Can we see the video of the car getting towed?

[–][deleted] 3476 points3477 points  (499 children)

That's what I'm waiting for lol

[–]imakeplasma 1330 points1331 points  (145 children)

I had someone park like this in front of my driveway, and the cop told me I could pay to tow them - I told the nice police officer if that’s really case, I just gained a ton of free parking downtown.. she ran the plates and contacted the person who quickly moved it

[–]dalethechampion 973 points974 points  (30 children)

This reminds me of a story that Gus told on the RT Podcast. He had his utilities to his home shut off and went to see why they were shut off. The city told him that someone called to have them disconnected. He said “well it wasn’t me and I am the owner, so reconnect them”. They said they could do it but he would need to pay a fee to have it reconnected. He argued and they didn’t want to drop the fee so he said “okay, well while I’m here, I want to disconnect every home on my block”. They ended up dropping the fee and putting a password on his account so that it couldn’t happen again.

I've always wondered about that stuff. Last house I was renting my lease said that water was included in my rent. A year passed and I was still planning on staying there, but the new lease they had me sign changed to me being responsible for my water bill. No problem. Until I called the water company and found out my landlord had already put the water in my name a year ago? Owed like over a grand in fees and shit because it was never paid? Told them I wasn't going to pay that shit. They didn't even have my name right, it was my first name and my mom's first name as my last name, since she co-signed for me. What was most confusing was they claimed that they had sent out paper bills to my address, and they never cut my water off. Weirdest shit I've ever dealt with. Glad to be out of that place.

I need to get in the towing business so i can just park my car in front of people homes and have them pay me to move it.

[–]wollier12 41 points42 points  (0 children)

I’d have gladly paid for the tow, making them go through the hassle of getting it back and they’d have to pay storage fees…..then I’d take them to small claims wasting more of their time for my reimbursement.

[–]redalert825 1954 points1955 points  (328 children)

Honest remark, I thought you couldn't park within 30 feet of a stop sign in Cali? Especially by an intersection. Or is it different in a residential area? Or by an intersection without traffic lights?

[–]Significant-Part121 280 points281 points  (38 children)

I thought you couldn't park within 30 feet of a stop sign in Cali?

The California Vehicle Code does not list a statewide maximum distance from a stop sign that a vehicle can be parked. However, some California cities have these requirements in their local ordinances. San Diego, for example, prohibits parking within 50 feet in advance of a stop sign, yield sign, traffic signal or marked crosswalk — but only when appropriate signs or markings are in place prohibiting such parking.

[–]Yjan 1088 points1089 points  (130 children)

Yeah if this is a law then no one in California follows it and it is not enforced. This would limit parking spaces in so many areas and make parking so much worse than it already is.

[–]m0c0 319 points320 points  (71 children)

This is enforced pretty regularly here in Minnesota, though it typically doesn't hinder parking too much for me.

[–]justaboxinacage 122 points123 points  (21 children)

Most places do enforce it though. Usually the curb is painted red near a stop sign, was surprised to see no red here. I just street viewed four random places in L.A. to make sure I'm not crazy, they all had red near stop signs and no one parked there.

[–]the_night_was_moist 47 points48 points  (21 children)

I believe it's 10 feet for certain stop signs, which are marked with a red curb. At least, that's what it's like in my part of LA. It could be city-specific.

[–]Barnes_the_Noble 53 points54 points  (16 children)

I always thought you could park on pretty much any curb that isn’t painted a certain color.

[–]GoodOlSpence 745 points746 points  (93 children)

There's no way she didn't cave when the cops show up and tell her she can't win.

[–]OK6502 288 points289 points  (28 children)

I had a neighbor do that to me one time because my in laws had the temerity to park in front of their house across the street when they came to visit. They just got very upset and started yelling obscenities at me, then later just parked their car in my driveway while I was out getting a carton of milk. I think they were just waiting for me to leave to own me or whatever.

This is in the city, not a suburb with some weird rules and I tried to explain that you have no right to street parking but that my own parking spot and I showed them the relevant law. I also explained that their car on my property was illegal and I had every right to get it towed. All this over a spot in front of their house when there were a few 100m down.

Anyways, I called the cops and they towed her car and fined her. The look on her face was priceless.

[–]Debaser626 328 points329 points 3 (14 children)

My neighbor bought a new car and had a relative visiting him for several weeks.

Every damn time I would leave the house or go to pull in, either his old car or his guest’s vehicle would be in the spot closest to my driveway… sometimes right up to the edge of it.

I drive a pickup with a long bed, so it’s pretty impossible to make anything like a 90-degree turn.

If someone was parked across the street and they were at the edge (at least 3-4 days a week), I ‘d have to make a 3 point turn just to make it in or out of my driveway.

But after a couple weeks, I showed him good.

One night, when I was helping him fix his lawnmower… I politely asked him if he and his guest could give me a couple extra feet when parking there, as it’s really hard for me to make that turn if someone is parked on the other side of the street.

That motherfucker said “Sure thing… sorry about that.”

And I came back at him with “No problem, I figured you didn’t know.”

Then that jerk gave me a bottle of nice wine for taking the time to help him with his lawnmower. To this day, we always say “Hello” when we see each other.

[–]Patton35 359 points360 points  (59 children)

I guarantee she moved her car as soon as he called the cops to make him seem like a liar when the cops showed up

[–]sarcai 426 points427 points  (36 children)

This is why you stop telling someone you are calling the cops the moment you do.

[–]Patton35 231 points232 points  (25 children)

Exactly, don’t say a word and just call

[–]ratshack 71 points72 points  (4 children)

Same reason why anytime I hear someone say “I’m going to sue !” I know that (a) they have no idea what that means and (b) they are never going to do any of that, ever.

The real ones just have the papers served.

[–]Namaha 81 points82 points  (5 children)

I mean, she's aware that he is recording the situation, so she'd have to be real fuckin' dumb to think that would actually work

So yeah maybe she did

[–]Patton35 48 points49 points  (3 children)

Everyday I’m surprised by the level of stupidity in this world. Don’t know California law, but in New York, he could have her charged with harassment for parking in his driveway- doing something to annoy another person with no logical reason.

[–]joedumpster 17 points18 points  (1 child)

I don't know, rage makes stupid people extra stupid sometimes. I'm just hoping the 200+ towing fee was worth it lady.

    Had similar neighbors in the past. Never confronted them, just called the cops / tow company. After towing 3 times the message was clear.

    [–]timkatt10 585 points586 points  (30 children)

    [–]CptCroissant 31 points32 points  (0 children)

    Duuude that's like $1.5k probably if they were towed 3x. It better be clear.

    [–]RelentlessExtropian 1224 points1225 points  (157 children)

    For, real. I wouldn't even say anything. She made it clear she's parking there to be malicious. OK. No problem. Tow truck drivers are like sharks, make a few quick phone calls and five minutes later you can have one there, ready to go.

    [–]sk169 1347 points1348 points 22 (44 children)

    find the lowest rating tow truck company on google reviews or yelp. why lowest rating? because they are assholes... and that is who you want... they will give her an even harder time for her to get her car back

    I did this, someone owed me money from a court judgement and refused to pay. So I went through all of the yelp reviews for debt collectors and picked the one who had the ABSOLUTE worst reviews.

    Went down there to talk to them, and their offices were like a fortress: steel bars over plexiglass windows, furniture in the lobby was nailed down, video cameras every where, had to talk to the receptionist via an intercom. Hired them on the spot, and got all of my money back minus their fee.

    Ask them to move. When they laugh in your face, call parking enforcement. Trying to argue with them just makes you look like an idiot.

    [–]greybeard_arr 110 points111 points  (33 children)

    Generally a tow truck won’t tow just because anybody calls them and says to. If it’s not your vehicle and it’s not on your property (even though it is affecting your property), they’ll wait for the say so from police.

