Just when you thought all the snarky notes had been written, we’ve rounded up a new collection of outrageous notes that people left (and found) on cars.
It’s always scary to see a note under your windshield wiper… until you find out it’s just a note from another Dave Matthews band fan spreading the love during their Costco run!
A fun little about this logo is that the fire dancer is an original piece of artwork by Dave Matthews himself. It is what he drew after being asked what he saw when he looked into a crowd at a concert while performing. It symbolizes a person letting go, dancing, and enjoying themselves.
Once upon a time, there was a poet who fancied himself quite the wordsmith. He spent hours poring over his poems, tweaking and tinkering with every word until he was satisfied that it was just right.
And while poems are historically known for using big, flowery, superfluous phrases, words, and language, this guy found that he didn't require fancy words or grand metaphors. And took a more simple approach to get his point across.
It seems that people often don't get how important self-awareness is. Thankfully, there are some fellow humans who volunteer to educate them on the matter.
Let's just hope that the person behind the parking violation understands irony well enough and doesn't consider this note as their first piece of fan mail.
Spreading Good Vibes
We all can agree that the last few years were pretty rough, making it really easy to become cynical and lose the skip in your step. But instead of getting upset about it all, somebody decided to keep things positive by sticking post-it notes with words of encouragement on the windshield of this car.
https://www.instagram.com/p/CFS0IgNHTWe/ What a delightful way to spread some good vibes and positivity to make someone's day a little better and their outlook a little brighter.
Confronting problems with your neighbors face-to-face can be awkward: you never know if they'll go crazy and start harassing you or, even worse, invite you over to have a civilized conversation about stuff.
Well, at least there's one way you can dodge that risk, and that's complaining like this guy did, with a note left on their neighbor's windshield. It gets the point across, and you don't need to deal with nosy neighbors, problem solved!
Big State of Mind
Truck drivers are not like us common folk. Or at least that's what they like to think. The truth is that on the inside, they are just as insecure as the next person, only with bigger cars.
Those that do own big cars like to think that their SUVs and pickup trucks convey an image of success and prosperity. But this note writer thought it would be cool to give one of those truckers a reality check and hopefully make them realize how they're not the only ones on the road.
Which Is It?
We can't tell if this note left on a windshield is a vague pick-up attempt or a passive-aggressive parking message. But either way, it's certainly more puzzling than anything. Maybe this mysterious note is the new version of what was once a no-nonsense way to express your hostility.
People often like to play mysterious games in real life, so it's not surprising that this has somehow carried over into the digital realm.
A Real Patriot
Is this just a more optimistic take on parking tickets, or can be grateful for a system that works really extend to getting parking tickets? Let's unpack what it means to be patriotic, shall we?
Being patriotic means having a deep love, devotion, and loyalty toward one's country. It means having a sense of pride in one's country's history, culture, values, and achievements and working towards its betterment. Ok, so maybe getting a parking ticket is part and parcel of that deal?
Dinner On Me?
What do we have here? It seems someone has decided to confess their feelings in ink and leave it on this windshield for the driver. It's like a romantic version of "Dear Santa."
Except, instead of asking for presents, they're asking for dinner. Let's be real, asking someone out on a note can be a bit cheesy, but at least it's more endearing than finding a passive-aggressive note about your parking.
Someone clearly has too much time on their hands if they feel it's necessary to alert authorities about how long someone else's car has spent in a certain parking space. All we can say is that it seems like there is a Karen in every community.
Why spend your time worrying about someone else's parking like this when there are many productive and enjoyable things that could have been done instead? Here are some suggestions: Meditate, stretch, or read a few pages of a book.
If you witness someone hit a parked car and drive off, there are a few steps you should take: First of all, get as much information as possible, like the license plate number, make and model of the car, and a description of the driver, if possible.
Take a picture or video of the car and the damage. Once you've done that, you can report the incident to the police. And lastly, you can always follow up with the car owner, they may want to contact you for more information or to thank you for your help.
