Six pack of beer for him to move the car might be the easiest even though he doesn't deserve it. So, you can piss in one of those beers too!

One deer season, I came back from hunting to find a group of ten trucks and cars parked across the road from the driveway and one was parked blocking my mailbox, I thought you have two miles of road to park along and you have to block my driveway. I was waiting for my paycheck, so I decided that I would pull my truck out to the end of the drive and wait for the mailman. While I was waiting a PSP patrol car comes up the road and see's the parked vehicles and stops to ask what is going on. So I told him I was waiting for the mail so I could get my paycheck as it was coming in the mail. He asked If I knew any of the owners of the trucks. I said no. He ended up towing three trucks that were blocking the mail box and ticketing the rest.
Then the Game Warden came by and checked to see if the hunters had permission to hunt on the land, when he asked me I told him that I had been told I could not hunt there by the owners and I gave the GW the phone number of the land owner. He was told the by him that no one had permission to hunt on the land.
The GW asked them if they had permission and from whom they had it. OF course they lied to him and did not know who owned it, they were driving around and just hunting property they thought looked good. While the GW was determining what to write them up for one of them noticed that three trucks were missing and the others had tickets on them. I was heading back out to the woods after getting the mail and one of them yelled at me about towing the truck and also yelled a threat that "I would pay for towing their truck" The game warden called in asking for a PSP officer to be dispatched or the one that wrote the tickets and had the trucks towed came back through. In the end their was all the non Interstate patrol officers on the scene and they towed the rest of the vehicles and the hunters all ended up in the county Jail overnight, the one that yelled the threat stayed in the jail for four days until he got bailed out by his father. I do not remember what that cost them but it was not cheap I am sure. The father and his lawyer showed up here at the house to ask me not to resist the sons plea agreement, I told them that I had nothing to do with it as the Game Warden was the one that signed the complaint and was the one who I thought the kid had threatened.
I heard that the kid would lose his hunting privileges for ten years do 1500 hrs of community service in his hometown and not return to this area while he was under suspension.
And It could have all been avoided by not blocking my mailbox!

People wouldn't even leave their apartments until the plow came through. Well, I was the only one that would shovel my car out, then shovel out my spot. The minute I'd leave, a car would pull right in there! They'd sit and watch you bust your ass shoveling, then pull right in your spot like you did them a favor. That didn't go over well with me. Didn't take long before everyone in the building knew not to screw with "that guy's" parking spot ..

The neighbors refused to share in the snowplowing cost because they knew our friend had to plow their portion to get to her portion. So one storm she told her plow guy not to come; the neighbors got a plow, did their 60 feet, and left a big bank in the middle of the driveway blocking her remaining 140 feet. Rotten bastards. The irony is that the neighbors are loaded with money, travel to Europe whenever the urge strikes them, and our friend is an elderly woman on a very low fixed income.
Davian wrote:Total BS...if there is a right-of-way outlined in the property deed, there should almost certainly be a clause regarding common road maintenance including plowing costs. I have the same sort of arrangement with my two neighbors for our private road/driveways and its there. They likely have to pay PERIOD...or she can sue them for the cost. Its a pretty standard arrangement for such things so I'd be pretty surprised if its not in there.

So much that I will never ever ever buy a shared maintenance property unless there is a contract between all parties involved. I just cannot be subject to the whims of my neighbor on these types of issues.