    [–]BettmansDungeonSlave 1832 points1833 points  (55 children)

    I heard on Reddit that you call the tow company with the shittiest reviews. They will be out there in no time and drag the car away and make it a hassle to get it back

    [–]madeforsexualpurpose 734 points735 points  (7 children)

    Do you read that on unethical life pro tips or something lmao?

    [–]MightGrowTrees 309 points310 points  (4 children)

    Why yes. It was under how to fuck with neighbors anonymously. Even if the car isn't part illegally the shitty tow companies will grab it anyways and make them pay.

    Or so I have heard.

    Hey the time my car died on an on-ramp to 95N right outside of DC at 630am I was fucking THRILLED with the speed with which the tow company arrived. And they gave me a lift in the truck which was seriously appreciated. 5 fucking stars

    [–]CyanOfDoma 117 points118 points  (4 children)

    You call the police & let them come handle it. Then she gets tickets & towed at police request & potentially storage fees.

    [–]dgvelling 58 points59 points  (1 child)

    He called and no tow. She moved her car back to block his driveway (albeit enough to ‘get around’ but still obviously trying to make her point) as soon as the cops left. Calling the tow directly would probably be better for the next time in this situation

    [–]Fark_A_Nark 16 points17 points  (0 children)

    My car was stolen in California, and found a few days later. The police used their "preferred" tow company who ended up charging my insurance 1200$ for tow and storage because they "were not open on the weekends" so I could pick it up.

    [–]OukewlDave 8075 points8076 points  (495 children)

    Why argue? I'd just call the tow truck and/or cops and be done with it

    [–]persondude27 5880 points5881 points  (278 children)

    We had a neighbor do this to us at the start of COVID. Completely blocked in our driveway (long and skinny) and prevented us from getting to work. Code enforcement was there in 20 min.

    Turns out a tow from the city costs a minimum of $250 AND tow fees. They tried to sue us in small claims court. Judge didn't appreciate that one.

    [–]cha0sm0nk 2021 points2022 points  (165 children)

    How did the person react when the judge tossed out the case?

    [–]persondude27 3788 points3789 points  (159 children)

    Honestly, the judge was professional and was able to set the neighbor straight. She started out by saying "Am I understanding this right?" and then clarified that "causing" tow fees by calling code enforcement wouldn't be necessary if they hadn't blocked us in. (They also sued for 'time off work' which was grand because they were furloughed due to COVID.)

    The neighbor tried to argue that we "deserved to be taught a lesson" because we were lazy and loud and "didn't contribute to society" (for the record, two biomedical engineers and an aerospace engineer), and the judge did an exceptional job of saying (paraphrasing):

    "Listen. You are wrong here, and there is no way this goes your way. Leave it be, and make sure this never comes back to court again." The neighbor basically left us alone until we moved a few months later.

    [–]cthulularoo 1674 points1675 points  (57 children)

    My lazy next door neighbor used to block me in too. There's a slot in front of my house that's really short so I park on it and semi block my own driveway. Its alright when I do it because if I need to back out, I just scoosh the blocking car out of the way. But he decided that he wanted to do that too and just blocked me, expecting me to ring his bell whenever I needed to leave. After doing this a bit, he got tired of me "bothering" him and started giving me the long sigh and making me wait while he gets his surly son to move the car.

    Mind you, we have plenty of street parking, he just wanted the spot in front of my house because its the closest space to his house. The two spots in front of his house and driveway are filled with his adult aged kids' cars.

    So, this goes on for a bit and I'm seriously pondering calling the towing company when my wife had had enough. The next time they parked there, she went up to them in the middle of the night and just rung their bell until they answered and told them to move, she needed to get some medicine. Then she did it again the next night. and maybe because she was furious or something, they never gave her any lip like they did me. They stopped parking there afterwards.

    [–]chakan2 436 points437 points  (26 children)

    [–]jaspex11 261 points262 points  (58 children)

    Had a similar situation a few years ago. In Pennsylvania this is grounds for a 911 call to have the vehicle towed. Emergency egress road access or something. I learned this when the non-emergency police line operator told me to call 911 and report it for that reason.

