Woman stunned as neighbor pulls ‘Uno Reverse’ card in parking lot saga
A woman furious that her neighbor was taking her paid parking space was shocked to learn the truth about who really owned the space.
Shirley Liu, from Sydney, Australia, shared a clip on her TikTok page, @shirl3yliu, as she expressed her frustrations at coming home to find the same car taking her place again.
“I’m so pissed, I have so many things to do today that I don’t have time for this,” reads the text on the screen.
In the voiceover, Liu says, “So this has happened way too many times, but these people randomly decide to park in my parking spot because it’s right next to the entrance.
“And I clearly have these signs saying don’t f****** park here, and they’re not listening. So I decided to park this f**** in it. So yeah, call- me.”
She then pans the camera to show her car directly behind the one in her space, blocking it.
The clip, shared on Saturday, then flips to show a conversation with the owner of the rogue car, as the on-screen text reads: “Boldness lol.”
The owner begins by asking, “Hello, why are you blocking our car?”, to which Liu remarks, “Hi, I don’t know why you parked in my place, since the sign clearly says don’t not do it. I’m currently at work. I’ll try to get back as soon as possible.”
But the other driver responds, claiming he is the owner. Liu pushes further, informing them that she is renting the space.
Confused, the other driver asks, “I didn’t rent you. Who rented you this car seat?”
Liu claims she was subletting to someone, to which the landlord reveals, “He owns me rent and he ran away. [sic]”
After the confusion was exposed, many people were in disbelief at the outcome of the clip which racked up over 3 million views.
Inspired wrote, “Didn’t see that plot twist coming,” while @emborts commented, “Wait he knocked Uno you lol. We need an update.”
Adrian Wood pointed out: “Always 2 sides of a story… very unlucky!” and Genmiranda15 asked, “So what are you going to do about the plot twist?”
The Don added: “So you rented a parking space from someone who rents a space? Is subletting allowed?”
Liu shared a follow-up where she clarified a few things, confirming that she was subletting the space to someone else in the building.
In comments, she explained, “I think the tenant I was renting the place from just fled the country and broke his lease without warning…
“I messaged the guy I was renting from and got no response.”
In the fiasco, she claimed she ended up losing two months parking rent and bail money, but confirmed she had found another place to rent now, which she hoped would be hassle-free.
Newsweek contacted Liu for comment.
