My Second Parking Thread

* [MNHQ link to first thread here- My first parking thread ]

Well, it is now 11:14 and I have very rudely not updated you all!!

It's quite fun I must say.

So, by some twist of fate 'someone' let the air out of one of DH's tires last night. Was full and plump last night, this morning it looked like it had melted. Funny coincidence.
However DH had parked up just behind me, any further back and he would have been encroaching on our other neighbours drive.
So 10:05 rolls around and there is a knock on the door- just the menfolk this time, asking me to shift my car.

Well unfortunatley I am not able to due to the flat tire DH has and I am now blocked in too. Darn. I explain to the menfolk what's happened and instantly I can tell by their faces it was them (or one of the others) who let the tire down. I've explained that someone is coming out to replace the tire later than day and slipped in the conversation that we have motion sensor dash cams in both cars so will of course be turned over the footage to the police.

I'll be honest with you, I could have gotten my car out at this point, but it would have been a lot of shimmying back and forth and I actually couldnt really be bothered with all that.

One of the men tells me that this has gotten well out of hand and if he offers to sort the tire out now, can we please shift and he assures me that they will never park on our property again.

I said absolutely (I don't want to appear unreasonable!), However I must insist on an apology from the driver who felt the need to park on my drive way and the driver who blocked them in.

You'll be pleased to know that have now received apologies from two very sheepish looking women (along with a lengthy explanation as to why they parked there) and DH has a lovely new bouncy tire.

Before leaving one of the menfolk asking if we could please delete the footage from the dash cam. He thinks the culprit was just having a bad day and made a bad decision. Bless.

Awesome way to end!! Well done for waiting for the apology! They will hopefully think twice before being such cf's again!

What utter pricks!!!!

Nice result. Apology received and it sounds like they've had a chance too cool down and realise they were in the wrong.

devoncreamtea Sat 16-Jun-18 11:34:55

Well done!!!!

TheMonkeyMummy Sat 16-Jun-18 11:34:55

I would still send the footage to the school, and let them know what their parents are up to!

What was their lengthy explanations as to why they had to park on your drive?

Groovee Sat 16-Jun-18 11:35:01

I need to know what sheepish story they told! But yay for the update x

GrapesAreMyJam Sat 16-Jun-18 11:35:04

Yay! Great update. What was the explanation for parking on your driveway?

AlpacaLypse Sat 16-Jun-18 11:35:07

I've done the link for you from your first thread. Bravo OP and OP's DH!

Whowouldfardelsbear Sat 16-Jun-18 11:35:10

What a pair of numpties, immobilising the car behind you that would need moving in order for you to move your car!

I love that they let your DH tyres down and it bit them on the ass.

I send you, DH and neighbour flowers wine gin cake and award you all
