Things they never teach you to teach your kids

This morning, as I was about to go out, I saw one girl parked her car right outside my gate. I know she works next door.
So, I called out to her as she was about to walk to her office. I said, “Excuse me….if you park your car right in front of my house, how am I going to drive in?”
Yeah, she knows I never drive any cars into our driveway. (bcos I go in and out so often so I just drop the car outside my porch) But that’s my gate so it is my territory, no?
She replied like she did nothing wrong. “I work next door.”
So I got pissed already cos she works till late night. Usually she parked a bit further because I have space outside my fence for two cars. But I have three cars so she does take up ‘our space’ though we never make a fuss.
So, my reply was “SO? You don’t expect me to go and call you everytime I want to drive in, do you?” She is probably cursing under her breath, “You bitch, not like you drive your car in. So what if I block your gate?”
But really, my sons’ bikes go in and out of the gate and with a stranger’s car outside my gate, don’t you think that is too much?
Seriously, I think many of us parents have failed to teach our kids many things. For example, being considerate. She sometimes see me struggling with my own backpack, my boy’s school bag and grocery bags. Yet, she would park her car outside my fence, making me parking across the road if my other car took up the gate park.
Any considerate person would gladly leave the space for a mother with a small kid because hey, that’s my house, my territory.
Oh man…I hope she doesn’t piss me again. If she is so afraid of getting summonses, (traffic police does come by sometimes, we kena before), then, for goodness sake, find a more permanent parking lah.
Block my gate again, sure I………
Heh, that’s for me to know, for you to find out.
