    Just have to vent,

    Myself and a colleague popped for lunch at a cafe round the corner, and there is limited parking out front but more spots across the road. We were lucky enough to grab a spot out front and grabbed a light lunch.

    Now we had to be back in the office by 12 as we have an outage window (a period of time where the live service of an IT system can be taken down to perform maintenance/upgrades).

    We come out, and this douchenozzle has parked to the side of us, completely boxing us in as there was a car behind us as well. He had popped into the bookies next to the cafe, and was gambling while we were stuck.

    A Parking Warden comes along and I go "Finally, the day I am happy to see one!", but the law states they have to give the car 5 minutes, which the guy inside is aware off. He waits and finishes what he was doing, and I work out that he has seen us waiting outside the whole time and knows the rules with regards to the warden.

    He comes out and goes to the warden "Not been 5 minutes yet", the warden goes "Don't start, you're taking the piss" and it is apparent this guy has done this multiple times before, and gives the warden a hug which pisses him off, then laughs at me and my colleague and gives us a smug smile and thumbs up before getting in his car laughing and driving off.

    The warden comes over to us and explains the law about the 5 minutes, and all his mates in the bookie are noses to the glass and have a right laugh at us. Fecks me off to no end, and wished there was something more to be done.

    Sorry if this is long, but needed to vent! Photo is below to show the situation:

    I would of stood in the way of his vehicle so he couldn't get out and went over the 5 min time limit, also dunno where you are but in London its only 3 mins

    If he tried to get larey I would of clutched my chest, faked a heart attack, sat down behind his car and been like, don't touch me don't touch me. As soon as he got a ticket I would of jumped up and walked off :) but I am an asshole

    Wish I thought of that! But the guy was such a pleb he would of probably mounted the curb and drove off.

    Am in Heathrow, so think it doesn't fall under London law.

    I would have found the temptation to key his car overwhelming.

    Was tempting, but I was close to work, and can't risk it.

    Also I'm sure his knuckle-dragging compatriots who love wasting their dole money would of come out and flung feces at me.

    Put an empty glass bottle under his front wheel.

    Job done.

    Get a tire valve remover. Would only take 10 seconds to piss him off. 5 mins wouldn't have been an issue either.

    You could watch and record from a distance too.

    I would have just pushed his car out of the way with yours, if he is illegally parked and not disabled I can hardly see it going to court or anything. ;)

    Let the air outside the rear passenger side tire. He won't notice until he's started driving.

    A squire of shampoo over the wipers works a treat in this situation.

    Smears everywhere & foams when they try to use the washers.

    DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME

    This. I'd have done it in a subtle location so the ***** wouldn't have noticed until later.

    Get a friend to block him from getting into his car, wait till the 5 minutes are up and then your friend can move :thumb:

    I wouldn't condone vandalism but that behaviour would annoy the pants off me. I think the shampoo idea sounds like a lot of fun.

    Apply a small piece of black tape over his numberplate, so as to change the registration. I wager he'd have some fun after getting pinged by an ANPR camera.

    I think I need a speed dial of the bit-tech vandals for when this occurs again!

    And regarding the comment on driving a ford, not my car!

    Quick solution: Next time he parks there and you're driving past, go and park right behind him. Don't get out of the car or turn the engine off, just wait there (pretend to be on the phone or something) until the TW comes back. :)

    Or randomly sprinkle a box of nails behind his car.
