Good evening, it is Thursday.
Guess what came in the mail today?
I am usually not overly negative. I usually don't let little things bother me too much. While I can argue viewpoints with the best of them, I don't go looking for actual fights. But our new neighbors are pushing me to the edge! And it is all about something as petty as parking our cars in front of our own houses. Most of us who have been in this culdesac for like 20 plus years all have kids and multiple cars. We always park extra cars in front of the sidewalk, but never block anyone's driveway. Besides, cars move around so much, that a parked car is only there for a short time anyhow. Well, our new neighbor (let's call him Ken) with only one SUV, a huge driveway, and a garage he parks in, is insistent that he can't get into his driveway or garage if any car is within 5 feet of the edge of his drive. For the last couple of months he has been leaving notes on the window of any car parking in front of his house. I've been the recipient of a few of these notes:
And there's my rant. I have not decided how to proceed on this. When I talk to him in person I just get enraged, so I'm avoiding doing that. I don't really want a ticket, and realistically if he calls the police, that could happen. Maybe I will beat him to the punch and file a harassment charge against him. But that is petty too. Maybe I should write a note and put it on his car (when he parks it there) warning him of the horrible neighbor who is threatening to call the police. While enjoyable, that would be a dork thing to do. So I guess the answer is nothing. A big nothing. And of course, feel bad for the guy. It takes a lot of energy to be so mad all the time. And that's my rant. Thanks:)
See you tomorrow.
