With the holidays all around us, LAist has noticed that some people aren't fully embracing the "treat your fellow man respectfully and with love" concept. And so, we decided to take advantage of the stress and the chaos and the ill-will around town by seeing just how many annoyed dashboard notes we could elicit by parking in two spaces at once, too close to the driver's side doors, at awkward angles, double-parking and a myriad of other "no-no's."

Honestly, it was sort of fun.

At Tower Records (Sunset Boulevard), double-parked behind a Jeep Cherokee: "What are you, an idiot!? Obvs."

At Virgin Megastore (Sunset Boulevard), parked in two spaces because said car was so precious, we couldn't risk being near any car at all: "Take your head out of your ass and realize there are other people who need to park -- asshole! If I had time to wait for you I would then I'd kick your ass for being so greedy!!!!

At Whole Foods (Ventura Boulevard), parked too close to other person's driver's side door: Learn to Park!

On Santa Monica Boulevard, at a meter: "You took my spot!"

Bedford drive, in Beverly Hills neighborhood: "Don't ever park in front of my driveway again or I will call the police. The police will be notified. The police will tow your car. Don't ever do this again!!

In the Best Buy parking lot (Sawtelle, West LA): "If you're in Best Buy, you're going to be sorry!"
