Man Receives Angry Note About Parking But Owns Neighbour With Reply

Parking feuds tend to ignite a certain unique kind of anger between neighbours. Usually a slow burning dispute, they tend to result in out-and-out pettiness - as one Reddit user can testify.

After one guy got gradually more and more peeved off at the parking of another, a passive-aggressive note was found on his vehicle, complete with a good old-fashioned threat to get the council involved. He must have been shaking.

But as is the way with neighbourhood quarrels, it wasn't taken lying down, with the recipient of the note leaving a brutal response.

Posting the cringe-worthy encounter on Reddit, he wrote: "Found an angry note on my car today. I replied."

The original note was posted next to his letter, which was placed on his car window.

The angry note read: "This is a public car park. You have taken parking spaces for two weeks.

"This is not fair on residents whom rely on this car park. The council have been informed!"

And the reply was incredible.

He said: "To the writer of this note.

"Firstly, I would like to thank you for the vigour with which you are defending residents' right to park in this public car park.

"I have not taken parking spaces for two weeks, as you claim, but actually two years with this vehicle and six years if we're including my previous vehicle."

He went on: "I agree that it is annoying when there aren't any spaces left in this car park, however that is the nature of a public car park and it's something we all have to live with.

"For at least three nights last week I had to park on [road name].

"While I appreciate your opinion, I will be continuing to use this car park, where spaces permit, for the foreseeable future.

"I would have thought that my house being 200ft away from this car park qualified me as a resident.

"If you'd like to discuss this in more detail, I would welcome the opportunity to hear what the council's response was to being informed that a car has parked in a public car park."

You can't beat a faux-formal response to really put a busy-body in their place.

And literally hundreds of people replied to the post, with many having similar anecdotes.

One person said: "Reminds me of the time someone left a note on my flatmates car, adamant that the parking was residents only and that he should use the public car park two streets down...

"Except the car park two streets down is actually private, it's not residents only parking, and well, even if it was he bloody lives there. Lived there like three years at this point with the same car."

*shakes fist in anger*
