Posting on Mumsnet, a woman wanted to see whether she was in the wrong for letting her neighbours store their car on her property. A friend of her’s asked if they could store their classic car in her garden as they were scared to park it on the road near where they will be living for six months.
She said yes under the provisions that it wasn’t a parking spot, meaning no “coming and going”, and that she didn’t want their “huge, excitable dog” in the garden.
The new neighbour agreed, saying they would keep the dog away and only use the classic car to “turn it over” every few weeks.
The day before the neighbours were due to arrive, they said they weren’t bringing the classic car for another three weeks, asking if they could keep their small second car there in the meantime.
In the post, the homeowner said she agreed, assuming they just wanted to store it there, in a similar arrangement to the classic car.
She added: “The husband arrived with the car, with absolutely no notice, and the dog bolted out of the car, running all over.
“Next day her daughter and her husband showed up to get the car for the daughter to go out for the day, again the husband had the dog with him, not on a lead.
“When the daughter came back in the afternoon our builder had parked in the space.
“My friend phoned with an angry tone saying ‘someone is in our space’ I said I’d ask him to move it and she hung up.

“I was a bit shocked to be honest.”
Following this, she asked the family to keep the dog away and received a blunt response, which she said made her “bloody angry”.
She claimed that it would cost the family £50 a week to park the second car on the road.
The homeowner then questioned whether she was being unreasonable for being annoyed at the tone and actions of the neighbours.

Most commenters were on her side, saying that the daily were not being respectful considering she was doing them a favour.
One Mumsnet user said: “That’s so rude of her. She isn’t respecting you at all – she’s treating you like dirt.
“She sounds rather unpleasant in her responses, certainly not at all repentant. It’s almost like she is doing you a favour.”
Another commenter suggested that she text them again, giving them a date to move the car.
A third user said: “That’s pretty rude of her. I wouldn’t be able to ignore it.
“To be honest it’s a huge imposition to park a car for six months.
“I would take the opportunity to say sorry on reflection you won’t be able to help.
“Her friendship is no great loss, and you will have a spare spot for visitors, builders etc.”
One commenter was slightly more critical saying that it was “hilarious” that the homeowner was letting the neighbours “walk all over her”.
