A user shared an anecdote that tells an incident where someone who owns a driveway found a stranger parking in it. Instead of politely requesting the stranger to move, the owner took petty payback on the offender. The story is a warning about the risks of entitlement and acting impulsively.
Someone on the Block Was Having a Huge Party.
Which he noticed upon returning from work and finding his driveway occupied by someone else’s car.
“Keep in mind my driveway is a single car width lined with a retaining wall on both sides and a garage at the end. Essentially impossible for a tow truck to come pull them out without property damage.”
He Took His Cue to Exact His Pound of Flesh.
Owing to the limited street parking on the block, he parked his car directly in front of the entitled parker’s car, blocking it completely.
“Now a few hours go by and their entitled parker is now knocking at my door demanding I move my car so she can leave.”
He Had Been Drinking.
To add insult to injury of, the rogue parker, they were very demanding in their request, so the OP didn’t feel too obliged to move his vehicle.
“I told them I had been drinking and would not move my car.”
They Then Called the Police.
The disgruntled rogue parker impatiently waited for the cops to arrive.
“When the police knocked on my door, I was sure to grab a beer from the fridge before I answered to talk to the officer.”
He Was in No Condition to Drive.
He told the officers that he had been unwinding with some beers and therefore was too inebriated to drive.
“At this point, their hands were tied because they couldn’t tow her car out, I’m in no shape to drive, and I’m legally parked in my driveway.”
He Told Them He Was Going to Be Drinking for the Next Three Days.
It was a long weekend, which the OP used to his advantage.
“I ended up telling the Entitled Parker that since it is a long weekend, I would be on a weekend-long bender, and they could come to move my car after I go to work on Tuesday.”
He Then Shared His Story Online.
Feeling rather proud of his petty revenge scheme, the man took to a forum to share his tale of comeuppance.
And most people sided with him.
They Would Have Taken the Revenge Scheme Further.
One user applauded this tactic and even said they would have taken it a step further.
“The absolute entitled audacity to park in someone else’s driveway without permission. I would have taken Uber to work on Tuesday just as an extra measure.”
The Neck of the Entitled Parker.
Users couldn’t believe the sheer nerve that the parker called the cops when she was in the wrong.
“Then the XXL audacity of calling the bloody coppers on the owner of the said driveway.”
What Kind of Person Does This?
Other users questioned the neighbor’s choice of friends.
“I would literally never invite someone over ever again if they thought it was okay to park in a stranger’s driveway. That’s not the kind of person I want in my life.”
She Played the Victim.
One user pointed out how embarrassing it must have been to make that phone call to the police.
“Hello, police? I trespassed on someone’s private property by parking my vehicle up their driveway and now they’ve parked behind me and won’t let me out! I’m the victim here! I demand you come and punish them!”
Revenge Is a Brew Best Served Cold.
No one took sympathy with the entitled parker, and everyone applauded the man’s petty handiwork.
