There are two types of drivers in the world — those that understand that things won't always go their way, and those that are likely to freak out over the most minor of inconveniences. While the more relaxed driver might mutter under their breath at someone's horrid parking job, they're likely to forget about it and go about their day. On the other hand, the second kind of driver might be more inclined to leave a passive-aggressive note on someone's windshield. Now, take a look at some of the hilarious notes that people have left on cars and pray you don't get one yourself.
We're All People Here
Sometimes, all you need is a non-threatening note in order to get your point across. The person that wrote this note just thought they'd let this driver know that they were seriously inconvenienced by their park job.
We're going to assume that this note was written somewhere outside of the United States. This is so, since most people in America would most likely have replaced the word "bloody" with a much more vulgar word.
This person must have parked their car extremely poorly and left it for a long time. At least long enough for someone to type this letter up and even add a picture. It's probably good that they do this because the note would be a lot less effective if the dog was a really poorly drawn dog.
You must know how bad you messed up if somebody put in the effort to go onto their computer and print something out.
Even Grumpy Cat Is Mad At You
This person decided to put their artistic skills to use in order to let this person know how mad they are. While they might think that they really got their point across, this note might make most people crack a smile for its originality, and who doesn't like Grumpy Cat?
If I found this on my windshield I might even end up framing it and putting in on the wall because it's just that funny.
All That Work For Nothing
If you live in a place where you have to shovel snow in order to park, taking a spot that was shoveled by someone else is a big mistake. Nobody wants to shovel snow. It's hard work being so cold and wet when all you want to do is go inside.
Coming home to see someone riding on the coattails would be nothing short of infuriating. However, chances are, this person knew what they were doing wrong, they just chose to do it anyway.
Drawing The Line
This person's park job is truly amazing. They must have been intoxicated or something because it's unbelievable that someone really cares this little. The car is literally straddling two parking spots so they're not just inconveniencing one but two people.
Luckily, it looks like someone had some chalk on hand a decided to draw a little diagram from the driver. Now, the next time this lunatic needs to park, they have their own personal spot just for them.
Oh Jack, No
Hitting someone's car and not leaving your information is way worse than someone that takes up two parking spots, or even ten for that matter. It's your duty as a driver to own up for your mistakes and suffer the consequences.
While everyone thought that Jack was doing the wrong thing, he was really just covering for himself. Seeing this on your windshield would ruin anyone's best days. Jack will get what he deserves soon enough.
That must be quite frustrating to come home and not be able to pull into your own driveway. Clearly, it was annoying enough to this person that they took the time to draw out a diagram and step-by-step instructions about how to park along the curb.
They even threw in a little pro tip on how to take a shower, just in case the person didn't know how to properly do that either.
Not The Potato Clan!
This person went so far as to even make some potato sculptures to show how annoyed they are. This is definitely a unique note to let this person know that they did something wrong.
We feel that it must have been pretty effective because who would want to do this again if the person was actually nice about their complaint? Then again, it might be interesting to see what they mean when they threaten to "bring out the produce."
Movie References For The Win
If you were unaware, this note is referencing the comedy movie Office Space, with this particular scene becoming a viral meme on the Internet. Most people would probably get the reference, but it would sure be confusing if the person that parked their car didn't.
Even though it's just a stick figure drawing, we have to commend the artist for their work — it's pretty impressive and definitely gets the point across. We wonder if they reference movies on all the notes they leave people.
Laying It All Out
This annoyed neighbor laid out the whole situation for this person who apparently doesn't know how to park a car. There is very little animosity in the note and instead explains exactly what the situation is and how it needs to be fixed.
This person seems pretty selfless and is more concerned with the person has to park next to them than themselves. Also, their illustration is impressively detailed, hopefully enough so the person doesn't do it again.
When you're in a tight situation like this person, there's no time to find somewhere to park or put quarters into a machine, you're in a race against time. Your best bet is to just write a note real quick and pray that you don't get a ticket.
If a police officer ended up giving them a ticket that's a cold move on their part. Since when is it a crime to run to the bathroom for fear of soiling yourself?
The Recognition They Deserve
There's nothing quite as rewarding as giving someone a certificate of congratulations for being terrible at something. Although the note is meant to be ironic, it's not unreasonable to think that some people might be proud of themselves for achieving this level of success for pissing people off.
If their car has been there for more than a month, chances are they truly don't care who they are inconveniencing and might take this certificate as a compliment.
