Thank you. Thank you. Our block has already improved (well, psychosematically anyway, since we're feeling more proactive and involved).

Walking around a parked car? Ridiculous! How on earth could a ped do that? Not in my city! Fight for injustice!

F##k the parking cops! My neighbor has a grudge against me. My wife is a paraplegic, and I have to extend my bumper out from my driveway to unload her and CARRY her up the stairs to my house. This particular day, she messed herself while I was carrying her up the stairs. I had to clean her and myself up, and di not get back out right away to pull my truck in,
Sure enough the lady who hates me called parking control (This lady baby sits several parking officers children and is friends with them)
and 26 minutes later I had a ticket.
Oh and by the way I measured it, and my bumper was a HUGE ten inches onto the sidewalk. These people should all rot in hell, and all thier children should become quadraplegics so they know the s##t
I have to endure.
