Someone didn’t like the way a car was positioned and left a little note.

. The poem was handwritten on what appeared to be a portion of an envelope, and wedged in one of the front windshield wipers.

“Roses are red, violets are blue,” the poem read, “you f**king suck at parking.”

      sometimes, we need a laugh. a break away from the seriousness of life.

      Roses are red,
      Violets are blue.
      Man does not live
      By politics alone.
      And this couplet
      Doesn’t rhyme either.

    lol… have to admit the poetry is lacking but the sentiment is real. So many times I wish I would have left that note.

      i’ve left a note after coming back to my parallel parked car to find someone who squeezed in making me have to pull up and back for damn near 10 mins. it said “next time leave me a can opener.”

          When I see someone driving at dusk with no lights on, I wish I had a sign that said, “Turn your f*cking lights on.” But I never do.

    Some people really can’t park a vehicle and some just don’t care where or how they abandon their car. Many deserve a little note or more.

    I like the little pre-printed notes you can leave on Humvees which read “nice truck, sorry about your penis”

    • Larry Schmitt June 3rd, 2015 at 7:10 pm

      It would be even better if you could see their reaction when they read the note.

    I think I see a trend here where parking skills are on the wane.
    Maryland just abolished the requirement to be able to parallel park to get a licence.
    One of my guilty pleasures is driving downtown and stopping for the car in front of me as it attempts to parallel park. That arm will come out the window waving me to go around but do I?
    HELL NO! I sit there and enjoy the show.

    I’m an ace at parallel parking. For years I had a challenge out for anyone to top me in a sort of competition I thought up.
    Being a carpenter, I always have a tape measure with me and what I’d do is park in a tight space and measure the distance between the bumpers of my car and those in front and back, then add them together to get the difference between the length of my car and the space I parked in.
    I achieved my personal record outside the old 9:30 Club in D.C. one night when I drove several friends up to catch a show. (I’m pretty sure it was the Fleshtones and the Beatnik Flies.) Anyways, we got there and I see this prime spot right in front of the door! I slowed down and stopped while all my friends but one told me to drive around the block because there was no way I was gonna get in this space.
    Heh heh heh, I was driving a Toyota Starlet then, which had wheels right in the corners of the vehicle and I got that rascal in there and measured. The parking space was only 14-1/8 inch longer than the car. I got out with a big shiteatin’ grin on my face because not only did I have my friends for witnesses, but everyone standing outside the 9:30 Club also saw what I did.

    Oh, and by the way, since it is possible to get in a tight spot by banging your way in, riccocheting off the other car’s bumpers, for my little game there was a one-bump rule. You get one bump but any more and it doesn’t qualify for the game.