Sometimes a windshield note can be just as offensive as the parking job it's addressing. This person wasn't impressed by someone's parking job, and compared them to Stevie Wonder. Wonder might be blind, we'd bet even he could park better than this person.
Still, it takes a pretty insensitive person to come up with this note. We get the message they're trying to send, but don't they know it's 2018, not 1998? Would call this tasteless or hilarious?
That's A Paddlin'
We love this throwback to a classic Simpsons joke. Speaking of growing up, the old man just remarked about how everything he did resulted in a "paddlin'" Now this poor driver has been put on notice.
It's not nice to park in someone else's spot. They're marked for a reason. Let this be a hilarious lesson to anyone who has ever committed this heinous crime. For the sake of the sanity of those around you, please don't.
Another Natural Disaster
This person's parking is reminiscent of a natural disaster. If we got this card in our car, we'd be laughing and horrified all at the same time! At this point, you can no longer say "too soon" to Katrina jokes.
They're insensitive for sure, but so are most things in this world if you want to analyze it. Let's just hope this person begins parking better. Eventually it will be too soon and all the laughs will stop.
Take The Bus
Really, more people should be willing to take public transportation anyways. This card makes an interesting proposal about people who are incompetent parkers. Maybe they should be forced to take public transportation. We can't say we disagree.
Also, where can we buy a set of these cards ourselves? This a great passive-aggressive way to let someone know they need to be more considerate. We'd love to be passive-aggressive with a set ourselves. Would you use these?
That Smiley Face Though
If there was an award for the most passive aggressive individual on the planet it would very, very likely be the writer of this note. If you're trying to up the level of pettiness in your life, listen up.
The writer starts their argument with a fact — the owner of the vehicle parked in his or her parking spot. All is fine and dandy until the writer segues into the light threat that they've recorded the driver's license plate. Then things take a turn for the worse as they detail what is in store if this happens again (hint: lots and lots of Vaseline). Signing off with a smiley face is the cherry on top of the passive aggressive cake.
The World's Worst Prize
Achievement unlocked? For being the most inconsiderate parker in the neighborhood, this person won an award! That's pretty amazing. We hope they prepared a speech! This note is great, and the person who left their car there for so long should be ashamed.
It only makes us more upset that they used a small car. It's EASIER to park a small car correctly. You almost need to try to park poorly in a small car! Achievement definitely unlocked...
An Afternoon Snack
Although we can't fully decipher what the second note says, it's safe to say that the one written in peanut butter definitely sends a message. We wonder what this person did in order to deserve two separate notes and also how they drove their car with all of that peanut butter blocking their view.
The people that came up with this diabolical idea might have wanted to think it through because the car is probably going to be there longer now that the driver has to clean it off before they can drive.
They Paid The Price
If this note doesn't want to make you be more careful how you park your car, then nothing will. Another driver accidentally hit their car and ended up scratching it too while they were trying to make it better.
However, they did not leave their information because apparently the other driver had taken up two spaces when he parked. This is by far one of the most passive aggressive notes that we've seen yet and we'd even go so far as to say it's way over the line.
Save It For The Track
Apparently, this person's neighbor likes to rev their engine early in the morning, waking up the entire morning in the process. We're not sure if they're trying to be cool or if they think that it will warm up their engine or interior of the car.
What we are sure of is that the whole neighborhood is not happy with this person, and for good reason. At the end of the day, it looks like the people that wrote this note just want to keep them in the racing game.
Passing The Buck
Wow, this person was not playing around when they wrote this letter. We're not sure why they didn't just find another parking spot, but that's none of our business. While the parked person's car might have received some damage it might be best to just leave it alone rather than give this person a call.
Not only will they make you pay for all of the damage but they will probably do something a lot worse to you based on their attitude.
You know you need to go back to parking school when Optimus Prime disapproves of your skills. As a big rig turned robot fighting for humans, he sees this person as more a danger than Megatron.
Hopefully, this person realizes how much they upset Optimus Prime and have never parked poorly since. The last thing anyone wants is for the entire team of Autobots to have to come back and dispense some parking justice. Actually, we'd pay to see that movie.
This note is fully justified until the end. The person has been very understanding with this unknown car. Did you know that by law a car can't be parked in the same spot for 72 hours?
Don't quote us on that, but this person is more than in the right to let the rude parker know. Especially when the person doesn't even live in the same neighborhood. Now, thanks to some passive-aggressive underlining, this person will never come back.
