Does parking on a closed road count as a live parking thread? 😁

So they have closed the road I live on to resurface it. It will be closed for the next two nights. We’ve had multiple letters from the council, there have been signs up for at least a month and yesterday they painted NO PARKING THURSDAY AND FRIDAY all over the road.

8 cars are still parked there with 15 minutes to go until resurfacing begins. One of the cars is right outside my house and when I saw them out the window, I tried to explain to the two women (looking like they were off for an evening in town) that they were probably not going to be able to get their car until morning but they told me to fuck off!

The road is lorry central, a guy is taking pictures of the remaining cars… it’s all go here.

Anyone know what they do? Do they just resurface round the cars? Tow them away? Do they get brutal? There’s a fair few annoyed looking men in hi-vis walking up and down! Should I get wine and a comfy viewing position?

😉

Can’t believe I missed such an epic thread at the time.

Also an H Towner here (and glad that most of the roadworks seem to be over as at one point it felt like I couldn’t get to anywhere in town without getting stuck at temporary traffic lights😠).

Just found this from a round up email from MNHQ

Read it on the settee with a glass on Baileys (boxing day collapse after a very busy Xmas day yesterday).

Well do OP and all the commentators - excellent fun and a well deserved move to Classics

👏👏👏👏👏👏

How exciting. I'd love to know if they towed the cars especially rude lady's car.

Well, I don't want to post spoilers but if you read the thread you'd find out.

Brilliant thread. Cant believe I missed it at the time 😂

Do zombie thread rules apply in Classics?? Surely not 🤔

This is a great thread, so glad to find it. My life is currently devoid of any joy whatsoever, but @DailyMaui's posts and pictures have made me smile for the first time in ages. Thank you.

There has been such a dearth of good parking threads recently that it's lovely to have this old one to fall back on (it's been in my saved threads the whole time).
