From the article:

Another added: −”I'd pay to see two EV owners fight over a charge spot. I don't think any fists would be involved ... it would be either a slap attack or purses being swung."

Maybe we could get cable TV to put it on PPV ...

With our cost of living rising while our income remains stagnant, we try to cut corners everywhere. This includes unplugging things not in use. Since I’m paying for these stations, I should get to unplug them. I can always say that I’m doing it for the environment if the pitch a fit.

This is happening because liberals are taught from birth that you can get something for nothing.
