To have phoned up about the van parked outside my house?

I expect I'll be told yes but I've done it anyway .
I got home from the school run to find a insulation company van parked on the road outside my house (we only have street parking.) They've left a gap between the van & my neighbours car but it's not quite big enough to fit my car in. Nobody with the van and no idea which house they're at. I've had to park across the road and carry dd4 and a little bit of shopping. Not the end of the world, I know but I hate inconsiderate parking
(I was very polite by the way when I rang the office).

OMG I can only assume you live in the country? I only have street parking and I consider myself lucky if I get to park outside my house. I often have to traispe up and down the hill carrying a hundred quid's worth of shopping as well as dealing with my two year old and his three siblings.
So YES. YABU. You don't know how good you've got it.

Can I recommend you buy some of these and keep them around for such occasions. I have bought some and I've been sending them out to friends in Christmas cards. They're very funny. They have check boxes inside with things like 'Too stupid to drive' or 'inventing a parking space' or ''driving like a maniac' etc.

you don't own the parkin space in front of your house if it's street parkin anyway he pays his road tax just as you do so has as much right to park on there as you do.
And yes i only havce onstreet parkin and am often parked 2 streets away parkin on the street is a luxury.

Could be worse tho' - our estate had all the gas mains replaced a while ago & they dug up part of the path & dumped all the detritis in front of our neighbour's drive, blocking in their car. She called the company headquarters & very calmly informed them that her baby was due that day & they'd better get it unblocked ASAP.
'twas a good job she did too as she went into labour an hour after it was cleared
