When People Park in My Parking Spot

In the town where I live there is no overnight parking. It's a bit of a pain when you have guests, or need to park your own car, but I guess it's nice since there are no snow emergencies where you have to scramble to find a place for your car, and no one is going to take your mirror off when they try to squeeze by. Luckily, my apartment building has parking on the side of the building, but you rent it from the condo association for $95 a month. You may think this is a lot if you're not from Boston, but trust me that's not so bad. Some spots will be $200 or more per month.
Anyway, I have this spot that I pay for. So it drives me absolutely insane when I arrive home and some strange car is in my spot. First of all, the spot is in a driveway that is clearly not a street. Secondly, there is a sign that says "Private parking. Violators will be towed." Thirdly, the spots are numbered so it is even more obvious that the spots are assigned to people. And lastly, I'm not even the spot closest to the street, so people had to have seriously been looking. It is SO frustrating to come home from the gym in the morning or to come home after a late meeting and have no where to park. Sometimes it is a delivery person (in which case, they should just park on the street because there is no restriction about parking on the street for a few minutes). Other times, it is just a random car. If you are ever with me when this happens, you will see my true wrath. Seriously, this might be one of the things I hate the most.
On a scale of 1-10, how mean would it be to let the air out of one of their tires? Or does anyone know where I could get a boot for cheap?
