There are people that doesn't use that thing that is located inside their head.(BRAINS) Common sense should tell a person not to block someone's drive way. I was looking out my front door and this car was sitting straddle my drive way. I mean dead center with all four tires blocking the entrance of my driveway. There was a lot of room for this person to park their car on the other side of my drive way. I saw a person coming from the resident next door and I asked them to please tell whoever own this car to please move it from directly in front of my drive way. What make a person do this? What were they thinking? I went to the store earlier today to get somethings for my neighbor and this same person that was driving this car was sitting there just doing nothing looking from one person to another. I really think this person is abusing the fact that my neighbor is grieving and looking for a place to hang out. It's time for them to vacate the premises and let the people get some rest. What do you think?

I agree, some people just don't use their brain when it comes to things like parking anc blocking drive ways. I think a lot of them just park so they won't be blocked in and can get out easy when they are ready to leave. This has happened to us many times when neighbors have parties or garage sales. Garage sales are not that bad because people aren't there that long, it is just the thought of it all.

Some people just don't care. :( Around here (in many towns of Massachusetts) in public parking lots, many cars park diagonally across two spaces, as if they're in a showroom. It's asinine and annoying (not to mention illegal!) and one time I couldn't even help writing a note to leave under a wiper ("Nice parking, *******" Yes, I could have shown some restraint...) What were they thinking? Of themselves, that's what. And how "cool" they must seem.

I have a big problem with people who block other people drive ways. The respectful thing to do would be to ask if they could park there. before I moved to where I do now. I always had the problem of the neighbors across stret blocking my driveway or people blocking along the road noone could pull out. To make matters worse. Only one person living in the resident spoke English. Most of the time he was not home. So, I would call up a friend who knew these peopel language. he would stop over and tell them to move. After about 5 times of this happening. I just started calling the cops. As it was a very big inconvience for me.

If they do it again call the police. I would think that they would be smart to know they were blocking the driveway. If they are just sitting in the car staring at people, maybe they are also grieving or maybe they were involved in the accident somehow and are trying to get up the nerve to go up to the house to talk to your neighbor. I would still call the police if it seems out of the ordinary.

i think the reason why people do that is because, they are just curious what will happen if they will park there. or maybe, sometimes that person could be in a hurry and just parked there for a second. or the worst scenario could be,hey just don't use the common sense. or they don't understand the "NO PARKING" sign at all. or simply, they just wouldn't want to. i can't understand myself why some people are like this. it's like they don't have brains to understand the simple sign and it's meaning. their actions were very embarrassing and degrading.

You're right - they don't use that mass inside their heads, neither were they taught consideration and courtesy at school. My neighbor had a friend visiting her, and his car was parked right in front of my gate. No amount of honking brought anyone out - so I had to park my car some distance away, and walked to my house. Just then, my neighbor and her friend came out - no apologies or acknowledgement forthcoming, so I just let go at the friend 'Don't you have any brains? You're blocking my gate.' Both of them were stunned; the guy rushed into his car, and drove away. Nowadays my moronic neighbor and friends would still block everyone's gates, but left mine alone!

You answered your own question when you said "common sense should tell a person not to block someones driveway".. Commons sense is not that prevelant in todays society. It has been replaced by arrogance and irresponsibility. I have tried to do the nice thing and such in similar types of issues, ... but like your situation, they don't respond. It's like they take advantage of nice people because they know they can. Well, this nice person is tired of being taken advantage of. I would have just called the police to at least ticket it. that is all people understand anymore. Being considerate and nice - went out with slouch socks! Brains in their heads? Nah, not these days!

I know what I'd be telling this person and you can pretty much guess as well. I can't stand people like that and I'm afraid I'd say something more than lady talk.

People do not use their brains anymore, especially when driving.. There is no more street etiquette.. Anytime we are going somewhere, there are cars blocking any and all of the entrances and exits from just about any place of business.. Traffic gets backed up because someone is blocking the entrance that they are needing to use.. This makes me mad, do people not think the rules were made for them?? What posesses them to do these things.. I think that it is time someone told this guy to go and park it somewhere else..

I agree with you totally. Here in the Philippines, this is a common thing. My grandmother's house is next to a restaurant and a few years ago, the delivery truck for the restaurant was parked in front of the driveway. The first few times, we had them move it but they'd keep parking there over and over again. One day, there was an emergency at my grandmother's house and when we got there, the truck was parked in front of the driveway again. This time, my dad and my other relatives got really pissed off and a fight broke out. To cut a long story short, that was the last time that delivery truck parked in front of our driveway. Some people have brains but they don't know what it's for. If ever someone blocks your driveway again, and it happens to be the same moron, you should call the cops or some authority figure.

Hi Chevee, They only not have any brains but they are ignorant as well, are they doing it on purpose or something, I'll get some road works cones and put them out your drive so they can't park there any more. Hugs. Tamara
