Inconsiderate drivers and woes of poor car parking

It was an hour past my usual lunch time. As I stepped out of the office towards my car, I noticed there was a car on the street that was blocking the way. There was absolutely no way to take my car out. I asked people standing in the tea shop and those in the area – the car belonged to none of them. That’s when I noticed (see the red arrow in the picture) a hand-written note saying “Driver 9xxxx xxxxx”.

Calling him, he came rushing and said “I am sorry, I had to rush for lunch, hence I stopped here“. For which I asked, “by blocking the way, you have delayed my lunch?“.

So careless of others. Still, I didn’t have the heart to scold him more – one, it is pointless to argue with idiots; second, he at least had the courtesy to display his number.

Do you agree with me (or) what you would’ve done differently?
