Have you had a similar experience with your neighbors?
A woman has criticized her ‘kind and selfish neighbours’ for planning to reserve a specific parking space outside their home, despite there being enough space for two cars on their drive.
Tasha Bonner has taken to TikTok to mock a ‘father and son duo’ who she claims ‘won’t let anyone park in their space’.
In the video, shot from Ms Bonner’s upstairs window on a street in Kent, a man can be seen preparing to flee in his blue car while the driver of a brown vehicle prepares to take over.
‘Here we go again… brown car ready to blast off into space,’ she wrote on the video, which has now racked up 1.5 million views.
And, sure enough, the blue car swerved away at another vehicle that had pulled into the back lot.
Ms. Bonner explained that her neighbors have a double drive but also take a parking space next to their driveway.
She told MailOnline: ‘I think it’s ridiculous and sad that even though there’s enough space for two cars to drive and the road they’re obsessed with this.’
She added: ‘They both live there so they always swap cars to ‘save’ the place.
‘This is the biggest stress of his life. If there is no son to move the brown car, it cannot be released.
‘I want it to come across as miserable rather than stressed out at home. I’m mocking them for having a 24/7 effective system.’
The TikTok video, which has racked up 1.5 million views, shows one neighbor pulling up in a blue car while another waits in the back.
As soon as the first car leaves, the brown car moves forward so no one can park next to their driveway.
‘Curtain twitcher’ Tasha Bonner (pictured) said she posted the video to ‘taunt’ her neighbors about having a ’24/7 effective system’.
In the comments section, people shared their own experiences with similarly petulant neighbors.
One person said: ‘My neighbor does the same… her son lives at the top of our estate but he parks in her driveway so she has an excuse to park on the street.’
Another added: ‘I had one of those neighbours. As soon as one drove off, he ran to his car almost a few meters ahead.’
‘My neighbors leave their drives empty and park 2 cars and a work truck on either side of my drive and ring each other to hold the space when they leave!!’ A third wrote.

But other viewers questioned why Ms. Bonner was so angry, given that neighbors were not blocking her path and parking on the street.
One person commented: ‘I don’t understand what’s wrong? Looks like they just want to park in front of their house?’
‘He made room for his drive? Nothing wrong with that,’ added another.
Another person criticized Ms. Bonner for filming through the window. ‘The biggest screen twitch ever. As bad as your neighbors,’ he said.
Other viewers questioned why Ms Bonner was getting upset, saying it was ‘understandable’ that someone would want to park outside their own home.
