DH was telling me about this yesterday, as I had been at church with the kids and sometimes if he has things to do he'll drop us off and go take care of errands while we're in church.
Anyway, he had gone to Target and Lowe's and as per usual, when he buys stuff for the backyard he will drive down the alley and briefly park the car there cause the gate for the backyard is at the side of the house and it's easier than carrying heavy bags of mulch and such from the front of the house.
It took him maybe 5 minutes to unload, tops. Apparently our neighbors got rather testy with him for doing this. Mind you, these people are frequently blocking the alley with their own cars, or their friends will do so, or they'll honk loud and long for someone to come out or just for fun, without a care as to whether or not someone else might want to drive down the alley. But heaven forbid anyone else use the alley for five minutes to unload a vehicle.