Some people don't seem to realize that vandalizing cars is illegal and can result in serious consequences, including fines, imprisonment, and even a criminal record! While we all get annoyed with people parking badly, it is important to find constructive ways to express ourselves instead of resorting to destructive behaviors.
Let's focus more on building positive relationships and respecting other people's property. Vandalism is not something that should be encouraged or promoted in any way.
The bond between Pokemon fans is truly something special. Whether you're a long-time collector or a new player just starting out, there's a sense of camaraderie and shared enthusiasm that can be felt throughout the community. It's not uncommon to see fans display their love for Pokemon, even putting their plushy Pokemon toys on their dashboards.
Even in everyday life, Pokemon fans are quick to share love and support one another. No matter where you come from or what your background may be, if you love Pokemon, you'll be sure to hear about it.
Best Parking Ticket
There's nothing quite like the warm and fuzzy feeling of finding a nice note left instead of a parking ticket on your car. Receiving a smiley face on this note can brighten even the dreariest of days.
It's like a small reminder that there are still good people in the world who take into account your personal struggles. So next time you see someone else having a hard time or struggling, why not help them out? You never know how much it might brighten their day.
Yellow Means No!
This note might as well be in the dictionary under the definition of "passive-aggressive." That's how 'textbook' it is. In fact, we are sure it is being taught in passive-aggressive schools across the country. But we are also sure that passive-aggressive schools are a thing, so it is on you to decide if you want to take our word for it.
"Hello, yes, is this a passive-aggressive school? Great. I would like to enroll. I'll be expecting my angry parking notes starter pack to arrive in the mail in two weeks."
It's okay to sometimes be lazy enough to get stuck in front of a TV show you don't like just because you can't be bothered to look for the remote.
It is not okay to be lazy enough to park your car in a handicapped spot just because you don't feel like looking for a proper parking space.
Everyone knows the value of a parking space increases as every space gets taken with new cars filling up the parking lot. This can only mean the last space is the most valuable, and it's worth fighting for if space is limited.
This is so basic even crows know it. One particular crow loves his parking space so much he can't help but assert his dominance by attacking the windscreen wipers of any car that dares park in his space.
Oh, the joys of being a neighbor! Nothing quite beats the thrill of finding a passive-aggressive note on your car. I mean, who needs actual face-to-face communication when you can just write down your grievances on a piece of paper and hope your neighbor gets the hint?
It's like playing a game of clues, but instead of solving a murder mystery, you're trying to figure out which neighbor left the note about your parking.
Pens and papers are relatively easy to find when you need to scribble a quick note.
We all have store receipts or spare pieces of paper lying around in our bags. But produce? That's much harder to come by.
It seems that taking up two parking spaces with one car makes you a supervillain. Why else would a superhero feel compelled to intervene?
As friendly as Spiderman is, you don't want to make him ask you twice. The driver should be grateful for not finding his door handles webbed-shut.
The layers of things not making sense are reaching epic proportions here. Let's start with the bad driver who's under the impression they don't have to follow the rules of civilization.
Now we can move on to the sign. It looks like someone took that one step further and executed the sentence singlehandedly. They must be in great shape.
Some people can't be bothered with signs or regulations. They see an open spot — they park. They need a third party to put things in their faces or they will keep spacing out and ignore specific instructions.
This note is just for that kind of people.
If someone wants to leave a nasty note like this on the car they deemed parked terribly, that is well within their right. It is also their right to eat toenail clippings and wear crocs.
Sure, it would be gross and depraved, and they would be shaming themselves and their loved ones. But as luck would have it, under our system of government, it is their right to be barbarians.
It’s a tale as old as time: An ambitious driver parks their small car in a decently sized parking spot, only to return from their errands to find a mysterious note that doesn't even make sense.
Is this a cryptic letter where small and tiny mean something totally different? Maybe the mystery will be solved in a subsequent note. Maybe it's part of a grand scheme to write out the lyrics of a new song but can only be revealed once the master plan has been achieved. Life sure is full of mysteries.
