Supernatural: Brothers (from ELAC)

My across-the-street neighbor...

... Is such an idiot.  The guy has a huge pickup truck that for some reason he never parks in his driveway (even though the driveway is huge and can fit at least 2 vehicles in it).  He always parks it out on the street.  He and his family have lived here for more than 6 years and he's done it every day.  Our street is not that wide to begin with, so it takes up a ton of room.  I'm surprised that no one has come speeding around the corner and creamed it.  In the past he's parked it in such a way that makes it hard for us to get out of our driveway.  We've spoken to both him and his wife about it, and he would park it closer to their corner for maybe one day.  Then it was back to the same old thing. 

This morning I wasn't feeling too well, but I had to go to work because I have to edit my resume and possibly speak again to the head hunter about it.  This schoolbus stops at his corner to pick up children and every single morning sits there for 10 minutes at least (I guess the bus driver has a friendly conversation with one of the kids' mothers).  I decided that to avoid them I'd go the opposite direction, turning left instead of right once I'm out of our driveway and going up another block.  Today he's parked right smack up against his driveway, which is just about directly across from ours.  I maneuvered so tightly to try to avoid him, but it was impossible. I ended up tapping his bumper.  I got out, looked at his truck and there didn't appear to be any damage, while I have some of his nice paint on my back bumper, as well as a bit of my paint scraped off and a very small crack.

I was so pissed off.  I ran back into the house and angrily told my mother about it.  I was so angry and I had to get to work, and I didn't know what he was doing (I guess in his house somewhere totally oblivious to this).  My mom just told me to go to work and she'd take care of it.  I didn't want her to have to do that but I left anyway. 

I really think these people believe they're the only ones who live on our block.  How I would love to tell them that that isn't the case.  But they're so stupid I don't think it would do any good.  His wife never even stops for the Stop sign on their corner - she just speeds through it around the corner, every single day.  I can't wait for a cop to catch her, but they're never in the right place at the right time.

I so didn't need this.  This guy has all the room in the world to park his truck, from between his driveway to the street corner. And he always picks the most inconvenient spot.  And the fact that talking to them will do no good makes me even more pissed off.

*sigh* Calming down, calming down.....
