A parking dispute between a man and his neighbor escalated when the man’s niece, who also had a handicap, parked in a handicap spot in front of the neighbor’s house, causing inconvenience to the neighbor who had turned the spot into a handicap spot for his own use.
A Difficult Parking Situation
A man who lives on a street with no driveways or garages found himself in the middle of a parking dispute with a new neighbor who had two cars. One of which was parked wherever the teenage son wanted, and the other was parked in a handicap spot in front of their house, causing inconvenience to other neighbors who needed the spot for their guests or second cars.
He Tried to Talk About It
The man had tried to talk to the neighbor about the parking situation, but he was dismissed, and the problem persisted. However, when the man’s niece, who also had a handicap, parked in the handicap spot, the neighbor became furious and demanded that the man tell his niece to stop parking in front of their house.
He Tried to Understand
When the man was trying to explain that his niece genuinely needed the space the neighbor became increasingly more angry by the second. He tried to reason with him that the neighbor’s son was able bodied and had two cars so perhaps he could park in the lot down the road? This caused the neighbor to start cursing at the man so he was written off as inconsiderate.
She WAS Allowed
The man’s niece had checked with the city and found out that as long as she had a handicap sticker or placard, she was allowed to park in the handicap spot, which was not registered to any particular person. Despite this, the neighbor was still angry about the situation and tried to have the car towed, but to no avail.
It’s Been Years
The man’s niece had been coming over for a few years now to babysit for the man and his family whilst he went off to work. He always offered to move her car down to the parking lot for her so she didn’t have to walk. The man was finding it difficult to understand his neighbor’s reason’s when his son is taking two spaces.
She Thought it Was Hilarious
The man’s niece found the whole thing hilarious and did not think that they should have to make extra efforts to park elsewhere if the neighbor was not willing to ask his son to park his vehicles in the parking lot down the road. The man agreed with his niece and found it hard to empathize with the neighbor, given his inconsiderate behavior.
A Moral Dilemma
The situation had become a moral dilemma for the man, as he was torn between doing what was right and what was convenient. He knew that his niece had every right to park in the handicap spot, but he also did not want to escalate the situation with his neighbor. He hoped to find a solution that would be fair to both parties and would not cause any further tension.
Straight to Social Media
The man decided to ask the internet for advice on the situation and turned to a popular Reddit forum. Whilst the responses were mainly positive and in favor of the man’s opinion, there are always a few controversial opinions too. Here’s what the internet had to say:
The Internet Responded
This commenter wrote, “I am going to assume that the handicapped neighbor has always gotten away with this awful behavior because of his disability. Well, it’s about time he and his entitled son are put in their place. Since, he doesn’t care if his son parks in front of someone else’s house, then why should OP even care if his niece has parked in that jerks “handicap spot”??
More Internet Comments
Another person posted, “I can’t stand a ‘don’t treat me different because of my disability except for when it benefits me’, dude sounds like a giant jerk, he should have found a more practical place to live, with a driveway of his own or assigned spaces or something if it really was a huge issue for him.”
A Final Comment
This last person commented and had this to say, “Treat others as you want to be treated. So I think they are being courteous to him by implementing his rules and logic into their parking decisions. Downright saintly.”