Did someone actually go through all the trouble of fashioning a stack of custom-made business cards to pass around whenever they come across a badly-parked car?
Also, if Jesus, in fact, took tap dancing classes, we don't think he would appreciate you using his talent to shame other people for their terrible parking skills.
Happy Bad Parking Day!
We always say that fighting is best done with glitter. This party car is going to take hours to clean, making the driver fully regret acting like an idiot.
Our only question is how did they get the balloons inside the car, and what exactly are they filled with?
Let That Be a Lesson
When you write an angry-yet-funny note, you get that note posted online. When you get that note posted online, it turns viral.
When it turns viral, you make people laugh. When you make people laugh, that note becomes a little less angry and a little funnier. Good job.
While this note is definitely one of the more passive-aggressive ones, you do have to give its creator credit for creativity.
Not only did they go through the trouble of printing an actual note, but they added a cute, colorful drawing of a ferret.
This person was considerate enough to leave a free snack along with his note. While the 'STOP PARKING HERE' message is pretty clear, the hilariously placed slices of bread on the windshield should soften the blow of the note.
At least the car owner can make themselves a nice sandwich while they look for a new parking space.
Just Letting You Know
It must be nice for this note to be the first thing you see in the morning before getting in your car.
Not only do you not want to imagine two animals mating in your car, but you start to seriously wonder whether the person that left this note was trying to be friendly or cheeky.
Making Babies Cry
When you’re on the way back to your car, and you see a note attached to your windshield, it just makes your heart drop. More often than not, it's going to be negative, and finding a note like this can pretty much ruin your day.
While bad parking jobs happen all around the world, some joyless complainers are having a tough time dealing with those kinds of people. Some people just park terribly, but while many are getting on with their lives, there's always going to be that one person who enjoys leaving an angry note.
Let the Games Begin
The hit horror franchise, 'Saw,' is about a killer named jigsaw who wears a mask and makes people play deadly games. This windshield note should make a little more sense now.
The car owner is clearly sick of the little payment slips you have to leave on your windshield or risk getting a ticket.
The legendary Autobot leader, Optimus Prime, is an awe-inspiring leader that selflessly and endlessly fights to defend all life. If he has taken the time to write you a note, letting you know how he disapproves of your "horribly executed parking," then you know you messed up!
There are a few who rival Optimus Prime's prowess. He is easily the strongest of any Autobot his size. If you're not vigilant, you could easily land yourself on the dark side and end up friends with Megatron.
Nothing to Steal Here
Despite the fact that this is not a note that was left on someone’s windshield but a note that was generated by the car owner, it still belongs on this list because it is awesome.
Whoever owns the car is clearly sick of fixing the window, so they decided to get their message across in a humorous way.
A Particular Set of Skills
Whoever wrote this note has certainly taken some cues from Liam Neeson’s convincing portrayal in the movie "Taken." Although, to be fair, in the film, Neeson plays a father whose daughter was kidnapped.
Here the threats are directed at someone who can’t park, but nonetheless, if they don’t follow instructions, they will be found and – boxed in!
Feeling Like a Star
Sarcasm is the perfect outlet to deal with a person who habitually blocks the path people use to walk on.
In the meantime, he uses some guilt-tripping to share that he is very broke and sick of getting ticketed over and over again.
Never Get In
The person who wrote this note has quite a sense of humor. They put their complaints in an easy-to-understand manner while making a joke. Making sure that the whole matter was as civilized as possible. Is it hurtful and offensive? Yes. But it's also a little funny if you don't take it personally.
Angry cards with jokes are not like other notes left on cars. They aren't quite the passive-aggressive notes you most often find or the mean scribbles left by most people. These are quite special in that they show someone took great consideration when making them. So appreciate them, and just know, someone took a lot of time to let you know they think your parking is so bad, it deserves a card.
