'Entitled p****': Man tows neighbour's car after they refuse to move it from dad's drive

5 mins read

A man had his dad’s neighbour’s car towed after a friendly parking arrangement broke down. The his dad let the neighbour park in the space, however they refused to move the vehicle and felt “entitled” to the spot, according to his son.

The man said that his 62-year-old father has a car that he doesn’t use much which he keeps in his garage. Because the neighbouring couple has four cars, his dad let them park the space in front of his garage.

The man described the arrangement on Reddit, he said: “My dad doesn’t drive that much right now, but from time to time he likes to go back to our hometown and just spend the day in the places he and my mum used to go.

“Problem with this is that he can last a month or so without moving the car and thus his neighbours – a married couple in their 20s – use his driveway because they own four cars and don’t have the space.

“My dad doesn’t have that much of a problem with it since he leaves his car in the garage and told me that whenever he needs to get it out, he just calls the girl, and she moves the other car.”

However, one day the woman wasn’t home and the arrangement broke down. His father asked her husband to move the car, which he did but only after an hour or so of waiting.

“It was fine until a few months ago when apparently the girl is nowhere to be found and the guy is home all day. My dad had asked him a few times to please move the car and the dude just says, ‘yeah, sure’, and takes an hour or two to do so, by which point my dad can’t drive it because it’s already too dark for him to see properly,” the son added.

This continued, however, one day it occurred when the man was visiting his father. The car hadn’t been moved after 30 minutes, so he decided to take action.

He said: “My dad wanted to drive his car but the neighbour had his in my dad’s driveway and so he went to ask him to please move it. He said yes, but after 30 minutes of not seeing him, I called someone to get it towed.

Other commenters tended to agree with the original poster. One said: “He was asked politely, didn’t do it, so he has to handle the consequences. Not your fault his paperwork wasn’t in order, sucks to be him.”

Another chimed in: “This guy was obviously taking advantage of your father’s kindness. By your own account this isn’t the first time this guy has taken his time to move the car and left your dad stuck.

“Clearly bring nice wasn’t working. He was disrespectful and now he has to deal with the consequences.”

The man added that he knows his dad is “happy” he doesn’t have to deal with his neighbour’s car in the driveway any longer.
