Random acts of kindness

I liked this one!

http://mashable.com/2013/10/21/random-acts-of-kindness/

The first one made me feel a bit guilty, though, because in London a woman routinely blocked in our car when visiting people across the road. Not even a by your leave. :evil:

I started off by leaving snotty messages on her windscreen saying not to block us in, but that didn't work. Then I moved on to getting in the car each time and sounding the horn until she shifted. A simple request, or even a note on our windscreen saying how/where she could be contacted would have sufficed. But I just responded to her rudeness with a corresponding lack of co-operation.

What would you have done?

If I plenty of mone at the time I might have researched getting her car towed. Sometimes it's hard to do because they will often only tow your car, not someone else's.

Sit on the wing of her car and bounce up and down until it triggers the alarm. Stand back and wait till she comes out to check it.

Get her name and address from DVLA (costs a couple of quid) and send her an invoice for my wasted time.

ROFL! I thought this thread was supposed to be about kindness. What a nasty lot you are! :crackup:
