Dude, I have an SUV, an old Honda Accord work car and a bike too. But I have 1 assigned parking spot. The bike and the SUV fit in my assigned spot and the car just gets parked wherever I can find an empty spot. I'm lucky cause I know both ppl that park next to me on either side.

One guy I met during packing for the hurricane and he was leaving and let me use his assigned spot if I needed it. The other one is a good looking chick that cut me off on my bike as we were both exiting the freeway one late night. Well, we both ended up driving to (almost) the exact same spot and she thought I was following her cause she cut me off. She was scared to get out of her car! When I parked my bike, she recognized it was always parked there and apologized....

Nope, I didnt get her number...

Someone parked in my assigned once. I left a note on the windshield with the number to the wrecker company. I told them to keep it cause they would need it the next time they decided to park in my spot!

There was alot of empty parking around that day anyway, and it was actually closer to my apt than my assigned.
Now if they had done it again...

That was my initial thought, too.

I thought about it a little more and really, he's occupying the space with his bike. Just because he's not occupying much of it, doesn't mean someone else has the right to take what's left of it.

That's why I recommended TAKING more of the spot, so someone won't try to squeeze in. A motorcycle has every right to use up an entire spot as a car does.

You should do that. That ticket is totally avoidable.

+1 on that... it's funny because it seems the circus was too much drama because of what certain members brought to it, but like this is just fine to overlook.

I do respect the rules of the forum so I will leave it at that, but it seems like the policies around here have just become odd, to say the least.

Back on topic, good for you blocking that stupid bia in. I would've been so angry that bad things probably would've happened to that car if it were that close to my bike and I definitely wouldn't have wasted time parking behind it and would've just called the towing company right away instead. Either way, hopefully they learned their lesson and have fun paying the impound and wrecker service fees.

Dont have a garage to park it in, and i keep bumping the fairings and mirrors on the door jam bringing into the apt, so far now i just chain it to the poll, but hopefully with all the other bikes at the apt mine is the most protected so far and when the others decide to lock theirs up ill just put more than them either way i put i bid in on a new house in P-land so hopefully i get it.

Unless you own that parking spot (pay for that specific spot), what you did was very contradictory to your actions. Seeing a car block you in you off. To solve be problem, you became a hypocrite and did exactly the same thing. Regardless if whether your bike was blocked or not, I feel what you did was very pointless considering that it DID bug you how you got blocked in. Be mature about situations like this and handle it properly. You were upset and someone blocking you in, so don't do the same, get the car towed.

Yes, she pulled a move of blocking your bike in, but you pulled a move as well by blocking her in. As much as your calling her a bish, it makes you just as much of a bish.

Now if the case is that you own that parking spot, then I take ALL of that back. I went to my brothers apartment complex and there was someone parked in his spot that he pays for. He called the towing company that second. He said he doesn't even care if there are open spots around him, every one of these spots are paid for, and he is not paying $120 a month for someone else to park in his spot, hes paying $120 a month so he can park there. But if it is YOUR parking spot that you pay for, then do what ever the you want to the car.

I feel your pain brother. I had a similar situation.. I have a nice little parking space with a tree in the middle of it, which prevents cars from fitting *at all.* I have been parking my bike there undisputed for almost a month, and it stayed vacant for almost a year before. Now some **** drop pulled her H3 in the middle of the space taking up my spot, plus half of another, and pulled her second car in the other half of the full space, which makes her taking 3 spaces for 2 cars. Especially since the appt manager agrees the Tree spot should be for bikes.

His bike was parked there so he 'owned' the spot.

Looks to me like he did them a favor by not having them towed immediately.

I would have done worse.

I'm concerned about all the anger, and retribution.... bad karma.

I just wouldn't be out there expecting everyone else in the world to know or be required to care about what to them might be some obscure unknown 'code' of parkinglot etiquette.

I know it was obviously a hassle, that is, if you needed to get your bike out... did you need to get your bike out? Or were you mad because you 'might have' wanted to get your bike out and wouldn't have been able to....?

two wrongs don't make a right, especially when you are more wrong than the other person.

StunterDude - I'm doubting you would have ' all over the windshield'...

And do you really want to ruin someone's day, and maybe their pocketbook, by having them towed when it's really not necessary, really? Where's the community in that Cashtown?

K for being mature about it I'm sorry should have just instantly had it towed, but what fun is that? I would much rather see their face in the morning being when they can't get out of the spot that was already occupied by me! I mean seriously they are gonna have a bad morning either way. I mean option A they wake up to no car or option B they go outside to see they are blocked in and I make it a point for them not to do it again. Plus I can have fun with option b, and as stated by the leasing office I had every right to have them towed immediately since the spot was occupied by me. Was In the right to do what I did? Its debateable. But she had no right to squeeze into a spot that was already occupied by me, I just chose to have some fun with the situation at someone elses expense. Also I understand actions and reactions, she acted on taking an occupied spot which cost her a tow, I took action that could result in her reacting to my property and so I am prepared if she or anyone else acts. So for the people that I in their cheerios because 2 wrongs don't make a right, that's just like your opinion. I don't believe in an eye for an eye I believe in two eyes for an eye.

on the other hand, you could've taken a step back, realized that making a situation worse by enjoying someone else's pain is sucky and shameful, and chosen to take the high road and try to be decent about it instead. Maybe you could've left a note about it for the future.

Who cares whether she had the right? Are trivial things like that really that important to you? Don't you have anything better to focus on? And the other driver had to pay hard earned money that probably needed to go for food or rent or something important???

I'd say grow up, chill, park correctly, be kind.



Life's better that way.
