I finally called the cops about our next door neighbours tonight
I am only just calming down from early evening.
They have space for 6-7 vehicles on their drive yet the annoying twonks always park loads of vehicles, especially breakdown trucks with wreckers on them outside our house or other neighbours. They own a scrap-yard and we all call them "The Clampitts" - including the lady vicar who lives opposite funnily enough!
Tonight, presumably because MrsJim had the audacity to park ger car outside our front window instead of on our drive, and perhaps because the vicar complained about their kid's teenage friends urinating on their drive/garage door (we've seen this dozens of times including young women!
) he decided to take the breakdown truck with a scrap Sierra on it off their drive and actaully park it half on the pavement and half on my lawn. So far onto it, in fact that the cab's screen was covered by a large conifer in the middle of my side garden.
Infuriated, I went next door and very politely asked him to get his truck off my lawn. His immediate response was (with a large steak knife in hand - he appeared to be eating) to ask WTF I wanted, to scream he was F'ing sick of "you" f'ng lot and he'd f'ing park his f'ing trucks wgerever he f'in well wanted.
Trying to stay cool and thinking sadly about people being stabbed to death for similar minor complaints (pathetic I know) I stepped back and said -politely again - "you have plenty of space on your drive, there is lots of road out there, kindly get your truck off my lawn". He went off on another purple-faced, spittling tirade and slammed the door so hard that his door bell fell off! H shouted to get the F*** off his drive and not to come on his land again as he slammed it in my face!
I'd had enough and finally called the police. An hour later he moved it before the cop arrived to have a word. Meanwhile the vicar and her 18 yr-old son came over to give us moral support and to say he'd heard all the exchange from his bedroom.
The police advised there could sometimes be a negative reaction but I said, I didn't care, go round and speak to him.
I am so sick of these [email protected]
@rds yet I don't want to be driven out by them.
Thanks for listening. I had to get it off my chest. I am actually calming down and I genuinely believe I am very placid person 99.9% of the time.
