He Tried Parking in Someone Else’s Spot, but When She Threatened to Call the Cops, He Completely Changed His Tune 

A woman recently asked for some advice about how she handled an argument over parking at her apartment building. Here’s what happened.

They Were Lucky to Have Parking

A woman lived in an apartment building that had a few parking spots; a rarity in that neighborhood.

She Even Owned One

The woman owned one of the spots because she also owned her apartment. It was an opportunity she made the most of.

There Weren’t Enough Spaces

The parking lot was a small one, and there weren’t enough spaces for everyone in the building to have one, so they were guarded pretty carefully.

There Were Rules

The woman said, “The rules are simple: if you OWN (must be the owner, doesn’t work if you’re renting), you have the RIGHT to have ONE parking spot IF there are any without an owner.”

Her Neighbor Had the Next Spot

The woman owned parking spot 31, and her neighbor, who she knew, owned number 30 (and had done so for a lot longer than the woman had owned 31).

She Knew Her Routine

The woman even knew her neighbor’s routine—when she left for work and when she came home again. She said, “And naturally, I know her car.”

The woman got home one day and parked her car in spot 31 as usual. She parked it a little way over because she had to get her bags and kid’s car seat out of the car. Since the owner of 30 was at work, it wouldn’t matter for a short time, after which she’d park straight again.

A Man Wanted Spot 30

As all this was happening, a car pulled up behind the woman. It wasn’t a car she recognized, but it looked as though he wanted to park in spot 30—her neighbor’s spot.

She Told Him to Wait

The woman said, “I wave at him that I won’t be leaving anytime soon (the parking has only one narrow alley where cars drive, so having a car stopping to wait essentially blocks it).”

He Got Mad at Her

Rather than waiting or even leaving, the man got out of his car and started telling the woman off for taking up the extra space. He told her he had a right to park there.

She Questioned Him

Feeling rather aggrieved, the woman started to question the man. She asked him if he knew her neighbor and had permission to park there because the spots weren’t free of charge, and only the people who paid for them could park in them.

She Pointed Out The Sign

To drive her argument home, the woman pointed to the big sign that read, “Residents’ Parking,” after which she threatened to call the police because he was about to be parked illegally.

He Changed His Tune

The man instantly changed tack and started begging the woman for help. She said, “I refused and kept threatening with the police.”

Was She Wrong?

Should the woman have let the man park in a space that wasn’t his, or did she do the right thing when she told him to leave and threatened to call the cops?

The Internet Responded

One person said, “The guy was bullying and manipulative. Good for you for standing firm.”

Another said, “You were a good neighbor by alerting the guy that he’s not allowed to park there.”