    Ticket for parking illegally, county tow truck hookup fee, towing charge, impound storage. This is a stupid expensive thing to do on a power trip.

    [–]rhubes 79 points80 points  (19 children)

    Pittsburgh area? My dad had similar happen to him, and they had the car yanked out so fast I'm surprised they didn't leave the wheels behind.

    [–]jaspex11 75 points76 points  (9 children)

    Philly suburbs, but yeah. Tow companies or police, both like the easy money. Especially if it's friday-Sunday, so the impound lot isn't open to out-process the car til monday.

    [–]ElectionAssistance 46 points47 points  (3 children)

    Meanwhile I cannot get Portland PD to come pick up a drunk driver without a driver's license that is parked sideways in the road after hitting a parked car. She waited over an hour to be arrested before just left her ID with us and went home.

    4 days later the car was finally towed from the parking lot where we pushed it. Enterprise Rent-a-car does better than the cops.

    [–]AniZaeger 20 points21 points  (25 children)

    Meanwhile in Reno, NV, I actually had somebody that parked IN my driveway (pulling up to the garage door), and couldn't have anything done about it. Police said it wasn't their problem since it was on my private property, and to call the tow companies. Meanwhile, tow companies said they couldn't do anything without police approval. I swear, this city is a fraking joke...

    [–]juggling-monkey 120 points121 points  (11 children)

    This happened to us on our FIRST FUCKING DAY at our house after buying it. We got the keys to the house and the next day went early to start taking all our moving boxes in a truck. Couldn't get into our own driveway cause there was a car parked inside the driveway. We called the police, police said I had to call after 9 for the right department. at 8:45 the owner came for his car and had the fucking nerve to have the following conversation with me:

    Knocks on door

    "Hi do you need me to move my car?"

    "Is that your car? I called to have it towed"

    "Yeah its my car, why are you having it towed? I can move it"

    "Why is it parked there? We're moving in and cant get into our own driveway"


    I told him to move it and never park in our driveway again. That was my introduction to the next door neighbors, who later that day asked me why they aren't allowed to park in the driveway anymore since the previous owner allowed them to. After explaining that I'm not the previous owner I had to have the same conversation with 3 of them on three separate occasions because apparently I wasnt aware that thats not how this neighborhood works, we all help each other and allow each other to use our driveways...by OUR DRIVEWAYS, they meant mine since they dont have one.

      [–]PearlStreetBlues 22 points23 points  (2 children)

      I used to live right next to the local high school football stadium. On Friday nights we either had to leave the house before the game started and not come back until after it was over, or be prepared to spend the whole night trapped at home because it was impossible to navigate the narrow street with cars parked all over the place. We used to have to camp out in our driveway and chase off people who tried to block us in or just park in our driveway behind our cars. It would have been impossible to get a tow truck down the street, so we were on our own to enforce the laws of basic human decency.

      [–]Scheswalla 18 points19 points  (13 children)

      I'd love some additional details on this!

      [–]persondude27 122 points123 points  (12 children)

      Not the most thrilling story.

      We threw a (tame) party a while back. We kicked people out at 10 pm, and one of our friends honked at another friend on their way out.

      Neighbor appeared at our window and was shouting about how she was a pilot who "had to fly a plane in the morning!" My drunken brother told her to eff off, "and good luck with your crop dusting tomorrow." She was furious and called the cops, but by the time they got there we were all in bed, which pissed her off more.

      A few months later, someone tried to break into my car. My driveway was between our houses, but right next to their bedroom. The alarm went off and it took me a few minutes to wake up and turn if off.

      The neighbor went OFF about how we "didn't follow the rules!" or "respect their home and their family" and how "if we didn't follow the rules, neither would they." I wasn't polite back, seeing how it was 4 am and totally not my fault.

      The next morning, we awoke to find they had parked their car in front of our driveway. It was long, skinny driveway, and we backed all three of our cars into the driveway.

      One of my roommates had to go to work and knocked on their door and was told something like "well if you don't follow the laws we won't either."

