Having said that, sometimes you arrive and find that there's only one spot left in the parking lot, with an idiot on one side or another that's taken more than his space. I'll do my best to squeeze in, and be careful not to hit your car, but if he's already gone by the time you get back to your car, it's going to look like I parked selfishly.
You could lift up his wipers...

It appears they are. And there was no way I was going to wait - or attempt a 340 point exit manouvre - so instead I nudged by way out - with limited clutch control.

Old Volvos follow the old adage "Never pick a fight with an ugly bloke - they have nothing to lose."
That reminds me of a Chris Tarrant story.

Quote:
"One Saturday evening, just before Christmas a couple of years ago, a particularly arrogant young yuppie was holding up a whole side street in London by parking his brand new bright red Porsche right in the middle of the road whilst strolling up and down the pavement looking for a particular flat and, while cars trying to go in both directions tooted their horns at him furiously, he refused to be hurried and gave us all the finger. After about the third finger, I have to admit - shamefully, I snapped.

I drove my rather larger & heavier car forward and took off the whole side of his pretty little Porsche, to a loud cheer from everybody else in the road.
It cost me a fortune to pay for his repairs & I lost my no claims bonus and I admit it was a totally irresponsible thing to have done.
But I also have to tell you that the precise second when my front bumper made contact with his wing, was possibly one of the happiest moments of my entire life"

Re: Toucha ma car and I smasha ya face

You're not my neighbouer are you?

SWISS NACHBARIN can't park [Is this appropriate?]

I don't think I am a parking Nazi and I don't consider myself petty, I think you should get the hint and should start parking properly, as much as you are frustrated that someone has tampered with your windscreen wipers, think how the other person must have felt when he/she tried to park and had to take corrective actions to your parking regardless of the reason you decided to park that way. Just my tuppence...

Re: Toucha ma car and I smasha ya face

In my street people lift up their wipers voluntarily to prevent them from getting stuck to the windshield at night when the frost sets it... Perhaps your neighbour is trying to help you???

How do you know it's in protest about your parking?

They might be just generally barmy.
or, more likely, raising your wiper is a way of giving you the finger ..?

Re: Toucha ma car and I smasha ya face

Haven't seen it in CH (yet), but we can't forget the a$$holes who think their car (usually some German or Italian exotic [the car, not the person ]) is prettier than everyone else's and parks diagonal across 2 (or more) spaces... That can get MY goat when the lot's crowded.

Supposing they do this even when you are parked in a reasonable manner, ask Corsebou if he can hook you up with a good deal on a USB camera, set up a little netbook, and find out who's doing it. Then peanut-butter the underside of their door handle.

Re: Toucha ma car and I smasha ya face

Instead of putting yours back down, lift everyone elses up. That'll get more people looking for the culprit and therefore someone will have a greater chance of finding the afore mentioned culprit.

Viz top tip:

Prevent people from lifting your wipers by superglueing them to your windscreen.
