Re: License plate stolen

Update: My friend's husband retrieved the missing rear plate for me from his neighbour. I didn't ask for the details of the negotiation, I really don't care any more.

I then went back to the police station to explain that the plate was found, and I have the feeling that the officer was very happy not to have to follow up on the incident.
In the future keep in mind that when you have this sort of situations the best negotiator in a family is the husband. It's the old way I know and I'm personally used to solve my problems alone...but apparently it works better here.
All is good when it ends well. Now you know: assume all the parking places are private.
P.S. If you're unsure and under pressure to park your car for a short time you can leave your mobile number in sight.

Of course I was *not* aware he was getting more and more angry every Saturday! What I meant is: "In retrospect, I am *assuming* that he was getting more and more angry every Saturday". Until the event of last Saturday, I had no clue that I was parked at the wrong spot. I would have never parked on someone else's spot! I cannot emphasize this enough!

I am sorry to see that I have not been making myself clear all along .
You made yourself perfectly clear right from the start as far as I'm concerned.

I would however get the neighbour or her husband to ask the landlord or agency about visitor parking for their appartment. They could just innocently enquire as to where the nearest parking places are for their visitors to use.

Thinking about it some more it does seem a little strange that there was never a car parked in the place when you visited and surely if the guy's car had been parked there regularly your friend would have seen it and realised that it was perhaps a private space.
