: I AM SO MAD!!! This guy that works in my building is being such a jerk! What should I do??? When I drive my little Z-car to work, I park on the 6th floor of the garage, in the friggin boonies the farthest away from the elevator I can get. It is pretty deserted up there. WELL!! SOMEONE keeps parking next to me as close as they can get with their left tires on the line and leaving about 50 empty spaces on the other side of them! This has really been bugging me. So today the JERK gets there the same time I do and parks way away from me, and even holds the elevator for me. We make small talk in the elevator. THEN when I come out to go home, I find he has MOVED HIS CAR sometime during the day, probably when he went out to lunch, and now he is parked SO CLOSE to me again. I swear if there had been a door ding, I would have killed him. There are tons of spaces up there, obviously he must realize I am trying to protect my investment that took me months to save for and take care of my car. SHEESH! He is messing with my head, and I don't know what to do!
: Well, I have some suggestions! They range from taking a ball bat across the front of his knees to taking my Subaru and parking really, really close to him to just parking on the other row and see if he follows me.
: Does anyone have any advice? I am afraid to say anything to him because he is obviously a JERK and therefore unable to reason. He might decide I'm a stuck up bitch and key my car or something.
: What is wrong with these idiots??
Don't say anything to this guy. Some of these jerks can go off unexpectedly.
1. Enter & leave in a group, preferably male friends.
2. Keep you head up, look around you, don't let people sneak up on you.
3. Have your keys in hand and ready to use, don't fumble in a purse.
4. Tell friends what is happening.
5. If you're worried consider some mace or pepper spray.
