Liar Liar, Pants on Fire!

As I was driving home, I approached the driveway to park my car, I saw a big white van entering the drive I share with the neighbours, I waved to the guy that I wanted to park my car, he stopped his van at the entrance and came out and asked me what I want, we had the following conversation :

van driver: what is it?
me: I want to park my car, can you move your van please?

van driver: do you live here?

me: yes I do and you are blocking the drive.

van driver: I live here too.

me: where?

He points at the house next door.

me: but a Somali family live here! (van driver is Asian)

van driver: yes but I own the property.

me: OK but the driveway is for residents.

van driver: I have to park my van in the driveway for 2 weeks as I'm going away.

me: but its too big and will just be in our way, by the way the drain between my house and your property is blocked again, I spoke to your tenants and they told me that you are coming to unblock it, so if you park your van here it will be right above the drain cover and will make your job more difficult.

van driver: what drain? I'm not here to fix anything!

I pointed to the drain and told him that is what he has to do

van driver: actually I am not the landlord, my brother owns this property and I am going to park my van somewhere else.

me: Bye (with a big grin).

Salam Anglo-Libyan,
Why are people so rude and inconsiderate? Shame on this guy. Too bad you couldn't do to him, like the picture you posted in this post.....LOL

The worst thing is when a person insults your intelligence. If I was in your position I will tow his van to teach him a lesson.

I thought he was the landlord as I havent seen him before ( I believed him at first), had he left the van in the drive while I was away, I would call the council and get it towed away :o)

Amerabian said...

Haha! That is so funny.. You should have reminded him to bring his brother to fix the drain before he left..

Anglo-Libyan said...

Wow its amazing how people will lie. Subhan'Allah. People lie so often that now someone will tell me something simple and I don't know whether to believe them or not. Being suspicious isn't good.. but there are just so many LIARS in the world! Astafur'Allah

I am under the impression of your blog.
Honestly speaking i do not like van man, cause very often they show themselves as a rude and ugly fellows. They do not care about others, especially on a road.
I am really glad that you taught this man a lesson.
