Move ye car, or walk the plank!

(click on picture to read better)

Kenz and Tyler found this note on their car tonight outside our apartment. We tell them to park in this spot on purpose to annoy our neighbors. Our neighbors requested we move our car over to give them room to park AFTER they sideswiped our car in our parking spot. They deny hitting our car, but the scratches match perfectly (they haven't offered to do anything about it, and Jon is too kind to ask otherwise). Other parking spaces are about 10 feet away from their door, and it's not cold outside. Did I mention they have a full pirate's lair set up outside their front door--complete with hooks, nets, fake weathered maps, flags, coconuts, sand, eye patches, and mugs of mead? I haven't? Well, then. I wonder what these "loads" they take to their car consist of (Chests of gold? Sacks of jewels and goblets? Poop?).

Wait, was this at your apt.? Because I thought you guys have Arizona plates. Is this because Kenz and Tyler are there all the time?

Nothing like a little weird passive aggressiveness. My favorite part is when they ask to keep the spot for those who live there...and then they sign it "The Neighbors Downstairs" which implies that you all LIVE THERE.

i love it. If me and you would have our way, we would go up to those crazies and tell them what's up. but jon and his non-confrontationess, maybe eventually. we are still parking there! everynight! ha ha!

Is this the same neighbor who thought you were moving, and is really going to MISS you? Or will they just 'miss your sister's car? I'm always totally amazed by what goes on in Provo! I love it, but sometimes...

Now it makes sense. Wow, we didn't even do that when we would get blocked out by all the tree-trimming trucks in front of our place and we would have to park down by the Mexicans (Travis was pretty good about keeping them away, though).

Kenz, you guys should leave a post-it on your window every time you park there with a big "AHOYYYY, ye mateys" on it.

I just read this, and I am more than amazed. I dare one of you to buy some blue spray paint and make it into a handicapped parking spot. Then, when they park there and people walk by and notice, they'll get blasted by total strangers. You already lost the spot? So, why not? You could give them the evil eye as well, "Where is your handicap?"

Yeah, if that were me, I'd just tell them to stick it. Lots of people function in a normal parking space all the time. Maybe they should stop hauling so much crap.
