I'm surprised that the 4 hour charge restriction isn't programmed into the charge station. In my area there are charge stations that place a time limit of between 2 and 4 hours (depending on location) on the charge station and when you've reached your limit the charge station will interrupt the power. If you want to charge for another 2-4 hours, you have to swipe/pass your card again.
Again, not all of our charge stations have this time restriction... it's mostly limited to the charge stations in the downtown (center city) area where parking is limited as well as the number of charge stations. These charge stations are usually free (they include an attached card to activate the station), since they have a general parking fee for all cars.
I would leave a note explaining the situation you're in, and mention that you observed a 4+ hours pass (while he/she was connected) reference the charging time restriction posted nearby. If you still feel like you're getting "charge rage" from them, then report the offense to the facility that you're parking at & the police.
