    Perhaps it's because our visitors park on our front lawn... and they can't when some random parks in the way.

    So I'll join with with being irrational.
    We are sooo alike!!!!!

    Aaah, you angry angry suburb dwellers. Come round to my place. We don't even have a parking spot, we have to fight the rest of our neighbours for one. And every man and his clever cycling dog parks their bikes on 'our' walkway. Love thy neighbour, folks.

    It never worried me until we lived in Perth for 18 months....in the suburb we lived the new houses were required to have irrigation in the front yard, including the nature strip. Not so cool when people park on them and break them and you don't figure it out until you have wasted quite a lot of very expensive (omg water is expensive in Perth) running down the street!

    Bash a few star pickets into the ground. That will fix her. You may not have been able to say anything to your neighbours but that message will be loud and clear.

    This is me to a T!! I know it's irrational but it drives mad when I see a car out the front of my house when they're visiting someone 2 doors down and there was parking in front of their home

    I hear you, OP. For some reason, I think it looks kind of boganish to have cars parked on the nature strip. And its bad for the lawn. I get especially peeved when people in our apartment block park on the nature strip when there are parks available out the front of our building on the street. Why??! And when it's busy, I can cope with parking 50-100m down the street, why can't they (younger, fitter types, mind you)? I guess i have been more concerned lately due to us putting our place in the market (but we fortunately sold it without needing any open homes).

    Not many things annoy me, but this...
