Entitled neighbors

What is it with everyone turning a vacant property into their own personal parking lot? If I had a rollback I could open a car lot by now. I'm beyond sick of arriving at a new job site to find that the neighbors have high-jacked the driveway. Nothing worst then trashing out around someone's car/truck waiting for them to get off work so they can move it. I try to be a gentleman and thank them but each event brings me a bit closer to say'n, look, just cause it's vacant, doesn't mean it's YOURS!! Am I alone on this issue?

I blow clippings all over them and it doesn't happen again. True story. When I see one I smile.

I also like to plow in a vehicle. I leave my card with an apology and a bid.

My husband has done things from spraying the vehicle with grass clippings when he is mowing, to calling the cops.
The best was a big trash out he had to do and the ignorant neighbors would always park their vehicles in the foreclosed property driveway because theirs was full of junk.
So my husband being the nice guy that he is he blocked them in. Well the neighbor and his wife needed to leave to go to a wedding, but I had the truck as I was going to get the other trailer. They threatened my husband which was not a good thing to do, then they called the cops. The cops basically told them "you are trespassing by parking your vehicles in the other driveway and right now your **** out of luck."
My husband called me to say take your time getting back. I arrived 3 hours later. Yea they never went to the wedding and they also never parked in the driveway again.

I had 1 last week where the Rolloff container company was siting in front of the house ready to drop when they called to tell me a Lexus SUV was parked in driveway. I asked driver to knock on doors to see if there might be a realtor inside (it was posted No Entry due to mold remediation). Nobody answered doors so I asked if he could fit the little 20 yarder nice a tight and he laughed and said he sure could. There is a $55 fee if a return trip plus they were booked for 2 days and I'm not changing our crews schedule.

Got a call about 2 hrs later from the Realtor laughing that an Investor was "illegally" inside home and didn't want anyone to know. Her SUV was there on Monday when we finished and Rolloff is being pulled today. It was stuck there for 6 days

I don't sweat the small stuff.

There are too many idiots at the cube farm to worry about. I just carefully work around them. I do get the occasional "please bid to remove vehicle" from one of the monkeys.
You really do not need any extra problems, especially from neighbors.

I'd trip charge that puppy and turn it in as occupied.

I don't have time to be the investigator as to why there is someone parked there.

One summer way back when I was doing yards for screwguard I probably turned in half of the yards as occupied.
I asked a couple folks that were home how long they'd been there, all of them were there over 2 months since they'd bought the place.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.
