The parking on my street is winding me up something fierce today. The road is kind of T-shaped, with on street parking along the right hand side of the road, and two parking areas at the top end, on either side of the road. We live slap bang in the middle of the road, where there should be an on street space in front of the house. In the middle of the day, there's obviously plenty of room when everyone is out at work. Along the length of the road, there's room for at least nine or ten cars if everybody shuffles up a bit - but nobody seems to bother.
SO OFTEN I get home and there's no room to park anywhere near my house. There's nearly always plenty of room in the two little off-road spots, and in all fairness they're not far, but when it's late at night and I'm tired and I've been working all day and it's cold - that extra ninety seconds it takes me to get home are sometimes very annoying. Unnecessarily so, I admit - but when everyone has parked justthatlittlebit too near everyone else for me to park in front of my house, and if everyone had shuffled up another two feet you could get another two cars along the road, and it's dark and raining, it just seems really rude to not take into consideration how much room you leave for everyone else.
Maybe Christmas is just stressing me out, but it's making me very cross!
