Washington, D.C. residents are sparring with another over snow-free parking spots after the capital was buried under nearly two feet of snow over the weekend.
In one instance, a man posted a wooden sign in a shoveled spot warning everyone to stay away from the space because he put great effort into clearing the snow.
A reporter for the Washington Times, Andrea Noble, posted a photo of the sign to Twitter Monday, setting off a firestorm of bickering and hate. Even the man who allegedly placed the sign, known as Nathan Bergman on Twitter, defended himself from the attacks.
“Please know – if you choose to take this spot – that I will spend the same amount of time, energy and money to place the snow back in it’s original place around your vehicle,” the sign reads.
So I guess this is the Capitol Hill version of the lawn chair. pic.twitter.com/EG3fI3206S

While many on Twitter said he was acting entitled and pointed out the space was public, others around Capitol Hill have posted similar signs.
“If you park in my spot I’ll break your fu*king windows, have a nice day,” another resident’s sign reads, according to Noble’s Twitter feed.
Another person taped a piece of paper to a plastic lawn chair in a shoveled spot that said, “DO NOT PARK IN MY SPOT!!! I shoveled this spot so therefore it’s mine!! If you park here I will break your sh*t. P.S. My spot!!!”
The historic blizzard hit Washington D.C. over the weekend, and sent the city into a frenzy with poorly prepared roads, countless accidents and general hysteria.
