Because you can do that secretly. And I am pretty sure I am not growing any balls in the near future.

Re: car park rowdy

Revenge is sweet, but don't mess around with tyre valves - too obvious and takes too long.

- Hang around until the driver (and occupants) have left.
- Pull up behind the offending car, so your car is shielding the back of theirs.
-Then get out of yours and pretend to be looking all around your car, as if you have a problem.
-As you come level to the back end of their car, take the medium size potato which you've been carrying in your hand (from now on always carry a couple in your car - but change them regularly as they really stink when they rot), and drop down and feign looking under your car - then quickly turn and ram the potato hard onto the end of their exhaust, turn it back and forth a couple of times and pull the potato away - there should be a nice round piece completely filling the exhaust (much in the same way as loading a spud gun).
- Back in your car and drive off.

When dickhead returns and tries to start his car, it'll turn over and not start ... or start and then stall. If you haven't been able to ram in the spud too hard, it could pop out with a really loud bang of a backfire.

Re: car park rowdy

I'd be wary of doing anything that interferes with the other person's car. Bad manners and parking etiquette in one thing but finding ways of damaging or hindering the function of their car will probably have real repercussions if you are caught.

Annoying as it is, you don't want to sink to their level (or even lower) just to get your own back.

I'm guessing a banana would work just as well, but would be more aesthetically pleasing.

...But if you let the air out, wouldn't the only thing that's sinking be their car?

I agree, but it's nice to fantasize a bit.

True - we should have a sub-heading for the Complaints Corner entitled "Fantasy punishments for them that 'ave got up our noses today". Sort of an online punchbag.

Isnt this all part of the game?

I would of got out of the car after stealing your place, done an Irish Jig and sang My Old Man with a twist,

"you dillied, you dallied, you dallied and you dillied, you lost your place and dont know where to go..........."
if MacGregor's Daughter pulled out her gun and shot you after you did your jig, i would actually laugh and say "yeah, he deserved it".

No - don't think I've ever red repped or groaned, at least, not that I remember.

You, on the other hand, appear to be a prolific receiver

Anyway - my point was that the comment was made in very bad taste - glad it got your attention

Re: car park rowdy

In most cases like this, I find that the other person has genuinely not seen me. You'll always get a few chancers that will try to nick your spot, but I like to give people benefit of the doubt and think that most people aren't so inclined.

If I see someone trying to steal 'my' spot, I find that a quick beep of the horn, flash of the lights, and pointing at the spot usually gets across the idea that I was there first and am entitled to the spot. The trick is to get their attention before they've pulled into the spot. Once they're parked, it's much tougher to get them to move.

Re: car park rowdy

an interesting discussion similar to the topic is in the case of parallel parking.

My learning and understanding is when you have such a space to park, you pass the spot, and signal to back into it. (waiting to make sure you don't hit a passing car when your front end swings out).

Back home this was a popular opportunity for another to pull into the spot front first. A tougher less acceptable parking method, but doable nevertheless.

I would like to think once your are aligned with the next car and you signal indicating your back-parallel parking intent, the deal should be sealed. However one could always argue using some twisted logic, that the intent wasn't obvious, and it was an innocent mistake (or excuse :P)

Re: car park rowdy

Everyone should carry a small child in their boot. Perfect for reserving that elusive parking space while you are maneuvering.
