Seattle police say a parking vigilante left a note for a woman suggesting she “put a bullet in your face” after she parked outside some unofficial parking lines in North Seattle.
Someone painted the lines earlier this year along a one-block stretch of Whitman Avenue N. near 41st Street.
Police say a woman left her car parked outside those unofficial lines last week for several days while she was sick. When she finally returned, she found this note:
“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.”
Police say the woman believes the note was written by a man who has complained in the past about parking on the black. She also said it wasn’t the first note that had been left on her car.
Seattle police did manage to turn this frown upside down. On its website, it says it has job openings for parking enforcement officers. “Among the many qualifications for the job, you must be able to remain 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,” said SPD.
