This Is What Happens When You Steal Someone's Parking Spot After A Blizzard

No one screws with Boston residents and their parking.

Boston is having one hell of a winter — it's the snowiest month on record, the subway won't be running with full sevice for another 30 days, and things are getting tense.

Like in the case of one resident, who had the parking spot he dug out stolen by a neighbor. “So I put all the snow back,” he wrote in a Craigslist post.

The anonymous poster, a 26-year-old Uber driver, told Boston.com he saved his space with an old bookshelf on Feb. 8 and went to work.

When he got home Sunday night, a car with New York plates was in the spot.

"This was just not a cool move," he said. "I'm getting home at midnight and I had nowhere to park."

The city's mayor has said you can keep a spot you dug out for 48 hours if you spent 10 hours shoveling it, which the writer pointed out in the now-deleted post.

"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 inahler inside or something," he wrote. "But I think he is a total dick and got what he deserved."