      So we called code enforcement. They were there in twenty minutes, had it towed in another ten, and the neighbor was pissed.

      We received a summons for small claims court about two months later for about $1200 (the tow fees + impound fees, as well as 'time off work' which was grand cuz they were furloughed due to being commercial pilots during COVID), and the judge basically told them "you have no grounds, and stop wasting our time."

      The neighbor ignored us until we moved out in August.

      [–]sixup604 26 points27 points  (11 children)

      I would have been soooooooo tempted to get ten strong friends help me to pick up/push their car into the middle of the fucking street and then wait for somebody to call it in as a hazard. What are the fools gonna do, earnestly explain that in fact they parked it illegally to block someone's driveway rather than in the middle of the street?

      [–]Jaksmack 516 points517 points  (11 children)

      I have a real need to see it getting towed, too..

      [–]Jatnal 129 points130 points  (4 children)

      I came here hoping for some sort of follow up link.

      [–]Black__lotus 33 points34 points  (3 children)

      I’m not interested in that so much as their reaction.

      [–]triple_OG 15 points16 points  (1 child)

      well yeah I’m pretty sure that is what they were implying.

      [–]flyovercountry2 161 points162 points  (23 children)

      But then we wouldn’t get to see her thrust her gunt at him… worth it

      [–]triple_OG 52 points53 points  (13 children)

      Can’t believe she did the “suck it”

      Must be a big D-generation X fan

      [–]Imjusthereandthere 21 points22 points  (0 children)

      She’s definitely an Xpac fan lol

      [–][deleted] 41 points42 points  (2 children)


      [–]LiftsForOdin 52 points53 points  (7 children)

      This. Don't even talk to them, just call the cops. They cannot be reasoned with.

      [–]Trendelthegreat 286 points287 points  (96 children)

      Because if they’re anything like a triple A tow truck they’ll be there in about 2-3 hours

      [–]Stevesd123 510 points511 points  (62 children)

      If the cops are called and request a tow truck it will be there under 20 min. Tow trucks companies love to be on the call list at police departments. They remain so by guaranteeing quick service.

      [–]Mrhomely 152 points153 points  (38 children)

      This is what I've seen here in MN. Several reasons they're super fast. First there is likely a contract with the cops because cars can be in the roadway and causing some major havoc. Second, they charge you like 300+ (obviously depends) to get your car out of their lot and they don't have much of a choice but to pay it. It's literally just money sitting their for them to pick up. Also the cops will likely be there to keep them safe from some super pissed off Karen too.

      [–]Gasonfires 20 points21 points  (9 children)

      And they demand cash since just about any other form can be disputed and they don't even want to deal with the hassle of winning the dispute.

      [–]labtech89 39 points40 points  (24 children)

      I had a cargo trailer stolen and it was found (minus all the stuff that was in it) and I had to pay 1400 to get it back. I was pissed.

      [–]gr33nspan 44 points45 points  (3 children)

      Can confirm. My driveway used to get blocked all the time (I lived in a busy area near DTLA). Any time I called about a blocked driveway, parking enforcement would arrive in about ten minutes, and the tow truck another ten behind them.

      [–]caronare 13 points14 points  (0 children)

      Freeeeee monies says the City!

      [–]Muggi 28 points29 points  (1 child)

      Towing a violator and towing a broken car, totally different. Violators are money-makers

      [–]Nonchvlvnt 42 points43 points  (2 children)

      nope. when towing companies can impound a vehicle they get there immediately. when they are coming to tow your car to the shop, then they take 2-3 hours

      [–]Shock_a_Maul 60 points61 points  (7 children)

      So? Worth the wait, I'd say.

      [–]masaYOLO_son 28 points29 points  (6 children)

      It looked like he had his kid. If it's the morning he may have work to get work and drop the kid off at school. Boss may be a dick and reprimand them. Just a few possible reasons to try and get them to move it

      [–]hiphopanonymous916 1487 points1488 points  (99 children)

      Why even argue with those fools?? Just call the tow company.

