Did you shoot him? Ram his car? What was the result of you being set off like a rocket?

The person in Indiana ended up in New Jersey, apparently.

Try living on a street off of a main road that has a dancing school! lol When that school is in session and all the moms and dads drop off thier little girls there is no parking at all!! We all have driveways here but some people have three or four cars! Now all the cars CAN fit but the driveways are single file, so who's ever in the very front has to get ALL the other cars to move before leaving. So here people park one or two in the driveway the rest on the street. When the school starts it's a parking nightmare for the people on my street including me.

I dont know how old this ads are but I came to this website to see what I could do for the same issue I am going through. I recently finished my lease on some apartments I was renting and decided to rent a house. Well I have been leaving at my new place (house) thinking I would have more freedom now that I was in a house vs an apartment. But that has not been the case. I have been dealing with a flea infestation from the last people who use to live here and just spended another $80 on flea bombs, flea tramps ect... Well now I am also dealing with neighbors are parking right in front of my house and I am very anoyed by the whole thing. The owner of the house has scheduled another pest control treatment for my house for this monday. That's another thing I would like to know can I get a discount on my next rent for all the stuff I have bought to control this infestation? I have all of the recipts. Well no smart comments please I am on the edge of just giving up on trying to live better. That's why only helpful comments please

Wow, all I can say is, no wonder city folks are so stressed out. I have never lived anywhere in my life where all the cars weren't parked in our own garage every night.
I think I would try to get along without a car before I could live with getting up in the middle of the night to move it, or circle the neighborhood for hours to find a space. Awful.

Oh you poor thing. Ask nicely to be reimbursed for the money you spent. The fleas should have been taken care of before you moved in.
Save the parking battle for later, when you stop being cranky from scratching.

my neighbors have a 3 car garage and room for approximately 5 cars in their double wide driveway in back. daily their son parks in front of my house. their workers have told me that they have explicit instructions from the wife to park only in front of the neighbors houses and never in front of the house they are working. they seem to rotate their choices and are equal opportunity insulters to everyone on our cul-de-sac just seldom parking their own cars in front of their house. for years they would have the employees for their illegal daycare park in front of our mailbox and have the kids dropped off in front of my house and then they would walk over to their house. i seem to have had some luck in dissuading them for brief periods by parking my car in front of their house.

It is a public street and they can park any place they d@mn well please. If you have a driveway, use it. If you don't, park in front of someone else's house. There are MUCH more important things in life to worry about.

Agreed. I don't understand why some of these folks are so upset that people park on public streets. Back when I owned a car, I never gave a thought about whose house I parked in front of, you just park where you can. I guess I'm lucky I never parked near the homes of some of the really angry people who have posted in this thread.
