AITA for not allowing my "disabled" neighbor to park in my driveway and getting her car towed, despite the previous owner allowing it?
I bought a house a few months ago and moved in last month. The previous owner was a friendly old man that could no longer live alone so he decided to sell and move in with his daughter. Just to be clear I put disabled in quotation marks because the lady in question is just really really overweight and I am not sure if that counts as disabled. Now apparantly he had been allowing use of his driveway to his "disabled" neighbor lady largely because street parking is extremely limited and what little street parking there is, is pretty much instantly occupied. What I am saying is unless you have a driveway you end up having to park a good 5 minute walk away and that's the best case scenario. Obviously I was unaware of this so I was surprised to see a large SUV parked in my driveway when I moved in. I ended up having to knock on several doors asking who's car it was because the movers could not stand still on the busy road too long. I figured out it was the neighbors car so after a good 10 minutes of knocking an extremely angry enormous lady opened the door. I told her to move the car and she immediatly started arguing that the neighbor said it was fine, I told her he moved out, I moved in and no it is not fine and to move it because the movers need to unload my stuff. She begrudgingly did, I ended up seeing her walking back half an hour later completely wet with sweat. Now a few days later I went back to work and lo and behold, the SUV is parked in my driveway again. I go over there again, spend 20 minutes knocking on the door before this lady opens the door, agaon, visibly angry. I tell her to move her car, my driveway is not public parking. She protests saying her ankles can't take walking the distance and claims I can easily walk, I tell her that while that might be true, it's my goddamn driveway and I want to park there myself. Again she moves her car, again I spot her half an hour later drenched in sweat making her way home. Well it happened again a week ago and this time she would not open her door, I got tired of it and had her SUV towed. She of course came to my house to scream at me, I told her to get the hell of off my property. A few days later I had a small fence installed with a lock on it to make sure it did not happen again. I have since been getting dirty looks from her and one other neighbor and when I told my mom she told me I should be nicer to people. I do feel sort of bad too, she clearly struggles with the walk after all.
TIL in several Chinese cities, there is a service called "jam-busting". Drivers in traffic jams who need to get somewhere urgently call for a couple of people to show up on a motorbike. One stays with your car, and the other puts you on the back of the bike, and blasts off through and around the jam
I’m finally done clearing out my depression nest of a garage after weeks of hard work. I donated 55 trash bags full of stuff and threw away 12 cubic feet of garbage. I can park my car in there for the first time in a year.
TIFU by having my entire family witness me getting head in my car from my girlfriend (at the time)
The tale I'm about to weave happened some time ago. Figured I'd tell this story though so here it goes: I used to date this girl and early on in our relationship we were all about the "going out to bars" phase and hanging out every chance we could. Well it was a Friday night and my brother was playing guitar at a bar so I thought it'd be fun to join my parents and my sister and drink and listen to him play. My parents arrived at the bar first, and then my girlfriend and I arrived in my car. We parked a couple cars down from my dads car. There were a ton of cars so we found a spot and nestled right in. Cut to an hour in: We're having a grand old time, drinkin and yuckin' it up with my family. Well I look at my girlfriend and she flashes me the, "sexy eyes" and of course me being a drunk and horny 23 year old decides to flash em back. So i pretend I'm going outside with her to have a smoke and we go to my car and it's pretty dark out. Noone is around. I triple check to look for people and then when I assume its safe i pull out my log and she starts giving me the ol blowie. Now I'm in the car for a good 15 minutes with her and we were both drunk, but not completely useless...but we both must of lost track of time because we were so in the moment that we didn't realize the "gig" my brother was playing let out.... I hear the knock on the window first and we both jump about 2 feet in the air in our seats. I look up. My sister starts walking away shaking her head. I see my mom with the most horrified look on her face. My brother is loading up my dads car with his music equipment. My dad just turned and tried to hurry my mom back to their car. Meanwhile my girlfriend pretends to be looking for a contact while I'm struggling to zip up my jeans. The next day my girlfriend and I had plans for dinner with my parents. I wanted to get ahead of the situation to gauge my dad's reaction and to hopefully find out what exactly they saw. So I begin to open my mouth when he cuts me off and says "so we're having chicken for dinner tonight". "Cool dad, but is a vegetarian". And without missing a beat my dad says: "not from what we saw last night....unless you have a broccoli dick." Ladies and gentlemen, my father. Tl:dr - my entire family caught me getting a blowjob from my girlfriend at the time.
AITA for making my son give up the signifiers of wealth at school (designer clothes and sneakers, being driven in nice cars) because he was making fun of kids for being less wealthy than us?
I am a mother to a teenage boy. The father is hardly in the picture, he pays child support and that's about it, he is very absent otherwise. Another relevant thing, I'm pretty well off, I work in tech. my son's father is extremely wealthy and the court order for child support is enough to pay for the best for my son. He goes to a fairly competitive private school, is in a lot of extracurriculars that cost a decent bit, etc... I found out from school administration just this month that my son had been bullying several students for being less wealthy.. for being dropped off at school in a budget sedan, for having name brands clothes that are not as expensive as other name brands... I was appalled by his behaviors I had a talk with him about how this was wrong, and also about how it's not something that he should have any personal pride in. He has no job, no savings, no investments, no wealth of his own. By totally random chance he happened to be born into good circumstances. And that's it. The school admin and I arranged an apology between him and all the kids he was bullying I also decided that this year, we're thrift shopping for clothes. No more brand name sneakers or clothes. And rather than driving him to school and activities in the porche or the jaguar, I'm driving him everywhere in my '92 jeep that was one of my first cars that i mostly keep around for nostalgia and off roading. It's really beaten up, I've rolled it, taken off the doors, tried to fix the paint with rattle cans at one point lol (young and dumb at that point) And for any activities he joins, he can borrow club equipment instead of getting his own bought. He was really upset about it all, especially being driven to school and activities in the Jeep. He said that it was causing problems with his friends, he was looking bad at school, his friends parents didn't want their kids getting in such an old vehicle with no doors. He also said that it was embarrassing him for me to pretend he's poor... His dad, who overall has been very absent, got upset with me because apparently word had gotten around his circles that his son was being driven around town in "a junker" and that I was making him use the club gear for sports instead of his own. And that was not a fair punishment because "impressions matter" and it will affect the rest of his life" AITA for having this approach to parenting my son who was bulling kids for being "poor"? I don't buy him new designer things or drive him places in luxury cars anymore, we shop at thrift stores and if I am taking him to school I drive a car from 92.