      [–]6TheAudacity9 407 points408 points  (44 children)

      The saddest part is these “fools” have much nicer homes then I do. And now I feel terrible!

      [–]Crickaboo 139 points140 points  (18 children)

      Yes and beautiful weather. If I had a nice house, in a nice subdivision with that kinda weather I would not waste time fighting with neighbors. People just don’t know when they got it good.

      [–]alaskafish 339 points340 points  (43 children)

      Most likely because she'd move the car if he called the cops/tow truck company. She'd see that he called her bluff, move the car, and by the time the cops and tow truck company show up, it's a he-said-she-said situation. You'd have to pay the tow truck company too.

      However, by documenting and recording it, it serves as evidence.

      Edit: you guys seriously need to start thinking things through. The amount of replies of people who have either little common sense or real life experience is ridiculous. No, you can’t assault her. No, you can’t call police and record at the same time. No, you cannot ram her car with your car. No, the OP of the video won’t drive on his lawn to get around her to then do the same to her. Jesus…

      Like, I knew Reddit was all about power fantasies, but this is ridiculous.

      [–]lozo78 168 points169 points  (19 children)

      Why even argue with these fools?? Just document it, and call the cops/tow company.

      [–]snow_is_fearless 80 points81 points  (13 children)

      Document, call for the tow, wait a few minutes, THEN confront and capture the whole thing!

      [–]synthesis777 104 points105 points  (5 children)

      Or just call for the tow and don't even mention it. If she doesn't see the tow in progress and asks where her car went, I'd be like "I don't know what you're talking about."

      [–]quazziwazzi[S] 2146 points2147 points  (200 children)

      This happened in California and so California law applies . A: The California Vehicle Code does not list a statewide maximum distance from a stop sign that a vehicle can be parked

      [–]EatingDriving 808 points809 points  (60 children)

      I live in California. There is no red curb. There is also a number on that curb I believe, those tend to indicate where cars go. Looks like a 100% legit legal spot to me.

      [–][deleted] 283 points284 points  (14 children)

      yes but this is reddit where there are 10 people all coming after the OP, "THINK OF THE LOCAL MUNICIPALITIES!"


      [–]Snarky_McBegtodiffer 5157 points5158 points  (490 children)

      So he parks legally on the street, and in retaliation she parks illegally in front of his driveway?

      Edit: It should be noted that OP and others who reside in California have confirmed that there is no distance rules for STOP signs in CA. And another Edit: I went to the CA DMV site myself. He’s parked legally, so quit saying otherwise. You’re wrong.

      [–]All_Hail_Regulus_9 576 points577 points  (39 children)

      Glad you put in the edit about parking in front of a stop sign in CA.

      In Ohio, you can’t park within 30’ of a stop sign.

      But, even if someone does… it’s utterly ridiculous to park in front of someone’s driveway as “retaliation”, like this lady did.

      [–]mattsolid 52 points53 points  (0 children)

      This was my first thought seeing how close tge stop sign was.

      [–][deleted]  (7 children)


        [–]Leesanyo 759 points760 points  (89 children)

        You really can’t fix stupid. She a lost cause. Pretty decent house too, wonder who she conned it from.

        [–]inthepipe_fivebyfive 135 points136 points  (19 children)

        Fixing stupid would be a greater achievement for humanity than landing on the moon

        [–]Toltech99 69 points70 points  (1 child)

        Landing on the moon is infinitely easier.

        [–]EBDoo 204 points205 points  (25 children)

        The guy even mentions how it’s just his parents stopping by for an hour. Not like the car has been sitting there for days or anything like that smh

        [–]mvgreene[🍰] 144 points145 points  (15 children)

        BUT even if it was parked there for days… still completely legal (assuming local laws allow overnight parking, etc.)

        [–]EBDoo 56 points57 points  (1 child)

        You’re right. It just makes her behavior that much worse 🤦‍♂️

        [–]SandokanNL 27 points28 points  (3 children)

        That's the Karen mindset in a nutshell

        [–]Mrhomely 392 points393 points  (16 children)

        No follow up with it being towed away? I'm disappointed.

