Yes, I have new neighbours. I'm not quite sure how I feel about it as the house has been empty for a couple of years and before that it had a three students in it who played loud music at 2am. They didn't stay long probably because it's out in the sticks here and I'm really horrible to people violating my personal space at 2am. The trouble I have is that a) it's attached to my house (corner terrace so they have a different road name to me) and they have no parking whatsoever. They have no off road parking, and no on road parking as their front door goes straight out into the road and it's only one car width (it's more of a little side road really) so no parking on their road. All the houses in my road have off road parking opposite. Mine is the last house, so I have the end drive. There is space for one medium/large car or two small cars directly opposite my house, just down from my drive. Now I'm perfectly fine with other people parking there. What winds me up is when one car is already parked there and another person comes along and thinks it perfectly fine to park there and overlap my drive, or park in front of my drive as they won't be there "long" (their definition of not long is usually an hour or more). These new people have 2 estate cars. Yes 2 ESTATE CARS and they have just bought a house knowing that there is NO AVAILABLE PARKING. I've just pounced on one of them for parking in front of my gate, which is another pet peeve of mine (it blocks access to my house - I get really irrate as I have to squeeze past and can't get my bike in and out of the house as you can't get it past the car. Fat people would similarly suffer from being unable to get past). There are 2 of them, 2 lads I'd say late 20s or early 30s, "surfer dude" types. Hopefully they haven't got many friends or an inclination for loud music at 2am. I was quite nice when I accosted the one that parked in front of the gate. We had a chat, introduced ourselves and had a discussion on where people park around here. I really wanted to say "I don't give a sh*t so long as you don't block my drive or gate", but kindly pointed out various places that wouldn't also upset other neighbours (people get surprisingly territorial around here if you park in "their" space). Just thought I'd have a whinge. I'm sure they'll be fine and I'm judging what they might act like based on all the previous neighbours I've had. What do you think, should I just be nice to them? They are new after all and don't know any better.
