    The owner might not have the fitness /ability to move it.

    True, some of the Utd squad are looking a bit slack these days.

    I’d have rode past probably not even noticed that another car had parked on that spot again. Maybe they were wild camping.

    Rocks were obviously put there to stop people parking there

    This. Do those saying “Well, other people have parked there” not think that the rocks were originally put there to stop entitled **** in the their cars churning the grass up??
    Just lately I’ve noticed **** in cars parking in spots all over the south downs – ON the SDW and on bridleways, one (a Skoda) was parked on the entrance to a BOAT that’s a blind turning off the road. Completely **** blocking the entrance. Pisses me off.
    But yeah other people do it so it’s fine.

    I feel sorry for the Butler who will have to hoover mud from the deep pile beige carpets and scrub the Hunter wellies….

    I don’t think anyone has said “others have done it so its ok”. Quite a lot of us have said that others have done it and it’s not just a Bentley thing.

    Deciding not to get wound up by other people’s **** behaviour is often the only coping method we have left!

    Exactly. The answer is to put the stone back when the space is empty maybe a bigger one.

    I don’t think you would have done anything of it was a knackered old Ford. You just have an issue with it being a very expensive car

    I’d get a car price sign from a Fiat Punto, stick it on the windscreen, then buy the Bentley and drive it home.

    I think it’s an uglier side of our society that people automatically assume people with money are bigger dicks than the rest of us.

    Hard to comment without seeing the whole layout but if they hadn’t parked there, somebody else would have – looks well used.

    It probably is insensitive parking, hard to tell for sure, but whoever rolled the rock back has a huge chip on their shoulder.

    A lot of them are though.

    Although to be fair, our new breed of massively over paid footballers are treading a completley different path…

    True, stone-roller should have checked to see if it was Marcus Rashford before acting. He has the Queen’s blessing to park wherever he wants.

    Exactly this.

    Parking in a space clearly used by others but also pretty obviously not meant for parking is ignorant. Specifically going out of your way to block them in (or put shit on the handles, mud on the window, etc) marks you out as an utter c**t.

    I don’t think you would have done anything of it was a knackered old Ford. You just have an issue with it being a very expensive car.

    This too. Plenty of it on here, see any number of threads. Ugly attitudes. Who cares, live and let live.

    Break in and park it straight. It’s on a slight angle now and that’s just bad form.

    There might have been poetic justice involved later. A couple in some small BMW parked on the muddy grass below Tarn Hows last week and got stuck. Proper spinning the wheels until dug in stuck. Didn’t seem to want any offer to tow them out and seemed more amused than worried about it.

    Is this in access to the disabled car park above tarn hows?

    Were they displaying a ticket or national trust badge?

    Frozen sausages, bombers or chuck a can of red bull at them

    I’d just ride past probably make a comment to my riding buddies and get on with my day.

    You’ve behaved like a knob moving the rock. Seeing the ruts it looks like plenty of people have parked there before the Bentley driver. What if it’s an old dear who can’t move the rock?

    Was at a Biergarten a few weeks back.

    Some Tesla pulled up taking up two spaces. My mates sprung up and and moved their vans to within about 2cm either side of the Tesla. Other guests saw what they were up to and all seemed to approve.

    I consider moving the rock back into place a good deed. Just need to now wait for them to return.

    They have and they’re still saying it.
    To me, it’s **** all to do with it being a Bentley and everything to do with it being a car.
    Maybe postierich is different.
    But I’m away from this thread now.

    I think it’s an uglier side of our society that people automatically assume people with money are bigger dicks than the rest of us.

    I’m not sure that is the case here. It’s the model of car as much as the cost of it. I have nothing against normal Rollers & Bentleys in general, but that 4×4 thing is inutterably loathsome. Most other heuge cars have something about them, a presence, a top speed or a beauty.

    That thing is just a butt ugly ignorant way of showing how much money and how little class you have.

    In this case I think it is a perfectly valid assumption to say that the person driving it is a bigger dick than the rest of us.

    [Partly tongue in check, but partly I genuinely do think that]

    It seems to me that the answer to someone acting like a dick is to act like a dick yourself. Who knew?

    Alternatively they could be the nicest person you’ve ever known but have no taste in cars. Just look at the Nissan Juke.

    Well I for one would like to say nice job on moving the rock back postierich, I’d possibly not have stopped at one.

    I’d shake my head and carry on my ride.

    People are dicks, some drive big cars, some don’t, but nothing you will do will stop said people being dicks, and getting pissed off about it just puts a dampener on your day.

    So would that then mean that your mates vans were also straddling two spaces each?

    What they should do is park on the road and block emergency services being able to get past, of course.

    You only need a Peugeot for that.

    (For those who don’t know – the Ambulance and MRT were coming down off the hill. The cars had parked after the emergency vehicles went up to deal with casualty, blocking them in.

    I believe (and this was only Facebook post) that the Ambulance and MRT transferred a patient. They then waited while police and MRT took a walk along to the falls to find the car owners. They have been prosecuted – it is a public road, it just has a gate as there is no cattle-grid, there is farm and 3x houses up there.

    Glad to hear they were prosecuted MOAB. You would have thought all of that yellow paint arranged in twin lines indicated it was a bad place to park.. Selfish **** arseholes.
