Default Is it wrong

They're doing serious road work on my street laying new gas lines, etc. - a several month project. As residents we've been told not to park on the street after 7AM when they're working on our section and that we may not be able to get out of our driveways. We live close enough to the train station that people will park on our block because the train lots are full.

Fast forward to today and they're shredding a trench on our block. Is it wrong that I hope they wreck the car belonging to the train idiot who thought he should park on this block when NO other cars were on it?

It is wrong to hope they wreck it. But I think it is perfectly acceptable to hope the tow truck leaves big scratches and rumples the bumper when they tow it away ...

What a nightmare for you and your neighbors!

I think it's okay to accept that a car that should not be parked there gets towed or wrecked. I mean, really. That person couldn't see and then wonder why their car was the only one on the block that day?

Yeah, wrecking is harsh, lol. Turned out not to be a train person because about a minute after I posted that I saw some woman running out to it. Mind you, the road scrambler had already gone past her car...
