Twitter can truly be a wholesome place sometimes. And proving it to be true is a woman from Koreatown, Los Angeles who spent hours documenting an intense(ly petty) contest between a black car and silver car, bent out of shape over a single parking spot.
A woman by the Twitter handle of "Chicken Tikka Mariah" posted a detailed thread of the epic battle between the two cars that unfolded the road outside her window.

According to her thread, the two cars first locked taillights at around 6.30. Apparently, the black car was trawling the street for a parking spot when he happened to just cross an empty spot, the one outside Mariah's window. when the driver of the black car realized he had missed the spot, they tried to back into the spot.
Unfortunately, a silver car had by that time had drawn up right behind the black car with the aim of filling the very same parking spot. Not having the black car's backtracking, the silver car's driver decided to stand their ground, resulting in a silent tussle between the two cars that lasted over an hour.
The showdown was documented by Mariah who admitted in the videos that she had nothing better to do than to film this awesome power-grab.
And thank god, she did. The videos are hilarious and each has close to or more than a million views, meaning millions across the world enjoyed the showdown.

At the end of the thread, she posted a note for the car owners. she even made an email account on Gmail named firstname.lastname@example.org and asked the drivers to share their side of the story with her.
The thread was immensely popular on Twitter with many thanking Mariah for the "service". Many also wondered how the two drivers fought from inside their cars without actually stepping out and brawling it out.

Some even tried to pontificate on who was in the right - the black car or the silver car.
You're supposed to drive past the spot and back in to parallel park.The black car was parking correctly. The silver car was in the wrong.— Amber Jennings (@bunnytrax) April 3, 2019
They both knew if they pulled away they would be driving around for another hour looking for a spot so they were both content to just wait it out.— Gentleman Ball (@OMGitsGball) April 3, 2019
Black car is parallel parking, silver car is in the wrong, it seems.— botchcassidy (@patrick32160841) April 3, 2019

Kudos to Chicken Tikka Mariah for showing the world that Parking in Koreatown is no less than a power-packed Martin Scorsese film.
