Driver gets grumpy letter from baby’s furious parent after shonky park


A driver accused of being an ‘inconsiderate tosspot’ took aim at the author of a fiery letter they found taped to their car in a supermarket parking lot.

The note, written by someone with a baby, criticized the driver for parking too close to the parking lines at the Ballina Central shopping center in the rivers of northern New South Wales.

They said they were unable to get their baby into the car due to the way the car was parked outside the IGA on Monday.

A photo of the car, later shared on social media by its owner, showed it was parked near the passenger side boundary line.

“Learn to park between the lines, not on them. [I] couldn’t put the baby in the car because you parked like an absolute inconsiderate tosspot,” the grumpy letter read.

The woman who received the letter took to social media to respond and implored members of the community not to be so judgmental.

In an effort to set the record straight, she revealed that when she arrived at the car park, another car was parked off-center in the bay next to her.

“The car that was parked next to me was on the lines so I had less room to work – they had to leave before you got out,” she explained.

“Maybe next time [you should] park in the parent’s parking lot [bay]. That’s why they made them.

She called on the person behind the note to consider that there were “bigger problems in the world” and that there was “no need to be rude”.

“Kindness is free,” she added.

The issue then split opinion online, where who was truly wrong was hotly debated.

Some felt that the recipient of the letter should have done a better job of parking.

“Maybe park properly, like between the lines. It’s really not that hard,” one comment read.

“If you park on the line (or very close to it) and the car next to you parks on the line, the cars will scratch each other,” added another.

Others argued there was nothing wrong with the way the woman parked.

“What’s the problem here, she’s parked in the queues? I didn’t realize you had to be right in the middle. It would have been more effort to write the note than just move on” , wrote one person.

“Your car is well parked, I’ve seen much worse. This person clearly has a problem with themselves, people seriously need to wake up,” another said.

Someone else thought posting the letter online was the real ‘tosspot movement’.

One of them asked that everyone “calm down”.

“Screaming abuse is so mean. Calm. Everything is fine,” they said.