Just The Basics
One of the first things everyone learns as a young driver is how to park. It's one of the most simple and basic skills you need to master to drive. This person needs to back to school.
Maybe they didn't see that they were blocking a driveway. Maybe it was too dark. Maybe they didn't care. Let's start a GoFundMe to send them back to school so they can get the education they are sorely lacking.
Crash And Burn
Parking spaces are marked for a reason. If you choose to take two spaces when all you need is one, you deserve all the bad things coming your way. Whoever took up multiple spaces has karma coming.
We imagine the person who wrote this note has bad luck trying to park. You'd be amazed how many people ignore the parking space lines. The person who wrote this note is no longer surprised. They have decided to take action, and we thank them for that.
Let It Go
At least this person knows they weren't parked legally. Chances are they left their car somewhere too long in the winter. Then the door froze and they couldn't do anything.
We give them credit for knowing a ticket was coming, though. Too bad this parking officer wasn't feeling very sympathetic. To be honest, we're not either. We're laughing because there are plenty of ways to unfreeze your door in winter! There are even ways to keep your door from freezing in the first place.
This is proof that just because you have money, the world doesn't always need to cater to you. Disabled spaces exist for a reason, and now this BMW owner knows that reason.
It's not fair to ask this person's grandmother to walk certain lengths to visit her grandchildren. We're "so sorry" that this BMW driver would rather park inconveniently so they don't have to walk to far. Honestly, this not could have been much, instead it was just a reality check.
It's a trend! We know this isn't the first note like this on this list, and we can't believe how many people have pulled this trick. Are people really that scared about their insurance going up?
Better question; are there really that many people in this world driving without insurance? That just seems silly to us. Who knew the world was so full of so many inconsiderate people. Our eyes have been opened. We're never going outside again!
Color The Turtle
We can't stop laughing at this note. As we've already said, parking in the lines is basic driving. Coloring in the lines is basic for a three-year-old. It only makes sense this person should start back at the beginning.
Also, look at that turtle. This person has left this note before. They probably have a ton waiting in the car just for this opportunity. We're going to start doing the same thing. It's one of the best notes we've seen.
An Idle Threat
Who hasn't dreamed of this? Someone must have missed an important meeting to leave this note. They also must drive a pretty big car to be able to make this threat. Most people would just call a tow truck and have the offender impounded.
Not this person. They want whoever is blocking their driver to learn a lesson, not take a minor hit to their checking account. This would be a major hit, and we'd pay to watch it happen!
Someone is trying to be really hip with this passive aggressive not. Facebook refused to install a dislike button, so they made their own and they're using it to "dislike" people who can't park.
There's more to this "dislike" too that we can't show you. It's very not safe for work. Trust us, though, it gets the message across. We wonder what social media trend is next for passive aggressive notes. We'll have to look at the comments section for inspiration.
A Loud Problem
This note is all too relatable. At some point in our lives, we've all lived near someone who's car or motorcycle is so loud they set off all the other car alarms on the street.
When the alarms are because of a car, that car usually needs to be fixed. The person who owns the car probably knows it needs to be fixed, they've just been too lazy to do anything about it. Maybe now they'll take action.
A Plea For Sympathy
This one might not be a note from a neighbor, but it is passive-aggressive and worth our attention. This poor soul is already broke and is tired of getting the same ticket over and over for their vehicle registration.
This is why you should never wait to do things until the last minute. If this person has paid their registration in a timely manner, then this wouldn't be an issue. Take notes, kids, always pay your bills before you buy video games.
Instructions Pictured Below
This was such a bad parking job, the person who left the note left drawn instructions so the mistake would never happen again. You see, you want to pull straight into the parking space, not diagonally.
Those instructions make sense to us. We assume they would make sense to most other people as well. If nothing else, we hope that you, our humble reader, will never make parking mistakes again. Not that you ever have. Have you?
Poor Singing Reviews
This note should be printed in every dictionary as a model example of sarcasm and passive aggression. The all-caps at the top is priceless, as is the singing/screaming comment. You can practically hear the terrible performance in your mind without having been there.
We also appreciate the use of two different colored marked to ensure that the complaints stand out more than the reviews do. Each review, however, is masterful. The partying neighbors probably felt like an American Idol contestant who was just annihilated by Simon Cowell after reading this.
Every Step You Take
The Police's "Every Breath You Take" is arguably one of the creepiest songs in rock n’ roll history. However, the lyrics are a perfect fit for a downstairs neighbor who is sick of hearing the person upstairs.
