Her Roommates Made Her Pay for A Parking Spot She Didn’t Even Use, So When They Started Taking Advantage of Her, She Put Her Foot Down

A woman recently became annoyed when her flatmates started taking advantage of her, making her pay for a parking spot she’d never use. So when one of them asked to use it for a week when the house was empty, she said no, and all hell broke loose.

It Was A House Share

The woman said, ‘I live in a house-share with three other girls. ‘

She Paid Extra For Something She Didn’t Use

Before the woman had moved into the apartment, someone else was set to live there. They were going to pay extra rent so that they could take advantage of the dedicated parking space. But they pulled out of the agreement at the last minute, and the woman was invited to move in, but she had to stick to the agreement despite not having a car.

It Was A Waste Of Money

It was a total waste of money as the woman didn’t have a car. Therefore, the space went empty most of the time. She calculated that it was vacant 90% of the time and only used when her flatmates had people over.

The woman had planned to rent out the space and make some money, but she needed more time to do so. Her roommates took advantage of this and let their guests and family members use the space without ever asking the woman if it was okay. It was frustrating as she felt like they were taking advantage.

It Was An Amazing Location

Parking in the woman’s area was extremely expensive as they lived in a very central location, so her roommate’s guests were saving a lot of money using her space when they came in for appointments, etc. But they never said thank you!

They Were Taking Advantage

The woman said, ‘One of my roommates, who allows her family to park in the space the most, is asking if her friend can park his car for a week.’

It Was A No

The woman was annoyed that her roommate was even asking. She always used the space without permission, in fact, she was the biggest culprit. But, since no one would be in the house for a whole week, her roommate assumed it would be a yes… So, she was surprised when the woman refused.

She Felt Guilty

The woman felt like she had to say no as a way of punishing her roommate for always taking advantage. But, it wasn’t really fair as the space would be empty the whole week anyway.

She was tired of being bulldozed over and was actually planning on moving out after the mistreatment from her roommates anyway. Should she say yes to keep the peace until then? She asked the internet for advice.

The Internet Had Thoughts

One person said, ‘Just stop paying for it so you won’t be unnecessarily spending money, and your roommate’s friends can still use the spot.’

Others Had Opinions

Someone else commented, ‘Suggest to your housemates that either you all split the cost of the parking space or anytime their visitors want to use it, there will be a charge.’

There Were Lots Of Comments

Another said, ‘Have daily, half-day, and weekly rates.’

That Wasn’t All

Others said, ‘It literally doesn’t affect your life if someone is parked there, and what exactly is the difference between allowing them to park for a day vs the week?’
