My first parking thread!

So, I'm off work on annual leave with DS. Just been out for the day and just got home to find that it's school run time. We live near a first school so obviously the streets are lined with cars. Someone has parked on my drive and someone else is blocking them in!
Now I imagine that as no one is ever here during the day, these people have been doing this for some time (we've only lived here 3 months and the house was emtpy for a year before that). I've squeezed in beside the car blocking the drive so they won't be able to get our (remember the scene from Friends with Ross's sports car?) and therefore the car on my drive can't escape either.
AIBU to just sit here with a cuppa and watch this all play out while pretending not to be in?

Could you and neighbour swap your cars? So then you have moved your car, but CF still cannot get out ...

CisMyArse · 16/06/2018 10:29

Mummyoflittledragon · 16/06/2018 10:47

Is op sitting there with binoculars and twitching the curtains?

WickedGirl · 16/06/2018 10:53

Have any cars been moved?

Eliza9917 · 16/06/2018 10:56

Maybe they think they'll play op at her own game and come to collect so she has to stay in to get the satisfaction of making them apologise.

Maybe they are watching from afar for op to go out?

Eliza9917 · 16/06/2018 10:57

*not come to collect

Oddcat · 16/06/2018 11:06

Eliza it's a standoff ! Whose nerve will hold out longest ?

I'm hoping this isn't a wind up. Will be gutted.

Jimmers · 16/06/2018 11:19

I do hope OP & DP have gone out in his car... Or maybe developed severe D&V so they can’t possibly risk leaving the house for even a moment...

Wonder if one of the CFs will snap & fart Grin

jellycat1 · 16/06/2018 11:19

notsodimwit · 16/06/2018 11:25

OldHag1 · 16/06/2018 11:28
