Yeah what an even better assumption to make.

Maybe he's just mr. grumpy-messy. a small conversation would not be harmful.. maybe, he was going through some problems when you asked him to remove his car from the driveway.

When I have time, I will try to just talk to him. After all, the majority of times he does move his car.

Ahhh... I thought so. I just wanted to make sure. Thanks!
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.

I wasn't assuming he does drugs, or that he even deals, but I have dealt with that a lot in the past due to my line of work.. I have ideas as to how to deal with that kind of neighbor. I wouldn't do anything, if you feel you can talk with him. Sounds like he may be reasonable.

Took the words right out of my mouth. Considering I also keep vampire hours, I sometimes wonder what my neighbors think of me.

Get the books, "Get Even" because the books has some really good (bad) things that you can do. The first two books are the best.

Knowing how Condo's operate and all the rules and reg's they have.
I would just complain. Condo folk don't tolerate those types of people and have no problem taking action. In fact, I think its almost a fetish to them because they seem to get off on it so much. I cant remember how many times Ive gotten crap from the condo police.
We often joke that the rules the codo's have make it seem worse than when living with ones parents. Smile

However, if you take that complaint route, you may find that your car has some new lines along the side or maybe some air will magically escape from your tires.

its a tough situation where the first step should be you talking to him in a very nice tone while at the same time making yourself clear that you aren't happy. Maybe some indirect-hypnosis convincing him how happy he will be if he complies.

or

You may want to have him see you load your truck with your hunting rifles/guns. Smile


Do let us know the outcome.

Thanks to everyone for their responses.

It seems that my wife's comment about accidentally scratching his car if he doesn't move it has done the trick.

So far, he hasn't parked his car outside his garage since then.

Yeah, that is a very mature thing to do.

Simple solution here, actually:

1) Learn his schedule. When you KNOW he's asleep-

2) Quietly remove his screen door and screw a piece of sturdy plywood to the outside of the house, covering the spot where the screen door once was. Leave a 6 inch gap at the top. There is now approximately 3 inches of dead space between his main front door and your plywood.

3) Via the gap you left at the top, quietly but quickly fill this space with dirt, mud, and/ or concrete.

Viola! Problem solved.

We had a "bad neighbor" like that who lived next door to us. Seldom spoke to us. Had several different sets of license plates which he changed on his car from time to time, thinking nobody noticed.

Turned out he worked for the Health Department. The extra plates were used to keep the lookouts from spotting his car.

That's the best meth excuse I have ever heard... multiple, stolen plates is a dealers practice.

Depends on how she phrased it; "You're not leaving a lot of room and I might accidently scratch your car trying to get out." might work.
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.

No, he really was a legitmate inspector for the health department. We're talking 1950's here. Meth labs and stuff like that were unheard of around here.

Just because your neighbor might not have 'gotten' the obvious message already, and just because he seems to be not an especially classy or caring individual, did you ever think of trying to work things out in a civil and diplomatic way? Talk to him at a time when neither of you are rushed.
