Well, now it's going beyond the doorstep.
Since I moved in here, I would occasionally notice a beat up vehicle (Ford Escape I think -- it's too far gone to tell) downstairs. This vehicle never had a parking tag, and would always be parked under the covered parking (which is assigned). I thought it was rather bold of them, and was just waiting for the day that they parked in my spot.
I got home from work today around 4:00, as usual, and tried to park in my own space. The thing that made it difficult though was this pile of crap double-parked in my spot and the downstairs neighbor's spot. I knew I'd be leaving again in a bit to get groceries, so I didn't sweat it.
Before I left to get groceries, I decided I had better be prepared in case that car was still in my spot. So, I wrote a note that went something like this:
I would really appreciate it if you did not park in my spot, unless you happen to have a parking tag for it. Please don't park in my spot again, or I'll be calling the leasing office and you'll likely be towed. -- The tenant who has the right to be parking in this spot.
I took this note with me, folded in half, and walked down to my car. On the way, I noticed that the jalopy was still in my space, so I left the note under their windshield wiper. When I got back from getting groceries about an hour later, both that vehicle and the station wagon that belongs to the tenant next door were gone.
Since then, someone has come back and turned the loud music on again. It's Friday night and I'm cool with that, especially where I was watching a movie turned up a little loud. I'm just waiting for that music to continue past 10:00PM tonight though. I have to work at 7:00AM in the morning, and if I can't sleep because they've got this wild hair about it, I'm going to be a bit upset.
I'm also looking forward to tomorrow morning, when I find out my tires have been slashed, my windows busted out, or graffiti sprayed on my car. That's what insurance is for, but I will most certainly be filing a police report if that is the case... and I'll be late for work because of it.
If you are late you best be bringing in pancakes.

How about waffles?

Waffles are pancakes with syrup traps.
