taxi4ballet Posted February 8, 2013 Share Posted February 8, 2013 We live in a small cul-de-sac with about 12 houses, and although most other people have both a garage and a drive, we have neither, so I park by the kerb outside my house. It has always been a tight squeeze for all the residents to get their cars parked. There is literally no room left. A lot of them have two cars and a garage full of barbecues, bikes and assorted household junk, so don't use them and park in the road outside their house like I do. The arrangements have always worked ok for decades because we all make allowances for one another, and have our own mutually-agreed spots. Until this week... when someone has moved in and decided to park outside my house in my spot (I've parked there every day for 27 years, and my car is even on Google Earth - IT'S MY SPACE!!!) His car is so big it won't fit into the space in front of his house, or so he says. He has a garage round the back of his house but won't use it, even when we've explained the mutual agreement between all the other people living here. He says "It's a free country, and I can park where I damn well like!" Normally I wouldn't make a fuss, but it means I have to use my next-door neighbour's place (she is a nurse and works shifts, so I don't want her coming home at 2am and not being able to park) or I have to block someone else's car in, which makes it look like it's me being the trouble-making nuisance. Today, my husband went to fill my car up with petrol, and in the 5 minutes he was gone, this bloke deliberately moved his car from the space outside his own house and into mine! What can I do? I take my dd to dance classes every evening and we don't get home till after 10pm, and I can see him pinching the space on purpose every time now just to be aggravating! Help!!! How can I persuade this bloke to co-operate with everyone else and not be such a total pig? AAARRRGGGHHH!!!!!! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
