Sometimes You Have NO Choice

I got a sticker on my driver side window today at work telling me not to park there again, that I was parked illegaly, and that I would not be happy if I did it again. So I send an e-mail around stating that:
"If any one EVER touches my car. EVER! I will not take it lightly", and WOULD find who ever did it, as I'm oviously parked in their spot.
"My rego is ******, stay away from it. This is the first and only warning I will give."
I apologised to any one not involved, but I would not tolerate threats, specially aimed at my car. It may not be the newest or most expensive car there, but it's MY car, and I love it. Willingly damege it and I WILL take you out.

Soon after that I received an anonymous e-mail from someone apologising about it.

So, you gunna park there again tomorrow or not?

Don't you just hate how people use the term "illegally" when in reality it is just against their understanding of standard practice.

Like, show me a LAW that says I can't park there.

Hell yeah I'm gonna park there again... as I understand (and I asked my manager about this) it's first come first serve where I'm parked at the moment. So f*** what any one thinks about me parked in their spot, I'll crush anyone that does it again.

Prevention is better than cure. Best not to push the envelope too much in case the car gets damaged. Was it simply a case of taking "someone else's" spot or was your car parked somewhere it wasn't supposed to be?

Our boss at work used to get the sh*ts if someone parked in "his spot", he would park behind them so they couldn't get out. Very petty and immature really, especially from a 60yo senior executive.

I once parked in "someone else's" spot, by accident. I came into the carpark at work one morning (only been there a few weeks) and pulled into a vacant spot. There were only about half-a-dozen cars in the carpark at the time, there was room for a couple of hundred. Next minute this guy comes along and starts abusing the hell out of me for parking in his spot! Reckons he'd been parking there for 20 years or some such thing. There was nothing special about the spot, it was just a bit of dirt the same as the rest of the car park. I told him to wake up to himself and to go and park somewhere else but he wasn't taking no for an answer. So I got out of the car and suggested we settle it the old fashioned way but he soon backed off. Lucky for me as I'm a "lover not a fighter" as Michael Jackson says. I never heard anymore about it and actually became friends with the guy a while later.

You know, somebody actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a little note on the windscreen. It said, 'Parking Fine.'So that was nice.

I realise it's only a parking spot, but I DID check and it's a first come first serve parking spot, so I'm not taking any ones space. I don't care if he/she's there before me, I'll park elsewhere, but I wouldn't go abusing ppl and throughing threats around. That's what really got to me, plus I don't like printed sheets with glue on the back stuck onto my window.

All you have to do is not park there for a few days and see what car is usually in that spot (Holden driver I bet)

And then kick his ass from Melbourne to Sydney and then i will take over.. :)

Mate my earlier post was a bit tongue in cheek - couldn't agree with you more.

you go pearly...if its first in best parked then youve got every right to park there

it would be interesting to find out who was parked there too, although my guess is they wouldnt park there anymore anyway by the sounds of it!

everyone is prob afraid to park there now, so youll be able to cruise in late every day and get a park!

I agree, DON'T park there for a while, and see who parks there most regularly, and approach him/her in person. That way yu'll know exactly who it was.

However, how 'anonymous' was the email? There's probably a way to find out...
