I love using the Cafe to vent and get some stuff off my chest
At our house, we have a driveway that leads up to a two car garage. My Dad uses the garage as his workshop so no cars park in it. Everyone in my family has a car (Mom, Sister, myself and my Dad has a truck). Two cars park on one side of the driveway, one behind the other, and the other two do the same on the other side. Here's where it gets interesting.
Its a tight fit for all four cars in the driveway. In fact, the back end of my Dad's truck sticks out in the road slightly, but we live on a side street with little traffic. My Dad parks his truck behind my Mom's car and my sister and I park our cars on the other side. However, my Sister almost always parks about 8-10 feet away from the front of the garage which makes the back end of my car almost stick out in the road, even if I park inches away from the back of her car. I always park nice and close to the garage to give her plenty of room to park behind me.
I've asked her nicely many times if she could simply pull her car up a bit further when she is first in the driveway. When I talk to her nicely, she either flat out denies parking the way I describe it or she just writes it off as something "so stupid" that nothing has to be done about it. This has been going on for months and I finally reached the end of my wits and got a bit ticked off tonight when I got home from work. She wasn't home so my parents heard/saw the brunt of my anger and for only the second or third time in my 20 years of life (no I am not kidding one little bit) I used the f-bomb.
Sorry for the long wall of words but is it too much to ask for her to just pull up so I can fit in the driveway with some
room to spare?
