Every bugger that seems to visit our road for whatever reason seems to park over my drive - why?

Im expecting someone to come over to look at my car door and although Im parked on the drive I would expect him to park over my drive. Only someone else has come along and parked over it therefore stopping me getting off and preventing my visitor from parking there. RANT!

Nobody does park over mind but it would drive me insane if they did.

I dont even know where the offender has gone so cant knock on any doors.

I will put snotty note on his/her windscreen

I go mad I really hate it! We have childminders on the street and the parents often do this when picking up and dropping off - the CM's ask them not to, and I appreciate its not their fault but it does annoy me
I go out and catch them - they are usually embarrassed enough not to do it again, though one father once told me to P* off, (infront of his child!) and mind my own business, cheeky sod!

they are only allowed to park over a drive if there's no car in it, otherwise I thought it was illegal and you could get them towed?

We have a teacher next door who does after school private tuition, three or four kids at a time, and there is always one of the parents parked across our drive. Sometimes I have to go and and tell them off because not only do they park *across" the drive, some of them actually park on it because their precious offspring can't possibly walk for 20 feet to where the nearest available parking space might be.

The same woman has a very wide drive, they can get 5 cars on it at any one time, yet her private visitors always, without fail, park across my drive, which is a single car width.

Drives me mad, too.

actually i notice that the sun roof is open so will pop it through there

What really bugs me is that half the time there's no-one else parked anywhere on the street - and they still have to park across my drive.

you could pop something else thru the sunroof too, if you are feeling really naughty

jampots Fri 06-May-05 12:55:11

tilly - you are like an devil sitting on my shoulder urging me on. do you not know I need no encouragement to be mischeivous ?

sweetmonkey Fri 06-May-05 12:56:40

I'd key the bloody thing next time...

Nemo1977 Fri 06-May-05 12:59:14

oo i hate that silly people especisally those who deny access to ur own

moondog Fri 06-May-05 12:59:34

Good rule-always have a crap car so that if necessary, you can vandalise cars of people who have pissed you off over parking issues with gay abandon!!

Janh Fri 06-May-05 13:01:39

does your drive have a white line across the end, jampots?

SoupDragon Fri 06-May-05 13:05:08

Pop something through the sunroof with a note saying "I would have taken this to the dump had I been able to get my car out of my driveway"

norash40 Fri 06-May-05 13:05:09

someone pass me a gun! I have terrorised so many people on my road for doing this they don't do it anymore.

Last time someone did they almost ended up with wet interiors, next time it will not be just water . The time before that I put a note on there windscreen using double sided carpet tape ( I would like to know how they got that out. )

Honestly I don't know how people can be soooooooo inconsiderate.

jampots Fri 06-May-05 13:10:13

no I dont Jan - why?

Janh Fri 06-May-05 13:13:45

That will be why people feel they can park there - if you had a white line you could call the police to them. You can get one painted but you have to pay. (I think that's right anyway, based on the behaviour of an obsessive old man who lives near our primary school!)

JoolsToo Fri 06-May-05 13:15:40

Twiglet - that's what I though too!

sorry girls but I bet its a woman! (I'll eat my hat if it isn't - honest )

swiperfox Fri 06-May-05 13:22:50

Good job you dont live in our house!! We haven't got a drive and its a really old street so the pavementis about a foot wide so all the cars that park outside our house are right bang in front of our window - drives me mad !!
