Nine More Months: An angry letter to my neighbors.

An angry letter to my neighbors.

Dear Neighbors,

I learned to be considerate to others when I was, oh I don't know, 2 years old. Some examples of being considerate are; holding the door open for others, letting someone who is only buying a couple things in front of you in line, and parking within the lines of your parking spot. You see, when you park over the lines in your designated spot, you are now in my spot as well. There is a pole to the left of my spot, as I'm sure you know, and it is extremely hard for me to get out of my car when I am squished next to it. It is also difficult for me to get my two small children out.

So last night when I came home and I couldn't even fit into my parking spot, I can't say I was surprised. I was, however, kind of angry. But, my husband moved his car into our spot, so I took his.

I guess when you went to your car you had trouble getting into it. Could it have anything to do with how far you parked your truck into my spot? Apparently not. It seems that you thought it was our fault you couldn't get in there. That's why you decided to let the air out of my husband's tire.

How old are you, 12?

Thanks to your immaturity and problem solving skills, I had to drag my two small children out of bed and into the car so I could drive my husband to work. Then I had to deal with those two grumpy children who clearly woke up too early. At 5:00 I will have to drag them out again to pick their father up. Then we have to take the tire off the car so my husband can take it and fill it up with air.

Luckily for you, we don't believe in immature retaliation. But, we have filed a formal complaint against you. And mark my words, next time your tire is even an inch into my spot, I will have you towed.

Spot #23

That was to funny! TFS

That's awesome! And make sure you follow up too. People like that just will never get it. Might I also suggest taking pictures next time you see this happening therefore if anything happens to your car besides letting the air out of a tire you have evidence. I'd say since they are willing to touch your personal property they won't just stop at tires next time.

Way back in the dark ages when I lived in an apartment with assigned parking, I hated my parking spot and my neighbors who parked next to me. I would constantly complain and nothing was ever done. What I started doing was parking behind them, blocking them in my spot. In the event they wanted to go somewhere, they would then have to come get me, wait for me to take my sweet time (at least 10 minutes) and then I would go down, look at my spot ask them why half of their car was in my spot? I would tell them that if I had been able to park in my spot, they would not have had to wait on me. I think this happened a couple of times and then they finally got the hint. It was very frustrating!!

Turns out he didn't just let the air out of the tire, he broke the whole damn valve stem from the tire s it was useless to even fill it up.

Nicole Feliciano said...

Ohh, that would get me steamed.

Leane said...

I don't think I have the good grace to be that patient.
I would want the spike strip my parking spot!
I think tire places will fix the valve stem for you. We asked for it, and our place did it for free (which is amazing).

Good luck in the future!
