She Demanded Permanent Reservation Of A Parking Spot Because The Nearby Parking Lot Was ‘Too Dangerous’ For Her Children – Were Her Neighbors Justified To Refuse? 

A single mother of two kids, one 8-year-old and one 10-year-old, recently downsized from a large house to a two-bedroom apartment after her divorce. This move, however, came with parking issues. She made demands for a specific parking spot which led to disagreements with her neighbors. Here is what she had to say: 

A Tough Transition

The woman highlighted the difficulties of this transition, particularly the limited parking options near her apartment building.

The apartment building only had 3 parking spots right in front of the door, which she claimed made it difficult for her to safely get her kids out of the car and walk them across the parking lot. 

It’s About Safety, Not Distance

The woman explained that the parking lot wasn’t too far away, but it wasn’t about distance. Her concern was regarding the dangers associated with walking her children across a parking lot every single day.

Asking Management

In an attempt to resolve her problem, the woman decided to ask the management of her building if she could reserve 1 of the parking spaces, ensuring she didn’t have to use the alternative parking lot. 

Not Worth it

Unfortunately, the management was unhelpful. “They said that assigned spots are more hassle than they are worth and said to talk directly to the neighbors”.

Request to Neighbors

She approached her neighbors to ask if she could “reserve” the spot closest to the door for her, explaining her situation. Unfortunately, this proved fruitless – “Basically all of them said no, in varying manners of rudeness, by the way”, explained the woman. 

Second Attempt

She decided to try again, but this attempt also resulted in negative responses. “2 of my neighbors didn’t even respond”, the woman lamented. “The third said, “You get one of the spots in front often enough, why is this even an issue?” I said I needed it all the time as a single mother. He said, “You are a real piece of work for trying to play that card”. 

Her Justification

After the same neighbor laughed at her stating that ‘the other spots are maybe 20 feet further away”, the woman explained that “it’s not the distance, it’s that I have to have my kids walk across the parking lot”. In response, the man rudely stated “it’s a life skill” and shut the door in her face.

Her Perspective

The woman became incredibly frustrated, believing that her request was driven by concerns about the safety of her children, not convenience. However, her neighbors made it clear that they were not interested in accommodating this, making her wonder whether her request was in fact unreasonable. 

Seeking Judgment

The woman headed online with her story, hoping to receive comments that would validate her request. However, the response could not have been further from what she wished for. “She literally has a comment saying she gets zero breaks as a single parent yet she only has custody 40% of the time…bruh”, one person pointed out. 

Playing the Single Mother Card

Despite the woman’s outrage at her neighbor claiming she was ‘playing the single mother card’, this opinion was common. “You are not a single mother if you get to ship your kids off to your ex every weekend”, someone wrote. “As someone who was raised by an ACTUAL single mother, she has no right to be playing that card. Disgusting. Poor her and her 2-bedroom apartment.”

She’s the Bully

Many people were quick to point out the ridiculous claim that the parking lot was too dangerous for her children. “As someone who’s lived in apartment complexes just like this…the parking lot is just as safe as the apartments. Given that she was fine trying to bully her neighbors, sounds like a pretty safe apartment complex.”

Where’s the Danger?

Another reader chimed in with a similar perspective: ”I read the post and… yeah. How does walking across a car park present “real danger”? Does she live in an active war zone?”

In a humorous response, another person replied, “THE FLOOR IS LAVA!!”

In a neighborhood made up entirely of women, there was only one husband to go around. The female neighbors called on him for household chores and flirted with him in front of his wife.
