An emergency vehicle draws up outside your house

Do you

a) Hope that one of your neighbours hasn't been taken ill

b) Admire the efficiency of our emergency services

c) Be thankful that it's not for you or one of yours

d) Write a note and put it on the windscreen complaining about the inappropriate parking and asking the driver to move it.

Every street has one...

I think that we need to know more.

I work at night driving a Taxi. A while back an Ambulance left himself in the middle of the road, completely blocking it, rather than drawing to one side.

They did not need to run to the Club as there was no emergency and there was a suitable parking spot with 2 cars length of where they stopped. When they returned, with the drunken girl, there was a backup of about 30 cars and 2 busses.

Totally unnecessary. Even the local Police were not impressed.

Of course, if time is of an essence, they should be able to do whatever is necessary but, there are a few who like to make their presence felt, come what may.

I had a police Riot Van come after reporting a theft, they said it was the only vehicle available. Don't know what the neighbours made of that.

I don't know what to make of this sort of thing. I wonder what she has to say about it. She must have learnt what people make of it all. Perhaps she is just so thick that she sees nothing wrong in her behaviour.

Lots of people believe that the space outside where they live is their dedicated parking spot, and that they have a right to it. In this case, the ambulance was properly parked by the side of the road.

Let's hope that the woman concerned is duly appreciative if she ever has to call an ambulance.

"A 26-year-old woman has been fined £120 after admitting swearing at paramedics and leaving a foul-mouthed note on their ambulance."

Still think my suggestion of her going out with them for a week would be better.

I do not particularly like people parking outside my house especially on my forecourt as it is a private road. On my forecourt I have had to point it out to a few drivers politely who have accepted it appologised and moved. On the road itself I tolerate it as long as only short periods. It would not occur to me to put abusive notes on the windows of any vehicle.

My neighbour is carrying out extensive building works and delivery vehicles are frequently blocking my driveway as they have little option. If I am not about to go out somewhere important then what does it matter. Others in the road can become completely irrational over such issues like 2 foot onto their "Their" space. I fail to understand their mentality what is wrong with live and let live. Are there not more important things in life to worry about.

agree with mole44

Fine her then give her a weeks community service with the Ambulance service. All the emergency services do a fantastic job often under a lot of pressure and really don't need self centred idiots adding problems to what can often be a stressful situation