The song’s chorus normally ends “I’ll be watching you,” but this clever complainer changes the line to “Is really audible through the floor.” They could have tried to rhyme with the song’s line by saying something like “I’ll be hearing you,” but the abrupt shift in tone at the end is way funnier.
Don't Mess With Protective Parents!
This note is polite and kind all the way through, with the exception of just one little word: Godless. That word stands out not only because it's written in all caps and underlined, but because it doesn’t seem to fit the tone of the rest of the message.
Clearly, Barb and Tom wanted to toe the line between representing themselves as good people to their new neighbors, and making clear that they are a force not to be reckoned with. This note goes to show that parenting can bring out the lion in even the kindest of people.
The Fighting Couple
While this note is a bit of a downer, there are two key elements that make it hilarious: the heart signoff and the 2:00 AM timestamp at the bottom. Some couples bicker more than others, but you know it's a major issue when the entire building wants to complain about it.
At least the author of the note didn’t mention any specifics about what their "personal business" consists of. They also did a kind thing by offering other options to the couple, such as fighting out in the car. We probably would have also suggested counseling.
Taken 3: The Trash Bag
Anyone who's seen Taken is probably familiar with Liam Neeson’s popular line, shown here. The line is delivered immediately after his daughter in the film is taken, hence the movie’s title.
The intense film is precisely what makes this sign so wonderful. A desperate situation such as having your daughter abducted is nothing compared to having a trash bag left outside of your door. However, after so many times of your neighbor’s trash bag being left out, you might feel as enraged as Neeson’s character.
The Stolen Ferret Water Bottle
It's surprising how often packages are stolen by the neighbors. What’s more shocking is that a package containing a ferret water bottle was taken. The angry neighbor who wrote this letter mentioned that the bottle was intended for their cat, but ferrets are also a popular domestic pet, as was the case in the movie Along Came Polly.
Whether the thief actually has a pet ferret or stole the package prematurely, it’s about as funny a case of stolen property as you can get. Props to the person who posted this note for ending it with sarcasm.
Not What He Meant By A Painted Fence
This passive-aggressive note is charming for many reasons. For one, it is written in large letters across a fence, which means it'd be just about impossible for anyone driving by to miss it. In fact, you can tell that the photograph was taken by someone driving by, through the passenger’s side window.
Another great aspect of this note is that it technically accomplishes what the neighbor had asked. The fence is an eyesore and would probably be better off being torn down and replaced altogether. However, that’s for the owner to decide, not Bob.
The Sarcasm Winner
This letter definitely takes the top prize in sarcasm. The repetition of the word "awesome" is clearly meant to convey how loud the speakers are. Furthermore, you could replace every positive adjective in this note with the word “loud” and it would still make sense, and probably be more honest.
We'd imagine that the person writing this looked a bit crazy at the time, like when you’re so angry that you burst into laughter. Something about the word “envious” in the sign off really drives home the message, as does the mention of “hundreds” of neighbors.
The Barking Dog
Most people who have dealt with a neighbor's noisy dog would be able to understand the desperation evoked in this note. Unlike most of the other letters we’ve seen, this one isn’t demanding that a specific action be taken. It also doesn’t so much as mention a threat or potential consequence.
Whoever wrote this was beyond the point of writing a thought-out message. We imagine that they were in some sort of catatonic state when they stumbled up to the wall and wrote "Your dog barks," and then followed it up with half a dozen more “and barks.”
Stop Throwing Cheese!
Rather than writing a note and putting it on Eric's door, these neighbors made a public announcement about what he’s been doing. Most people wouldn’t dream of throwing cheese at all, especially onto the roof of their neighbors.
What remains a mystery is how these neighbors became aware that there was cheese on their roof in the first place. They must have a rooftop deck. Either that or Eric has poor aim and it landed on the window a time or two. Either way, he certainly got what he deserved now that the entire neighborhood knows of his ill deeds.
Not How We Do It In The States
Its no secret that some European customs stray from American norms and vice versa. However, it isn't fair to refer to the person as your "German neighbor" and then remind them what privacy means. Despite being a mild form of stereotyping, it is a funny note.
We don’t want to know what the author saw that prompted them to write this note. The request to either shut the blinds or kill the lights suggests that something was seen that shouldn’t have been, and that’s all anyone really needs to know. Your imagination can take things over from there.
