Recently a Reddit user recalls an encounter they had with another tenant in their residential building.
*This is a work of non-fiction sourced from social media discussion boards and verified experts/specialists.*
The author begins by explaining that when he got back one night around midnight, a person was parked in his parking spot in the building's six-floor garage. The author explains:
“I don't want to park in somebody else's spot and move my car the next day, because then I could end up being towed for being in the wrong spot. I go to the front desk who calls the person up—apparently, it was their first day or two moving in and they weren't aware there were assigned parking spots. As far as I'm aware, all spots are assigned, so that seemed bizarre. However, I do not believe anybody is assigned to the 6th floor as there are only contractor vehicles occasionally up there.”
This story is an example of how, when handled correctly, a simple problem such as a parking spot can become a teaching moment for both sides, as touched on by Parklio. We all know how important parking spots can get and how annoying it can be if someone takes an assigned spot, according to Wayleadr.
After talking to the other tenant over the phone, the author then asked them to move the vehicle. The author continues:
“Front desk hands me the phone, guy asks if he can just move it tomorrow. It takes 5 minutes or so to drive up the parking garage and another 5 to drive down, plus it's just kinda annoying... additionally, I wasn't sure if I was even technically allowed to park on the 6th floor. So I declined and asked him to come and move his car. He said he had work tomorrow and this was a pain and again asked me to let it be for the night.”
The author stood his ground, refusing to budge, as he concludes with:
“When he came to move his car I was waiting there. He flipped me off and said something along the lines of, "bad karma buddy". Should I have just parked upstairs and let him fix it the next morning?”
What do you think?
Was the author justified in demanding that the person who was parked in his spot move his car, since the spots are assigned?
Or should the author indeed have parked on the street and let the guy move his car the next day?
