    I pay to park in a private lot on Wellington St, and I'm there M-F 8-4. My person is great, the price is great, the spot is great but people keep effing parking in my effing spot and it's pissing me the eff off. :pissed: I don't even care if someone uses it at night and on weekends - but get your ass out of my spot by 7:30!

    3 times in January and again this morning. I then have to scramble to find more pay parking, email my person and give him the car info, he calls the landlord and they go to tow it but in the meantime, offending car leaves.

    Today I left a note on the windshield, in addition to the above. Ideas for next time? Besides slit in tire? Cause I'm almost there.

    :pissed:

    P.S - People who don't wait for passengers to get off the elevator before they get on really piss me off too. I nearly kicked someone this morning. Grumble.

    Leave a note that reads....
    Which is cheaper? Paying for your own parking spot or a new windsheild?

    Tack the note to their car with a pick-axe.

    I like your style. Maybe we should start a vigilante group of parking enforcement and help foreternity with her problem :rofl:

    Great ideas but if you are telling them they are parked in your spot they might know where to find and/or your car :kekeke:

    If they retaliate we just use a bigger more horrible pick axe?

    agree'd take in your own hands

    who ever is parking in your spot doesn't give a fuck, so make them

    My boyfriend and I are having the same problem. Sometimes random people will park there, but there is one car that must belong to someone who lives here, or is here ALL the time who just refuses to park in the TWO visitor areas. She parks in our spots all the time and we've left 2 notes already. Got home last night and she was in my bf's spot. I don't care if it's snowy and you can't see that you're AGAIN parked in the spot #'s we told you are taken, go park in VISTOR! There are 10-12 visitor spots and they're very rarely full.

    I plow the parking lot where I live, as my landlady doesn't pay to have it done. I came home the other night and plowed just my parking space as all other spots were occupied. I slept and went back to work the next morning for a few hours. When I get home my neighbour was parked in my spot because it was the only plowed spot. All the other cars were gone by this point so I plowed the rest of the lot into a nice tidy snowpile behind their car, and I left their spot unplowed.

    Step 1: Buy valve stem tool.

    [​IMG]

    Step 2: Remove all valves from valve stems on the tires (they just screw out)

    Step 3: Tires go flat, cannot be re-inflated without replacing valves.

    Step 4: Leave the valve stems somewhere on the car where they won't necessarily look (like right at the bottom of the windshield by the wiper), or on the trunk lid.

    Step 5: Tow the car, because they couldn't escape.

    I had a pick axe in the back of my car after someone at work hit my car and left. I was literally going to to leave them a note if the fucking stupid security cameras would've worked :pissed:

    People used to park in my assigned spot at our apartment, I block them in, park right behind them.

    Complain more to the person you rent from. If you pay to use that spot from 8-4 make his/her life a living hell until that spot is constantly available to you during that time frame. Or start deducting money off what you pay them for the times when you have to pay to park somewhere else.

    The problem is you cant damage the car, or tires. So why not just do something else? Go early and if there is a car there call the police yourself and have them towed, that way you can wait and park behind them. I do love the grenade idea though, if only.

    I thought only the land owner can get parking tickets issued on private property? Could be wrong.

    Yeah, landlord had to call the police and they came out and issued a ticket. Towing was to commence within one hour. I'm not sure if I would have been able to call directly - although I do have a written permit to park there :shrug:
