Were you trying to get out, or just didn't want him there?

Start with Community Watch. Does is always a live person to talk to but I also hate phone trees.

They were probably busy with 911 calls and/or other stuff. One just has to wait one's turn.

Either way he has no right to block your drive way

im surprised they didn’t show up , I would think showing up to arrest the lawn guy blocking the driveway for a half an hour would be a top priority , oh my thank god the AC guy is here I can tell how boring it’s been today by still being on here

I strongly suspect there is more to this story (the other side, that is)

If I didn't want to get cart or car out, it would not bother me.
Not as if contractor was parking overnight.
If I was going out, I would have just asked the person to let me out.
Attitude is all in those situations!

Ahhhh, classic PIP posting. Previously Important Person. I demand the police drop everything they're doing and respond to my incredibly minor complaint IMMEDIATELY!!! I'm p*ssed off because the landscaper dared to tell me to "F*ck Off!"

If they don't I'm going to make the obligatory donut joke, and post about my whinging in my favorite online forum, and then I'm going to follow-up with an "I pay your salary!" claim.

Yeah- your share of the entire county's taxes broken all the way down is between one quarter and one dollar per police officer's salary. Here's your fricken quarter back, geeez.

And if he had a sudden emergency situation? Sorry blocking someones driving is just wrong.

I would have asked politely though.

Agree. Have the police show up once or twice and maybe they'll stop doing that. I have had contractors half block my driveway many times and they are always facing the wrong direction so when they get out of their trucks they generally are standing on one of my irrigation heads, on one occasion they actually had their tire parked on my irrigation head which was destroyed and no they would not pay for it. I have politely asked them to move, some do and some don't give a crap. I've also found them filling their equipment gas tanks on my lawn and that is a definite no-no. The larger companies don't do this but the small one truck independents that are here today and gone tomorrow are the ones that don't care about anything but getting paid. My neighbor had a moving truck blocking their driveway, it was a van type trailer towed behind a box truck and they refused to move it so he called the police, the police showed up and they got a ticket for expired plates, and promptly moved it. The neighbor also called the company and let them know exactly what happened and why it happened.

if I had an emergency and someone was blocking 80% of my driveway, I would have backed out over my frigging lawn

come on... these guys work in the damn hot sun all year long, doing what we no longer want to do....trying to earn a living

sitting in your A/C home complaining about someone parking close to you driveways is 'bush league'
