Selfish’ driver shamed in cheeky note with colouring instructions by passer-by
There are only so many ways you can let someone know how utterly rubbish their parking is to them.
At least, within the confines of the law.
Confronting someone is often a bad idea, threats will land you in hot water and you can’t exactly move the vehicle yourself.
Behold, the passive-aggressive note, a fail-safe way of communicating your issue without ending up in a row you regret.
One passer-by left a rather cheeky note on the “selfish” driver’s window – and it included some unusual extras, the Liverpool Echo has reported.
The hand-written note, slapped onto the blue Toyota Yaris’ windscreen, was titled “Colouring for toddlers!” and included the outline of a duck.
It reads “(can a pram fit through?) (can a wheelchair fit through?)”
“Colour this in to help you learn how to stay in the lines. Park properly, d*!”
The message was left on the vehicle parked on Blenheim Road, Liverpool on April 23.
The frustrated resident, who filmed themselves leaving the cheeky instructions, said: “I don’t mind that people park up on the kerb, but when it completely obstructs the pavement that a wheelchair user or pram can’t get through, it’s an annoyance, selfish and rude.”
One person said: “Well done for this, absolutely sick of walking my pram into the road because people park so inconsiderately!”
Another commented: “Brilliant. Well done!! Some people are so selfish when parking.”
A third person added: “So inconsiderate. Why would anyone think it ok to force people to go onto the road to get past.”
One fan replied: “Footpath is for people and the road is for cars, so he’s right in doing that! Good on ya! If someone in a wheelchair or someone with a pram and other young children came down that pathway they’d have to go onto the road just to get around the car, is that right?
“No, it isn’t! Everyone parks up onto the pathway slightly, of course, but people are polite enough to leave plenty of space for pedestrians
