Earlier, at In-n-Out:



I should add that, around lunchtime, this parking lot is always completely full to capacity, so parking like this is not justifiable. The next-closest available space was across the street.

Turns out that if you drive it up onto the curb, a '90 Miata will just fit into the space to the left of that Toyota with the passenger-side mirror folded in, leaving about an inch to spare. I kept hoping that someone would show up on a motorcycle and park on the right side.

That's pretty hard to beat.

They always seem to be BMWs for me. Or, at least, German.

technically this guy's not rendering the space on the left unuseable.

in fact there is a "parking theory" that if you park your car (within your space I guess) diagonally at an angle in a spot like that that you increase the available door-swing space.

Though it would seem only on one side?

Lol, I think that guy has it wrong...

I also stumbled across this "Diagonal Parking Theorem" about the infinite number of stupid ways to park: http://scienceblogs.com/principles/2...ng_theorem.php

Today I got a 2-fer.



Okay, technically the Acura isn't quite over the line, but I still count on the line as a violation.

Here you go, sample some Greek parking.



The Seat (light silver car) was parked in the lane NOT in a parking spot.
Funning thing is the car park was almost empty.

Legit reason, but that guy's a dumbass. If you do it, do it right and make sure both spots are unusable for any other car, and [i]definitely don't do it next to a handicap spot. Do you really want to tempt some invalid to try parking their Grand Am in that spot and then smacking your passenger door 14 times with their cane?

At my bank, a like 4ft tall old lady fell out of it and walked in. and the front wheels are sitting on the curb with the front bumper about 4-6in from a brick wall.

Expensive vehicle does not legitimize ****, it just means that the driver thinks he's more entitled than you are.

If I was handicapped, you're damn right I would park next to him, and I'd use the whole parking spot to get out of my car.

If he doesn't want someone parking next to his aston martin, he should have left it at home.

When I see an infinity/lexus/bmw/mercedes/jaguar/insertluxurymakehere on the road, I immediately want to f#ck with them. In most cases, I won't, because there are a few drivers who actually scraped by for a few years to make payments on those cars to own them, but I know that the likelihood of that driver being a self-centered douchebag who cuts in front of people without using a turn signal is immediately higher, and as such, I'm already in a heightened state of douchebag prevention whenever they're around me on the road.
