Many years ago, a coworker bought "his dream car" - a 25 year old (1984, IIRC) Corvette.

One day, he complained that someone had parked next to him in the parking lot.

So the next day, I was driving in, and I see that he has parked in a very far corner of the (suburban corporate office park) parking lot. I parked next to him. (It hadn't been me the day before.)

After lunch, he came back and ranted for the rest of the afternoon about how someone chose to park next to him AGAIN.

Next day, I chose to drive my wife's car instead of my usual, so it wouldn't be the same car again. He was parked across two parking spots at the edge of the parking lot. So I parked next to him again, as if the lines were based on where he was parked, rather than where they really were.

Yep, more ranting. Our other coworkers had figured out it was me, they all kept silent because they thought it was hilarious, too.

The next day, he was parked taking *FOUR* parking spots. (No barriers between aisles, the center of his car was under the lines for both aisles and individual parking spots.) I was driving yet a different vehicle, so I parked next to him again. This time in a normal parking spot.

And filed a complaint in our internal ticketing system about the badly parked car.

About 10 minutes later, my boss comes over, quietly gets me away, "did you file the ticket about <person>'s parking?"

Yeah.

"Uh…. Can you retract it? He's a contractor, he'll get fired for it."

"Oh, yeah, I was just hoping for a note on his windshield!"

I stopped messing with him after that. Our boss did have a talk with him about his parking. If he doesn't want people parking next to it in a public parking lot, he needs to not drive it to work.

Sadly for him, it got totaled about a month later while it was parked by a drunk driver. (Not at the office.)
So mean.

Karma is coming for you.

Appears to own a Model 3 ... which is basically the new Toyota Camry when it comes to how common it is on the road.
Now that's just hilarious.

That guy isn't serious. He's trying to make money from X/Tik Tok, etc.

Twitter has been destroyed by Elmo and now everyone is just trying to put up fake crazy videos/posts to drive engagment.
