Snowbound Boston Residents' Fight For Parking Spots Gets Aggressive

Deep breaths, Boston.

The situation in Boston is bad. So bad the mayor had to ask people to stop jumping out of windows and onto snow mounds. The snow has reached historic levels, and Bostonians have had just about enough of it.

After digging their cars out of multiple feet of snow, New Englanders are claiming what they believe is rightfully theirs with passive aggressive notes that really bring the nickname "Massholes" to life.

Shoveling is hard – take it from Beth and Nate.

"I got tendonitis shoveling out this spot. I can't shovel out more if you take my spot. Please be considerate. Beth, Nate."

After digging out their cars, Bostonians are saving the spots with whatever they can.
