To be annoyed at CF parking

Gotten home from school drop off and a bit of shopping to find an unknown white van parked on the drive outside my house. No sign of anyone anywhere, loads of public places to park. It’s been there an hour now. I am tempted to block him in but don’t want to wake the baby if they return banging the door down. AIBU for being pissed off - WWYD?

Give it a nudge. Might set the alarm off.

I would block them in and put a note on the windshield. If you're worried about them banging on the door, why not say in the note that you have gone out and they can call you to arrange for you to move your car.

I would try to set off their alarm too.

Yep, block him in

What will setting off the alarm achieve other than annoy everyone in the vicinity and keep the baby awake.

I would block him in and leave a note saying you'll be back this evening.

Block him and AND set the alarm off.

Block him in for sure, then don't be around to answer the door!

theworstwife Fri 17-Jan-20 11:30:59

I can’t understand why they have parked there at all, all a bit odd. Once the baby is down for a nap if they’re still there I might write a note and block them in

block them in!

Whynosnowyet Fri 17-Jan-20 11:31:36

Deemail do you not check your car if you hear it's alarm?

theworstwife Fri 17-Jan-20 11:31:53

I will have to go out anyway for pick up about 2.30pm so couldn’t black him in for long.

I wonder if they’ve mistaken your drive for a neighbours? Unless it’s really obvious that it’s not.

theworstwife Fri 17-Jan-20 11:33:55

It don’t think it’s the neighbours as they aren’t in and there are 2 spaces free on their drive. I haven’t seen any sign of any work men or anything. We are in a village with nothing near us to travel for. There’s a small train station but there are lots of closer places to park

I’d block them in. Their own fault for thinking they could park on your property!

Shove a potato up the exhaust pipe. It will stop him from being able to start his van and he'll never work out what's wrong with it. He'll have to get it towed.

I don't mean this to sound like I have actually done this to a CF who persistently blocked my access. No. I would never do something terrible like that. grin

Umm, could we have a photo please?

BlackBlueBell Fri 17-Jan-20 11:38:19

Just block them in, I don’t know what setting off the alarm would do other than annoy you.
Does anyone even know what their own car alarm sounds like?

Feminazgul Fri 17-Jan-20 11:38:35

Yes, you are being totally unreasonable... hmm

theworstwife Fri 17-Jan-20 11:38:58

Our drive is obviously ours as it goes around the front and to the side of our house - they’ve parked at the front outside my front door

jessycake Fri 17-Jan-20 11:40:17

look up the reg to see if its taxed and insured

theworstwife Fri 17-Jan-20 11:40:50

I guess the unreasonableness is how annoyed I am despite it not really inconveniencing me - I could still park down the side of the house. My DH thinks I would be unreasonable to block them in

theworstwife Fri 17-Jan-20 11:41:28

He’s not here though

AlpacaGoodnight Fri 17-Jan-20 11:43:44

I would block in

This is them, with a lovey reflection of my cat
