At about 1:30 today I parked my work's Transit in front of the neighbour's house, for the first time in the six weeks I've been getting the van home. Normally I put it down our drive out of the way at weekends but not this time. Apart from the van we have two cars
At 4:00 I came back from the park on foot with Richard Jr to be met by an irate neighbour asking me to park in front of my own house and lecturing me about common courtesy. There is no shortage of parking in our street and he didn't have visitors so this was purely about him having to look at my van.
The offending van is on the right. Does the neighbour have a point? Am I wrong to be incandescent about this? It's being lectured on common courtesy that rankles the most. I don't think I have ever even parked in front of his house before.
Does anybody else have a wanker living next door?

Seconded. Life's too short to waste time and oxygen on people like that.
The problem with tossers like this and their petty grievances is that things get out of hand pretty fast. Better off just laughing at him and walking off...

The Courier van is my father in law's but it was only there for the afternoon. We have two cars in the drive, there is rarely more than one of our vehicles in the street and I usually put all three up the drive at weekends. There isn't anywhere out of sight that I can park it.
As I say it was the lecturing way he complained that annoyed me. A simple "how long is that van going to be there?" would have sufficed. I've no intention of letting things get out of hand. Somebody else will land one on him one day, without the need for me to get myself in trouble.

Imagine if someone parked this outside his window
And, it's not even a tatty van.

He said that a compromise needed to be reached, yet refused to compromise at all....It got to the point where I was afraid to go outside and wash/work on my car, in case I saw him, because if I did I was overcome by the urge to RIP HIS FUGGIN' HEAD OFF....He frequently parked his works van in awkward positions just to annoy us, and my wife was often reduced to tears over it all.
Needless to say, we moved....
It's best not to let stuff like this escalate (as I did)....If You can park all of your vehicles on your own property, try to do so, then everybody else can go to hell!
Generally, I find that the world is full of NASTY, UGLY people....It's a sad fact of life....Maybe that's why I love animals so much!

I did teh honorouble thing and gravelled over my lawn, so at one point had a selection of British and French tin and a Swift Caravan out the front - but nothing on the road.... Did my neighbours appreciate this? No the cnuts didn't and complained to the fugging council about the state of my front garden as it was "lowering the tone and house prices".FFS we live opposite a Victorian Cotton Mill that has gone all "little industrial units" how the fugg can having a Swift Corvette and partially dismembered BX possibly lower the tone any more?
