Default Is It Really That Hard...

for people to go into a parking spot without scraping up against the car parked next to them? Got my first little scuff on my left rear bumper today. Which leads me to my next question. Is it instictual for people to herd like sheep? I'll park my car in the FAR back of any lot, and for some dumb reason folks decide to herd around my car. They have the WHOLE back lot to park but they park on both sides of me.

Parking here at work is tight. It'* in the city and most have to pay to park. We get free...so the spots are small. Today I parked on top of a little car that played line hog. No other choice really. Oh well...daily driver

Default Re: Parking problems

I had a lady in a Durango whack the **** out of my car one time with her door and then drive off. Needless to say, my driverside mirror is like a bobble-head mirror now Wal-Mart spared me no assistance and said that they had no control over their customers vehicles. Spare me, next time I see some bo-zo/bimbo banging the side of my car like that I'm pressing charges. You dont go taking your anger out on someone elses car because your pissed

I also park away from entrance ways like stop and shops food stores etc.
only because mostly its older people that need to park close
and they always open doors wide

it makes you wonder WTF Im parked all by its self.
and when I come out of the store, sure enough there is a car or truck next to me
and nothing beside them.

I dont get people sometimes

That is retarded. I try to park out by myself, but magically there is always someone with a junker who ends up parking next to me.
