    I have a reserved parking space and it clearly says RESERVED on the wall in front of it. This morning I pull in for work and someone is parked in it.

    Like what? Seriously?! The less than helpful receptionist of the owner of the space says 'Can you use another one?'

    No love I can't - get it sorted now!

    RANT OVER.

    Sometimes I wish I had an old banger that was worthless. I'd be more than happy to bump into any car where the driver is taking the mickey. To smash off doors of all those cars where a driver decides to open their door in the middle of passing traffic, or those drivers messing around with something in their car while the door is open.

    I'm actually about to resort to this with my neighbour - who parks over THEIR drive way thus blocking my exit out of mine. This is a no no in the highway code. He actually said to me once (in a chapel of all places) that the lady who lived in the house before me banged his car once because of how he was parked. I said 'I'm not surprised! If you keep doing it to me I'll be doing the same!'

    Oh god, yes. When I see someone parked across two car parking spaces in a supermarket (effectively leaving more than half a car width either side, but not enough room for another car) I have to fight the urge to park next to them like this...

    My friend and I (childish I know) keep notepads and pens in our cars to leave notes. I last left one at Christmas,

    'You are taking up TWO parking spaces in a city where it is already a nightmare to park. Have some consideration please'.

    It was one of those Range Rovers - humph!

    A work colleague of mine attends University here in Newcastle (New South Wales, Australia) and was showing me images how students park. They even have a facebook page set up. Honestly? How did people pass their driving test?

    One day I was returning to my car when I spotted a bunch of tradies lifting a small car onto the footpath because some twat decided their little buzz box could squeeze between two 4 wheel drives leaving one of the 4 wheel drivers unable to get out. It was one of the funniest things I'd seen in a while. I can just imagine the owner of the small buzz box returning and standing there scratching their head thinking, "What the Hell!"
