I know someone already said it, but seriously, put the snow back.
The energy expended < the gratification of watching them shovel it out.
Bonus: Pack that shit HARD and, if you can find time, pour some water around the car so it'll ice up a bit.
I would have put the snow back.
At work in northern Canada, living in a motel, with temperatures around -40 in February. I came out at 0500 to find that someone had unplugged my vehicle and used my (very distinctive) cord to plug in their own.
I managed to barely get my vehicle started and while listening to my power steering pump moan and my valve lifters rattle, I retrieved my cord and took a long and very relieving morning piss on their door handles and side windows.
If someone watched me shovel a spot, then parked in it, I’d let them also watch me let all the air out of their tires.
Edit: I try to tell myself if everyone believed in the philosophy “an eye for an eye” there would be no humans left on earth. But sometimes I get angry.
Next bear post:
"Upstairs neighbor is always stomping around so I steal his spot when it snows"
I suggest you discover how awesome it is to listen to bagpipes every morning.
When I read “elephant impression” the first thing I thought of was their loud call, not their footsteps. I was imagining OP practicing the call of a bull elephant, and it made me chuckle.
I once finished cleared my car and went back inside to come out and find that the person parked next to me cleared the snow from their car by dumping it onto mine.
Don't miss living in apartment complexes.
Michigan me: that's really passive aggressive, they should have shoveled a spot for you after you talk to them about the misunderstanding after bringing over a craft brew to share.
Philly me: you idiot, you left a spot without a trash can marking it? You deserve to get it taken, moron.
Get wooden Dutch klompen. Surprisingly comfortable, and make a great house slipper.
I had someone steal my spot, forcing me to shovel a new spot. So I shoveled the spot next to theirs. And I'm put the snow up against their driver side door. Petty? Probably. Satisfying? Definitely.
Elephants actually walk quite gently. *Really* quiet too, no bullshit.
We had a game like this. My friends as I used to LAN Age of Kings in 2008 and watch tv. Nothing too crazy. We would get noise complaints every other night.
One night the officer shows up, I answer the door and he tells me here had been standing there for 15 minutes and hadn't heard anything. He said they'd no longer be responding to his noise complaints.
We would then "trip" or "move things around." We called it fuck the neighbors.
I'm pretty sure swooping a scooped spot in a snow state is an acceptable defense for murder. "You're charged with murdering your downstairs neighbor, chopping them up, and feeding them to pigeons. How do you plead?" "Not Guilty, your honor. They swooped the parking spot I scooped." "Case dismissed with prejudice. Someone get this guy a beer."
