My grandmother was just coming up from Florida to stay at her home on our street. The rental property is a rent-by-week vacation home. These people felt they didn't have enough parking with a three-car-garage and a three-car-parking space. So they parked in my Grandmother's driveway.
When confronted, they went: "Well, I didn't know I couldn't park there!"
My mother's response?
"It's somebody else's house!"
Gah. I got this when I was doing a travel assignment in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. My agency put me up in a beach house. I was supposed to share it with two other nurses who hadn't arrived yet (and ended up not coming). The house next door was a rental that a bunch of college guys rented for the summer.
They kept parking in my drive way, sometimes blocking me in when I had to go to work.
I complained every time they did this. Their answer pretty much was fuck off, you don't need the parking and we do.
So I touch base with the local cops who say they can't issue a ticket unless they park illegally on the street . . . but that it's fine for me to call a tow at their (the idiot neighbor's) expense. So I give idiot one final warning and get "whatever" as a reponse.
So idiot gets towed. Of course he's pretty upset. I don't bend. I point out that I am a nurse in the local ER and know lots of the local cops. Idiot realizes he's playing with fire and backs down.
Later in the summer, idiot has some friends over for a party. Several of them park in my drive way when I get home from work. Idiot sees me pull in.
Buddies scamper out of the house to move their cars
