Get out of my driveway!
Report this Post
Can't Post

About leaving topropes hanging, let me explain my hostility and anger:

I have 2 driveways at home, one is at the front of the house, can hold 4 cars, and the second is on the side. This side driveway shares an access with the local water tower like so;



Behind said water tower there is a big soccer field, park, forrest, conservation area, just a big public space that people love to use, including myself.

There's a sign that says "no parking" in this access driveway so that park users know to park on the street, 20ft away, and most people are good about it.

Except soccer moms.

Every fucking night I get home from work to find my driveway blocked by some minivan, because the driver was too ignorant to give a fuck about the sign or my access to my own space.



I've left notes on windshields: friendly ones - "Hey, I can't get into my driveway, please park on the road next time :)", less-friendly ones - "Thank you for blocking access once again, the next time I'm calling the bylaw office", and angry ones - "Move your fucking car or I will have it towed".

I'm now at the point where I want to slash tires.

But why not park in my main driveway you ask? Well, let me answer that for you! My dad comes home 2 hours before me and parks on the left side of the drive, my mother an hour before me and parks on the right. We also leave the house in the same order. If I want to park in the main driveway, I need to drag someone out so we can play car-shuffle every night. Nothing painful, just inconvenient.

A few times, I parked on the street... and got a ticket. Another time I parked behind the offending minivan... and got a ticket - they didn't. I called the city to have them ticketed, they take up to 4 hours to come up, and by then, soccer mom is gone and I'm in bed so I don't care anymore.

No, the most effective way to deal with it is to call the local towing company. They will come and haul the car away at no charge to myself, and they will kindly deposit it at the local impound where it is strictly the problem of the minivan owner.

So how does this become a climbing post?

When I go to the local crag and see 5 topropes set up and nobody on them, it's like leaving your car in front of my driveway.

I can't safely or conveniently access the route when your rope is there. I can try to climb around it, like I could drive across my lawn to get to my driveway, but why should I?

If you don't have the common sense or consideration to pull your rope before walking away, I'm going to do it for you.

Just like I feel oh-so-tempted to key the minivan or slash the tires, I want to slice the rope in half. Maybe if you had to replace a few tires, or a few ropes, you wouldn't leave your shit lying around like you own the place.

Now to be clear, I'm not asking for advice on how to handle either situation, I don't give a shit about what you think I should do. This is just to explain my position on such a matter.

If you're hanging out in S. Ontario, you leave a cluster-fuck of ropes hanging all over a bunch of routes in a reasonably popular climbing area, walk away, and I come across it... I'll ask around to see who it belongs to, maybe say "don't be a douche" and leave it at that. But don't be surprised to find it in a knotted heap at the bottom of the cliff, with a little note that says "with love". Don't ask "Why is my rope in the mud instead of hung up after I left it for 3 hours?", you know why.

These images have not properly been majidified. I don't understand them. You need more arrows and some fake rocks.

Also, you may be the queen of your driveway but you aren't the queen of the crag. That is, unless you own a tiara. Then carry on with proper destruction.
