Does your wife use her car much? If not, why not have her park on the street and you can park your car on the driveway.  Or perhaps by a couple of orange pylons and put them out in front of your lot while your car is away-that may be enough of a deterent for someone looking for a place to park.

Wow... he left a note on my car tonight that said 'Please STOP parking here.'  In front of my own house.

So basically I'm dealing with a huge douchebag who's going to make this simple thing into a big stupid deal.  Why is it so hard for people to be decent?

I forget whether or not you actually tried talking to him, but if you haven't, perhaps you should.  Obviously he doesn't know your car belongs to the person who lives in the house.  If you did talk to him, talk to him again.

Oh, he definitely knows.  I saw him do it and he looked right at me... (this is the first time I've actually seen the guy) I wanted to chase him down and talk to him but I couldn't just run off and leave a 3 year old alone in the house.

I would still go for verbal confirmation. Sometimes people are just dense and don't associate what, to you, would be immediately obvious. Even if you were standing in your doorway looking at him as he parked and got out of the car. Or he would just be passive aggressive about it and figure its fine to do so as long as he knows he won't get confronted.

At the very least, it will force your fellow forum goers something else to suggest AFTER you try the one-on-one talking and it doesn't work.

I agree.  He could have thought you were visitng the people in the house.  He could also just be a complete dick.  You won't know for sure until you talk to him.

Show him the copy of the city code that says his vehicle can be towed (that was this thread, right?).  Though if someone put a note like that on my car in front of my own house, I'd likely also go ahead and call the cops and have them make a visit to inject some reality into the situation and head off any thoughts your idiot neighbors may have of escalating thngs by doing something to your car.  I'd make sure to mention the trash in your yard as well.

Kratz, think very, very carefully on what your next step will be. We just had a big case in Baltimore where an off-duty cop was killed on his birthday over a parking lot in a cramped posh Baltimore neighborhood. The killer was an irate 25-year old who hit the off-duty cop once in the head with a fist-sized rock.

What crack police training! Rocks are tough to see coming, being so small and fast. I guess he wasn't SWAT. Yeah, I'm insensitive.

Insensitive isn't the word I would use.  There's got to be some better way to describe someone who makes fun of a police officer being murdered.  No, I guess you're right.  You're just "insensitive."   finger

Wow, ok, he's officially an asshole... came home from a nice day out with my folks, wife, and kid, and he had left FOUR notes on my car...



I immediately went over there, pretty much shaking with anger... he wasn't home, but I talked to his roommate and left a copy of the law.  Please let this be the end of it... ugh. Sucks to be on edge in your own house all the time.

Is it a private college, or state? Because I went to a private college, which had an ethical code of conduct, which this guy seems to be tiptoing outside of currently. Maybe there's an avenue to put pressure on him that way. And if there is a trend of rotating college students with the same problems in the same neighborhood, I'm sure they'd have a few words of encouragement to avoid hearing from you every semester.

This may be a non-starter, but worth a shot. Good luck.

He still has not actually talked to the guy, though the roommate is a good start. Hopefully word will get passed. However, sitting all this time, being mad, expecting him to know that your car is yours and that it belongs to someone who lives there probably wasn't very healthy for you. You've at at least told somone now, though, so assuming that the roommate passes the messagr on, the issue should hopefully be resolved, though if the roommate doesn't, then you still need to talk to him.

man, that's grade A asshole right there.  what kind of clown leaves 4 notes on another person's car?  he obviously gets that this is a public spot (it's not of course, but he believes it) which means he has no more right to the spot than anyone else, according to his own beliefs. 

that he doesn't get that it's not a public spot is another matter, and one that i would pursue with higher authorities.

He is clearly fucking with Kratz because of his first note. It's sarcasm.
