I am so mad at a neighbor who thinks he has the right to make noise past midnight and park in fromt of our garage. :mad:
You see we live in a typical middle-class neighborhood in the city. Our house has a garage faces the front of the street and have a garden at the back. In one side wall of this garden faces a 3- door apartment where this neighbor and his family lives. Our house and their apartment unit is, separated only by a narrow walkway.
Since, their unit (which they are renting from another neighbor) does not face the street and therefore he has no place to park his car. He and his visitors uses the front of our garage as their personal parking space even though there is already a big sign there that says; PLEASE DO NOT BLOCK THE DRIVEWAY.
Things started to escalate a few months ago when this neighbor had another :shrug: of their midnight (up to around 3 to 4 AM) parties with full music blaring and his visitors staying and conversing very audibly in the narrow walkway right beside the wall of our bedroom (their unit is small so they use the narrow public walkway as an extension of their living room. To think…in the unit next to theirs lives a man suffering from late stage cancer! —they don’t care if they are bothering the sleep of their neighbors, some of whom have jobs to wake up to in the morning----just so long as they and their friends had a great time. My parents were so exasperated because they’ve done this too many times and these people know how we hate not being able to get our good night’s rest because of their insensitivity.
Then last week, his friend parked in front of our garage again. This, too, they’ve done too many times and is the source of dispute between our families.
You see, there have been times when there had been a medical emergency at home and we needed to rush to the hospital only to find out that our garage was blocked. We had to knock on doors just to find out which neighbor (nope this neighbor is not the only ones who park–but they are one of the most consistent ) blocked the driveway. This has become a source of great irritation for our family.
Anyway, last week, my dad got angry because he had to again knock on doors only to find out that this guy and his friend, yet again, were the culprits. He ordered the guy, “Tell your friend to remove his car right now!”
The neighbor shot back, “You can’t wait? My friend was just resting!”
In my mind, Hello? …who are you?..are you a very important, special person that you think you can order us to wait patiently for you and your friend …or think we should ask nicely everytime he does this over and over again or beg for your “kindness” to please, please, vacate our driveway at your own time and convenience. … He wish! :mad:
(Note: the guy claims to be a lawyer…works for agency related to tax collection)
But then, my sister got out of her car and shouted, “Stupid!”
The guy got angry went after my dad. He almost stepped inside our house had his wife not prevented him. My dad didn’t see him because his back was turned. If he so much as stepped inside we would have sued him for trespassing! He went home grudgingly, pulled by his wife, while expressing his anger very loudly.
