He Stole A Parking Spot From A Man Who Needed To Charge His Electric Car, But His Vehicle Got There First, And He Wanted The Free Electricity

A man was annoyed when a stranger stood in his parking space and demanded he give it up. So, he refused, despite not needing to charge his car nearly as much as the rude stranger.

The man said, ‘Today I went to a shopping mall in my electric car.’

None of the Electric Car Chargers Were Free

When he reached the mall, he drove around the parking lot, looking for a space with a charger for his car, but none were available. So, he parked in an ordinary space and went inside to start his shopping. But, he soon turned back around, having forgotten something in his car, and that’s when he spied an opportunity.

The man returned to his vehicle and noticed someone was getting ready to leave one of the ten electric car charging spots. Eager for some free electricity, the man waited for the person to load their shopping and pull out. After all, he was in his car, so he might as well move spaces.

The spot did not only mean he could charge his car, it also was a lot wider than his original space. But just as he was about to re-park, a stranger stood in the middle of the spot. At first, the man thought he was just crossing the road, so he gestured for him to move.

The stranger begrudgingly moved out of the parking space, and the man pulled in, grabbing his charging cable. When he got out of his car, the stranger was waiting for him and told him that he had to move. He claimed that the man couldn’t stay there because he had got to the spot first.

The man was confused; he didn’t see the stranger’s car. He told him he wouldn’t move, but the stranger explained that he was reserving the space for a friend who would be there any second. Their car only had 10% battery, and they lived really far away. But you can’t reserve spots with your body?

It Was Rude

He was frustrated. The stranger was being incredibly rude. The man tried to tell him that he was there first, with his car, so he was going to plug in, but the stranger started cussing him out, calling him awful names.

He Didn’t Need it

The man said, ‘I didn’t need to charge. It was just nice to have it there for free.’

The stranger could have asked nicely for the space, and the man would have let him use it. After all, he didn’t really need to charge his car. But the stranger kept yelling, so the man walked away, ignoring the horrible things the guy was shouting at him.

Was He in the Wrong?

If it were true that the man’s friend had only 10% charge left, they would struggle to drive home. The man thought about it and started feeling a little bad. But he hadn’t deserved the stranger’s hostility. He decided to ask the internet if he had been in the wrong.

The Internet Chimed in

One person said, ‘Not acceptable at all to reserve a parking spot with your body when your car hasn’t arrived yet.’

Others Gave Their Opinions

Another person commented, ‘The guy should be thankful you noticed him and that you didn’t accidentally hit him.’

A final reader shared their view, ‘He shouldn’t have spoken to you that way but you were a jerk for being selfish.’
