Man Refuses to Give up Parking Spot for Ridiculous Woman Who Claimed She Was Saving It for A Friend

A man recently refused to give up the last parking space on a busy day to a woman who claimed she was waiting for a family friend to arrive. Here’s what the man had to say.

The Man Lives in A Small Town

“There’s a very crowded part of town that we call ‘the village,'” the man said. “It’s less than 1 square mile of bars and restaurants. Needless to say, on the weekend, it gets busy.”

It’s one of the few spots in town where parking is free. But it’s definitely not easy.

The guy scoped out his usual parking spot, but the lot was full. He didn’t want to go searching through town for a space, so he drove around the block a few times, waiting for someone to leave.

“As I came around, I saw a car pulling out of a spot in the lot to my left. I put on my turn signal and waited for traffic to clear before I turned in.”

Suddenly, a Woman Appeared

He was about a quarter of the way into the parking space when a woman came out of nowhere. She was waving her hand frantically, shouting that she was holding that spot for a family friend driving in from out of town.

The guy thought, no, that’s not how things work around here, lady.

She insisted the spot was reserved, and her friends were only two minutes away. The guy would have to pull out and find somewhere else to park.

But as far as this guy was concerned, that wasn’t going to happen.

“I told her she can’t hold a spot, it’s free parking, and it’s the busiest night of the week,” the man said.

This was his parking spot. First come, first served; that’s how it goes.

But not according to this woman.

She said, “Look, there’s another spot down there you can move to.” To which the guy replied, “Then go and hold that one. I’m parking here.”

Then she called him an idiot, and the abuse continued after she got out of the way of his car and walked away.

The Wasn’t Sure if He Was Wrong

The guy asked Reddit users for their opinions on public parking rules. And he also asked them the big question: “Was I wrong for refusing to look for another parking spot because someone had already held it?”

Reddit Responded

“Not a jerk” posted one person. “It’s first come, first served.”

“Can’t hold spots. It’s just that simple. You have as much right to the spot as anyone else, and you were there before the other party, which makes it yours. Pedestrians trying to hold parking spots are the real idiots.”
