An encounter with Belligerent Bill this week – my first since the angry email I sent, lambasting his hypocritical, self-imposed parking rules.
He was polishing his car in the visitor space that I often use and – astonishingly – actually waved chummily to me as I drove past.
Avoiding eye contact, I parked up and scuttled sheepishly to the door.
‘Katy!’ he called cheerily, clutching his chamois leather. ‘You can park back here if you want. I’ll move my car for you.’
‘It’s okay…’ I said. ‘I’m going back out shortly…’
Move his car for me? Really? This seemed extraordinary behaviour coming from the meanest, most selfish man on the planet to whom my last words were, ‘Please don’t bother me with any more of your silly messages and practice what you preach…‘
I smell a rat.
He probably wants to lure me back in with his crocodile smiles before smothering my front door in 100 ‘NEVER PARK HERE’ Post-It notes.
Well… Bill, my friend, two can play at that game.
