This stupid street

Sure this has all been done to death but I'm so fucking sick of this stupid street. We're in the process of moving so all these issues are temporary, but hope you don't mind my rant...

1. Most houses in the (narrow) road are terraced with very limited on street parking immediately outside your door (next to a wee pavement). This is largely fine and I don't expect to be able to park outside my own home every day - sometimes we have to park a few minutes away... But the opposite neighbours are end of terrace and have a driveway for 3 cars. The driveway has a narrow entrance so if someone needs to get out but they're blocked in by mum - she has to get off her arse and move her car. Instead of doing this, they take up much needed space in the road - outside my goddamn house! Also it's usually a massive fucking 4x4 thing that blocks out a lot of the light from the lounge window.

2. The person who for some reason sees fit to keep their wheelie bin in the middle of the tiny pavement - forcing pedestrians and buggies into the road. I keep moving it away to the side but it keep reappearing angry

3. The people who sit in their cars outside my window, revving or idling their engine for no apparent reason. Or the ones who have bass boosted music blaring really loud and you can hear it in every room of the house.

4. The cars who tear up the road, beeping their horns wildly to alert someone in the terrace that their lift's arrived (taxi drivers included)

5. The neighbour who sounds like he's tunnelling through the wall every time he scrapes out the grate of his fire / aerates it / whatever the fuck he's doing...

Arrrghh! AIBU for letting this get to me? I think my frustration at the conveyancing hold-ups might be coming out in other ways!

Thank you. Now a works van has parked outside my window, some sort of noisy equipment has been set running, and the workmen are freely staring into my window as they unload! Will have to work on some distraction techniques... and breeeeeathe.
