2011 Nissan Leaf SL: How Leaf Drivers Exact Revenge
September 06, 2011
It's not news that in this age of Twitter, Facebook, blogs and forums, people are telling each other off online instead of in person. But when one 2011 Nissan Leaf owner chose to vent on a Nissan Leaf forum after another electric car owner wronged him at a charging station in Los Angeles International Airport, well it's just a good read.
Basically the Leaf owner left his car at the station to be charged for a few hours but when he returned he saw that another electric car owner unplugged his car and plugged his/her own. So rude! He then complained to a Leaf forum where its members hunted down the other driver and are now keeping watch on that other car which, after two weeks, STILL hasn't moved.
In any case, I can't believe the gall of that person and wonder if this is a common occurrence at charging stations with people unplugging each other. Can't say I'm surprised as environmentally-conscious folks have been accused of treating the environment better than they treat people.
Electric car owners, has anything like this ever happened to you?
