As I posted above, she probably thinks we're all nuts.

But, hopefully she can differentiate between angry and confrontational, happily confrontational, and just plain angry...

FWIW, being confrontational can be a good thing, especially if you see someone doing something that you think is really wrong. I confront people when I see them throwing trash. I do it nicely, but I do it. I wouldn't want to live in a town where everyone was a doormat.

Me, too. The thread morphed into the "chair" issue.

Try explaining that to the police officer who comes by to pick up your placeholder.

It's understandable if visitors take a space for a few hours. Most people can handle that.

But it's entirely different if a neighbor continually parks in front of a house instead of their own house.

Park in the street, put the hazard lights on, unload and park down the road. You see this practice in neighborhoods around the area all the time.

I can't tell you how many times I've had to do this during the time that I've lived up here. If its an issue where you're physically incapable of walking the distance to your vehicle you should get a permit from the city to have your own handicapped space. Otherwise you're being lazy.

It would be nice if everyone could simply park in front of their own house, but for that to work every building would have to be owned and inhabited only by the nuclear family that lived there. Its not as if the person parking in front of your house is attempting to spite you by not parking in front of their own. Someone is probably parked there already.

Just repeat this over and over until you understand it: "I do not own the road in front of my home"

Good grief. If Pittsburgher's put as much effort into cleaning up the sidewalks in front of their homes after it snows (which they are legally responsible for) as they do in trying to annex the strip of asphalt next to it for their own specific personal use, the city would be a much safer place for pedestrians during the winter.

That's what I was thinking. It's really not that hard to deal with.

Just like in real life, some people suck the fun out of parties.

If she's afraid of confrontation, she knows to not mess with people's chairs now.

In Boston, they allow residents to do this during terrible snow storms, but the city government explicitly states, if they are not removed by such and such a date, they are collected by refuse. That's what should be done here.

I have spent considerable time in every major city in this country and most of the minor cities as well so I feel confident when I say Pittsburgh is one of my favorites. Pittsburgh is one of my favorites not because of the weather or the landscape or the activities but because of the people. I found the people of Pittsburgh to be honest, hard working, blue collar and GENUINE! Great People, great city! One of the best our country has to offer!
