My neighbour said my parking disrespected him – am I being unreasonable?


A WOMAN has taken to the internet to vent her frustration with her neighbour.

Despite making an effort to park sensibly when moving her car from her drive to the street a neighbour was quick to pull her up on it.

The post on Mumsnet said: “Not sure what to think of this. My partner and I moved into a new neighbourhood a few weeks ago. It’s a fairly affluent area, with detached houses etc.

“Anyway, we had visitors over the weekend staying for two days, and my partner wanted to move our car so the visitors could park on the drive.

“He parked the car on the street opposite. Wasn’t blocking anyone’s drive, or parked in an illegal or obstructive way. He parked it there Friday lunchtime.

“Saturday evening neighbour we’ve never met came knocking on the door, and without introducing himself just started having a go at us for parking our car there.

“He didn’t ask us to move it or explain why it bothered him – just immediately started ranting that we’re ‘disrespecting our neighbours’ and ‘we don’t give a s**t’.

“We said we haven’t done anything wrong, it’s legal to park on any road as long as it’s not blocking a driveway.

“He accepted it’s not illegal but it’s not acceptable anyway. Said we ‘should have realised’ it would upset him!”

The woman added: “My partner then said sorry I’ll move it, I didn’t mean to upset you and we’d like to keep good relations with you.

“The guy just kept having a go, and eventually went ‘well you have upset me, welcome to the neighbourhood’ and stormed off.

“I’m not being unreasonable here, right? Would you go and have a go at your neighbours for parking a car outside your house for a couple of days?

“I keep overthinking it, is it rude to park outside someone’s house?”
