A woman paid monthly for a designated parking spot, but the parking lot had recently fallen into disarray. Unexpected circumstances had led fellow parkers to park wherever they wanted, and this included the woman’s personal spot, resulting in a dramatic altercation.
A Monthly Investment
The woman paid $135 each month to secure her parking spot, a hefty expense. The spot was located within her apartment’s parking lot, ensuring she always had convenient parking access.
However, the entrance gate to the lot had recently broken, and this led to unexpected consequences. Rain passed through the garage gate, flooding the lot and causing chaos in the parking area.
Due to the flooding, many people were unable to access the specific spots that they paid for. As a result, drivers were parking wherever they could, and this included the woman’s spot, which remained unaffected.
Temporary Parking Etiquette
Despite the inconvenience, the woman didn’t mind others temporarily parking in her spot. However, she would leave polite notes on the drivers’ cars, requesting the return of her spot as soon as possible.
However, some offenders were taking liberties. “There have been two Teslas that constantly park in my spot,” the woman explained. “As usual, I left a note politely asking them to move. A couple of days later they came back again and I again left a note. However, after the third time, I’ve had enough because at this point they are doing this on purpose.”
The Warning Note
Frustrated, the woman resorted to a stronger measure. She left a warning note on one of the Teslas, threatening to tow the vehicle if it reoccupied her spot.
An Angry Response
The situation escalated when one of the Tesla owners texted the woman’s phone number, which was left on her note. “They claimed I was threatening them,” she recounted. “The person who texted me said that she’s the friend of the other Tesla driver, which leads me to believe that they are doing this on purpose, trading off my parking spot just to annoy me.”
End of Patience
The woman replied to the driver angrily. “I reminded them that I had kindly asked them to move several times, but they continued to say that I was being rude and threatening them, causing them anxiety by asking them to move away from my spot.”
The woman was at the end of her tether. She told the driver that she had given up and they could take her spot if they needed it so much. She decided that if this continued, she would simply have them towed.
Sentry Mode Standoff
However, one day the woman went to check on her car, worried that the drivers might have vandalized it. She discovered a note, stating that the Tesla drivers had activated “sentry mode” on their vehicles, which acted as a security camera. The owners cautioned her not to touch their cars or action would be taken.
Assessment of the Situation
The woman was unsure how to proceed. She believed that she was well within her right to tow the Teslas, given that she paid $135 every month for her space. However, she worried that she was taking things too far, given the supposed intimidation and anxiety that the drivers were experiencing.
An Online Perspective
The woman posted her conundrum on social media, asking readers whether they were on her side, or on the Tesla drivers’ side. Unsurprisingly, she was defended. “Have them towed already!” suggested one reader. “You pay for the spot, so that’s your right. They know they’re in the wrong, so just follow through.”
Just Tow Them
Everyone agreed that the woman was beating around the bush. “Stop with the notes, just go directly to towing,” another reader advised. “If you’ve warned them and they continue to park in your space, they clearly don’t care if anyone is inconvenienced, so it’s your turn to inconvenience them.”
A Sensible Approach
However, one commenter suggested a more administrative approach. “Why aren’t you taking this issue to building management?” they asked. You can likely handle this amicably through a formal complaint.”
