He Found Parking Outside His Own Block Too Difficult, so He Parked Elsewhere, but It Led to Him Being Repeatedly Blocked In and Threatened by a Stranger

A man recently asked if he’d been wrong to park outside a neighboring apartment block after an angry confrontation with a complete stranger. Here’s his story.

“Okay, so let me start off by saying that I’m an almost completely new driver,” the young man began. “I also recently moved into a new apartment.”

Parking was tight

The young man explained that the street is very narrow. There is street parking, but there are no spaces marked, and the street is very narrow, making both driving and parking difficult.

He had a bump

Within days of moving into his apartment, the young man had hit his new neighbor’s car. He said that she was “chill” about it, and it had soon been sorted out.

However, the incident had left him paranoid about parking outside his own block, so he decided to park outside the neighboring block a few meters down, which had more ample parking.

When the man returned to his car the next day, he found that someone had completely blocked him in. Luckily, he could get by without the car that day, so he went about his business. The next morning, the offending car had gone. He drove away and thought nothing more of it.

But the next time the man parked in that spot, he found himself blocked in again by the same car.

Once again, the car blocking him eventually disappeared, and once again, the man drove away. But when he went to park there a third time, a woman came out of the block and confronted him.

The woman began yelling that the spot he was parking in belonged to her neighbor, who had “remade” the spot and had been using it for over 10 years.

Bemused, the man asked where it said that the spot belonged to the mystery neighbor, as it was just an unmarked spot on the street.

However, the woman continued to yell that if he didn’t move, she’d call the police. He called her bluff and told her to go ahead. She faltered but remained insistent that he move his car.

He asked the internet

The man revealed that he’d begun parking somewhere else to avoid confrontation, but he wanted to know if he’d been wrong to break the “unwritten rule” of parking outside a block he didn’t live in. He asked the internet for their thoughts.

The man’s story divided opinion. Some backed him: “If it’s a public street, it’s not his parking space. Next time he blocks you, call the police,” said one.

But others seemed bemused by his admitted lack of driving skills. “Who gave you a driving license if you can’t park properly?” thundered another. “If you’re so bad at it, practice or get someone to teach you properly. Why do you make other people suffer because of your inability to drive?”
