This woman lives behind a popular station where cars often park on her road to commute to work or pick up people from the station. This has caused limited parking, leading some people to park illegally across driveways or on double yellow lines.
Before the lockdown, a woman had taken to parking on the woman’s private driveway while she waited for her friend. The driveway was obviously part of the woman’s garden, but it was directly behind the station. Each time she parked there, the woman had asked her not to, explaining that they needed their parking space and that it was their private property.
The woman would tell her that she wouldn’t be long and would normally be gone after 10 minutes. The woman had caught her doing this three times and had seen her on their security system 11 times.
She Was Waiting
One day, the woman left in the car to pick up her daughter from nursery. When she returned, the woman was waiting for her friend in her driveway. The woman flashed her headlights, but the woman indicated that she would be a few minutes.
The woman’s three-year-old daughter needed to pee badly, and her seven-month-old was crying and needed to be held. The woman pulled up across the front of her driveway, got the kids out of the car, and went into the house. As the woman realized what was happening, she opened her car door and asked the woman who owned the house to move her car. The woman ignored her and went into the house.
The woman’s three-year-old daughter made it to the toilet just in time, and the baby calmed down after a cuddle. By now, the woman’s friend had arrived, and she honked her horn so that the woman who owned the house would move her car. The woman ignored her, called her husband, and told him what had happened. He said he was 15 minutes away and would move the car when he got back.
The woman came to the door, knocking loudly and asking the woman to move her car. The woman told her via the kitchen window that she would need to wait 15 minutes because she wasn’t putting the kids back in the car to move it, and she shouldn’t have parked on her driveway.
A Bit of a Jerk
The woman was a bit of condescending in the way she spoke to the woman, but she didn’t swear and wasn’t blatantly rude. However, she was a bit of a jerk. The woman lost her mind, swore, and hit the door. It was locked, and she couldn’t get in.
The woman told her to calm down as she was upsetting her kids. The other woman said she was calling the police, and the woman said to go ahead, but with everything that was going on, it was a waste of their time. Plus, she had a security camera that would show that she had asked her to move, plus the other times she parked there. The husband arrived 20 minutes later and moved the car so that the woman could leave.
The woman’s experience highlights the challenges of parking in a crowded urban area, especially when it comes to private property. While the other woman who parked on her driveway was clearly in the wrong, the woman’s decision to block her car in was not the best course of action. It put her in a difficult situation, where her children needed to use the bathroom and be comforted, and she couldn’t move her car without putting them back in.
The woman’s response to the person parking in her drive was condescending, but it was understandable given the stress of the situation. However, it is important to remember that being rude or aggressive towards someone, even if they are in the wrong, can escalate the situation and make it worse.
The Internet Responded
This commenter wrote, “If you’re in the UK i think what you did was technically illegal. Get one of those lockable parking bollards for your drive and stop her from parking there. Or put up a sign charging for parking, say £100 flat fee unless pre arranged with the owner, when she doesn’t pay take her through small claims court every time. She’ll be forced to pay.”
Another Comment from the Internet
Another supporter commented, “No more Mr Nice Guy on this one – from now on if she parks in your drive, she’s getting towed. You’ve been more than patient on this and she’s shown she clearly doesn’t give a hoot about inconveniencing you.”
