Police in the British Surrey County who responded to an emergency call are less than pleased with a local resident who put an angry note on their parked police car.
The Reigate and Banstead-stationed members of the Surrey Police Force respinding to a child-endangerment call found a scathing note on their vehicle shortly after they parked in a residential driveway.
“NOTE!! PARK YOUR POLICE CAR OUTSIDE,” the note read, “THIS A PRIVATE PARKING!!”
The resident later told the R&B Police -who explained why they parked there- that their excuses were insufficient.
“I don’t care, it’s not my emergency,” the resident reportedly said, according to the agency’s Facebook.
In true British fashion, R&B-Surrey responded with a dry and witty retort.
“We apologise for our inconsiderate parking during a potentially life or death situation and we will try and be more aware next time,” the agency wrote.
The post has been shared nearly 1,000 times since yesterday morning and has resulted in a lot of support for local police.
“This is the main reason why I could never have been a police officer,” Christ Highton commented. “How on earth do you keep your cool? Respect.”
Others noted that the individual so riled up over a parking space might benefit from going back to school.
“Attending school to study proper writing might be a better use of energy,” Antionette Kruger wrote.
Reigate and Banstead has a population of around 144,100.
