That’s what happened in the Koreatown neighborhood in Los Angeles, California where parking is at a premium.
One car was backing in while another car was pulling forward. Both ended up sitting idle for an hour and a half.
The standoff was documented by a woman in a building across the street.
“They were just on their phones sitting there, being patient. It was like a really beautiful display of patience,” said the woman.
The showdown ended with a twist when another car left its parking space.
The video has now gone viral with millions of views.
