My neighbor parks his 2010 Jeep in front of my house every single day of the year. I know this is commonplace in most dense areas of the city, but I live out a ways where everyone has a driveway and a garage, in fact this particular neighbor has two driveways and two garages that will accommodate three cars. The residents are a nuclear family of four people each with their own pickup or van. None of them use either of their garages. One driveway is devoted to one truck, and the other driveway accommodates another truck and a van, but my road frontage is devoted to a big oppressive black Jeep with a "right to bear arms" sticker on it. I fully support the second amendment, mind you, but rubbing it in peoples' faces is just obnoxious. I used to consider them nice people but now they're just starting to seem like space hogs. At what point does this become considered a nuisance? I really wouldn't care if it weren't for the fact that my picture window faces directly into his truck.Edit
I left out the fact that the truck parked in front of my house every day is owned by a 22 year-old punk kid who has shouting contests in his yard at 3 am when his parents leave town. I've been friendly with them for many years and have known them since the boy was born. (Yes, I also live in my Mom's house that I have since bought. My Mom has long since moved away.) I haven't spoken to the kid for many years, but I occasionally talk to his parents when I'm doing yard work.
I'm really not interested in confronting either resident out of concern that I may incite a Hatfield vs. McCoy scenario. I believe that a confrontation of any sort could potentially create such a scenario. Many of you have advised me in this thread that it is a friendly request to ask him to park elsewhere, but I personally don't feel that it would be friendly in any way. I have no problem approaching people and speaking my mind. I have been known to start fights over people cutting in front of me in line, but this problem just hits little to close to home (no pun intended) for such a brash reaction. If I am going to approach any of these people about this problem I need to know my rights and potentially the rights of the 100 or so school children who are forced to walk around his car into traffic every day.Edit 2:
This brilliant individual has restored my faith in DP and has reassured me that you are not all choosing to participate in the internet hate machine.
Edit 3: I guess I should assume I won't get any helpful information out of DP if I incite a political discussion even though it really wasn't my intention… I assumed everyone would agree about the obnoxious disposition of my neighbor. Besides the two helpful responses I received, everything else has been in regards to some apparent battle of wits or some other political quarrel. I really want to have a sound argument if I am going to approach them. Instead of offering suggestions to support my argument, everyone went off on some rant about me being some kind of "pussy" [sic] who is afraid to talk to his neighbors. If they had read the fuckin' post they'd understand at least that. The internet is so prejudicial and assumptive especially when mob mentality comes into play.
Edit 4: I realize that I later added a lot of information to my original post which has come across as a ploy to make my argument more "valid" [sic], but really I left out a lot of valid points because I hastily posted originally under the assumption that DP was actually a constructive, helpful venue and not the hive-minded mob you have all made yourselves out to be.
Edit 5: Good, will that be all? At least no one has said "butthurt". (yet)
