Well that would have been today with nothing much to do (well except a long to do list which I will work on) so I was going to go places I seldom go to but there is a fucking grudge match football game in town and the stadium is near where I live. Can’t get anywhere since the traffic is basically at a standstill and most won’t let us get out of the apt driveway, let alone get over into the far lane so we can flip a U turn. There is a center median strip that is full of illegally parked cars and the game doesn’t even start for 3 more hours. Been backed up since 7am. Bah. Last game of the season though. Fortunately.
At the homecoming game I had to go out, put a cone in front of my parking spot (in a private parking lot for the apartment building and labeled as such, not to mention the spot next to mine has a “resident parking only violators will be towed” sign) and came home to find that some asshole had moved my cone to park there. Had football crap in the windows so no question who had parked there. I’d have let the air out of their tires but then they’d just have been there longer. So I super glued a note to their side window (was tempted to do the windshield in the middle of the driver side) that told them this is a private parking lot (as the big sign at the entrance says) and that spot was assigned. Took a pic of the license. Be interesting to see if they come back today. Tow companies were not towing as I tried to get them towed.
Once upon a time, in a different city and life, a carload of idiots parked in our end of the lot instead of the empty part where the guy who’d hired them as day contract labor had his offices. We left a note on the windshield. The next day, they were back, and we verbally told them not to park there, and pointed at the sign reserving those spaces for our unit. One of them flipped us a bird as they walked off. Somehow, about an hour later, their car was in the middle of the right lane of the street out front.
