So what do we call it when you're ICEd by an EV?

    my MS is scheduled for delivery in two weeks, so i've been on the lookout for ICEing wherever i see it.

    imagine my surprise when at work this morning, in a row of 4 Blink/Chargepoint stations, there were four EVs parked but only TWO charging! the signs clearly said "parking for EVs only while charging." i spoke to security about it, they said they'd get in touch with the drivers.

    but since they aren't ICE cars, is it proper to say you were "ICEd by an EV?" or is a new term in order?

    EVV' in "you've been evv'd by a fellow ev owner"

    (rhymes w/ "eff'd," not "eee vvv d", bc that's what just happened to you)

    Sadly I've seen the word 'Musk'd' used on multiple occasions on LEAF forums... sometimes even when the Tesla is charging since it's assumed that they could still get home if w/o charging but don't want to charge at home.
