....also, people need to learn how to RESPECT THE CHAIR!

Unless you don't want your car to be egg'd (and trust me when I tell you, that's the minimal punishment on my street), you should RESPECT THE CHAIR!

Do you think people like myself, who will remove your ILLEGALLY placed chair, aren't observant enough to not notice which house its sitting in front of? Which do you think is more expensive to fix: damage to a car or damage to your home? As a homeowner myself let me tell you that the person living in the structure has exponentially more to lose. If you're renting its going to **** your landlord off when he has to replace a broken window in the middle of the winter, IF he feels like replacing it quickly in the first place.

Unless there's a pile of snow and you spent hours digging your spot out, you need to quit being lazy and deal with the parking situation like everyone else on your block. If you're physically challenged have the city put a handicapped spot in front of your place. If one of my lazy former neighbors can arrange to get one I'm sure that you can too.

I feel 'some type of WAY' about people who are lazy and would damage the property of others after they illegally block the road with their own.


If you need the spot because you're physically challenged, contact the city and have them give you a handicapped license/spot in front of your house.

You can be the jagoff who moves into a new place and wants to change it or you can assimilate to the local customs.

This is not NJ. If you want NJ rules, perhaps you should stay there.



Then why not move back to Virginia?
Pittsburgh would be a better place if people assimilated instead of bucking the established system.

See comment above but exchange NoVA for NJ.
How did I miss this post? I wholeheartedly CO-SIGN every word!

RESPECT THE CHAIR!

I believe I posted something similar to this the last time the chair issue was discussed, and I don't recall anyone stepping up and giving an answer...

The chair isn't there necessarily to reserve a specified physical space, as much as it is there to protect the labor that went into clearing that space. I'd love to hear one of the anti-chair contingent make a reasonable justification for depriving a neighbor of the fruits of their physical labor in clearing the snow from a given parking space, or convince me that when you move the chair and park there, that isn't exactly what you've done.

Oh geesh,

I didn't mean to start a fight.

It was just "Respect the Chair" and "Hate Rt 28" were the first things my cousin taught me when I moved down here.

And trust me....

Hating 28 became natural after having to drive it every morning to RIDC.

I doubt chair owners would care if the chair is egg'd. I've never seen a nice parking chair.

Most places seem really cool when you're just a vistor. That's because they don't know you yet, and you haven't had enough time to adjust. Once you're in a place for a while, at least 6 months..you start to see the good, bad and ugly, and that's when you can make a genuine opinion about the place. (Usually). There are exceptions. And sometimes first impressions end up being the truth. It depends...but I hear a lot of negativity on these boards about EVERY STATE AND EVERY CITY THERE IS.
NO PLACE IS PERFECT. Its about what works for you and your family.

Hey,

That's not fair. The Carnegie Museum of Art actually did a parking chair exhibition in honor of the proud Pittsburgh tradition a few years back. They took confiscated parking chairs from across the city, and local artist painted them, then they sold them for a fund raiser.


There were some pretty impressive and awesome looking (not to mention hysterically funny) chairs up for auction.

Long live the chair!
