I have a photo taken the other day of some **** who parked so close that I couldnt even open the sliding door of our car! It's hilarious when I look at it now. But at the time, having to climb through the other side to strap dd in was hell! It is so rude and I took the number plate so I could check for damage once I got out of there! Luckily there wasnt any! But I gotta get some of those parking stickers Lmao!
If I'm not parked over your line I would be mighty ****ed if you felt 'the right' to slam your car door into mine because you can't easily put the baby in the car - we have babies too and car parks are tight - particularly if you drive a large 4wd. Screw that - people just have to remember that we live in a large world and we all have to try our best to get along. I'm sure the person parking close to your big car wasn't purposely trying to make your life difficult.

I drive a big 4wd but you have to consider others when parking. I think these stories are about ppl who have parked rediculously close or even over the line leaving little or no room to enter your car.
i drive one of those big 4wd's - not by choice but because its loaned to us free of charge by the in-laws.
it is so hard to find spaces big enough to park it.
i would be incredibly peeved if someone slammed their door into my car if i was legally parked between the lines - between them is between them whether its just in or far in.
I drive a medium size 4wd and I make sure I park well coz I have been the one to have the teeny tiny little car parked close.
Even had some guy park in my pocket while I was holding dd about to put her in he got out and looked at me before walking off... I gave him "the look" so he got back in and moved over!
My motto is "if you can't park it, dont drive it"
I am so over people damaging my property if you do not care about the state of your car that is YOUR choice but I do. It is not just a thing to get me from A to B it is 20 years old and apart from the dings I have not fixed yet from inconsiderate adults it looks and runs as good as the day it rolled out of the show room. I park in two parks and that is because of careless people not because I feel like being rude or greedy. Even when I park in the empty car park people will still park next to me and smash the door into me
I am not attacking you just over people judging me when they are the ones who do not care about others property. I once told a lady to take her hand bag off my car politely and she told me it was just a car and to get over it so I threw it on the ground and she went of at me then got into her car parked behind me!

I don't think many people think it's acceptable to damage someones car. But I think many people have thought about wanting to do it in similar situations.
As I said before, I drive a 4wd, and if I have to park 100 mtrs away for the shops rather the park on top of someone, that's what I do.
I don't want them to damage my car, on purpose or by accident simply trying to squeeze into the little room Ive left them.
Said person today was not within their lines. Wish I'd taken a photo today to show you.
Do you live in a high traffic area and have you been parked in often? I think these things make you a much more considerate Parker & much less understanding when you see someones parked sideways across 2 car parks.
Fairy floss thats discusting that so many people have treated your car so poorly! If I were you I'd be installing a video camera to catch the low lives!!
I think we can all agree there is a big difference between someone trashing you car on purpose vs scratching your car getting into theirs when you knowing parked in a space already occupied by them.
