Charger theft

Is this common behavior in the Tesla community? Third time I’ve run across it. The blue MS is parked in a spot that has no charger and it appears he just removed the one plugged in the M3 next to him judging by the adapter still in the M3.

It's possible that the charging spot was ICEd when the blue S arrived, so he's charging from the spot next to it. Then the 3 arrived and installed his adapter in the hopes that the S driver would plug him in when he's finished. Ya never know.
I'll agree. For the non-Tesla crowd, if you arrive at a charger, and it is in use, then if you open your charge port, that's a signal to the currently charging user, that "When finished, please plug me in"
On my Leaf, I can open the charge port and it stays open, doesn't work that way on the Tesla, but by shoving the charge adapter in, it is the effective equivalent.
