Hi, I'm new to forum, but have actually lived in USJ for the past 10 years.
I have this beef with the people who live in the house on the left of mine. There are at least 5 singles renting that house (one of the occupants is a little kid of 6-7 yrs old), & all of the adults own a car each.
The problem is they keep parking their cars in front of my gate, or when their friends come they also happily park at my gate even though their own gate is vacant. For what reason, I don't know. But it's really annoying especially when I have to go out.
Telling them nicely to move their cars is not effective. They are extremely rude & arrogant, & can tell us that "they can park wherever they choose to, & it's nobody's business". Some of them even show us their middle finger. Once I came home, & found that one of their friends had parked right in front of my gate & I had to honk for a good 5 minutes before the car owner came out of the house, grumbling. Then one of them who rents next door even had the cheek to say loudly that they were living with "f*cking inconsiderate neighbours". She even called me a b*tch, & I said back "takes one to know another."
Yesterday I wanted to go out, I opened my gate, & found one of them had conveniently parked her car right across my gate, totally blocking it. It took her a good 20 minutes or so to slowly crawl out of the house & move the car. And she had the cheek to glare at me as if it was my fault that she had to move her car (from outside MY gate). I didn't say a word to her.
Anyone can suggest some ways to educate these people? I'm sick & tired of this happening on a regular basis. My mum is alone in the house during the day when I go to work & these people come & go at all hours. I worry that one of them (these are able-bodied youths in their 20s-30s) may harass her while I'm out. I've wanted to go to the police many times, but my mum is afraid they will take it out on her when she's alone in the house.
I did get some suggestions from friends to hang No Parking signs at my gate, but I doubt that will do much good. The way these people are behaving, the more they see signs telling them not to park, the more they will do it.
The landlord of that house lives in Brunei, & doesn't care who rents his house as long as he gets his money. In the past, he had a big fight with one of the other neighbours & migrated. Then he rented out the house, & I have no idea where he found these people.
2 of the cars have Penang number plates... & so do some of their friends' cars. The cars with the Penang plates are the ones who keep parking at my gate.
I'm really disappointed that there are such uncivilized people around. & it's stressful to go out or come home each day, not knowing if you have to create a scene just to be able to freely move in & out of your own home... or will you be late for any appointments because these people happily leave their cars at your gate & then disappear.
Tonight came home & one of them actually parked his car right in the middle of the road outside my gate. I had to horn for 5 minutes nonstop at midnight before the guy slowly crawled out & took his time moving his car. Then he stopped the car behind my car for a few minutes like waiting for me to get down or something. I took my time getting out of my car. He got down at the same time as me & came very close. I just ignored him & he didn't say anything or do anything or even look at me. Another Penang car plate. Really fed up. I'm pretty sure he expected to leave his car in the middle of the road all night long if i hadn't come back & honked him out of his slumber.
