An annoyed homeowner has admitted he won’t let his neighbours and their Christmas guests park on his land – despite having acres of empty space.
The resident took to Reddit to air his grievances.
He says he has plenty of room to host a few visiting cars, but admitted he was stubborn and claimed he “didn’t care”.
In the post, which has now racked up more than 300 comments, the man said his neighbours had a horde of guests arriving over the festive break.
He said they don’t have the space to accommodate all the vehicles that are coming – so they asked if they could use his land instead.
He said: “A bunch of family was coming to their house for Thanksgiving and Christmas and parking was going to be an issue, so they were hoping I’d let them park their excess guests on my property.
“They offered to pay me and also said if their family’s cars damaged my yard they’d come over and fix it.”
However the man refused as he admitted he was worried more charges might incur if he decided to go along with the ask.
This included chance he could be left liable for someone tripping and falling on his property or worse – especially if he had accepted cash for letting the family use the space.
He asked fellow Reddit users if he was in the wrong to refuse to whether they agreed with him.
“I don’t know these people,” he said.
“I bought my land so that I could be all alone on it, so I said no. I could tell they were disappointed and they left without complaint.
“I don’t celebrate the holidays and I don’t know these people so I really don’t see how any of this is my problem or why I should care.”
Reddit users appeared divided as they couldn’t agree who was in the right.
