hilarious photos reveal the very creative notes angry drivers have left on poorly parked cars

If you’ve ever been unable to park because of someone else’s selfishness, then these pictures will be extremely relatable. 

Amomedia rounded up a selection of notes written by frustrated drivers from around the world, who’ve taken the time to vent their fury after encountering poorly parked cars.

Many of the images show drivers who’ve returned to their allocated parking space only to see someone else’s car in their spot.

While one raging motorist threatened to cover a car in Vaseline and order a tow truck, another claimed they had put a curse on the driver to stop him from finding anywhere to park in the future.

What can we do if we have had no offers on our house for sale?

what can we do if we have had no offers on our house for sale

We want to move home and put our house on the market in July at what we thought was a reasonable price that compared favourably with similar properties.

We have had quite a few viewings and some good feedback but no offers, which is frustrating when we keep reading about a property market mini-boom.

In the meantime, we have seen other similar properties come up for sale and go under offer quickly.

Property clinic: Is there anything we can do to try to get our house sold?

Property clinic: Is there anything we can do to try to get our house sold?

We have a three-bedroom semi-detached house in good condition with a decent garden in a town about 35 miles from London, in an area popular with families.

We’ve seen a number of places we’d quite like to buy but not been able to make any offers stick, because we aren’t under offer ourselves.

Do we just need to be more patient, or is there anything we can do to try to get our house sold?

MailOnline Property expert Myra Butterworth said: By and large, if you’re failing to sell your house, it is often because you’re asking too much money for it.

Sellers often fall into the trap of thinking they know what a property is worth, but it is the buyer who has the final say. They will decide what price they are prepared to pay for the bricks and mortar in front of them.

If the price is right, they will overlook things that they don’t like. And, if the price goes low enough, someone will eventually see through the things that others can’t.

However, in this case, buyers obviously don’t think that the price is wide of the mark as they are still going ahead and viewing the property. This is despite them knowing the price tag well in advance – they are not ruling it out immediately based on price.

But obviously once they view the property in person, they spot something that makes other homes more attractive and you need to find out what this and whether it can be fixed – otherwise you may indeed have to lower the price.

If you listen carefully to the feedback, it may be something that you can remedy quite easily, such as painting over a bright lime front door with a more appealing neutral colour, tweaking room layouts, or doing some simple work to refresh elements of your home.

Another thing to watch out for is that your details online aren’t overselling the property or hiding something that puts buyers off. Rooms made to look much bigger than they are, a house that appears to look out over fields but actually has a busy road by it, or a small garden wide-angled to look huge, can lead to disappointment on viewings.  

James Forrester, managing director of estate agents Barrows and Forrester, said: There’s a wealth of ‘tips and hacks’ that can make your home more appealing to buyers, but the bottom line of a slow sale is often down to price.

The fact that you’re receiving interest is a positive sign that you’ve priced at a reasonable threshold and that your advert is of adequate quality and is being seen by the right type of buyer.

However, there may be an underlying issue that viewers aren’t disclosing in their feedback. This could be an overlooked garden, perhaps the road is just that little bit too busy, or there may be an aesthetic issue deterring them.

Push your agent to dig deeper at the feedback stage in order to find out exactly what the issue is, or take this task on yourself in person at the end of a viewing. Only then you can look to address it, and more often than not, an element of compromise on price could be the answer for a prospective buyer.

A top-line reduction in price via might not be necessary and this should be approached on a viewer by viewer basis depending on their hesitations.

A few thousand pounds less could make that road a little less noisy or cover the cost of that aesthetic change and is a small price to pay to get moving.

A top-line reduction in the asking price via might not be necessary to get your house sold

Buying agent Henry Pryor said: There is a market – you can buy and you can sell but you can’t get a premium price or bag a bargain – at least you can’t yet.

The asking price is part of the marketing, it is designed to get people to come and see the property. Like a price tag on a jacket in a shop it should be big enough for you to feel like you can afford it as a treat, but not too cheap that you worry for the welfare of the children who must have made it!.

If you have been getting viewers then the price has done it’s job and your agent needs to find out why these buyers haven’t made an offer. Have they been getting the wrong people round? 

It doesn’t sound like reducing the price is necessary. What you may need to look at is the marketing. Are the photos giving people a reasonable idea of what they can expect when they visit? Are they finding something unexpected? Road noise? Mess or smell? 

You never get a second chance to make a first impression so double-check that the house and garden are clean and tidy. You want people going away talking about how they would live in the property not remarking about the ring around the bath. 

Be brave and be honest with yourselves. Find out why the people who looking at it aren’t even making a cheeky offer and then take action based on what they say.

Woman reveals she’s racked with guilt from cheating on her husband with a co-worker seven years ago

woman reveals shes racked with guilt from cheating on her husband with a co worker seven years ago

A pregnant woman who is considering telling her husband that she cheated on him has sparked a heated debate on if it can be too late to confess to an affair.

Posting anonymously on British forum Mumsnet, the woman, who has been married for four years, said she slept with a co-worker seven years ago when her now-husband was living in another country and a poor communicator.

But she admitted she now feels racked with guilt and said she was debating revealing her secret to her partner.

