What would happen if you sent that pic to the local police?

Probably nothing. Even if they did get a ticket, his rich *** could probably pay it without a sweat.

A few recent "********".
I'm totally stealing the chalk idea soon...

This is my usualy "summer" parking spot in the parking garage at work- It's on the very bottom in what I refer to as "the hole" because it's technically underground and on an end, and consists of only 3 spaces. I tend to park a little into the "gore" because ******** are predictable and will shove themselves into the middle spot. So I was first to park this morning and when I came out...predictable ******* was predictable. Had I parked "properly", I would have them inches from my car. Just because I don't use the whole space does not mean you get to park half way into it.



Then at Target the other day. 2 cars are on the first two spots up front and the truck was about 4-5 spaces back. Funny thing- woman in the Lexus SC was unloading her cart when we came back out. She was too lazy to push the car to the return like 4 spaces over and pushed it into the gore next of her car. While she was getting in her car, the cart rolled behind the car and she backed right into it pretty hard. She then slammed on the brakes and was looking around with this "WTF?" look on her face....only to continue to back up and leave...leaving her cart in middle of the isle. Dumb bitch.



...and right behind us...




Also at work..some retard was half-*** in a corner...so I blocked them in when I had the rental car earlier this year.



Another moron at my work...Marines tags. Just because you are a disabled Marine doesn't mean you get to do what you want. I can't believe someone with so much "discipline" and "respect" could be so disrespectful of others. Not to mention it was several feet out into the isle.




But this one takes the cake. At some point, the corner parking space was turned into a smoking area and the benches added. The building keeps cones in the space occupied by the bench. This fucktard pulled up, got out and moved the cones just to fit in there....because they were too lazy to drive another 15ft to several open spaces (the parking in my building is far from capacity on a normal day...the lot was built for 2 buildings but they only ended up building one...so over half of the spaces are unused at any given time...in the front lot and in the parking deck). Before going back in, I placed the two cones right up against the driver's door...literally.

Oh why oh why haven't I seen this thread till now. In the past year we had a dude fly his MOTHERFUCKING HELICOPTER to the hospital I work at for a common doctors appointment. He did call in advance though, and we gave him permission because we thought he was a medi-vac doing training at landing at our facility. Because, who else flys a helicopter to a hospital right? (but then, if I had a helicopter and could get away with it I would too)

Just a month or so back we had a guy drive into the parking garage with one of those vans with the raised fiberglass roof. He drove through the signs that warned of reduced height knocking them all down and destroying them, then proceeded to drive all the way to the top of the garage and back down again before parking in a nearby parking lot. He destroyed his roof. I wouldn't be surprised if his insurance totaled the truck.

A week or two ago, we spotted a car parked not in a spot, not at the end of an isle, but literally straddling the two ISLES of parking. You had barely enough room to maneuver around it. Finally the owner walked out to the car, tried parking it for about 5 minutes, then came back in the hospital. It is a shame we didn't see this before she left for good, because after video review she was clearly drunk off her ***. I don't normally call the cops on people, but this woman could have killed someone behind the wheel.

Last - I have to admit that my normal parking spot at work is on the end with a dead zone to my right as I back in. I do straddle it by with only the inner edge of my tire touching the line. It doesn't take space from anyone else so I figure its fair game since I get to work earlier than most.

In the future I need to take pictures of some of the stuff I see. Seriously, about half the pictures I have seen here I see that **** every day.

I was just in a tight space. But this dingle dick decided to park all crooked and ****. He was at the end spot and had room. The front was an acceptable 10"+ away.



Before i rubbed my mirror on his rear quarter.

End spot not impeding any flow of traffics or pedestrians = fair game to avoid predictable ******* who would otherwise park right up on my ****...which has happened a few times.

By that logic the other guy was completely justified in parking the way he did. He is not impeding anyone else and you were in that spot first. He simply parked in such a way to allow the most amount of room for the cars on either side of him.

In Dopple's defense, the above really doesn't hold up on closer scrutiny.

There can never be another car negatively affected (directly) by his parking over the line in to a non-spot.

However, should he leave, there will now be a parking spot that is unuseable by the majority of vehicles because the a-hole in the 4Runner decided he wanted to cuddle with the Miata.

If the next person utilizes the space the same way dopple did, and they will, then they should have plenty of room to park a suburban diagonally let alone straight.

Parking all over the end spot is fair game. Parking halfway in ANY other spot is 'Parking Like a Total A-Hole"(tm)

I park on the end spot every single day. I'm half way over the line into the "dead" area right now...

Whatever happens after i leave, i don't care.

I took a picture of the parking spaces to make it all make sense- it's kind of a special situation on why driver's that park in the middle spot tent to park to the right side of the spot constantly. The angled row on the left makes people park to the right side of the left end spot of the 3 back spaces, causing the car who parks in the middle to move to the right (most of the time this is excessively) and the smart person will park as far right as possible in the right spot in order to avoid the middle person from being too close.

I understand sometimes you need extra space to get your kid out of the car at the doctor's office but this person was egregious. Note that there is limited parking at this place and to use up two is just dick.

Roll a grenade under it and walk away. That makes me furious.
