Wheelchair User vs. Driver: The Battle for Parking Space 🅿️🤯

Diply Social Team
Diply | Diply

Picture this: you move into a house with friends, and you're the only one who drives, so you pay extra for the parking space included in the rent. Fast forward, one friend moves out, and the new housemate is wheelchair-bound and needs the parking space. But he refuses to pay extra for it, even though you'll now have to pay for parking elsewhere. 😱 Sounds like a recipe for conflict, right? Well, buckle up, because that's exactly what happened in this story! 🍿

Wheelchair-Bound Housemate vs. Parking Space 💥

Our protagonist moved into a house with friends and paid extra for the parking space. When one friend moved out, a wheelchair-bound housemate moved in, needing the parking space for his assisted car. The new housemate refuses to pay extra for the space, even though our protagonist will now have to pay for parking elsewhere. 😤 Our protagonist offers to split the difference, but no one accepts. The landlord won't get involved, and our protagonist is now being called petty and inconsiderate for not just paying the extra cost. 🤬 So, who's right in this situation? Let's see what the internet has to say about this parking space predicament! 🧐
