She might not be doing it on purpose.
I have a horrible habit with water bottles. We keep like 10 water bottles in our fridge that we rinse out and reuse. I'll grab one, drink about half of it, get up to do something and accidentally leave it behind. Later I'll take another one out of the fridge and do the same thing. Before I know it half full water bottles are all over the house. This morning I collected 8 of them and I think they were all mine. Pretty much exactly what that little girl on the movie Signs did. I know it annoys the hell out of people but I'm not doing it intentionally.
Just make sure your cars aren't blocking the sidewalk. That really pisses off runners and walkers trying to get by.

No you don't want to do that. You want to leave her a little room so she'll pull in. If you don't leave her any room, she'll just know that you're F'ing with her and know it was done on purpose. If you park 10-15 ft from the garage you can always say in was an accident or you can just say what she says when you b!tch at her about it.
hey.. while we are venting about cars and driveways and such.. here's my story from last night.
My car was sitting in my driveway. I always lock the doors because I have a keyless remote thingy that I use as I walk away from the car. I can't guarentee that I hit the button this time, but I do everytime I walk away from my car as it has become habit, so I don't think I would have forgotten.. All of that is really beside the point, though.
I walk out to my car this morning to find that it has been broken into. Upon inspection of the situation it appears that my school backpack is the only thing that has been taken from my car. The interesting thing here is the the thief was nice enough to dump out my backpack all over my backseat and only take the backpack. So this thief steals my 10-yr-old, beat up backpack with a broken zipper (worth almost nothing, but frusterating that I have to buy a new backpack now.) What was in the backpack that they left behind, you wonder? well, fall semester is just about to start. In that bag was one $250 book, one $220 book, one $160 book, my $200 finacial calculator. They got away with the backpack and about $20 worth of pens that were in a seperate pocket.
note: They also left behind my golf clubs, baseball glove, 2 dvd's, and my sunglasses.
I am relieved that they left behind the thousand dollars worth of contents from the bag, but can i be happy about this? I am still pissed.. but relieved that I encountered strangely thoughtful thieves..
Last night I got totally wasted. It was midnight, maybe 1am, and I realized I forgot that I already have homework (stupid finance profs). I got into my car OK, but I couldn't find my notes from class and ended up dumping my backpack in the backseat because I couldn't see in the dark. I was cross-eyed from Captain Morgan's anyway, but still. That dumb backpack is 10 years old, beat up, and worthless. I finally found my notes, realized I didn't have anything due until Wednesday, and got so ticked off I tossed that worthless backpack across the street. I may have forgotten to lock my car.
