i could make this thread 5 pages just from the idiots in my parking lot
up it eh part where i live half of the spaces are on a wall and 95% of the people back in mind you watching them back in is usually a highlight of my day most fo the time they are a good 3 to 4 feet from the wall and sticking out and the white lines seem to be suggestions to most as well
I change the oil - I'm triggered, Install new brake pads - I'm triggered, Get blinded by HID's - I'm triggered, Look at brand new models of my car - I'm triggered, Dead battery - I'm triggered, TRIGGERED TRIGGERED TRIGGERED TRIGGERED!
I'm gonna steal this pic for my dumb story except for me it was a minivan not a pick-up .
M.B."Hey you can't park there."
"Oh really why?"
"Park better next time."
M.B. "Well I guess I'm gonna have to smash into your door then."
I point to the security camera's in the lot and explain that we're on no less the 3 camera's at this point, don't say something that stupid. She continues to whine and cry, at that point I tell her either smash my door in or shut your mouth. Finish up inside, come outside to a perfectly fine door and no van. Could it have gone different?, sure but high 90's heat and a busted ankle kind of left me with very little patience.

and that was done on his 2nd attempt to park.
AND required him opening the doors to look for the lines.
he got out and was walking away from his car when i told him he was parked in two spots and that he should try again.
he did return to his car, and i just assumed it was to avoid confrontation.
when i left the store... to my amazement... he DID repark the car in a single spot.
still sitting about 1 inch off the left line. but he actually TRIED to fix his terrible parking when i called him on it.
The test of the machine is the satisfaction it gives you. There isn't any other test. If the machine produces tranquility it's right. If it disturbs you it's wrong until either the machine or your mind is changed.
I'll throw up a few of the better ones I've captured recently...
That's my buddy's 135, and my FRS behind it.
I guess because this isn't a spot, people feel entitled to park sideways?
We put some lines to make it more of a "No Parking" zone, but people still like to park there anyway...
The parking spots in Palo Alto are huge...but apparently not huge enough.
So imagine you drive up to a dealership to browse used vehicles...you see a sign that says CUSTOMER PARKING and the very first spot is available. What do you do? You park out way outside the lines and block a door, of course.
