Here's a timely one! I hope we won't be dealing with this situation again this winter, but let's be realistic: there's a good chance we will. 

How do you go about getting someone out of a parking space you have shoveled though 5 snow storms!! I live on a residential street with a lot of traffic, most of it is resident parking so there are only about 4 maybe 5 cars that regularly park during the year. As we have had more and more snow this winter we have all of a sudden become the parking mecca. So during each storm I shovel out a spot only to come home and find that someone has decided to park in that spot. How rude is it, I know you can not protect a public parking space, but can we place have some common courtesy. As it is our street is now one lane wide with all of these hole where people park then leave to go back to there regular space and do not do anything and leave the mess for us that ACTUALLY LIVE HERE!!!

What are YOUR THOUGHTS, READERS????

I'll post my response on Friday, and we'll have a conversation topic up on Wednesday. And you can always follow my other blog, or follow me on Twitter (robinabrahams).