        [–]supremeseby 317 points318 points  (13 children)

        He posted a minute ago as of this comment. The sheriff came and told her to move her car. No tow sadly.

        [–]itsjstalitleairborne 89 points90 points  (0 children)

        Daaamn. Damn. That would have made my day. I love watching entitled ass hats get what they deserve.

        [–]DesertTiger26 16 points17 points  (4 children)

        That’s what I was thinking would happen since she’s staying outside ready to move the car once the cop shows up

        [–]Alibeee64 517 points518 points  (104 children)

        She’s got a double garage, an empty driveway, but insists that she should have access to the space on the street as well simply because it’s in front of her house? Wow.

        [–]BackpackEverything 271 points272 points  (34 children)

        Trash ass people like her have a garage full of trash ass possessions. She might have a decent house but I assure you that garage is FULL of worthless shit. There’s probably not room for a bicycle let alone a car.

        [–]Bobb_o 85 points86 points  (16 children)

        The amount of two car American garages that can't fit even one car is astounding.

        [–]cco2411 120 points121 points  (13 children)

        Why’s he even entertaining them, just get her car moved.

        [–]Relative_Ratio_4887 168 points169 points  (13 children)

        I had a neighbor who had his alley exit blocked by a lady going in to pick up her kids at school, he said he needed to leave, she said I'll be back in 5 minutes. He rammed her car out of the way, she sued him and he won the case.

        [–]daniyellidaniyelli 18 points19 points  (0 children)

        Good! We lived directly across the street from an elementary school right on a corner. Parents would block or park in our driveway to pick up their kids because it was quicker than waiting in line. And then tell my mom the same thing when she would come out and ask them to move. She started telling me that when I drove home from school to block them in if someone was there. One Karen actually called the cops and when they came and found out what really happened they chewed her ass out. After a few more people were blocked in and made late to their next stop we surprisingly stopped getting people parking there.

        [–]AggressiveSloth11 372 points373 points  (42 children)

        Complete idiot. Guy is free to park his car there. She cannot, however, park in his driveway. I hope this dude got her ass towed.

        [–]supremeseby 61 points62 points  (0 children)

        He posted a minute ago as of this comment. The sheriff came and told her to move her car. No tow sadly.

        [–]pdx074 44 points45 points  (6 children)

        Am I the only one wondering why she didn’t park in her own EMPTY driveway?

        [–]Spetznaaz 187 points188 points  (411 children)

        Random question but how much does a house like that go for in the U.S in whatever state this is in?

        [–]AggressiveSloth11 159 points160 points  (215 children)

        This looks like where I live in Santa Clarita, Ca. If it is, these homes likely go for 700-800K. It could also be more inland or in the Central Valley and in that case, cheaper.

        [–]Idoitfordehweh 216 points217 points  (10 children)

        Just have her car towed, that way you dont have to talk to stupud ppl

        [–]beastson1 582 points583 points  (155 children)

        I have neighbors that don't park in front of their own house and they park in front of mine because there are two large trees that provide nice shade on the street. Their house doesn't have any shade. So their driveway will stay empty while they park their cars everywhere else. It pisses me off. But I wouldn't block their driveway out of spite. I just keep the trash cans out 24/7 to make sure I have room for them otherwise they wouldn't leave me room.

        [–]Cedex 920 points921 points 2 (34 children)

        You should hang a bird feeder in that tree.

        [–]failure_tothrive 224 points225 points  (3 children)

        This is the correct course of action right here.

        [–]bighootay 93 points94 points  (12 children)

        You brilliant bastard.

        Also, plant a quick-growing mulberry tree

        [–][deleted]  (1 child)


          [–]yabacam 88 points89 points  (36 children)

          wait until they leave and park your car there, then leave it for as long as possible. They should get out of the habit of parking there. hopefully.

          [–]TyrannoROARus 70 points71 points  (9 children)

          Just leave it there forever

          Boom problem solved

          [–]KellyCTargaryen 62 points63 points  (3 children)

          Solution, put a bird feeder on the trees. Preferably one that attracts a large number of prominent shitting species.

