She Demanded Priority Parking Over an Injured Woman Because She Was Old, and She Only Stopped Yelling When the Cops Got Involved

A woman recently asked for some advice about an unpleasant incident in a parking lot. Here’s her story.

They lived in a retirement area

A woman and her family lived in an area that wasn’t a retirement community but often felt like it, as most of the residents were well past retirement age.

She thought them rude

The woman had had a number of run-ins with older people and thought they were rude and obnoxious, especially when they didn’t get their own way.

The woman had what could be called an invisible disability. She said, “I have an injured back from a car accident.”

She needed to park close by

One day, she had to go to the store with one of her children. Because of her back injury and the fact that her kid tended to run unless she carried him, she needed to park near the store’s entrance.

She found a spot

The woman said, “After circling the parking lot for a minute, we saw a few people walking to their cars, one of which happened to be right at the front of the parking lot.” She waited for them to drive away.

The woman took her time, getting carefully into the spot. After parking, she glanced in the rearview mirror and noticed a car right behind hers.

She went to talk to the driver

The woman assumed that the driver thought she was leaving, not arriving, so she got out and went over to let them know.

The driver started yelling

Before she could say anything, the old lady at the wheel started yelling at her that the spot was hers and that the woman had to move immediately.

The woman said, “If she’d asked me if I’d mind giving her the spot, I would have, without a doubt.” But because the old lady was being so rude, the woman refused to back down—or back out.

It was first come, first served

The woman explained that the spot wasn’t anybody’s and that the parking lot operated on a first-come, first-served basis.

She said she was disabled

The old lady insisted that she needed the parking spot because she was old and disabled, and the woman replied that the spot wasn’t a disabled one. In fact, there were plenty of designated spots for disabled drivers available.

She started cursing

The old lady started cursing at the woman in front of her child because she wasn’t getting her own way.

She threatened to call the cops

The woman had had enough. She said, “I told her that if she kept harassing me, I would call the cops.”

She had to start the call

The woman even had to take out her phone and start making the call before the old lady got the message and moved on to park elsewhere.

Was she wrong?

Was the woman wrong not to move for the old lady, or did she have as much right to park in the spot as anyone else?

The internet responded

One person said, “Speaking as an older person, I get no priority over parking spaces. You are right. First come, first served.”

Another said, “She was completely in the wrong to act out like that over a parking spot and had no right to declare her need greater than your own.”
