Greetings to everyone on this board:
I will cut right to the chase and say that I have a neighbor on my street who owns a beautiful townhouse. She is a very proud home owner which one can tell by the way she keeps her immaculate mini garden. We have have been neighbors for about 3 years and we would occasionally greet each other with a good morning or a good afternoon when we happened upon each other.
The problem started when my car basically broke down in front of her home. When I say it broke down in front of her home I say that it just would not start. This problem has plagued me for about 2weeks and I would sit in my car and wait for sanitation to come by in order avoid an alternate side of the street parking ticket. At this point the sanitation guys know who I am and they basically drive around me and wave.
By week 1 the pleasant good mornings from my neighbor turned into questions revolving around when I was going to move the car. At first I was puzzled because last I was aware street parking was public. My neighbor explained to me t hat the spot in front of her home belonged to her and that I should move my car. I tried to explain to her that my brother(a mechanic by trade) would be coming in from Vermont and that he would fix my car. I further explained that I did not have the money to have my car towed to a garage. By the beginning of week 2 I told her that it would be moved as soon as possible but this was not good enough for her.
By the end of week 2 she was calling 311 on my car but I suspect that the police told her (saw the police checking my car) that there was nothing she could do about it unless I was illegally parked. Yesterday she actually stopped the sanitation sweeper and demanded I get a summons which the operator refused(thank god). This morning I came to my car and the below nasty note was placed under my windshield wiper.
I will be honest and say that I am at my wits end with this woman and part of me wants to leave the car there indefinitely so as to prove a point. I am originally from Vermont and I have never heard about the spot in front of your house being owned by the property owner right in front of it. I am hoping this is the last nasty letter she leaves on my car because if I get one more I will have her arrested for harassment.
Just to be clear my car is not an eyesore and it is a well kept 2003 Camry. There is no reason she would want my car moved from in front of her house unless of course she wanted the spot for herself.
Sorry for the long winded first post but I needed to vent. Thanks for lending an ear.
