SWISS NACHBARIN can't park [Is this appropriate?]

So of course I assumed my lovely neighbour would get the hint by me closing a bit too close to her to make her aware of her actions but she's totally oblivious so I thought I gotta up my game a little bit and write her a note instead... but before I do, I thought I would consult the englishforum member's wisdom to make sure I'm not steping on anyone's foot here....


So anyway here is the note I prepared earlier...






PLEASE ADVISE!!!

Re: SWISS NACHBARIN can't park [Is this appropriate?]

the guy in the parking spot next to my gf is ALWAYS over the line. she has left him a note which made it worse. so we switched spots for a bit and I started parking next to him. I used to be a valet guy so I can park VERY close) a few times of less than a cm between cars has helped a bit but sometimes he still does it in which case I also do it.

mind you when I park this close I am still withing MY spot thats how bad it is.

Re: SWISS NACHBARIN can't park [Is this appropriate?]

I have a Swiss co-worker who after parking his car he gets out to measure the distance between his tires and the lines to be sure he parked dead-center. If not he gets back in to pull out and back in to make it perfect (often repeating this several times till it's absolutely perfect!).

Re: SWISS NACHBARIN can't park [Is this appropriate?]

I can maybe understand if it was a big car and if the parking spot was too small... but the fact the car is tiny and that I'm not normally parked up when she does this, means she has ample space to get the car perfectly in the middle, this not only helps both of us to get in and out of our cars easily but it would also prevent small bumps and scratches caused by opening the passenger car door.

I just park as close to her on the passenger door side and I can also park very close but I don't think she's doing it on purpose but rather as a result of ineptitude and inability to park! Which means that if she reverses she might cause a bigger problem!

I am not that pedantic but normally open the door to make sure I have enough space to get out and that my neighbour has enough to open her/his door too, but I guess my neighbour has got other things on her mind to care that much whether I'm gonna be able to open my door without wrecking her car!

Re: SWISS NACHBARIN can't park [Is this appropriate?]

All the stereotypes of women drivers aside, a week ago I saw a woman trying to return a Mobility car at Giesshübel. She couldn't find the center of the parking spot in either dimension (the only reason the 3rd dimension was correct was thanks to gravity). When I walked off, the car was literally halfway off the spot.

A full size parking spot.

In an empty parking lot with no cars within 10m.

In a f••king Smart.
