His Neighbors Blocked Him In, so He Had Them Towed, but They Threatened to Sue, and His Partner Said He Should’ve Booked an Uber

A man recently went online to ask if he’d been wrong to call the cops on the neighbors who’d blocked his car in one too many times. Here’s what happened.

He lived upstairs

“I live on the second floor of an apartment complex,” the man began. “You have to walk up two flights of stairs to get to it, so getting anything upstairs or downstairs is a hassle.”

“My downstairs neighbors have three cars, two of which they don’t use; they’re just parked in their spots. The one that they mainly use is usually in the first parking space, closest to my apartment.”

The man explained that because his neighbors’ cars take up so much space, he usually has to park across the street, or if parking’s really bad, at a gym several minutes’ walk away.

He couldn’t afford private parking

He said that although his apartment block did have garages available, he couldn’t afford the extra $600 per month on top of the $1000 rent he already paid.

To make things worse, whenever he did manage to grab the parking spot right by his apartment, his multi-car neighbors would park behind him, blocking him in. It would then take multiple requests for them to move it.

One day, the man was called into work to deal with an emergency. He rushed out to find his car blocked in yet again. He began knocking on his neighbors’ door, but no one was home.

Not knowing what else to do, the man called the police, who ordered a tow truck, which duly arrived and took the offending car away.

When the man got home from work, his neighbors were waiting for him. They began yelling and cussing him out. They told him they were going to sue him.

Even the man’s girlfriend told him that he’d been in the wrong and should have simply called a cab instead of causing trouble.

He asked the internet

The man admitted that he didn’t own the parking spot, but he still felt he had a right to park without being blocked in. After all, they didn’t own the spots either; they were for all residents. He asked the online community for their thoughts on his situation.

Everyone backed the man. “If parking isn’t assigned, then they should be decent and park the cars they don’t use further away,” said one. “Blocking your car in is just a nasty move altogether. You were absolutely right to call the tow company on them.”

“Communal parking spaces are not long-term storage for extra ‘junkers,’ agreed another. “Also, towing companies don’t just tow random cars because someone asked them to; I’m assuming the cops determined your neighbors were parked illegally… because they were.”
