An Entitled Single Mom Kept Demanding that Her Neighbors Move Their Cars, but She Was About to Learn that Raw Nerve Will only Get You so Far

A woman recently asked for advice about a parking dispute with her neighbors. She thought her parking lot was dangerous, but was she right to tell her neighbors that they had to move their cars? Here’s what she had to say:

She Had Been Unlucky In Love

“I am a single mother with two kids. I was divorced about 4 months ago and went from living in a 3500 sq/ft house to a two-bedroom apartment. It’s been such a hard adjustment that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.”

The Living Situation Was Far From Ideal

The woman lived in an apartment block with four other tenants. However, there were only three parking spots directly in front of the building. As such, it was always a fight to get one. This was a source of concern for the woman.

“For whatever reason, they only put three parking spots right in front of the door. This means that it’s next to impossible for me to get my kids out of the car and walk across the parking lot without being put in real danger if one of those spots isn’t open.”

She Tried To Speak To Management

If the apartment complex had assigned spots, there wouldn’t be an issue. She asked the apartment manager, but was surprised when he shot the idea down. Apparently, the assigned spots were just too much work to manage. The woman didn’t understand. Couldn’t he see that she was a struggling single mom?

There Was Another Solution

Although the building manager had dashed her hopes, he did make a useful suggestion. He told her to talk to her neighbors. Perhaps they could work something out?

She Confronted Her Neighbors

The woman decided to talk things out with her neighbors. Surely they would see her situation and recognize that she needed a spot. However, when she asked, she was blown off. She wondered if having her kids with her was weakening her negotiating position, so she decided to try again without them.

The woman admitted that, while she was technically a single mom, the kids spent most of the time with their father. She took advantage of one of these periods to confront her neighbors again, but things didn’t go the way she expected.

The Neighbors Didn’t See The Issue

Two of her neighbors didn’t even answer when she tried to contact them. At first, she thought that the third would be more friendly. At least he agreed to talk to her. But she soon realized that he didn’t understand her predicament. The way he saw it, she got one of the spots often enough. What was the problem?

She explained that she needed a parking spot because she was a single mom. The neighbor wasn’t convinced. There were other spots pretty close. Why couldn’t she use those? When she told him that walking through the parking lot put her kids at risk, he lost his cool. He told her she needed to improve her life skills.

Was She Entitled?

She couldn’t understand what had gone wrong. She’d been clear as to why she needed the spots: she was a single mother. But none of her neighbors wanted to see her point of view. She started to wonder if she was being unreasonable.

People Weren’t Impressed

One person had this to say: “I will give it to her that the change in life sitch is overwhelming, and it’s overwhelming her. She’s looking for every edge to make her feel safe (emotionally safe). Unfortunately for her, other people live in the world, and she will need to find that safety elsewhere.” 

Another Person Was Also Unsympathetic

“Definitely laziness. If I can walk for ten to fifteen minutes from my door to the mailbox with a 3 and a 6-year-old, she can walk 20 feet to her door with much older kids.”

“Lol I thought they were like 2 or so. I have two small kids and it can be a hassle indeed, but like 20 feet? Lol”
