A Boston-area man who shoveled several feet of snow to clear a parking space for his car was irate when he found another driver’s car in the spot, so he reacted in perfect fashion: He put the snow back.
In a now-deleted Craigslist post (the shoveler told Boston.com that he later decided he wanted to stay anonymous for fear of retribution), he outlined the incredibly frustrating — albeit hilarious from an outside perspective — ordeal:
Here’s the full text, in case you can’t read the screenshot:
This guy took my spot… so I put the snow back
So I had a marker, and I spent a long time clearing out this spot. I even made a path from my spot to the sidewalk so I wouldn’t have to walk in the streets. According to the Mayor, if you shovel out a spot it is yours for 48 hours after the snow stops. After that it is fair game. This guy didn’t wait 24 hours so I put all the snow back… I was nice enough to leave the passenger door accessible in case they needed to get in for an emergency… like they left an inhaler inside or something. But I think he is a total dick and got what he deserved. It was a blue and yellow Monte Carlo with New York plates.
I hope the owner reads this.
