Mum finds passive aggressive parking note on her car with ‘yellow fine’ bag

Mum finds passive aggressive parking note on her car with ‘yellow fine’ bag

11/25/2020

A mum had a mock ticket placed under her car windscreen by an angry resident – because they weren't able to park directly outside their house.

Despite leaving her car legally and there being no entitlement of a spot, the person left a note after giving her a real scare.

Left in a yellow plastic bag just like the ones traffic wardens dish out, the stranger clearly wasn't happy with someone parking near their property.

The note 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 woman took to Mumsnet to tell of her experience – and shared her relief that it wasn't an actual fine inside.

Uploading a photo of the fake sanction, she wrote alongside it: “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.

“In all seriousness, there wasn’t ‘plenty of space further up the road’ when I arrived, and the spaces aren’t just for residents."

She added: “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 two-year-old DD [darling daughter] 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?”

She had plenty of support on the popular online forum.

One joked: "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."

Another teased: "Do you need to park there again? If not, can you find a reason please."

A third wrote: They obviously don't think normal parking rules apply to them. I would hazard a guess that they're the sort of hypocrite who thinks they can park where they want."
