Office parking shenanegans….
matt_outandabout – Member
I dropped a couple of colleagues back at the office this afternoon at 5:15 – and did a three point turn to immediately leave, using a spare parking bay to do this. Another complaint that this should not be done…
The best bit is – they have 30 spaces (as do we), and 8 employees…
Hahaha, do everything you can to wind this idiot up, just promise to keep us informed.Posted 3 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber
Phone a skip hire company. In fact, better still, phone 3 or 4. Get them to deliver their skips at intervals throughout the day, neatly placed in various parking bays (theirs not yours obviously!)
Then order a ton of gravel, again with the request that it be dropped just in the confines of one parking bay. Repeat with bricks, sand and any other building materials you can think of.

So we just moved building at work, 100m away from our old on.
On day 1 in new office, the car park was just ‘occupied’ randomly by our staff, as we used it in the old one.
Turns out that each bit of carpark is allocated to the other companies in the building. One company has a female director who stood at the window and watched everyone – then
worked herself up for an hourcame and had a stropword with the facilities manager, then lovely, full A4, colour notes on headed notepaper, messages on every ones windows in the car park. This she did twice, as it rained on the first lot. 😆
Day 2, today, started with notes on the bushes in the car park and seriously stroppy emails being forwarded by the facilities manager to everyone from her, warning of consequences.
We even have four disabled spots – two of which are now marked with their companies logo, and verboten for disabled guests visiting our office.
And then I have just been given a text heads up for tomorrow – I dropped a couple of colleagues back at the office this afternoon at 5:15 – and did a three point turn to immediately leave, using a spare parking bay to do this. Another complaint that this should not be done…and I am to speak to the facilities manager about this(!)
The facilities manager is too nice to tell her to do one…
So, what fun can I wreak on the
tormented soul of a madwomanlovely lady involved? Tomorrow small signs get screwed on to each parking bay – I am tempted to unscrew and move them all around 👿

Personally I stay away with people who are so unhinged about such minor matters that they have to play passive aggressive games instead of have a face to face chat. You get dragged into their screwed-up worlds…
……Yeah but it can be sooo much fun if you know this beforehandPosted 3 years agoJon TaylorSubscriber
Oh my, you can have so much fun with her. Keep us posted on how you mess with her petty little mind.
Do something different every day and make sure everyone in your office is in on it. Even better if you stay away from their bays (so that she has no legitimate grievance) but still gets wound up.
Day 1. All park perpendicular to the marked bays.
Day 2. All park herringbone/angled.
Day 3. All park exactly half-way across two bays, but up tight with each other.
Day 4. All park completely randomly.
Day 5. All park in their bays. When confronted, say you forgot which were yours.
Day 6. All park perfectly – front in.Posted 3 years ago
Day 7. All park perfectly – reverse park.
Day 8. Everyone park on-street leaving your spaces empty.
Day 9. Hire a RWD car and do burnouts in their car park.
Day 10. All completely random again.Russell96Subscriber
Park in your official allocated bays once those are fun park on the road/verges outside whilst those ‘reserved’ spaces remain all day signalling to one and all who the Billy no mates are.
As for the three point turn despite facilities being too nice tell them to P off, after all they have created this situation so deserve some flack back.Posted 3 years agobatfinkMember
Not unusual if they are paying for them, they’re theirs, not yours/anyones.
Get over it and park where you’re supposed to?
Have a serious word with yourself and ask who is actually getting more worked up about this….
I’m inclined to agree with this, however, the 3-point-turn thing is ridiculous.Posted 3 years agoMatt24kSubscriber
Forget all these random parking ideas. Just invade Poland if you really want to stir things up. That would be the grown up thing to do.Posted 3 years ago
Alternatively, why not arrange a meeting with the nice lady, yourself and the Facilities Manager and reach some to an amicable agreement. Life is too short.
