She was a Recently Divorced Mother-of-Two, Adjusting to Life in an Apartment Block, But When She Asked to Reserve a Parking Spot, Her Neighbors Refused

A woman recently went online to ask if it was unfair that her neighbors wouldn’t let her have the parking spot nearest the front door of her complex. Here’s her story.

It was all new to her

“I’m a single mother with two kids,” the woman began. “I was divorced about four months ago and went from living in a 3,500-square-foot house to a two-bedroom apartment.”

She’d struggled to cope

“It’s been such a hard adjustment, and I wouldn’t wish it on my worst enemy — the whole thing, not just the apartment.

There weren’t enough spaces

The woman explained that her block has four apartments but only three parking spots near the front door.

She feared for her children

If the three spots were taken, the woman claimed that it was impossible for her to shepherd her two children (aged eight and ten) from the car to the door without being put in “real danger.”

The woman had tried to talk to the complex’s management, but they had told her that assigned spots were “more hassle than they’re worth.” They told her instead to talk it over with her neighbors.

The woman said that, with her kids, she’d gone to ask her neighbors if they could leave a free space but that all three had refused with varying degrees of rudeness.

When her kids were staying with their father, she tried again, hoping that a one-on-one approach might work better. But she was wrong.

One neighbor angrily accused her

Two of her neighbors hadn’t even opened the door to her, and the third had accused her of “playing the single-mother card.” When she’d protested, he told her that she got a good parking space often enough, the fourth space was only a few feet away, and that walking your kids across a car park is a “life skill.”

Then he slammed the door in her face.

She asked the internet

The woman asked the online community for their thoughts on whether she was wrong to have asked her childless neighbors to give up a space so that she could always park by the front door.

The internet responded

If the woman was hoping the internet would support her, she was wrong. The vitriol was real. “Unless the parking lot is in a prison, I’m sure the danger is your feet being a bit more tired and achey from having to take a few extra steps,” laughed one. “Next to impossible to get her kids out of the car and across the parking lot? Over-dramatic much?”

“It’s a parking lot, not an eight-lane highway or a racetrack,” scoffed another. “Why do so many parents think the world should bend and cater to their needs just because they have kids?”
