Resident’s Revenge: Tow Truck Called on Every Illegally Parked Car in Apartment Complex

What do you do if you find your parking space in your apartment’s parking lot taken? Take another spot? Park outside on the street? Or call a towing company? Calling a towing company would be considered next-level petty, but it sometimes needs to be done.

OP called a tow company on 13 illegally parked vehicles, and the reason behind it is very justified. He posted about it online and here is what transpired.

Not Through the Rain

OP, his wife, and their eight-month-old son had had a long day running errands. When they returned home, he found no parking spots in the private parking lot of their apartment complex.

All the apartment complex residents have parking passes which must be displayed at all times on the vehicle’s windshield. All guests are supposed to park on the street or in a parking lot by the store next to the complex.

OP says he would have parked in the parking lot next to the store, but it was pouring. The lot is 200 yards from their apartment, and he will need help to pick up his son and stuff and walk through the rain.

Let the Tow Guys Get the Job Done

He was not about to get soaked, not especially with an eight-month-old baby. So he decided to call his apartment’s building tow truck and tell them that there were 13 cars with no parking passes inside. He gave the company the make, model, and license plates of all the cars parked illegally.

The towing guys arrived and started sending the fleet of cars outside.

White Privilege?

Then, one lady spotted what was happening and confronted OP.  It turns out the lady had parked in a handicapped space without a disability sticker. No disability sticker, no apartment parking pass.

She was so annoyed at OP and called him an jerk for using his white privilege to put everyone else down.

Is he a jerk?

The Masses Weigh In

The thread labeled OP, not the ***hole, and justified his decision to call a tow truck.

One commenter said, “NTA – Those passes and parking lots aren’t free. You pay for that parking space, one way or another, as do all your neighbors. By parking in those spaces without passes, they are stealing space and time from you. Towing rules are posted for exactly this reason.”

Towing Is the Solution …

One commenter shared how calling tow trucks on people saved him so much trouble. They said, “I owned a condo with one covered space that I purchased with the condo (each condo had one). I lived there for ten years. For the first year, I used to leave polite notes reminding people the spot was mine. Usually, different cars each time, but a few repeat offenders. My spot was occupied by other cars at least once a week that first year. Once I started calling the tow truck, it magically stopped!! Then I had three vehicles towed for the next nine years in that period.”