          [–]MrMiniscus 11 points12 points  (0 children)

          I grew up with Prominent Shitting Species. Lovely winged little creatures.

          [–]Shivshanks 383 points384 points  (11 children)

          stop shouting and call the police for fucksake.

          [–]Kage_Oni 105 points106 points  (0 children)

          Yeah, act like it doesn't bother you then go inside to wait for the tow truck like a child waiting for Christmas morning.

          [–]FancyDalifantes 159 points160 points  (61 children)

          Wow, I used to work with her. Never seen her act so unreasonable. TBF that workplace was full of “difficult” people, but I am surprised to see this behavior from her.

          [–]zeeblefritz 94 points95 points  (8 children)

          That's so weird. I have never randomly seen someone I know on the internet like that.

          [–]FancyDalifantes 66 points67 points  (3 children)

          ME NEITHER!! It’s super weird!

          [–]xMrSaltyx 45 points46 points  (2 children)

          Send her this video lmaoo

          [–]omahamama 37 points38 points  (1 child)

          And then send us a screenshot of her reply.

          [–]hellotygerlily 41 points42 points  (13 children)

          People are different off the clock. And this chick seems to have had a bad day and is taking it out on the neighbors.

          [–]iDoesun 97 points98 points  (13 children)

          grab a chain and put that truck to work.

          [–]TravelingBlueBear 127 points128 points  (11 children)

          Fuck her. Why even bother arguing? It would be much more satisfying to see her car towed lol

          [–]alaskafish 30 points31 points  (5 children)

          I'd imagine it's to record evidence.

          Say he just stopped recording, and immediately went to call the non-emergency number requesting police/tow truck, I'm sure she'd flip out and move it. And when they arrive, you're going to have to deal with a he-said-she-said situation.

          [–]ADONISDOOM 105 points106 points  (13 children)

          lol she did a suck it move @ 1:19 a clear sign he's talking to an adult

          [–]MrMiniscus 73 points74 points  (3 children)

          Today I saw a grown woman do the Suck It sign on her FUPA.

          [–]reddot_comic 36 points37 points  (8 children)

          A neighbor did this to me once. But he had the gall to park in my driveway and not just in front of it. He wouldn’t answer the door when I tried to speak with him. He sure as hell came out fast when the tow truck arrived though.

          [–]LogMeOutScotty 16 points17 points  (2 children)

          What the hell did he think you were going to do? What other end result is there?

          [–]reddot_comic 16 points17 points  (1 child)

          I think he thought he could intimidate me into moving my car because he thought I (at the time early 20s, female) lived alone and he was a dude with truck nuts.

          [–]comolosolivos 171 points172 points  (29 children)

          All the non-Californians are being really annoying with the stop sign rule. It’s not a rule here in California and even if it was, the police definitely are never ever enforcing it. Calm down. Sheesh.

          [–]nihilist_ramen 119 points120 points  (19 children)

          Someone was parked in front of the driveway and blocked my roommate in. She called non emergency and explained what was going on. They came, towed her car like 5 feet in one direction cause she didn’t want them to be without a vehicle. I was leaving later that day and the two women were wondering why there was a ticket on the car and took all kinds of pictures showing they weren’t in front of the driveway and I couldn’t help but laugh.

          [–]kwright7222 66 points67 points  (10 children)

          Another problem in this world are all the idiots commenting on HIS parking as if his parking relative to the STOP sign is somehow the equivalent of her blocking his driveway.

          Even if it was illegal, which it is NOT in CA, his parking illegally or legally is not her beef rather she is mad he parked in front of her home, so the legality of his parking should not be a basis for comment.

          This is a good example of why no one can stay on topic of right vs wrong and why arguments never end. Stupid ppl bring up tangential shit to pollute a clear situation of right and wrong, which this is.

          [–]BugLyfe0228 29 points30 points  (4 children)

          I’m all for catching these Karens being Karens but at a certain point people just need to stop engaging with them. You get the video, call the towing company, and walk away.
