Hi there everyone,
One of my pet hates is parking on the nature strip.
Before everyone gets all up in arms I am talking about my nature strip. I don't care what people do on their own, they can do as they please! (and yes, I know the nature strip isn't actually my property, it belongs to the council).
I also acknowledge that some streets are so narrow there is no other option but to park on the nature strip.
So, anyway, my neighbours have a visitor who seems to think that my nature strip is her personal parking space. My street is very wide and has loads of parking, however she chooses to park right on my nature strip (not my neighbours who she is visiting as theirs has a power pole).
IT DOES MY HEAD IN
Yes, I know my anger is completely irrational but hey, I'm a new Mummy and sleep deprived so I am allowed to be irrational.
The last time this visitor parked on my nature strip I chatted to my neighbour after said visitor had left (I pretended to be watering the garden but was watching for when my neighbour came outside so I could ambush her) and said "hey, do you happen to know who was parking on my nature strip?" neighbour replied "yes, Its my sister" and then started talking about something else. I was too chicken to say anything else and hoped she would get the hint.... it didn't work.
I'm too much of a chicken $hit scaredy cat to just be a normal person and ask the sister to stop parking on my nature strip so i am thinking of planting something or buying a huge rock to block the access so no-one can ever park there again.
Am I derranged?
What would you do?
