  •  I share a driveway with the house next door (11+ / 0-)

    There was someone who moved in who insisted on parking on his half of the driveway and thus blocking it for me unless I wanted to drive up over the curb and the yard.  You can't park on the street in front of the house, either, and they didn't like my knocking on their door to ask them to move their truck so I could pull into my garage (not accessible from behind the house through the alley).  In fact, they disliked my going to knock on the front door that they didn't answer it and I went away.  Then the police knocked on my door, having been called by my neighbors to head off a confrontation.  huh?  I was confused.  So was the cop.  Eventually they went away and there were signs on their door from the city water dept and the electric company stating the utilities were going to be turned off for lack of payment.  Before the next renters moved in, I had a sign made that states "Shared Driveway; do not park in driveway"
    and then the loveliest neighbors (Mexican immigrants) moved in and there have been no problems.  I want them to stay for ages.
