    I have had neighbors actually call the police on me for parking in front of my customers house and "blocking their driveway" across the street. The deputy said that if they cant get their car out of their driveway that they didn't need to be driving. She told me to keep parking where I was and to not pay any attention to them. I guess they have had similar calls from these people before.
    I don't try to stir up trouble with neighbors but the drives alternate down the street, so if you are parked in front of a house, you are parked across from a driveway.

    I too hate these up-tight anal types but I treat everyone like a potential customer. Is it that much of a hassle to park the truck next door instead of across the street? Or to spend four or maybe FIVE extra minutes blowing debris from under the truck? Even if these anal types are not the customers you are looking for, they may still be able to put a good word in for your business instead of complaining about you to their friends. And we all know about word of mouth.

    i had a neighbor yell at me for cutting at 7am. i tried being nice to him but he kept going on and wouldn't stop. so...i raced my trimmer at full throttle then got on my 27hp lazer z at full throttle and gave a very thorough cut on that side of the house. since he was such a d1ck. that house is my first account of the day at 7am. btw, i finally asked him that if he felt i was violating any commercial activity / nuisance laws to call the police. but ofcourse, i always call town hall for each town i work in. so i knew i was in the right....for once! FIGHT THE PITA! yeeeaaahhhhh boooiiiiiiyyyyyy!
