There are many people who feel like they will be able to get away with anything they do. Sometimes, it is clear as day that they in the wrong. Despite this, they are simply not going to let anything get in their way. They are far too stubborn to admit that they are not being reasonable… We hope you are not one of them!
If you ask us, these people deserve to be put in place every now and then. We are glad that this happened in the story we are about to tell you. Right away, this man knew that it was going to be a long day at the job. It was hard enough to move construction material uphill, but there was another setback. This one came in the form of an entitled woman who refused to get her car out of the way.
A Different Project
Even though he could have called the police, this was going to take up too much time. The woman, on the other hand, continued to dismiss and patronize him. The mad genius had a great idea about how to deal with this! He was going to make her regret parking her car in that spot.
He was working as a foreman at a construction site of a new house. This was nothing new to him at all. However, this project was not like the others. For one thing, it was right on top of a hill.
Most Complied Quickly
You could only get up to the site by hiking up a footpath that was 250 feet long. It complicated the work that they did. Even though it was hard to bring the materials there, there was a silver lining in the end.
A Mom Waiting For Her Child
At the foot of the hill, there were two parking spots on the hill. They were reserved for the folks working at the construction site. In order to discourage anyone else from taking up the spots, they placed two “No Parking” signs there.
Still Wouldn’t Move
Sadly, it looks like the signs were not enough to keep other parkers away. There was an elementary school located only half a block away. It did not take very long for this foreman to learn that parents would often leave their cars there.
A Brilliant Idea
This did not faze him all that much, at least not until this day. He never said anything when he saw a parent use up one of those reserved parking spots. It was not a problem unless the truck had to park there or they were expecting a scheduled delivery.
Whenever it was convenient for them, he asked the parents to remove the cars. They normally did so right away. However, this parent felt entitled to the parking spot! On that day, the foreman received a call from the lumber delivery driver to let him know that the order was on the way.
Calling The Authorities
The foreman checked if there was a parking spot for the delivery truck. He noticed that an idling car was taking up one of them. There was a woman resting in the driver’s seat of the car in question.
Her Ineffectual Rage
He assumed that she was waiting for her child to finish his classes for the day. This was not an issue, but they had to use the spot. The foreman went up to the car and asked her to take her car out of there.
No Backing Down
She scoffed at the request and said, “I’ll just be a few minutes, and your truck isn’t here, take a chill pill dude.” How rude! The foreman could not believe it. Soon enough, the lumber truck pulled up.
She Was Livid
Because of this, the foreman assumed that she planned to remove her car now that the lumber truck was there. Despite this, she simply rolled up the window and ignored him instead. He waved at her to get her attention. When he did this, she opened the window once more and yelled, “WHAT?”
Per Company Policy
He decided to be firmer with the request this time. The truck had to park, after all. However, her reply only rendered him speechless. In a dismissive tone, she told the foreman, “Can’t you guys just unload around me? Jesus, it’s not that hard.”
Showing Her Anger
Even though he was astounded by her rudeness, he came up with an idea thanks to her remark. The foreman went up to the truck driver and told him to parallel park the truck to the woman’s car. He wanted the vehicles to be as close as possible!
A Burst Of Rage
The driver could see where the foreman was coming from. He smiled and began to do as instructed. It was time for this woman to learn her lesson! They placed the port-a-potty for the construction workers behind her car. On top of that, there was one more car parked beside the two parking spaces.
With the lumber truck blocking the side of her car, she was pretty much cornered beside the curb. She tried so hard to ignore them, so she failed to notice what was going on around her. We are so relieved to hear that she eventually got her comeuppance!
Failed Attempt To Escape
There was something else that the foreman had to do. He spoked to the parking enforcement officers and explained what was happening. Later on, he narrated the incident this way: “At this point in time I wasn’t trying to get her in trouble, I just wanted a record of why we were blocking part of the street so we don’t get in trouble with the city.”
Lying To The Police Officer
The officer told him that they would be there in half an hour. However, this was not quick enough for what was bound to happen. When the son of the woman got out of school, all hell broke loose. She wanted to hop out of the car to greet her kid but found that the door refused to open all the way.
At the time, the foreman thought that she was going to understand the gravity of her actions. It was probably a little too hopeful, but he hoped that she would try to make amends. However, she simply glared him accusingly as if it was all his fault.
He found have found her reaction funny if she did not do what she did after that. This woman was clearly furious with them. After she clambered out of the passenger’s seat, she awkwardly got out of the car and brought her son to the back seat of her car.
She then walked up to the truck driver and foreman. The pair had been trying to hide smug smiles. At last, it looked like the woman finally realized that they were not planning to back down easily, if at all.
Surveying The Scene
She looked around the scene furiously. There was a car in front of her vehicle, a huge truck to her left, a curb to her right, and a porta-potty behind her. She was livid and said, “I’m in a big hurry, you need to move your truck right now so I can go.”
However, she did not expect the response she heard from the truck driver. “Ma’am in order to unload the lumber on the truck we had to unstrap it, and per our company policy I’m not allowed to move the truck with any unsecured load on it,” he informed her as he bit down on a laugh.
