    I often wonder when I see that and it's a nice car, whether it's done on purpose so you wouldn't dare park beside.

    As for me if I ever park like a numpty, I get out, look and get back in and straighten up.

    Looks like the person was in a hurry. I've seen much worse.

    The other day at school this woman decided to park where it isn't a park in fact it was on (over) the no parking yellow line. She was half on the dirt and half on the road right behind me. Now I drive a 14 seater bus. So as you could imagine I was so close to hitting her as I back out. She sat in car giving a dirty look and a not understandable tongue lashing for almost hitting her car. Like what the he'll you choose to park your car illegally and you go mad at me. Stupid Idiot.

    Me too. With my size van you have too. It takes the whole length of a car park and big so harder to see around. The least thing I can do is make it easier for people parked next to me.

    This is a massive pet hate of mine. I actually park away from the parent carparks in an area of the parking lot away from other cars, the parent parks around here are seriously a joke. I park somewhere at the back of the carpark to give myself room to put the pram next to the car and get ds out safely. Yet somehow I almost always end up with some douche canoe parked right next me leaving no room to get my ds back in. Like seriously there's a whole bl00dy carpark free and you choose to do that??????

    I have a fairly wide car and i am quite skinny so i can squeeze out my door or climb over the back seat to get my baby out. After the last thread i sometimes park right next to people like this so i am all the way in the car park and they can't get back in their car....ha ha ha. Usually i come back to an agro driver. Makes me feel vigilante justice has been served.

    Something else I can't stand with parking is when people park too far ahead and when you drive into a free spot only realizing as you're going in that the ****head in front went passed the line so your car's boot sticks out. Drives me bananas because so many people do it!

    I normally look at the white Line next to me as I hop out. If you did it in this case it might look like yours right as its a tiny spot.

    I also can't stand inconsiderate parking. Running late is no excuse, it takes 20 seconds to straighten up! Parking is a required skill to hold a licence. I admit I am a bit black and white about it.

    I have a friend who is terrible at parking (she openly admits it). Last time we went out to a show she was driving and the park was a bit tricky so we quickly did a lap of the car and swapped seats. I adore her but I will say, she could try harder to straighten her car when it's badly parked. She just shrugs and says she sucks at it 😁. Bit her on the b*tt once though. She parked terribly somewhere and someone was not happy. They wrote a very, ahem, unkind word across her windscreen in chocolate. Best part of the story is she had no wiper fluid left and had to drive with her head out of the window until she found a servo. We (including her) still laugh and laugh about that one. Retribution.

    I'm not the worlds best parking person but I try very hard to be in my spot. I have an odyssey and it's a long car. Like another poster said i hate it when ppl go over the line in front of their car.

    I also rarely back into Parks when I have the kids as I'm fed up of ppl who park so close to my boot that I can't swing the door up.

    If you can't park properly then please don't park in busy places.
