea who it belongs too, must’ve arrived whilst I was putting the baby to bed so in the last 15 minutes. Doesn’t belong to any of my neighbours that I’m aware of (been here a long time, know most of them well). I think it’s cheeky to leave your car on a random parking spot or Aibu?

If it’s your privately owned parking space how could
It not be cheeky?

They probably don't realise it's a private drive. If it looks a bit like a road.

<retrieves popcorn from other parking thread>

Do you have a golf club near you, OP? grin

Or a riding hat?

Definitely doesn’t look like a road Ophelia, definitely private drive to front of my house, similar to the others on my very suburban estate.

No yawning, not seen the other thread, off to check it out now though!

Oh, it’s not a white polo is it 😂😂

Did a nice doctor live in your house previously?

Ginkypig Sat 26-May-18 19:46:23

On a serious note though is it in your designated spot or just in the spot you normally use?

If it's the second one then it's not actually yours so you'll just have to wait until they go while silently seething

You need a Penguin Bollard!

Ginkypig Sat 26-May-18 19:47:58

Sorry crosspost. As the other thread said penguin bollard will stop future cf's!

Come on, you know about 100 posters will be along telling you to block it in so off you go, move your car/OH's car/nice friend or neighbour's car to block it in 😂

We need a diagram...

Pool? Pimms? Where am I? I feel mysteriously like I just teleported in from another thread! grin

Ownerofalittlechimp Sat 26-May-18 19:53:24

I’m working on a diagram now, I know the rules 😆

Ownerofalittlechimp Sat 26-May-18 20:08:27

Here you go, sorry for the colours, could only find kids felt tips

Ownerofalittlechimp Sat 26-May-18 20:09:49

Ok that didn’t work, how do I add a pic?

Ownerofalittlechimp Sat 26-May-18 20:10:08

Never mind it did, sorry

Park across the entrance and wait to see what happens

MumofBoysx2 Sat 26-May-18 20:15:02

Yeah, go out, then block them in when you get back.

UnimaginativeUsername Sat 26-May-18 20:15:12

Park your DH’s car on the road, blocking it in.

MountainHedgehog Sat 26-May-18 20:15:48

CF. You have to park in the pavement and block them in. It’s MN law

onalongsabbatical Sat 26-May-18 20:16:39

Colours are fine. But what do the pink diagonals designate exactly, is it all hardcore parking? If not, why's the dropped kerb not aligned with the parking area?

Theweasleytwins Sat 26-May-18 20:16:45

Do you have anyone willing to read a book outside to keep an eye on the car?

Supermagicsmile Sat 26-May-18 20:17:04

Go and block them in!!!
