An Inconsiderate Driver Wouldn’t Stop Parking Over the Designated Line, so This Man Parked Closer and Closer to Him to Teach Him a Lesson

A community college student would drive his car onto campus every day, and with 20,000 students attending the college, parking was never easy. One particular driver would always park inconsiderately, so the man sought petty revenge. However, unbeknownst to him at the time, this would eventually prove to question his conscience. Here’s what happened: 

A Busy Campus

The student’s campus had approximately 20,000 students attending, yet only 600 parking spaces to accommodate them. Naturally, parking woes were a common complaint amongst students.

To make matters worse, the parking spaces were incredibly small. “Each space is just 7 feet wide and 14 feet long…AKA: extra extra small”, the man described.

Despite the 600 small spaces, the student always seemed to face the same challenge each morning. “There is this one kid who somehow gets front-row parking every day and parks his truck a good few inches over the line”, he explained. “Taking a few inches off an already minuscule parking space makes it next to impossible to use it.”

This parking infringement didn’t go unnoticed. The situation infuriated the man as well as many other students. “I’m not debating if he’s an inconsiderate idiot… we all know he is”, he accused.

The man would often confront the offender’s parking audacity head-on. “I’m usually the only one brave enough to squeeze into the now narrowed spot next to him”, he explained. “I usually try and get my car so that I’m exactly within the lines, and it ends up being really close to his car.”

However, the man sometimes took this act of vengeance a step further. He would push the boundaries of proximity, parking his car as close to the offending truck as possible, hoping that the offender would eventually get the message.

A Sudden Realization

However, the man recently had a sudden realization. “I sat back after pulling into the spot today and realized that I may just be stooping to his level and being as much of a jerk as him”, he pondered. 

An Act Of Defiance

The man assessed his moral dilemma. In terms of his motive, it was simple. He was taking a firm stance and making it obvious to the offending driver that his actions weren’t appreciated.

However, it was clear that the offender was unwilling to change his ways, so in reality, all his actions were achieving was potentially giving rise to escalation and further pettiness.

Seeking second opinions on his actions, the man posted his story on an internet forum, opening up the comments section to the public. “The only jerk here is the person not parking between the lines”, one commenter chimed in. “In my opinion, if someone can’t park in a standard parking spot, they shouldn’t be driving at all.”

The man was surprised to find everyone praising him for his actions. “You’re within the lines”, another commenter pointed out. “You keep sliding your heroic self in and out of that parking space. You’re doing the Lord’s work”.

Further Pettiness

To the man’s further shock, some readers even suggested he up the ante. “If you ever get the chance to team up with someone else and have some time to kill, arrange to block him in on both sides, then find somewhere to sit and watch when he comes back”, one reader suggested. “Don’t forget to bring popcorn!”

The Devil’s Advocate

However, in typical internet fashion, there was one commenter who wanted to play the devil’s advocate. “Do what you need to do to fit in your space, but you’re being a jerk, as you seem to be considering this fun”, they accused.
