A man lived in a house for 15 years with his wife and never had any problems with parking. Each house on the street had garages, and the unwritten rule was that if you needed to park on the road, you only parked in front of your own home. But when 6 people moved into the house next door, they disregarded the rules and annoyed the man. So when they asked for help, he slammed the door in their face.
He’d Been There A While
The man said, ‘I’ve lived in my home since it was constructed 15 years ago.’
Everyone Was Even
On his street were 12 houses, 6 on each side. Each home had 3 to 4 bedrooms and a garage big enough for 2 cars. His home was the 3rd house from the corner of a main road.
The Unwritten Rule
The man said there was a particular, unwritten rule in his neighborhood. If you had to park your car on the street, you did it in front of your house, and nobody else’s.
They Were Polite And Neighbourly
Of course, there were some exceptions to this rule; if someone had a visitor or worker coming for a short period, you were allowed to park elsewhere. It just couldn’t be for long or made a habit of!
One day, the man was taking the trash out when he spotted a stranger’s car parked in front of his house. He looked around and noticed multiple strange vehicles parked in front of all his surrounding neighbor’s houses. He assumed they would move soon and tried not to think about it.
It Was His Neighbors
He found out the cars belonged to his new neighbors who were moving into the corner building on the street. There was no public parking as it was so close to the main road, so the cars had parked in front of their neighbor’s houses.
They Couldn’t Use Their Own Garage
The man said, ‘Apparently, the new people have the garage packed, so they park 2 cars in the driveway and 4 on the street.’
3 Days Later
Three days passed, and the cars still hadn’t been moved. The man was frustrated; how long did these people need? It definitely wasn’t a great introduction to the neighborhood. He hatched a plan to take his revenge.
He Was Being Petty
The man kept an old, ugly 1985 F-150 Corvette in his driveway with his wife’s car. When his neighbor’s car moved from the front of his house, possibly temporarily going to the store, the man parked his truck in the spot. Later that day, his doorbell rang.
He Slammed The Door In His Face
Later on, the man’s doorbell rang. When he answered the door, his new neighbor asked him to move the truck so they could park in front of his house. He had seen the available space in the man’s driveway. The man said he could do that but didn’t want to. The neighbor explained that they had 6 cars and not enough space, to which the man replied that it sounded like ‘they bought a property that’s too small for their needs’ and slammed the door in his face. Later, the man worried that he had taken it too far and asked the internet for their thoughts.
The Internet Responded
One person said, ‘Whether you like it or not, it’s still a public street, and you have no “right” of any kind over it.
Others Chimed In
Another commented, ‘Street parking is public parking. Who gets there first gets the spot.’