Although 'Game of Thrones' had aired its last episode, we are not going to risk any spoilers. Instead, we will just explain the note that was left on this windshield.
On the show, the Lannisters are famously known for executing anyone who gets in their way. Accordingly, whoever parked here should definitely feel threatened and start watching their backs.
That's A Paddlin'
Anyone who's familiar with the TV show "The Simpsons" will probably know how funny this meme became. While it's hard to convey what memes mean out of context, I'll try my best.
“That's a paddlin'” is a reference to a character on the Simpsons who would take minor misbehaviors and say, “that's a paddlin',” meaning he was going to punish the offender by hitting them with a paddle. “Parking in other people's spots? That's a paddlin'."
We All Scream – at This Guy
There is nothing quite like cold ice cream on a hot summer day. This poor guy just wanted to share that experience with his family on a lazy Saturday, but his plans went awry because someone decided to double park their brand-new Nissan Altima.
It’s a good thing he let this driver know the consequences of his actions.
Some people like using Bible verses to express their low-key aggression on social media, so it's not surprising that this little nugget of hostility has carried over to parking notes. While it's not an actual Bible verse, it's just made to look like one.
Is it just me, or does making a card look like a Bible verse seem a little infantile? Then again, it is a pretty creative way to let someone know you disapprove of their parking, albeit a little childish.
We've all had awkward exchanges with people about parking. Complaining about someone taking a free parking space is how some people let others know they're entitled freeloaders. It's a particularly obnoxious note to receive - I mean, c'mon, public parking is meant for the public, that means everyone.
Unfortunately, some people don't realize this and somehow think it's perfectly reasonable for them to reserve public parking spaces for themselves while leaving rude notes like this.
Instead of using harsh words or cursing whoever moved their bins to the park, they were super polite, but somehow the message still came shining through.
Just in case the recipient of the note got confused by all the kind words and the heart decoration, the sign-off could not be clearer.
As the human species relies less and less on words to communicate, pictures have taken on a crucial role in helping us convey just how annoyed we are at our fellow drivers.
This note straddles a fine line between adorable and just plain mean, but it certainly gets one's point across. As easy as they are to fire off, notes like these can be infuriating to receive, despite the cute bunny!
Have A Nice Day
Hold up, we actually found a note that says something nice! What a delightful change of pace from the typical notes found on so many cars. In a wasteland of notes left on cars, complimentary notes stand out as the hero we didn't know we needed.
With so much negativity out there, giving a genuine compliment can really make someone's day. A simple little note from a stranger can do that.
Responding in Kind
It seems that people often don't get how important expressing themself is, especially when it comes to leaving notes for random strangers. Thankfully, there are some fellow humans who are more than happy to respond in a kindly manner.
Hopefully, we can all learn a lesson here and see just how silly we look when we write an angry note in the vain hope that someone else might understand our frustrations.
Please Don’t Reproduce
If you really can’t stand somebody, then there’s no better way of expressing that to them than saying, “please don’t reproduce.”
Well, one driver apparently loathed the way another driver parked and decided to leave him a note along with a condom for safe sex. This is one hilarious prank.
I’ll Monster Truck You
The note writer doesn’t seem to care about what impounding will do for the car owner. He will not hesitate and to be honest, we don’t blame him. We know just how much that can ruin your day.
You can be sure that if this car blocks this person again, there will be serious consequences.
Not Worth It
Despite the fact that this is not a note that was left on someone’s windshield but a note that was generated by the car owner, it still belongs on this list because it is awesome. This hard-to-read note states: “There is nothing worth value in here.”
This is the appropriate response when your car keeps getting broken into. Whoever owns the car is clearly sick of dealing with burglars, so they decided to get their message across in a humorous way.
Driving a fancy car can sometimes lead to a sense of entitlement or superiority, which can, unfortunately, cause someone to disregard parking rules or other considerations.
