In a quiet apartment complex with ample unreserved parking spaces, a peculiar preference had emerged between two neighbors over a seemingly ordinary parking spot. Little did the two neighbors know, that their favorite spot would soon spark a full-fledged parking war.
The Beloved Spot
A resident with a fondness for a particular parking space, had no qualms admitting it was his favorite. “It’s not better than any other spot, it’s just my favorite”, he explained.
The New Neighbor
Recently, a new neighbor had moved in, a mysterious presence whose identity remained shrouded in anonymity. This enigmatic neighbor, it seemed, shared a passion for the same cherished parking spot as the man.
The Battle Begins
Without the exchange of words, the parking war quietly commenced. “We’ve been low-key fighting over the space since he(?) moved in”, the man explained. “No notes or anything – just competing for the spot.”
A Fortuitous Vacation
The situation took an interesting turn when he went on a two-week vacation, unintentionally leaving his car in the coveted parking spot. While it wasn’t a deliberate move, he couldn’t deny a sense of satisfaction at having thwarted the neighbor’s access to the prized space.
The Neighbor’s Seize
Just a day after returning from vacation, the man discovered their neighbor’s car had firmly claimed the favorite spot! It seemed like the neighbor had wasted no time in seizing the opportunity.
The Moped Solution
The man decided to take a creative approach to making his next move. “I bought a used moped for cheap”, the man explained. “One weekend when he briefly vacated the spot, I parked the moped in it. I park my car next to the moped, forcing him to park two spots away from my car.”
Outrage And A Note
The neighbor, clearly irate at this audacious move, did not hold back. An outraged note arrived: “He claimed that he needed to park his (imported car with custom narrow rims and a vanity plate) in a spot where he can keep an eye on it from his window in case someone messes with it, and the only spot that works for this purpose is the favorite spot”, the man said.
An Entitled Neighbor
The note provided insight into the neighbor’s perspective. They clearly felt entitled to the man’s favorite spot, a belief that had been brewing from the beginning. The man couldn’t help but laugh at the situation, as there was no reason for it to be his favorite spot – it just was.
Showing No Remorse
Despite his actions clearly riling up the neighbor, the man showed no remorse or plan to change his attitude. “I know that I’m not entitled to the spot – random people park there sometimes and I don’t think twice about it – but I really cannot stop myself from deliberately antagonizing someone who thinks this way.”
The man seemed rather proud of his actions, heading online to boast about it to the internet, expecting validation. However, he was surprised to be met with universally negative responses. One reader jumped straight to criticize his final comment: “I really cannot stop myself from deliberately antagonizing someone… yup, you’re in the wrong here”.
“You’re being a jerk”, accused another reader. “You say this other guy thinks he’s entitled to the spot and you don’t think you are and therefore your actions are justified, but you’re the one escalating things to make sure you have access to the spot at all times.”
Accusations of the man being antagonistic were also ubiquitous throughout the comments section. “You’re just needlessly creating an enemy in your apartment complex”, pointed out one commenter. “You’re also being inconsiderate to everyone in the complex by taking up an extra parking spot that you use only for spite.”
Whilst everyone agreed the man was in the wrong, the neighbor was not free from accusations either. “Both of you are acting like children”, frankly stated another commenter.
