- Bloody neighbours!! Slightly ranty content!
Spend ages clearing snow outside our house to park the car safely and everytime I go out one of the neighbours has parked there when I get back!
The same neighbours that have made no effort to clear snow from the fronts of their own houses.
So now I have to park in the damn snow!

If it was on street parking, I would probably do exactly what your neighbour has done 😳
I certainly wouldn’t make an effort to park in a snowy space when there was a clear one available.
If they drive an Alfa by the way, it is actually soluble, so that might be why 😉Posted 5 years agoprojectMember
We built a snownman over a concrete bollard and cleared an area in front of it for a neighbour to park, another naughty neighbour parked on it and reversed into the snowman/concrete bollard as he thought it was a snow man made by students, he was not happy as he had forgot about the bollard.Posted 5 years agoonehundredthidiotMember
Lived in a block of flats couple of years ago after a week or so the path was icy compacted snow. Got the old ice axe out and starte dto clear it. Neighbour number one brought me out a cup of tea. Pregnant neighbour with child complained when she was out for a fag as I was disturbing the TV. I childshly cut a path just too narrow for her pushchair.Posted 5 years agomoomanMember
Similar here – spent a few hours clearing snow from our driveway and outside our house. Then some old ****t parks over my drive 👿
When I tell them they cant park there – they try to tell me they have to because they dont want to get stuck on the snow.
I think my reply to that convinced them to f@k off alltogether 👿Posted 5 years agotinybitsMember
I needed to make sure pregnant mrsbits could get microbits to nursery and then get herself to work. We live in a dead end with quite a slope and off camber to it. I was out gritting the road this morning, when otherwise nice neighbours 5 doors up and right at the end if the street came out and said ‘good luck, were off for a walk and to the pub’ now everyone in the street can get their cars out with the exception of aforementioned neighbours as I ‘ran out’ of grit 5m before I got to them. Good luck pulling away on that sheet of ice nobbers!Posted 5 years ago
b r – rumbled! The Mrs did it while I was at work!
MSP – to park facing down the hill would involve either turning round at the top which as the street is very narrow is virtually impossible or coming round from the other end which is a lot steeper and completely impossible!
Hora – ?
unfitgeezer – I won’t be losing any sleep over it, merely commenting on a forum, which I believe I’m entitled to do!
everyone else – thanks for the revenge ideas 🙂Posted 5 years agotakisawa2Subscriber
I hope the dozens of folk who’ve used the junction outside my house to turn round are grateful of my efforts on Friday night. A plonker in a new SMax sat & polished it up to a sheen when he got stuck. So I used the kids sledge & a large bucket to visit the grit bin a few streets away. That council grit is great stuff, an hour later even the hardpacked is gone. Did my drive, & the elderly gent next door. The least I could do, his hall resembles a parcel depot when I’m building a bike. :-Posted 5 years agoak123Member
We’ve had exactly the same happen here. First my husband cleared all the nearby pavements to help both the neighbours and myself (I’m heavily pregnant and don’t want to slip!) and the person parked outside our house cleared the snow off his car all over it so it was icy and dangerous again.
Then once that car left, our neighbour kindly repaid the favour by clearing the icy/snowy parking spot for my husband (and the extra snow off the pavement!) so he could park outside our house and it would be easy and safe for me to get to the car and back.
Of course, selfish lady over the road took the spot before he got home because she preferred the look of our spot to her own icy, uncleared one. So I now have to navigate the dangerous uncleared parts of the road and paths to get to the car. Which will be great if I need to rush to hospital in the middle of the night! (we’re having a lot of complications).
I understand it’s a public highway and don’t usually get too bothered by parking, but nicking someone’s cleared spot is just plain rude. They could have cleared it to help a pregnant wife, elderly neighbour etc. Dig out your own spot and stop being so lazy and mean!Posted 5 years agohelsMember
My knobend upstairs neighbour makes a big noisy 0700 show of clearing the front steps of our terrace so we all know what a martyr he is, I really wish he wouldn’t as it just turns to a big ice sheet and I have to waste valuable (at this time of year) cat litter to sort it. I’d speak to him about it except he is so mean and grumpy and generally obnoxious with a history of abusive shoutyness, and I’m not sure he comprehends english words very well.
Sadly, you can’t choose your neighbours.Posted 5 years ago
