Roommate revenge on wheels

June 15th, 2010 · 61 comments

Heather saw this car parked in her Takoma Park, Maryland neighborhood, while Heather spotted the truck below in New Orleans. Perhaps Stephanie and Michael can form a support group with Rene Hall?

Stephanie [redacted] appropriates other people's property and destroys other people's belongings

      Unless the painter is planning on frying and eating that truck, it’s tempera paint.

    Vandalism is pond-scummy. But I have to admit I like the car-top sign (assuming that it is on the accuser’s car, not the target’s). No revenge is so satisfying as damaging your enemy’s ego.

      I saw a really benevolent one in a grocery-store parking lot. Some mammoth SUV was straddling the line diagonally, and a good Samaritan wrote “Park better!” in the dust on the rear window. Impermanent, gentle, and effective.

      I’m a fan of printing up sheets of paper that have the headline “You Park Like An Asshole!” written on there, with various checkboxes for the basics (’2 Spots, one car’, ‘Too Fucking Close’, Litterbug’) and a nice ‘other’ column that leaves the rest of the 1/4 sheet of paper wide open for writing the last of their offenses on.

      I’ve found it’s quite useful… And deliciously passive-aggressive.

      One of the advantages of riding a motorcycle is that I can easily use that half-space that is left. But there’s always a part of me worried that if they parked that badly, would they run over my bike when they leave?

      If I take the half-space I always hope they see the silent declaration of “See! This is how badly you park! Only a motorcycle can fit here!” If they’re the kind of ass who parked in two spots to protect their oh-so-precious car, I just upstaged them.

      ‘Cause I’m that petty.

      I’ve done that before. People tend to realize my Honda Goldwing is worth more than their car, so they tend to leave it alone. Other than the small fan-club that it draws because it’s such a nice bike.

    The first note writer is mistakenly assuming that most people know what appropriate even means and that we have some sort of decent education! I had to go get my dictionary and to me that just does not a good PA note make!

    Now the second one, white trash all the way, a guy or gal after my own heart, crime of passion.

    The time it took to make that first sign, the care and (I’m hoping the special rack was already on there) thought makes me scared of this person! I think it’s Stewie!

    In all fairness Michael is parked like an idiot… there is barely any space for the car in front to get out. At least the vandal had the decency to choose a spray paint colour that works well with the vehicle.

      And is it just me, or is Michael also partially blocking a driveway?

    if I wasn’t such a coward I would GLADLY spray paint and scratch every single door of every single car that parks on the bike lane in my neighborhood. Just because their vehicles are bigger and make noise they think they can do whatever the fuck they want! and since you can’t spend your entire day waiting for the asshole to comeback to his/her car to punch him/her in the face, you JUST HAVE to go passive-aggresive like there’s no tomorrow.
    Please don’t park like an asshole.

      Ah, screw you and your stupid bike. I don’t WANT to share the road with some pansy dressed in spandex, who thinks his piece of tin should be able to ride 6 inches away from 2 tons of steel. Half the time you idiots don’t even STAY in the bike lane. Go to the park, ride some trails. The roads are for real boys and girls.

      The roads are for grown men and women who can read and interpret basic traffic laws. My experience says drivers, cyclists, and peds all suck at this about equally.

      Just this morning, a motorist tried to kill me but I was prepared for his malicious intentions. I was on the trail that crossed the street and he has a stop sign but he just ran through it @40 MPH. They don’t lie when they say that motorists are predators looking for a kill.

      Serenity, obviously you don’t live up to the meaning of your name, and obviously drive like an asshole. I assume you drive a huge gas-guzzling SUV because most of your type flock to them. Roads are for humans to travel on, whether they are in a motor vehicle, riding a motorcycle, on a bicycle, or walking (preferably through a crosswalk).

      Roads, however, are not for you to throw your trash, to skateboard on (that’s what the park is for), or to run people over. If you can’t share the road, get the fuck off of it.

      Madrias, “Serenity” doesn’t always mean inner calm. Sometimes it means a spaceship with a lot of sarcastic people on it, and sometimes it means adult diapers.

      I knew of the spaceship (I’ve watched the series Firefly before, and the partner movie).

      As far as the sarcastic comment, text doesn’t carry through that well. I believe you were trying to be sarcastic, but I read it as an offensive comment toward cyclists (of which I am one) and so took it somewhat personally.

      Never underestimate the power of quotation marks. Sometimes they help your “sarcasm” carry over “better.”

      The series is different, but good. The first episode (Pilot episode, and twice as long) is a little slow, but helps with learning the series. You might not need to watch it as some is covered by Serenity.

    The first one I can completely understand — taking & wrecking people’s belongings really isn’t cool.

    The second one, I can only hope that’s some form of paint that’s easily removed. Makes me wonder what “Michael” did (beyond parking improperly) to make someone angry enough to perhaps-permanently trash his paint job like that, though!

      I lived in Seattle for 10 years and the only area I saw cars consistently double-parked was in the “International District”. I spent months visiting San Francisco on multiple occasions and Chinatown was the same.
      Maybe there are similar parking practices in the Chaldean areas of Detroit, Italian areas of NYC, and other urban ethnic enclaves. Maybe.
      I didn’t say anything about driving. Glad to hear that yours is good.

    The first note was written by Michael, addressed to Stephanie after she appropriated his spray paint can (he’s a sign painter, as is clearly indicated by the quality of the lettering on the first photo) and destroyed his “belongings” (i.e., his truck).

    Humiliated in front of his compatriots in the Big Easy, Michael did what any jilted sign painter would — he set out north, broadcasting his heartfelt tale to all who cared to read it from Interstate 59 to I-81.

    If he’d have showed up on that special day, his car would only read “Just Married”.

    Alas, his car was spotted (by a gaggle of bridesmaids) parked askew at the local Kitty Kat Klub instead of the church parking lot.

    Yes, they travel packing yellow spray-paint.

    “Stephanie appropriates other people’s property.” So… she works at Small Claims Court?

    If you insist on using words from your SAT study guide, at least choose one with a more concise definition.
