I live on a street of terraced houses which front pretty much straight onto the pavement, hence no driveways or such. Between the pavement and the road is an area for parking - it's not massive, but I can fit my car (a Passat) sticking a little bit out each side at about 45 degrees. Directly outside my house is a big parking area, between a couple of trees where you can easily fit 5 or 6 cars, if everyone parks at the same angle and a sensible distance apart.
Tonight I returned home to find a motorhome (nothing massive, big van sized) and an Astra - a f**king ASTRA - both parked at such an angle and such a distance apart that there was no room for any other cars. How pissing hard can it be to look at how everyone else has parked and fit your car in the same? Or is someone really so precious about their 20 year old van and ten year old crappy 1.6 hatchback that's covered in f**king rust already that they can't possibly have them stick out onto the pavement and the road a tiny little bit exactly the same as every one of the other 200 odd cars down the road?
We left a picture on the Astra.
