A "delicate" situation with a couple of viewers


Recommended Posts

For the third year running have had this, ah, "amorous" couple use my display as a kind of drive-in theater. As with every year, I know they can't see much of the show as the windows are fogged up. Fortunately, there haven't been any other vehicles stop by during their interludes, and they park halfway down the block - would hate for some kids to see that.

So, what to do? Jack a mic into the transmitter and give 'em a talking to? Pipe in some Barry White? Shut it down until they leave (not that they would notice)? Call the Church Police?

If they're doing something illegal, then call the cops. If not, then there's not much you can do about it.

Don your coat and hat, grab a flashlight and simply walk by with the flashlight going at random. Make it look like your simply out for a walk, maybe take your dog if you have one. I think if you make a few passes and interrupt them a few times they will stop parking in your area. I don't think you will even need to say anything. You may however have to do it 2 or three times for it to sink in for them.

Ahh love... nothing more beautiful than the sounds of christmas in the background and well... ok back to the world we live in. I think that if they aren't disturbing anyone, and no one is truly being affected or anyone can really see what they are "doing" then not much of a big deal... That being said, if you do have some traffic and many cars going by then I would politely take a stroll and do the flashlight. They will get the idea after a few rounds!

I fail to see the problem. Are they blocking someone's driveway?

I agree, if you can't see what is going on, how do you know what is going on. I have a car that the windows fog up merely by sitting in it. Some cars just do that. If you have actually witnessed the act, call the cops, if they are blocking traffic or driveways, then do something about it. Otherwise, try walking by with a flashlight and such.

Was trying not be overly crass when describing the situation, but okay - the car is rocking - it doesn't take too much imagination to figure out that they aren't making martinis in there; and it certainly isn't in time to the music.

Calling the "cops" is not an option - this is the county whose sheriff is now serving hard time for dealing drugs (Illinois - where our elected officials make our license plates), and haven't had a local PD for 15 years. So, this is hardly something the State Police would muster out for.

Guess we'll do the flashlight bit on the next go round. Might just cam it for posterity.

Okay - I've been following this thread and have held my tounge but now I have to speak out. I need to know your show hours because I'm going to take my wife by to see if your display has the same effect on here. If you see a blue Saturn Vue with fogged up windows, stay away.

Thanks for the warning.

Well, they haven't returned since the original post, but there's still the weekend. It'll be my luck that they'll be there the same time the TV station shows up. Thats a kind of viral video I don't want circulating.

Actually was thinking about doing a "Hot Chocolate" sequence. And I don't mean Polar Express, either! lol Maybe "Santa Claus is Watching You" with the spotlight pointed right at their car - triggered every time 'He's everywhere, he's everywhere!" comes up. Remember those "films" we had back in high-school health class? The jumping frames and chattering film gate to the strains of "Never My Love" while displaying all the graphic nastiness of "social diseases"? That may be the ticket....

Did snag a 1-bajillion candle power spotlight Monday, so we'll see what develops. Son wants to sneak around behind the car and give it a few hard shakes. Think he's been playing too much Call of Duty.
