This is a whiny post. Do not read if you are in a hissy mood...you don't hear me gripe too often....:)
Over the course of our Tesla journey (almost two years) and prior to ownership, I have only encountered two Tesla drivers that were A-holes.
The first one was at a gated community at Porter Ranch prior to our ownership. Dude was just fascinatingly rude to us as we tried to visit a friend within the gated community. Borderline racist stuff. I am Asian/Indian, by the way but have spent most of my life in the Americas.
Today was the second time, at the Westlake Promenade. Guy was behind me all the way from the freeway exit, to Westlake Boulevard, and finally to the SCs. I turned into the far section (stations on each side), turned right partially into one, and then started to reverse to back in. Standard T move. Somehow, this guy with his smaller radius 3 snuck behind me and backed right into the spot I was aiming for. Startled, I looked at the guy in the stall next to one I had partially turned into and he was rolling his eyes and pointing at the 3. I backed back into the lane, tried to look at the guy and he just stared at his phone. So I eventually parked into the stall next to eye roller, and we started chatting. All the time Mr. Rude never made eye contact with either of us.
Anyway, made another friend today. But also laughed at a numbskull.
Was I wrong in any way? I signaled and why else would I be at the SC? Did Mr. Rude think I was pulling forward into a back charging stall? And it wasn't like he really needed a charge bad. He left after about 10 minutes (guess).
And to add to my annoyance, the stall I had to switch to was not functioning!
