Neighbors Try to Resolve Parking Wars with Really Passive-Agressive Notes

Which is why when we read of this recent parking fracas in Bernal Heights, we weren't really surprised. Entertained, yes, but not at all shocked that two neighbors were sending each other scathing missives about parking spots.
Here's a closeup of a written point-counterpoint between the dueling neighbors, which was posted to a telephone along Folsom Street near Ripley:

To better understand what this parking tension was about, neighborhood blogger Todd Lappin asked nearby residents to enlighten him.
Per the neighbor Lappin talked to:
This section of Folsom is not street cleaned, and people can park here for days legally, sometimes weeks illegally, without having to move their cars. There are a handful of work trucks, second cars for folks, that live on this block.It seems this particular neighborhood conflict is shaping up to be even more ominous than those creepy Pentagrams someone mysterious painted on Bernal Hill.
I think this "parking war" is a misunderstanding and a waste of time. We need signage, street sweeping and no dumping to make this problem go away. Not sarcastic notes.
