Re: Virgin media , blocking drive ! ๐Ÿ˜ก

if you asked them nicely to move there van out the way they will do it.
if you asked them nasty to move the van out the way they will not move it.

ask them nicely to move there van out the way in person they will move it away from your driveway

Seriously, there is no excuse for parking across a driveway, just laziness. I presume that you do it regularly.

Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team).

Depends really, without seeing the road layout its impossible to say if they were lazy or really did have no other choice, if there isn't any other space on the road you can't really expect them to park nowhere near where the work is being carried out

You keep advising to ask them to move but if you read the post they have said it was WORK BEING CARRIED OUT BY THE DRIVEWAY not just a VM van parked there!!!

Well if the work was blocking it thats a different issue, and not something that can be dealt with, they have to dig their holes, its not like they can just choose to dig it further down the road, they have to work where they do, sadly there isn't much that can be done about that Smiley Sad
