This morning I was greeted by this…
Some inconsiderate prick thought it was a good idea to park their car right across my garage.
My first instinct was to get in my car and sound the horn until the fucker came out and then punch them in the face, but it was 7am and I didn’t really want to wake the whole neighbourhood. I was angry, but that didn’t excuse me being an annoying wanker about it.
My second instinct was to kick or scratch their car, but considering my vehicle is the only one blocked in, it would’ve pretty obvious who had done the damage and I didn’t want to risk them retaliating.
It’s not like I could move my car and hide it afterwards.
This is also the reason I resisted squatting on the bonnet and laying a hot fresh pie on their windscreen.
Shame, because the first one of the day is usually the meatiest.
And if they didn’t retaliate I could be slapped with a fine for criminal damage, which is always fun.
So instead I was terribly British and paced back and forth, muttering under my breath, and shaking my head in a misguided belief that it would somehow flush out the culprit…which it didn’t.
Instead I was left feeling more helpless and frustrated than a handcuffed pervert watching porn.
I was also angry that my four minute drive to the train station was going to result in a thirty minute uphill walk on a very, VERY cold October morning.
All I could do was take a photo (to send to my boss showing that my reason for being late is in fact genuine – not that I’m a cynic!), close my garage, lift their wiper blade up in defiance and begin my tedious walk to the station.
I would’ve left a note under their wiper blades but annoyingly I didn’t have time to go back in the house to write it. If I left immediately and walked at the blistering pace of an angry woman, I might just be able to make the later train.
I did, however, do the one thing that I thought might make me feel better; the one thing that may help ease my suffering and give me a sense of comfort. I posted it on Facebook.
Within seconds I got the affirmation and acknowledgement I was so clearly craving, with lots of advice on a variety of vindictive things I could’ve done to teach this parking penis a lesson. My favourite comment was this small poem…
Dear driver of the black car
Who do you think you are?
Don’t you find it bizarre…
You park but wander somewhere far?
Now my mate can’t access his car
Better this note, than my fucking crowbar!
