Insufferable Narcissists and local parking

While I know that no one owns the street parking in front of their house, there are common courtesies neighbors can, and should, show one another. We have a lot of blended families due to this dire economy, which can mean that there can be more cars per household than was usual even a few years ago. I take great care not to park in front of either of my neighbors homes, (as well as tell our guests not to) because I know one family has 3 cars and small children and the other family has kids who play on their basketball court. We do have a neighbor who doesn't drive or have guests, and doesn't mind that people park in front of her house. I find it annoying and outright disrespectful that when I get home at the end of the day, exhausted and laden with items I have to take into the house, I have to find that my arrogant neighbor, to whom I show respect, shows little for me in return and has once again parked in front of our home. Worse, he has parked in such a way as to make it impossible to park in front of my own house without infringing in the space of my other neighbor. Or, to put out our cans for garbage and recycle pickup. Mind you, this guy had an empty parking space in his driveway, and another one in the street where he chose to put his garbage, to say nothing of the fact that it was his own' nanny' car in front of his house, but hey, he's so special that he believes he should haughtily point out that no one owns the street and that I shouldn't be upset then tell ME to park elsewhere. No, I don't own the street. I do possess something though, that he for all his education and money doesn't, a modicum of respect for others.
