The blurring of boundaries

Thursday June 30, 2022

I've noticed a lot of blurring of boundaries these past few years. It must be me getting old(er), but some things, like bad manners annoy and frustrate me very much!

We live in a cul-de-sac where parking can be a problem. Our house is down a side access path, tarmacked, which is constantly obstructed by next door's or next door's visitors cars. We cannot get out.

Now you would have thought that one or two knocks on their door and the penny would drop. But no. No apology. No shift in habit. A new neighbour on the far side has also been on the receiving end of this antisocial behaviour and had a word with us about it last week. She is fairly incredulous that neighbours can use and abuse her drive without so much as a by-your-leave.

Now if all this sounds rather petty, it is. But the impact on people is huge. It smacks of lack of personal respect for your neighbour.

What do you think and advise?
