    No money? Didn't want to sit in a coffee shop for two entire hours? I would rather sit in my car than in a public place if I had two hours to kill.

    Maybe he had two hours in between clients (estate agent or something?) and he was far away from home?

    Maybe he was working up the courage to tell his family he prefers to live as a Fursona?

    Maybe he was planning a cheese heist?

    Maybe he was trying to create the world's stinkiest Dutch oven?

    All possibilities

    tbh I probably wouldn't do anything. and that's if I even noticed him.

    if I saw anything suspicious I may be tempted to phone my local police station just to query whether they think it's worth driving past to take a look.

    but if he was just sitting there being harmless of mind my own business and just leave him to it.

    as others have said, there are a multitude of (non suspicious) reasons why he might be sitting there.

    He could also be casing out the street to see who comes and goes. Sitting in your car in a quiet street is . not normal.

    I don't. Sure there *may* be *legitimate* reasons why someone sits in their parked car out the front of someone else's house for 2 hours ... I just believe that it's a bloody long shot. Seriously - not many sane, safe and happy people would do that.

    I nearly post the same kind of thread last night.

    A lady and her ~6-7yo daughter spent over 2 hrs in their car in front of my house. It was odd because it was past 6pm and they were parked in a permit zone with no permit.

    The lady was quite organised as she had a cushion for her daughter to rest on.

    I was pretty worried about them, thinking the worst (no place to stay, abusive household etc).

    I did ask her if she was ok but she shoved me off.
    Anyway they were gone between 8 and 8.30pm so that was it.

    Well I actually don't think it's a bit OTT because I used to live where all the blokes would get hookers etc 😒😒 yes the ones walking trying to climb into your car etc. I would be walking to uni EVEN pregnant I would have to yell **** off creep etc! I felt very unsafe! So I always called cops because I felt f u work people getting dirty with vulnerable young girls high on drugs working the streets.

    ***EDIT TO ADD**

    I bet you if say someone was killed yesterday. Say wife of daughter or even husband. Anybody it doesn't really matter murdrr, domestic violence. I would like to think my OTT phone call would help!