Neither the foreman nor the truck driver assumed that she would cause such a huge scene about it. The woman was so enraged that she started cursing at them. She barked, “I have somewhere to be!”
She did not know that they called a traffic officer and only found out when the enforcer got there. The foreman kept his cool and even replied to her calmly even though she continued to tell at him like that.
His dry replies only fueled the fire some more. The foreman was smiling as he repeated her words right back at her, “Can’t you just pull out around it? It’s not that hard.” After yelling a stream of profanities, she returned to the car. She had to go in by clambering over the passenger’s seat once more.
The officer walked towards the truck driver and the foreman. The woman then put the car in reverse and hit the gas. The wheels spun around as she hit the port-a-potty right behind her. She knocked it over, but this was not the end of her tantrum just yet.
She charged forward carelessly as she tried to drive over the sidewalk! The foreman, the truck driver, and police officer could not believe it. She went up the curb and only confused the others even more.
What did she think she was doing? This woman was unable to escape from the parking jail. The car was now stuck down the curb. This was not the end of the misfortune just yet. What would happen next?
The police officer calmly walked over to the woman and asked her to get out of the car. As soon as she stepped out, the cop handcuffed her and asked her to stay on the curb. Backup was called, but the woman was not yet done showing her true colors.
The woman was aware that she landed in hot water and tried to make herself sound like the victim in this situation. She lied and told the police officer that the foreman had not asked her to move the car. In fact, she went as far as to say that he told her it was fine to stay there!
Not Having It
The officer did not buy it, however. In fact, she told this woman that she received the call from the foreman. Not only that, but she was aware of exactly what was going on. The woman refused to get out of the reserved parking slot, and this cop knew all about it.
It was clear that the woman had no way out of this situation. “While myself and the driver are giving a report to the second officer, my guys finish moving the remainder of the lumber and the driver finishes his statement and takes off to go back to the yard,” explained the foreman.
He went on, “By the end of the ordeal, she was arrested, charged with reckless driving, destruction of property, (the porta-potty) and Driving on a Suspended License.” In the end, her car got towed.
She was taken to jail as well! The grandma of her son had to pick up the little boy thanks to this. The foreman said, “I never expected her to actually heed my advice to “Just pull out around it.” But I think next time she’ll probably think twice about parking in a tow-away zone if she ever gets a license again.”
This parent definitely made a great point. It would be good if the school discouraged the parents from parking there when they fetch their kids. We hope that this is something that the school will start to do as well.
We have all been there. We have all put on a horror or thriller film and watched as the characters made the wrong choices. When this happens, we can’t help but feel second-hand embarrassment for them.
Wow, this is quite the plot twist. Fair enough, maybe it should not have come as a surprise to hear that she had a suspended license. At any rate, this was an intriguing detail that made the story even juicier.
People chimed in to say that this was a great story. We have to say that we most definitely agree with them! After all, everyone likes to hear stories about rude people finally getting what they deserved.
We do not know about you, but we really think that the woman could have handled this situation much better. Honestly, why did she choose to act like such a brat in the first place? Maybe she really was under the assumption that she could get have her way all the time.
What do you know? This was not the only case in which a person disregarded the rules. As a matter of fact, this woman in Ohio had the same idea one day. It started when she saw a school bus and needed to wait behind the huge vehicle.
Shena Hardin tried to be sneaky because she did not want to wait behind the school bus. Let us see what she did next! In order to avoid waiting, she drove up the sidewalk. Not only that, but she did this while children had been unloading the bus on the exact same sidewalk. This can’t be good!
She had no idea that she was being filmed as she did this. No, it was not the first time she did this either. It was something she had done many times in the past! In the end, she was taken to the police station.
Going To Court
A court trial even took place. Shena needed to go to court but showed no remorse. As a matter of fact, she even had to audacity to laugh when she made court appearances! Lisa Kelley was the mother of a 9-year-old girl who took this school bus. She had plenty of things to say about this careless driver.
“She’s an idiot, just like her sign says,” Kelley said about Shena. “She did this almost every day last year.” She went on to say, “She won’t stop laughing. She’s not remorseful, she laughed at every court appearance. She’s still laughing, so she needs to be humiliated like this.” What sign is she referring to?
When this was taken to court, the judge decided to suspend Shena’s license for 30 days. On top of that, she also had to shell out $250 to cover the costs of court. This was not all, however. What else did the judge have to tell Shena?
Teaching A Lesson
The judge wanted Shena to learn an important lesson, so Shena was ordered to hold a sign that read, “Only an idiot would drive on the sidewalk to avoid a school bus.” She had to do so at the corner where the kids waited for their school bus.
She had to stand on the corner as she held the sign for an hour each on Tuesday and Wednesday. It was done to let everyone know what she did. Not only that, but it was also freezing cold then at 34 degrees!
As she stood there, she was dressed to keep herself warm in the cold. She was also smoking a cigarette and ignoring comments from passersby. Carks honked as they drove by her. She stayed quiet instead.
“Why do you hate kids,” asked a man called Bill. He worked nearby and witnessed what she was doing. He also pondered, “How else are you going to stop her from doing it again? She really didn’t show remorse for her action after being caught, so you’ve got to try something,”
