A new car built by my company leaves somewhere traveling at 60 mph. The rear differential locks up. The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one."
"Was sitting outside Starbucks in the Shopper's Plaza Sunday morning and this guy pulls up....I'd guess late 40's and clearly not handicapped. No hc sticker/sign in his windshield. I said "Buddy, you're actually parking in 2 handicapped spots?" He said "You're very observant" and ran into Starbucks. I started to yell at him when he came out, but he just ignored me and drove off."
this was from the process of parking their car. eventually, family members got out and helped direct her into the spot.
this is the result of her parking ability and their spotting/guiding:
and yes, that sticker says "STUDENT DRIVER," but that car has had that sticker since i've lived down here (~2 years).
the parking is so bad at my apartment complex, i could provide daily updates of the crap i see.
welcome to the layer cake
Now, as for whether anything will be done after the fact or if you could try to block them from leaving until police come, the likelihood doesn't seem to be there. Shame campaign to the Star or Sun? Absolutely.
Guy at work not only taking up two spaces in his new (to him) lease-spec 328i on the crowded floor of the garage. If that isn't bad enough, he was about 5 feet from the wall so the ass end of the car was sticking out.
He should become friends with the guy in the scratched up, dirty passat who does the same thigng
To be fair, this looks like it might be residential parking with a parking garage where they normally have assigned parking spaces. Could be something where they have two spaces but one car or that a car is in the shop. I do that with my two spaces when one of my cars is out (normally in the shop).
Or they're just an assho1e.
This is from a few years ago in a restaurant parking lot, not sure why he parked like that.
This one is from earlier this month, BMW driver parked like a prick so I pulled in close to drivers door so they had to get in from passenger side. The parking lot is quite large and this was the only open space.
This is an oldie, but a goodie:
