That's an excellent idea. Not destructive or harmful, but certainly gets the message across.
She's already 'told' him several times. I'm sure the message got across each time. Are you familiar with the term "Bricking?" It's used with mules.

Not at all.

And I mean that it gets the message across that continuing to block the door will result in escalating problems for the cyclist, without doing anything for which they could be prosecuted.

This morning the bike was parked across the street, still not in one of the free bicycle clamps, but it's better than in front of my door.

While I think I know what's meant.
What's the point to do so with a mule?
Ain't they - being interspecies breeds - sterile?

It's for attracting their attention, not for control.
And actually, I don't know anyone who's really tried it (thank God) so we can't know for sure if it works.

It should be used with caution, it has been known to result in uninteded actions on the part of the horse mule.

Unless of course you have issues with texting while driving, and could benefit from reduced thumb functionality.

Well, that could cause an accident if he doesn't notice it. I was more planning along the lines of turning them the wrong way around or swapping them . But, again, this morning our door was bicycle free.
