'Park Like an A**hole'? Website Is Watching You

Andy said the idea for the project was born after countless nights looking for street parking when he was living in an apartment in Rochester, N.Y. Often, he said, one driver wouldn't pull his car up to where the curb met a driveway, leaving a six-foot space "that kind of screwed up the whole street from one person."

"It was like, 'C'mon, we don't have a place to park,'" he said. "'Please just move up.'"

Though Andy now lives outside city limits with his very own driveway, he still sympathizes with those less parking-fortunate than him.

He even sympathizes, though maybe a little less so, with the less than happy recipients of his website's notices.

"I had a whole paragraph about how someone's mother was sick and they ran into the hospital," he said.

Other rants he's had e-mailed to him, included, "You made my mom cry," and a sarcastic, "I bet your mom is proud of you."

Andy said his mom actually is proud of him, and added that the site was meant to be light-hearted.

"I feel bad, but it's just a joke," he said. "It's not really supposed to be hurtful."

Andy said he's now waiting to accomplish one of two goals he's set for himself since creating the website.

He's either waiting to "come full circle" and have a notice left on his own windshield, he said, "or get on Letterman."
