As the woman drove to the mall to run some errands, she knew that finding parking on a Saturday would be a challenge. The mall was usually packed on the weekend, so she was driving around for a good 5+ minutes trying to find parking. She finally spotted an open spot and started turning into it, but all of a sudden, someone started banging on her tailgate and yelling, “HEY HEY.”

Confused and Frustrated

She was confused and frustrated as to why someone was banging on her car, so she rolled down her window to see the person who was causing the commotion. It was the man who was partially standing in the spot on his phone, and he started going off on her, saying how he was saving the spot for his friend and just walked away for a couple of seconds to wave him down.

The woman was already halfway into the spot when he stopped her, and she couldn’t believe that he thought he could just stand in a parking spot to save it and then leave it unattended for a couple of seconds in a busy mall parking lot. She told him, “Look, sorry man, but you can’t stand in a parking spot to save it or someone and leave it unattended for a couple of seconds in a busy mall parking lot.”

Move!

The man started cussing her out and telling her to “GET THE HELL OUT OF MY SPOT” over and over again, but she stood her ground and refused to move. Another random guy came beside him and started yelling at her to move as well, who she assumed was the person he was holding the spot for.

A Huge Scene

It was a huge scene, and the two guys proceeded to run in front of her car and start banging on the hood of it still yelling, “HEY HEY GET THE HELL OUT MOVE.” Thankfully, a man and his son came over and started telling the guys to get the hell out of there before they call the cops.

Socially Unacceptable

The woman thanked the man and his son and went into the mall. Later on in the day, she told her mom what happened, and her mom started going off on her, saying that it was a jerk move and that she didn’t have to make a huge scene and could have just found another spot. The woman disagreed, saying that it wasn’t socially acceptable to stand in a parking spot to hold it.

Reflection

She reflected on the situation, saying, “I don’t think it’s right to hold a parking spot like that, especially in a busy mall parking lot. It’s not fair to other drivers who are also looking for a spot and are willing to park legally. Plus, if they were in a rush, they should have come earlier or found another spot.”

Could Have Been Handled Differently

The woman realized that while she could have handled the situation differently, she stood up for what she believed was right. She also learned that not everyone will agree with her actions, but it’s important to stay true to herself and her values.

The Internet Responded

This commenter wrote, ” I can’t tell you how many times in a busy parking lot I’ve spotted a spot in the next row over, gone around, and BAM someone else took it. Oh well. that’s how it works. Saving a spot isn’t cool or right. Not fair to everyone else.

A second person had this opinion and said this, “I wouldn’t have made a huge scene. I would have sat there and taken a picture of every single angle of my car and then a picture of them and their license plate number and left saying “If anything happens to my car, I’m calling the cops and reporting your plate for harassing me before I left.”
