‘Please don't tow my parents car': College tenants parents arrive to celebrate their graduation, landlord demands $200 for 1 hour parking

‘Please don't tow my parents car': College tenants parents arrive to celebrate their graduation, landlord demands $200 for 1 hour parking

I can still remember that one landlord who was so stingy that it was almost remarkable he owned any land at all. The roof had been leaking for months, and one night it began cascading down the wall like a small waterfall. I called my perpetually absent landlord up but he never answered. Voicemail… great. He never did fix that roof and I ended up moving, but I can understand what having a cheap landlord is like. A couple of college students were living together throughout their semester, and the…

'He had it coming': Resident gets car towed from neighbor's driveway after parking it there for days, resulting in $3000 fines

What does one should do when a strange car all of a sudden gets parked in one's private parking? Should they look for the car's owner and get them to move it? Should they hold tight and see if the owner will simply move their car on their own? Or should they get the car towed right then and there and let the owner deal with the rest? The Redditor who wrote this petty revenge story tried a few of the ways listed above when their neighbor decided to park their car in the Redditor's driveway. OP (…

'[My] car is gone': Tenant pays in small change for fraudulent towing charge when their car is incorrectly towed from their snowy apartment complex parking lot

There will be plenty of times in your life when things seem completely unfair. Plenty of these times will involve incorrectly awarded parking infringements… Should this tenant have just moved their vehicle like everyone else so that the snow plow could do a clean sweep of the lot? Sure. But, by the time they had gotten out there and removed the remaining snow from around their vehicle that should have been the end of it. Just because a rule exists doesn't mean it needs to be enforced to the let…

‘She looked absolutely apoplectic’: Karen receives fines amounting to $1,000 for taking up two disabled parking spaces with her car

‘She looked absolutely apoplectic’: Karen driver receives fines amounting to $1,000 for taking up two disabled parking spaces with her car

Karens have a knack for knowing just when to use their magical powers to irritate other people, but sometimes, this leads to their demise. One Karen was ladidadia-ing about her day, when she arrived at the parking lot of a store she needed to go to. She looked around the entire lot, and thought to herself, ‘Where could I take up the most room, whilst being the most inconsiderate at the same time?’. Luckily for this Karen, she found the perfect spot… or rather, two spots. Yeah, you guessed it… t…

'You need to move your car': Couple parks on neighbor's driveway, retort ‘we're not parking here' when asked to move

'The apple doesn't fall from the tree' does not only apply to family situations but also to friends. People say that if you look at a person's friends, you'll know who they are, but that isn't always the case. See, even when you are lucky enough to land a house with good neighbors, their guests aren't always so polite. In this case, u/cycloscott dealt with the usual, run-of-the-mill Karen, after finding his entire driveway blocked thanks to her and her husband parking their car on it. OP approa…

'[My] boyfriend was wrongfully towed from our complex, I got revenge':Tenant gets one over on towing company in rare victory

Parking is always a drama in hotly-contested high-density residential areas where there isn't nearly as much space as people are wanting to park their vehicles, leading to petty squabbles and growing resentment—all over a parking space that they might not even have an actual claim to. Usually, things come to a boil when park and riders, looking to take advantage of parking spaces close to the city, wise up to the free parking and begin parking to walk or bus the remaining distance, taking up re…

'She left with the most... smug grin on her face': Customer flips out on mechanic who warns that her steering wheel is about to break

This car had some major issues — for one, the steering wheel was about to break off. There's a stereotype about mechanics. Some people think mechanics are only interested in trying to get money out of them. They believe that instead of a quick fix that costs a few dollars, that their mechanic is actually trying to get them to spend thousands of dollars to perform unnecessary work . To be fair, some mechanics do operate this way, and it's hard to figure out who's right – you, the person who driv…