Some people realize they are not the only ones on the road and should park in a considerate manner, but there are also some that are simply not aware of how their parking impacts others. Either way, it's always best to practice safe and considerate parking habits, regardless of the car you drive.
Bad Park You!
This note asking "WHY YOU BAD PARK?" is certainly a direct approach when it comes to complaining about bad parking. It's to the point and lets the parker know that you're so displeased with their parking you had to write them a note even though their broken English.
Surely if they can write an angry note in broken English, you can attempt to park a teeny bit better?
The last thing you want to do is upset the potato gang. This parker seems to have done exactly that, and now the potato gang is here to seek their revenge.
We appreciate a note like this; it gets its point across without being overly rude. We hope that a nicer and funnier note like this would be effective.
Parking is like trying to catch a Squirtle in Pokemon Go. You twist and turn, inching your way into a space that's just slightly bigger than your vehicle. And just when you think you've got it, a pedestrian walks by and throws off your entire game.
Suddenly, you're all turned around and wondering how you ended up with the front of your car facing the sidewalk. It's enough to make you want to throw in the towel and just park in the next state over.
The person who left this note thinks that this car owner’s life was, in fact, a mistake.
We get the idea from this that the person was probably parked that poorly to make somebody put this note on their car. Man, we wish we could see a picture of how the car was parked.
Passive aggressive notes - the perfect way to say what you mean without actually saying it! Whether it's a neighbor who keeps playing their music too loud or a person who doesn't park in the lines, nothing says, "I'm annoyed with you but don't want to confront you directly," quite like a passive-aggressive note.
It's like the notes are saying, "I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed... and I want you to know it."
An Actual Business Card
Is that a... business card? Did someone actually go through all the trouble of fashioning a stack of custom-made business cards to pass around whenever they come across a badly-parked car?
Who needs therapy when you can just leave a strongly-worded business card that reads, "Thanks for being a drain on society!" It's the ultimate power move - and it's also really funny. Just don't be surprised if the person you're leaving the note for responds with an even more passive-aggressive note in return
When this car got a ticket for being parked there for too long, the owner wrote a note replying to the ticket explaining that his door is frozen shut and he couldn’t open the car to move it.
We do give him credit for at least trying to avoid a ticket.
It's astonishing how many people park like this. All you have to do is check that you're not taking up more space than necessary and that another car has space to park, it's really not that hard!
A basic but often forgotten rule of parking: be a little more considerate when parking your car in a public area and not like this guy who took up way more space than he needed.
We’ve got to say, this parking note is a cute one. We might have to make some of these for ourselves to put on people’s cars.
Somebody must have done a very lousy parking job to get this note put on their car.
Even when you do your best to park by the rules, chances are high that you’ll still occasionally find a note like this on your windshield.
Parking isn't everyone's forte, and that's ok! Especially nowadays, when everyone's car is bigger than the next, parking perfectly in one space can get tricky. At least this guy left a nice enough note, sure it gets to the point, but at least they meant well.
A lot of people always say that they wish that there was a like and dislike button in real life. Well, hold your horses, there is now.
This person printed off a picture of the Facebook Dislike icon and is apparently using them where they are deserved to rate people’s parking. This is very well-used.
How awful is this? It’s even worse than not leaving any kind of note. Do people live in such intense fear that their insurance will skyrocket? Or are people driving without insurance?
Whatever it is, there is no excuse to act like this! This is making me believe that the world is filled with many insolent chumps!
Just My Number
If you’re too nervous to walk up to that cutie you just saw park their car and try to talk to them, you can always hedge your bets by leaving your number on a note on their windshield. They might be so relieved it's not a parking ticket or that they might just call you!
Plus, it sure beats the risk of getting shot down in person. The worst thing that can happen here is they just don't call you.
Public Trans for the Win
First of all, we totally believe that public transportation will solve a lot of world problems. And secondly, if more people rode the bus, there would be fewer horrible parkers out there.
The author of this note is proposing a good question here. Should bad parkers be forced to take the bus?
