A raging homeowner has claimed a driver blocked their ‘bulging skip’ from being collected, branding them ‘selfish’ after it cost them hundreds of pounds to book a recollection.
The black Vauxhall Corsa is thought to have parked in an awkward position preventing the skip from being picked up from a residential street in Dovecot, Liverpool.
The furious skip owner went on to plaster the car with the same angry message that warned against ‘selfish idiotic parking’.
More than 13 sheets of A4 paper with the message printed on were stuck on the car’s windscreen and windows with duct tape.
But after the incident was revealed on Twitter, users on social media were divided over whether the action was right or wrong.
The black Vauxhall Corsa, parked in Dovecot, Liverpool, was plastered with angry A4 notes calling out the ‘selfish, idiotic parking’. The car is thought to have parked awkwardly blocking a skip collection which the homeowner said cost hundreds of pounds to rebook.
The angry note read: ‘Selfish idiotic parking! Parking right next to a bulging skip that’s due to be collected today has cost me a lot of time and money.
‘At 0803hrs this morning you parked in front of my property blocking an obviously bulging skip that was due to be collected today.
‘I have spent hours knocking on every house and asking in the shop about the owner.
‘It is now 1400hrs and it’s still blocking the skip; I will now have to pay extra charges because of your selfish stupidity.’
The angry note said: ‘Parking right next to a bulging skip that’s due to be collected today has cost me a lot of time and money.’ At the bottom the skip owner warned the driver to never park in front of his home again.
People on social media, however, have been left divided over who is in the right and who is in the wrong.
One person wrote: ‘It’s not illegal to park in front of somebody’s property.’
Another added: ‘People who think they own the road outside their house are hilarious in fairness.’
People on social media have been divided over whether the skip owner is in the right or the wrong.
Some people pointed out that the duct tape stuck on the car window and windscreen could cause damage.
One said: ‘If that tape peeled the clear coat off my car I’d be f*****g ranging.’
Another added: ‘I’d be knocking on his property informing him he needs to remove that tape … defo grounds for criminal damage if it f***s with the paint.’
Others pointed out the posters taped to the car’s window and windscreen could cause damage to its coat.
Others showed sympathy for the homeowner, agreeing that the driver should have parked in a more considerate way.
One woman said: ‘They have a point to be fair, if it is a driveway, if they’re an on-call health professional someone could be in a lot of trouble by the time they get there.’
Another man added: ‘How about don’t be ap***k and park in front of someone’s drive?’
Others felt sorry for the skip owner and said the driver was in the wrong for parking in awkward position. The homeowner said booking the skip recollection cost hundreds of pounds.
Selina Flowers on Facebook said: ‘People really need to be more aware when parking their car, park where you wish as long as its legal but being aware of your surroundings is common courtesy.
‘Now they have a bill for paint work.’
Kevin Foster added: ‘Why not give the car owner the bill from the skip company for the so-called extra money it has cost the homeowner.
‘Normally it’s a pay on the collection of the skip, if the wagon can’t pick it up then it’s not the homeowners fault it’s the car owner for blocking it.’
Some called on the car owner to pay the bill for recollection of the ‘bulging skip’ while others said people need to be more aware of where they are parking.
Some found the situation laughable.
One woman said: ‘Nothing could make me this embarrassingly angry.’
Another man added: ‘Should’ve just put it in the skip, probably where all Corsas belong to be fair.
‘I’m mildly disappointed he didn’t run out of toner in the printer and then subsequently printed off more to tell the person they now owe them for the toner and fuel to go to the shop and buy it.’
