In the Lakeland Florida parking garage, I came up to the charger with dread upon seeing the Tesla parked in one of the two slots. However, that owner had been thoughtful enough that they were using a 110V outlet and their slow charger instead of the 240V, so I was able to get the charge that I needed to get home without LBW. I thought that was so considerate of them and greatly appreciated it.
Unlike the Volt owner sitting in a different location at a charger, plugged in with his engine running (?) and he tells my wife that he's not leaving until he's fully charged. So he probably left two minutes after she went in to Kohl's, who provides the charger for their customers, and she didn't come back out for about an hour so she missed out on the charge she needed, as opposed to the two minutes of extra charging the Volt owner wanted, if he or his wife ever went in to Kohl's.
