Was going to take my friend to my local garage to look at his car this morning and came out to find some tit in a Golf had boxed him, as well as parking in front of a dropped kerb. You can't see it from the pictures but there is a car parked perfectly legally behind my friends car so he can't reverse out and the space in front of him should be clear as it is a dropped kerb.

 

Now I know what I would do if that was my car. I'm thinking Beverly Hills Cop:

Tyres mysteriously deflated and whatever gunk I can find poured all over the car.

What would you do?

I had this before, first thing I did was to do a 50 point manouvre to get out of the space. I then parked up in front of him, and left an aggrieved note on his window telling him he cant park, and that he should be grateful I am a careful driver. I then followed the note by saying "do it again, and I wont be as careful getting my car out". I just happen to know that 4 screws "magically" appeared, one under each wheel, resting against the floor and tip against his tyre... I couldnt imagine who put them there!

 

I also seem to remember someone applied white label stickers across his windscreen, and his rear window. I dont recall having anything to do with that, but I believe he boxed someone in front of him in exactly the same as he boxed me behind, so I can only assume this other party may have been responsible for both acts...

A few months back the drains from my house to the street became blocked so I called the water company to tell them that the manhole cover was being forced up by the back pressure and that 'floaters' had started to seep out (yea, you can see where this is going!). On arrival, the 'dump truck' (not sure its actually called that, but you know what I mean) couldn't get at the manhole cover as some tit had parked a Renault Laguna directly over it. The water company 'dump truck' was going to drive off as they couldn't get at the drain, so I asked some lads on the building site opposite if they'd help bump the back of the Laguna out of the way, just enough to reveal the drain cover. The water company then started in with the high pressure hoses and, how very unfortunate, the Laguna was accidentally covered, in err  . . .  confusion! Job done  - or, perhaps that should be 'jobbie' done?!

That's standard where I live.
If you can walk between the cars then you've wasted space :P

That really gets on my nerves, if there isn't enough space then naff off and park somewhere else.

Hehe yeah, I left a very explicit note on the car, was so incredibly annoying, I got up early as well to help my friend as he just passed his test and had no idea where the garage was, so was going to follow me. Everyone knows how hard it is to get a decent slot in a good garage, so when you have to cancel for stupid reasons like this, can be awhile before you get another slot.

 

If I had a bucket of poo I'd have lathered up that golf  lolol.

I just dont understand some people.

 

Once I parked in a gap between 2 cars, this was in my fiesta, and there was about an inch of space between us. I parked there as there was no space anywhere, but as the police where around (another ongoing incident) I sat watching the car in case anyone needed to move (this was at midnight!) .

 

Long story short, an hour later someone was off to work (not the car immediately next to me, so I moved the car out the tight gap and parked in the appropriate space.

 

Thats just me, I just wish other people would show a tiny amount of respect, or decency.

 

I couldnt have just dumped my car and left it like that, but maybe I am the odd one out!

I would have bumped the car into the middle of the road and left it there (with some help of course). Alternatively put a trolly jack under it and drag it out one end at a time.

A can of cavity foam in the exhaust is a guaranteed annoyance, not that I'm advocating it of course :D

This type of parking is really annoying.

 

What is also annoying is people who leave gaps as large as 2 meters or longer when parking at the front/end of street bays. 

 

Very inconsiderate.

 

The Beverly Hills Cop thing made me chuckle btw, legendary.  :)

I realy don't know what you're complaining about there's loads of space to get out there! :P need to learn how to drive ;) lol it is annoying when people aren't considerate enough to leave enough space for you to easily maneuver out instead of having to struggle though
