“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye
shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh
findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”
King James Version
Okay, two posts in two days I know! I’m so excited though. I almost blogged last night when I got home at 1 a.m. but I was super exhausted. So, I have these new neighbors (about 6 or 7 months now) that have been parking directly behind my driveway. The street is pretty narrow to begin with and there are plenty of other places to park but for whatever reason they’ve been parking directly behind the driveway. It’s been a pain and I’ve tried to be patient. Well, we’ve gotten over a foot of snow and nearly a foot twice this year and the roads haven’t been completely cleared, making it EVEN narrower. I finally got up the courage to leave them a note. Now the last thing I wanted to do was leave a nasty note, I mean I have to live across from these people for however long. But I really wanted to solve this problem. So my note went a little like this:
Please stop parking behind our driveway. Our patience is wearing. It is hard enough to pull out when there isn’t snow taking up half of the street. There are two vacant driveways that you could park in or park in front of. We almost hit your van everyday. And it sucks.
And it did the trick. I came home last night and they were exactly at the edge perfect for us and not too much further from where they’d already parked. So the first thing I did this morning was write them a thank you and I plan to bake them some cookies as soon as I buy some butter and chocolate chips! They made my 2014 so far!