A Fair Warning About Call Of Duty
Self-awareness is an important trait to have, and one that this neighbor clearly has a lot of. It takes someone who is very comfortable with themselves to be able to admit that they can get carried away with videogames.
It's funny that they put the words "commotion" and “slurs” in quotation marks, as though they are a more modest version of what they really are meaning. You have to wonder how bad things got before the cops were called on them.
No Pictures, Please
Sometimes, living in urban areas comes along with a lack of privacy. We've all seen an action film where a detective is able to get the evidence they need simply by peering into a high rise building at night. Especially when it comes to balconies, you can’t be too sure who’s watching.
However, this sign seems like it’s targeted at someone specific, rather than being a general message to the public. It’s a creepy thought, but what if this photograph was actually captured by the very person the sign was addressing?
For Aesthetic Purposes
This note is a little harder to read do to the person's cursive, so we’ll spell it out for you: "Dear Homeowners: Please keep your blinds lowered (at all times) across front of your home– for aesthetic purposes." It’s then signed with a thank you from a walker, jogger, and bicyclist.
We can’t say for sure if there is an individual walker, jogger, and biker or if they are all three the same person. Everything about this note is vague and unusual, which is what makes it so funny. Plus, how closely is this person looking to be perturbed by the decor inside of their neighbor’s home?
You Are Dinosaur?
This note goes to show that sometimes the simpler, the better. For those who may not be as familiar with poetic forms, a haiku is a poem if three lines, the first and last of which have five syllables, and the middle one with seven syllables.
That's why the author had to omit "a" from the last line to pull off a long word like “dinosaur.” But that also adds to the humor. Writing a haiku isn’t as simple as it looks, but then again, neither is telling your brand new neighbor to pipe down.
We're going to go out on a limb here and guess that this person didn’t really think that their neighbor was performing an exorcism. The mention of expelling demons was probably referring to other activities that were equally loud.
Since they requested said expellings to be limited to Friday and Saturday nights, we’d guess that it was partying on the weeknights that prompted this neighbor to complain. We would give this note five stars for creativity.
Christmas In March
You know that whoever this note is referring is probably the same neighbor that leaves their Christmas lights up year-round. That's the only kind of person we could imagine playing holiday music first thing in the early morning three months after Christmas ended.
The emphasize of "VERY CLEARLY" suggests that it isn’t merely a muffled jingle that they’re hearing. Rather, it’s every lyric of every Christmas song that they’re having to put up with. Kudos to them for lasting so many months before finally having to say something. We also appreciate the “Merry X-mas” sign off.
Who Called The Cops On My Flamingoes?
In case you can't see those itty bitty words on the sign, it reads "TO: WHOEVER CALLED THE POLICE ON MY LAWN INSTEAD OF TALKING TO ME LIKE A GOOD NEIGHBOR: YOUR MOVE." Apparently, someone wasn’t very fond of a few pink flamingo decorations.
It seems absurd to call the cops on someone’s choice of lawn decor. Even worse, it’s not like they have a lawn with terrible curb appeal. The grass is green and everything seems generally well-manicured. Perhaps the complainer has an intense phobia of flamingoes. Whatever the case, we’re dying to know what happened next.
The One Advantage Of Having Thin Walls
While hearing someone else's television can be incredibly annoying, at least this neighbor might have the advantage of discovering a new movie to watch. You have to wonder if the person who received this note actually responded back with the movie title.
In all seriousness, this message was probably written with a heavy dose of sarcasm. Especially with that blunt period at the end rather than an exclamation point, we aren’t buying that the author gave a care in the world what the movie was. If they did, they should have knocked on the door and asked to join in on the movie night.
Not The Giving Tree
There must have been a ton of neighbors stealing from this poor guy's tree for him to want to do something about it. Many people who grow their own produce end up with more than they can eat themselves. Not Mark, though.
He didn’t just put up a large sign near the tree; he made tiny notes to attach to the fruit itself. At that point, he may as well have picked all of the fruit before others could get to it. Clearly, this annoyed neighbor wanted to send a message.
Every Step You Take
The Police's "Every Breath You Take" is arguably one of the creepiest songs in rock n' roll history. However, the lyrics are a perfect fit for a downstairs neighbor who is sick of hearing the person upstairs.
The song's chorus normally ends "I'll be watching you," but this clever complainer changes the line to "Is really audible through the floor." They could have tried to rhyme with the song's line by saying something like "I'll be hearing you," but the abrupt shift in tone at the end is way funnier.
