    Luckily I have great neighbors at my new place but the house directly across the street has 4 adults living there. Each has their own car and two park in the driveway, two in the street right in front of their place. Fine with me although they pissed me off one night when a friend was over and parked in front of their place (we have tons of parking on our street so finding another spot isn’t an issue). One of them got home and approached my friend who was put front at the time to ask him to move his car as he was in his “spot”. I get they usually park there but I would never ask someone else’s guest to move a car from a non designated spot. The neighbor could have parked right in front but he didn’t want to be under the redwood tree next door.

    Had a worse parking issue at my old place. Lived on a narrow busy street between two mobile parks and an apartment complex. Also I was one of 6 duplexes on our block. Parking was a PITA and anytime after 6 meant parking on another block. Our place had one driveway spot and a space large enough for two cars if you squeeze. My neighbor had parking for 6 cars alone (only had one car).
    Well he decided it was his mission to paint 6ft of the curbs red on either side in front of his house and the neighbors across the street (his friend who had parking for 7 cars) because they didn’t like how crowded it was on the street. Pull up one day to him with a spray paint can having his way (illegal) and he tries to act like I’m on his side. I was furious but had to be cool since he was a great neighbor and always helped me and my wife with stuff. Someone ended up calling the city on him and got them repainted.

    Couple years later he moved out and the neighbor across the street resumes the battle for removing parking. Gets the city to repaint the curbs red legally, screwing me over with my long bed tundra. He also would monitor the red and would call the police to ticket if the person was 6” over the red. Real PITA for an already horrible parking situation. Finally moved away and this last year he got the city to close the entire side of the street on his side to parking. So happy I’m out of that place. Always makes me happy being able to pull into my driveway each night and not search for a spot.

    I got a couple stories (not too bad, but laughable)

    1st story


    Picture about sums it up.:rimshot:
    He was a pretty cool neighbor (Lived there in the middle of town for just over 2 years after I got married). It never bothered me (he was good and played a lot of AC/DC, Eagles, etc. :headbang:), but he kept a drum set on his front porch during the summer months; (surprisingly nobody ever stole them given the amount of druggies in that part of town) that he would play along to the music he would blast (mostly on the weekends).

    2nd story


    Fast forward and we moved ~4 years ago into my parents old house (on the nicer side of town where all the doctors & lawyers live. Plus my in-laws, they like me better than their own daughter :D, are a block down from us), but the one side of the duplex next to me was rented at the time (the other side moved out because of them). They too were your typical druggies (only ones in the neighborhood) with different people/vehicles coming and going at all times of the day. The cops had them under surveillance (they were only little fish) but only got called when the kids got left out/alone a couple times (No CPS:notsure:). No real violence other than a screaming match that they had once outside. After about a year living there, one day when they weren't home and I was sitting on the front porch, their 2 dogs got loose by breaking through the screen on a window left open (3rd floor dormer on the front of the house). The first dog bounced off the front porch roof and fell to the ground (it was fairly nice dog and I was able to grab it and tie it up at the back of the house). Meanwhile the second dog follows the first, but doesn't jump down to the porch, but walks out onto the roof and keeps looking over the side for his pal. It went back inside and came out a few times, but finally gave up looking and went back inside (thankfully before something bad happened to it). One of my other neighbors came out and knew the landlord (I guess) and called them. The renters got kicked out a couple weeks later (because they were not supposed to have pets) and the landlord hasn't rented it since, but uses it himself from time to time.

    Should have made it 1085. :rofl:

    Yep, I just hit this point last week. My upstairs neighbor used to be like a ghost, but they moved, and now I must be living below what I can only imagine is a kettle bell crazed crossfit enthusiast. Burpees and Kettlebells rattling the walls for a good hour every night. then plays fetch with her dog at like 1130. The sound of dog nails on hardwood floors really travel.

    update to the restraining order.

    I served the woman Friday night. Yesterday morning the in laws caught two of her friends driving down the street and parked at the end and got out and looked around quickly then got in and left. A bit later another friend drove up did the same. Then later the 2nd vehicle driver walked down the street with her dogs staring at the house. Hour later returned and left a note from the person with the restraining order in their mailbox and left.

    Police were called as its 0 contact, whether by 3rd party and/or letter. Police visited her house and were going to arrest her for violating the RO but my MIL said just cite and release her to show her this is serious and to stop being stupid.

    Personally i would have just had her arrested and let her deal with it and learn the hard way.

    lets see what today brings.

    EDIT: all on their personal cameras which the footage was handed over to PD.

    PD also visited the first two parties as well and told them to cut the shit, you're being watched.

    Maybe she’d like a workout partner. Bet that’s a compromise you could live with.
