I live in an apartment where there are a total of 16 units in the block, including us. This would severely lower the chances of having strange beings as neighbours, right?
Or so I thought.
For the past couple of years that we’ve lived at our lil’ place, we have had to contend with:
- a stack of old newspapers abandoned in the lift
- broken, rotting wood furniture left at the lift landing
- large pieces of rubbish left on top of small dustbin by the lift
- neighbours choosing to drill their walls at 7.30am on a Sunday morning
- pieces of orange skin trails leading from the main gate to the lift ala Hansel and Gretel
Did I mention that there are only 16 units in the building?
But what really takes the cake on an almost daily basis is the owner of this car. These photos were taken over a period of time across several months.
Notice a pattern? Yes, the driver/owner of this car cannot park. Did he buy his license at a kopitiam across the Causeway? Is he actually driving without a license? Is he just a complete idiot who has no sense of consideration for everyone else in the building?
There are already limited lots in the carpark and when he (yes, it is a he) parks like that, he prevents another car from taking the lot beside him! My colleagues tell me that some Singaporeans park like that on purpose so that other cars can’t park beside, hence preventing scratches.
Currently, our apartment block is being painted which means that even more parking lots are being taken up.
On Sunday evening, we arrived home to see this:
And that was the final straw. I had thoughts of puncturing his tyres, smashing his windscreen
and pushing his car into a ditch but did not want to risk going to jail so decided against it.
Instead, I did this:
I stuck it in the lift beside the buttons so if he misses it, he is probably a blind idiot or he can’t read English. For every other day that he doesn’t park properly, I am going to stick up the note (assuming he takes it down). If he still doesn’t get it, I am going to plaster his car with it.
Watch this space.
