Police investigate 'passive-aggressive parking vigilante'
Nasty note left on car parked outside unofficial parking lines in Seattle
Seattle police are investigating what they call a "passive-aggressive parking vigilante."
Earlier this year, someone painted unofficial parking lines along a one-block stretch along Whitman Avenue North in the northern part of the city. Last week, a woman received a nasty note on her car after she parked outside those unofficial lines.
According to a news release, the note said:
"Please do everyone a favor on this block, either learn how to park your car like a normal human being or put a bullet in your face you worthless piece of [expletive]. Go [expletive] yourself and have a bad day. Sincerely, Everyone."
The woman believes the note may be from a neighbor who has complained about parking in the past.
Seattle police are asking neighbors to find productive solutions. In fact, Seattle police say anyone really interested in parking should pursue a career in its parking enforcement division, cheekily adding the qualifications for working in the department include "remaining calm and emotionally detached in tough situations, and be a tactful, courteous communicator who has not smoked Angel Dust within the last five years. Must like dogs."
There was no word on whether any applications have been filled out.