Responses to the post were torn, with some arguing it was too late to tell her husband and it would cause immense damage to their marriage.

An anonymous woman who is eight months pregnant told Mumsnet that her husband is unaware that she had an affair seven years ago 

Distraught about her situation, the woman wrote: ‘My husband and I have been together for 10 years. We got married four years ago. Seven years ago I cheated.

‘We were living in different countries at the time and it was a difficult year for me. I missed him. 

‘He’s not a great talker on the phone and I fell for someone who I was working with at the time. My husband doesn’t know and I feel guilty about it a lot.

‘I’m 8 months pregnant and love him more than anything. Should I tell him?’

Urging the woman to stay quiet, one person wrote: ‘Only tell him if you want to do permanent, inseparable damage to your marriage. Otherwise get counselling and put it behind you.

‘This is about you, not about your husband. You should have told him before your married and given him a choice. You didn’t. Get over it and focus on the future.’ 

Another said: ‘Do not be so b***** stupid, if you want to make some sort of amends give a decent whack to some woman’s charity and move on!’

Others argued the husband had a right to know about the affair and warned the woman’s secret would eat her alive.

Many responses to the post warned the woman that she shouldn’t tell her husband about the affair because it will cause incredible hurt 

‘I am stunned the amount of people saying not to tell him. You cheated and lied. He deserves to know,’ wrote one.

Another said: ‘If it’s eating you up inside I would. I kept a similar secret for years and it sunk me into depression. Eventually I admitted everything, he forgave me and we worked on moving on. Very happy now, totally forgiven and forgotten and I no longer feel sick and depressed.

‘But you do risk that not being the case and him leaving. So you have to weigh up the benefits and cons. I couldn’t live with the guilt even if it mean’t him leaving me. Can you?’

A third added: ‘Of course you have to tell him. Why would you have married him when you were hiding a lie like that? He has a right to honesty in his life. It’s then up to him if he wants to continue the relationship.’

Fur sales will be BANNED in Britain once the country leaves the EU

fur sales will be banned in britain once the country leaves the eu

Fur sales will be banned after Britain leaves the EU’s single market and customs union in December under proposals being drawn up by ministers.

Lord Goldsmith, the Government’s animal welfare minister and a close friend and political ally of Boris Johnson and his fiancee Carrie Symonds, is understood to be spearheading the move.

The Government is considering plans to prohibit the import of wild animal fur into the UK that would essentially forbid the sale of clothes containing fur in shops after the transition period.

The change would affect imports of nearly £200million of fur and fur-based products every year, many of which come from mainland Europe.

Defra — the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs — is expected to publish a consultation paper after the transition period ends this year.

Leaked Defra documents seen by The Daily Telegraph showed Lord Goldsmith met with the executive director of anti-fur organisation, Humane Society International, on May 12 in which he asked if there were any particular areas, in relation to the fur trade, that the Government should research.

The peer called the fur trade ‘one of the grimmest of human activities’ in 2018 and said the Government is ‘very keen’ to take action against it post-Brexit.

‘We have some of the highest welfare standards in the world,’ Lord Goldsmith told The Mirror last year. ‘Fur farming has rightly been banned in this country for nearly 20 years and at the end of the transition period we will be able to properly consider steps to raise our standards still further.’

The Defra minister has also argued that Brexit meant that ‘whatever barriers may have prevented us from raising standards on imports at the point of entry will have gone’.

‘We will be free to decide whether we want to continue to import the proceeds of one of the grimmest of human activities,’ he previously said.

Last year, Ms Symonds blasted people who wanted to buy fur as ‘sick’. She has also campaigned against whaling, and reportedly swayed Mr Johnson in his decision to axe a proposed badger cull in Derbyshire.

Fur farming was banned in 2003 but the UK still allows the product to be imported from overseas and France is one of the biggest suppliers.

Ministers believe a move to ban fur would buy hugely popular, with opinion polls indicating that around 80 per cent of Britons think the trade is unacceptable (pictured, protesters stand in front of British Fashion Council show space during London Fashion Week)

Under the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement, fur could still be imported into Northern Ireland.

Ministers believe a move to ban fur would buy hugely popular, with opinion polls indicating that around 80 per cent of Britons think the trade is unacceptable.

However, the British Fur Trade Association, which represents importers and sellers, has said it will lobby against the ‘irrational, illiberal and misjudged’ proposed ban.

In a report available on its website, the group said: ‘Sales of natural fur in the UK have increased in recent years and are popular among younger age groups, as environmentally conscious consumers increasingly reject the mass-produced non-renewables epitomised by the fast fashion crisis and search out long lasting, sustainable natural materials.

‘Yet, animal rights groups are now actively and vocally lobbying the British Government for fur sales to be banned in the UK using selective data, arguments and anecdotal evidence.

‘Such shrill voices, of course, do not represent the ‘silent majority’ who do not support such a ban; opinions that should not be ‘cancelled’ but recognised and respected.

‘Those that shout the loudest seldom have the support of the majority or their moral backing.

‘Although they would never admit it, such groups would achieve their aims far better by working with the organised fur sector to drive up standards as cooperative models in other sectors have shown.’
