Parking issue with neighbours

TIS

So last weekend I couldn't find a blue zone parking for the car...so i left it outside the front door just till i unloaded the groceries from the car...and lo and behold, the neighbor sat on my hood and refused to get off...luckily a few strokes and a can of tuna were enough to resolve this issue, and diplomatic relations were resumed shortly after that.

Re: Parking issue with neighbours

Ha, lovely zmaster1911. Wish our parking dispute had been resolved so easily. Mind you, you might have given him/her a reason to do a repeat performance. Tuna's not easily come by on a cold winter's evening.

Re: Parking issue with neighbours

I don't think the OP should have kids. If you can't get a furball off a car, how are you going to get a child into coat, hat & gloves on a cold day?

Re: Parking issue with neighbours

A hose is cheaper than a can of tuna and far more effective. You've now trained the foul beast to sit on your car for free tuna.

TUNA? For the cat no doubt! Tried ?

My neighbours back in UK park their wheelie bins in road space every time they leave the house.

Tuna will make him more fascinated, more interested in your car! Eyes almost lights up when.
