I don't know whether to laugh or cry reading this thread. I can certainly sympathize. Our (new) neighbor has a gutter business- all his trucks and trailers say gutter on it. He parks so his biga$$ stinkin gutter trailer is directly in front of our house. The nice shiny truck is in front of his- the gutter trailer in front of ours-. We will be putting ours on the market shortly- the real estate agent will have to time her pictures so the gutter trailer will be gone- or maybe we will just leave our recycle or garbage can out there- real classy I know..........

I thought most of NJ townships had ordinances that didn't allow the parking of commercial trucks on the street unless they are there performing work?

Commercial vehicles you can complain about, I believe it's parking them overnight on street is usually not allowed.

I once parked in front of someone's house just 2 blocks from the theater because there were no free spots left. When I got out and walked back to the car, the homeowner was standing there and confronted me. He said you can't park here. I looked up and saw the street sign and says nothing about it. I told him, I have every right to park here. The guy said this is his property that he pays taxes. I told him we all pay taxes but this is street parking and I have every right to park here. He was about to have a fist fight with me so I warned him if he really had the right he could've had my car towed because he has no right he is just trying to threaten people.

Wow. What an ass. (I'm talking about the homeowner for talking to you like that.)

Tell him he can pay extra taxes and get a spot in the municipal lot if he feels strongly enough about it.

I mean, that's not how taxes work at all.

"Fire department, can you come over and put my house out first? I Pay Taxes!"

Agreed.....but at least he confronted him face to face.....in some areas you could wind up with a keyed paint job, slashed tires, etc.

Never thought about it that way. You're absolutely right. Haha.

I can understand his frustrations as a homeowner myself but there's nothing he can do about it. Old boomer like him trying to start a fight with me about a parking spot is just pathetic. If I win beating up an old man, I lose in public and if I lost I still lose.

A lot of NJ's boomer population seemed to be that way these days, very rude and always fretting about taxes and urbanization of their neighborhoods.
