“Each house has a garage, and outside each garage is a driveway for that house.

“My wife parks in the garage, and I park in the outside space because my car can’t fit inside.

“Our neighbours have gone away on holiday, leaving their space empty for three days. Today, I got home before my wife and was parked outside.

“She got home and parked in our neighbour’s drive for half an hour until we moved the cars around so she could park inside because I was busy doing other stuff and couldn’t move my car immediately.

“We then got a message from our neighbours who were still on holiday. One of the other neighbours told them we were parked in their spot.

“They told me that it had come to their attention that one of our cars was in their driveway.

“They said they understood they were not home and their driveway was empty, but it was to do with the principle.

“They said parking there without asking was disappointing and showed a lack of respect.”

Shockingly, the Reddit user thought parking in their neighbour’s driveway was fine.

@u/First-Management-511 said: “I didn’t think it was a problem to park in their empty space for half an hour.

“I’ve even offered my space to all our neighbours when we went on holiday for a week.

However, people in the comments think the user should have asked for permission to park on someone’s driveway.

One said: “Is the spot yours? Most of us learn in pre-school that it’s not cool to mess with things that aren’t yours.”

Another said: “They aren’t home. If it was summer, would you take a lawn chair and sit on their lawn reading a book?

“Hopefully not. So don’t use the driveway.”
