car is stuck :(

My car is now blocked in, i can't get it out from behind the house. They're doing work on the house next to the back access way. They've been using high pressure water and washed away a lot of the access way, so they've dumped a load of gravel / sand stuff in the middle to fill it all in again.

Theres no way i can get my car over that I need a spade to move it all first

Start shouting, then scream, then stamp your feet. If that doesn't work cry like the baby you are.

Re: car is stuck :(

Actually is it not low enough to just scoop the gravel out of the way as you drive?
