A MAN is trying different ways of parking his car to find the ones that cause maximum annoyance.
Roy Hobbs is taking a rigorous, scientific approach to ensuring his hulking 4×4 causes problems, ranging from slight inconvenience to near-accidents.
Hobbs said: “I’ve always parked inconsiderately, but recently I felt I could be doing more to piss people off. So now I don’t take up half the pavement, I block it completely.
“If I’m parking in a row of cars I like to get right up to someone’s bumper so they have to edge backwards and forwards 20 times before they can pull out. That must make them want to rip my ears off. Fascinating.”
He added: “Another technique is parking my car quite far out in the road behind a bend. That’s great for making people stomp their brakes and use the c-word in front of their small children.
“Tonight I’m visiting a friend in hospital so I’m looking forward to leaving my car in the ambulance bay.”
