Today I received a note on my jeep asking me not to park where I do because they have no place to put their garbage cans on trash day and because they can't back out of their drive way. I'm not blocking the driveway I guess its just close.
(Back ground) I just moved in with my girlfriend a few weeks ago. I've got a truck and a jeep wrangler. We also have a roommate so all together we have 4 vehicles to park. GF parks in the garage. Once we have room for the jeep we will put that in there too but not yet. Either me or my roommate parks in the driveway on one side to leave room for my gf to get in and out because she leaves and comes home first every day.
My initial reaction was annoyance. Its a public street fuck off "2512" if you can't even leave a name. But then I cooled. I don't know his name. He's my neighbor and we haven't met. I think if he's knocked on the door and asked politely I would not have had such a knee jerk reaction. Maybe I'm putting a tone on his letter he didn't intend. So I'm planning to go introduce myself this afternoon and explain that we're planning to put the jeep in the garage as soon as I have storage space. I'll see if there is another place to park it but that is the most convenient place for me to park. If he's nice I'll consider inconveniencing myself for their convenience, to be neighborly. If the tone I put on their letter was the correct tone my jeep will likely stay put. Its a public street and I drive it 3-4 times a week so I'm not breaking any HOA rules.
If they're not there I have a note, with my name and mobile number on it as well as my address, but I'd rather meet in person so they can tell I wrote it with a jovial tone, not vengeful.
Update: They didn't answer the door, although their car was in the driveway. This weekend I got the garage sorted and the jeep parked in there.
