My next door neighbors had a yard sale today. I have a driveway right off of our street, the don't. Their driveway is behind their house off of the alley.
Yes, as I came out of my house to leave for work, a customer had parked in my driveway, blocking me in.
What made it SS--she kept saying she was ready to leave, but kept picking up other items, looking for change, she walked back and forth to her vehicle several times, each time saying she was ready to leave. I wasn't in a super big hurry, but come on!
ah yes, the attendee to a neighbor's garage sale. years ago, in our old house on a cul de sac, our next door neighbor had a yard sale. i had come out of our house and gotten into the hub's truck, which was parked on our driveway, to head to the store. as i was closing the truck door, some chick whips into the cul de sac, parks across the bottom of our driveway blocking me in, and jumps out of her car to head to the yard sale next door. i called to her to move her car. she yells back "you'll have to wait, i'll only be 10 minutes, i'm going to your neighbor's yard sale!" as if i should just wait to leave my house until she was done. i turned on the truck, gave a few honks of the horn, and started slowly coasting down the driveway. she screamed, ran back to her car, jumped in, and moved her car, swearing at me the whole time. she stopped her car dead in the middle of the cul de sac (thus blocking 5 driveways instead of just mine), jumps out of her car screaming at me, telling me she'll call the police for threatening her, etc. our neighbor, having the yard sale, had seen the whole thing. he told her to move along, that she wasn't allowed in his yard. she jumped back into her car and sped off, flashing a rude gesture to us all out her driver's side window. by the way, the truck never got to the end of our driveway, and her car was never in any danger. also, it's against county ordinance to block driveways here, even your own
she actually DID call the police on me. the nice officer showed up an hour later, and upon hearing what i had to say, what the next door neighbor had to say, and two neighbors across the street had to say, shook his head, remarked how people go crazy about yard sales, and told me to have a good day.