Mock shift Parking Spot
It would be beneficial to keep some chalk in the car so that in case you see somebody trying to pull off a stunt like this, you’ll be ready.
This driver is inconveniencing at least two people and even more if they keep their car there for a while. Maybe this message will teach this driver a lesson.
If you're the type of person who wakes up with a stuffed nose every morning just to sniffle throughout the day like a banshee, you already know how terrible allergies can be.
Even if you aren't typically affected by that sort of thing, you may still be finding yourself reaching for a few extra tissues just by looking at this hand-drawn note left on the dusty window of this car.
A Noisy Issue
Everybody has lived near somebody with a noisy vehicle at some point. There is nothing more frustrating than getting woken up by it in the middle of the night or when it goes off, and you’re trying to put your children to sleep.
What’s even more annoying is that the person doesn’t do anything to fix their car!
Crown Vic Car Club
Today, about three decades since the Crown Vic first hit the road to become the official police car in the United States, but since 2020, the California Highway Patrol retired the last two Crown Vics in its fleet.
So now, it's practically gone extinct, and seeing one of these is considered a rarity. So if you happen to be a part of the Crown Vic car club, then you'll know just how special it is to spot one.
Here’s How It’s Done
This frustrated neighbor took it upon himself to explain to his parking neighbor how to properly park his car so as not to screw him over and the guy to the left of his spot.
He explains how it’s done in a very non-judgmental manner.
If you didn’t get it, this is a reference to the comedy movie "Office Space." The scene from the movie depicted in this note has become a viral meme.
A lot of people would pick up on the reference, but it would be pretty awkward if the person who parked their car didn’t understand it!
We’re All Human
Some people simply just want to relay the message to a fellow driver that it would be nice for them to be more considerate.
The person who wrote this note wanted to notify the driver that they should be more considerate of others on the road because, after all, they aren’t bloody sardines.
The Golden Ticket
This person is the winner of the coveted golden ticket! They should be so proud of themselves, says the very sarcastic and passive-aggressive person who left them this note.
We are just surprised that it took over a month for somebody to leave a note for this person!
Another genius parking note! This person thought that practicing coloring in the lines would help this person park better.
Although we are sure that they really meant this as a passive-aggressive nod and more like “you’re a sucky parker,” if we got this on our windshield, we would totally take it home and color it.
Do Not Break the Glass
So you're sitting over there, all alone in your car, waiting till your significant other comes back from the store. You notice everyone passing by takes pity on you, and they can't help but wonder, "why is he all alone in the car with the windows closed? Can he breathe, is he overheating?"
It's times like these when you decide to write a note just to let everyone know you're safe and sound and there's no need to break the glass!
Look and Linger
Do you see that massive note left on the car over there? Sure you do. It's probably there for a reason, which is why the owners left it there.
Perhaps too many people were leaving their sticky fingerprints on the windows, or maybe the car alarm was super sensitive and would blare anytime someone would come too close. Either way, it's best you keep your fingers to yourself.
Here's Some Cash...
We're not sure if this guy siphoning gas out of your car is a sneaky thief or a good guy for leaving some cash along with his note. Fortunately, we can calculate how much it costs, and for five gallons of gas, it will set you back at least $50!
Just judging by that measurement, this guy definitely stole gas from your car, albeit creatively, he is by no means a good citizen.
How-To-Guide on Parking
Wow. It’s no wonder that the owner of this home was so frustrated after coming home to find that he was unable to park in his driveway because somebody parked in front of it.
They were so aggravated by the situation that they wrote out parking instructions for the driver and even sketched a little map.
It makes sense that strongly-worded notes circulate in this day and age, where almost every aspect of our lives makes us feel like we're pitted against the rest of humanity. If we're not reading something negative in the comments on Youtube, then we're reading nasty exchanges on Twitter.
But why leave a nasty note when you could leave a note of encouragement? It certainly gets your point across, and nobody's feelings get hurt. Everybody wins!
