A MUM has revealed the VERY passive aggressive parking note she received from a stranger – and they even stuck it to her windscreen with a yellow fine bag.
Taking to Mumsnet, she shared photos of the note which complained she was using residential parking spaces.
The note from the stranger read: “If you must insist on parking on a residents bay, please be considerate of families with children who may need to park outside their own house!
“Plenty of space further up the road…”
The mum then asked fellow members of mumsnet whether she might be in the wrong.
Captioning her photos, she wrote: “I’ve just returned to my car (parked completely legally in a bay on the road, within the lines and well within the specified 2-hour time limit) to a beautifully-written passive aggressive note – A* for effort.
“Whoever stuck it on my dashboard actually put it inside one of those yellow PCN envelopes, folded up so it looked like a parking ticket.”
She continued: “In all seriousness, there wasn’t ‘plenty of space further up the road’ when I arrived, and the spaces aren’t just for residents.
“I’ve lived in a house like this before so I get it, and yes it’s annoying, but not really much you can do about it apart from say ‘ffs’ and go about your day.
“I sympathise as I have a 2 year old DD so completely get the difficulty of hauling kids in and out of the car, but AIBU (am I being unreasonable) to thinking giving someone a fright by making them think they’ve been given a ticket (money is v tight at the moment) is – while pretty creative – a bit much?”
Fellow Mumsnet users were quick to weigh in, with all agreeing that she wasn’t being unreasonable at all.
One wrote: “Absolutely a bit much. I hate people like this.”
Another pointed out: “To have a penalty notice envelope ready to go suggests they've been caught parking where they shouldn't at some point, so at least you can console yourself with the fact they're out of pocket.”
“That note would make me want to park there every day for the next month,” added a third.
