For the love of all that is holy...

Every Tuesday is trash day at the Nu residence. So, Monday night, everyone in the neighborhood wheels their trash cans out to the curb. It's understood that the condos to the right of us use the curb to the right of our driveway and so we use the curb to our left. Yet, for the past four weeks, some jackass has been parking a van at the curb to our left on the night before trash day. GAH!!!

It's not like these people don't know it's trash day. I've seen the van parked in a condo parking space so it's obvious that the owner stays in one of the condos. You know, we've tried to be neighborly. We used to feed the birds on our back deck but when some neighbors came by to ask us to stop because we were attracting pigeons, we stopped. Now, there's one less type of animal in our backyard petting zoo.

So, what is up with this van business?? Mr. Nonny Nu says I should just be neighborly and put the trash right at the entrance to our drive way. Since the trash guys come by super early every trash day, the trash cans will be empty by the time I leave for work and I can just bring them back in at that time. But, I don't like to block my driveway like that. This is the last time this happens. Next week, I'm putting my trash cans out early and I'm going to use the curb to the right of my driveway. Then, whoever drives that van can get the evil eye from one of his/her condo neighbors. What a jerk. I hate when people are like this!!! My niceness is so tested right now. I repeat, GAH!!!

Didn't you say in one of your scrolls that SS Sociopath moved out of FM's house? Now this inconsiderate van shows up? HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. I'll let Sherlock decipher if these two events are connected.

Nonny Nu is surprisingly passive aggressive this morning.

Next week put the trash bin in the street right in front of the drivers door of the van. I'm sure the trash men (and women) will be extra careful when they fling the can back down with that motorized arm.

Just as careful as the mo-fo that parks in front of your trash curb on trash day.

I'd give van dude the benefit of the doubt, he probably doesn't realize he's parking in your trash spot even if he saw your trash there before... It seems obvious but people are shockingly obtuse. Why don't you leave him a note first and then, if he still does it, a swift "kick" to the headlight with a sledgehammer should do the trick. Or, you could buy one of those orange pylons and put it out the day before trash day with a sign that this spot is reserved for trash collection.

That's what Mr. Nonny Nu said. But how can this be?? He saw my trash cans in front of his car every week for the past month. I thought about writing a note, but Mr. Nonny Nu said no. You know, sometimes I wish he'd bestow some of that patience on me.
