I'm just waiting for cray cray "stop feeling entitled to car parks" woman to pop up...

I'm very lucky that I'm 5 foot nothing, and a small build, so if someone parks too close to me I can climb over the seats to get DS in and out of the car. But I don't how others would manage!
Because I'm so short I often have trouble staying in the lines of a car park as I just don't have the ability to see the lines - I can't even see my bonnet! And I'm in a small car with a raised seat! But I always, always check and straighten and recheck.

It is a bug bear of mine, too, though. My local shopping centre has ridiculously tiny bays. If my car is parked next to another big car it makes it difficult for us both even though we're both parked straight (and worse if they happen to be close to the line). I can't wait to move so I don't have to go there anymore!!!
Another time I watched a woman parallel park, there were two empty bays but she was half into the bay in front of her. I had a go at her from across the street and made her move. In that particular case it was near King Edward Memorial Hospital and as anyone who has ever been there knows, parking is at a premium! So maybe I am a jerk "parking vigilante" who needs to get a life but undoubtedly some person actually got to park their car because I made her fix her bad park job!
If I was that precious about my car, I would park at the farthest end of the car park where only one side of my car could get hit and it's unlikely anyone else would park on the other side of me anyway!
