    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!
    This exactly! A guy at work would park his car that way every day.
    one day someone had made a few posters with a picture of his car and the tag "LEARN HOW TO PARK". put them up every at work.
    The driver got all upset and complained to HR...

    Our CEO though shut it down, saying the carpark was 80% empty and that if the employee was that precious about his car he ought to park further away.

    Seriously I think that if you think so much of your car it's best not to take it out of the garage...! Save you the heart aches

    Oh I've loads of photos like this.
    This being the worst, probably because of where it was more than anything.
    At a Children's hospital where car spaces were in demand.
    D!CK!

    **** park-001.jpg


    While I'm on it (and I'm always good for a rant ) another d!ck parking move is when you don't pull in tight to the edge of a driveway so another car can fit in behind you.
    Just to clarify, at my son's school there's two good streets to park on and IF everyone is considerate, there's adequate parking for pick up.
    Pull up close to a drive and you'll fit two or three cars between driveways.
    But one a$$hole who leaves a metre (and sometimes two) in front of them, means you can't get another car in there and you're off up the hill to park.
    Very annoying when I'm struggling with a newborn and a toddler and I see these parents are alone getting out of the car and sauntering off down the road, oblivious!
    One day I took FOUR photos of idiots doing this. (Just to show DH)
    This was late in the year too, not the start of the school term where you'd have new parents just getting used to the ropes.
    Drives me batty and I KNOW it drives other mums batty too because I've overheard many of them complaining.
    I don't know.
    Simple consideration of others isn't it?
    Seems lacking these days.
    Rant over

He sat there waiting for me to pass so he could open his door and get out...Then wound down his window and abused me "WTF are you doing?!?". So I told him I also needed to park and he was taking up two spots!!! He looked a bit shame faced then and finally pulled up. WTF did he think I was doing??? Just blocking traffic on a busy street for fun???

    My fil is guilty of being a crap Parker. But he does it intentionally! Which bugs me so much! He takes up 2 spaces so no one parks near his precious car (which is nothing special anyway) so some people are just arrogant and some people can't park for ****.

    My Mum is similar in that she doesnt want her car damaged but she parks correctly, just as far away from anyone as possible. Most of the time she wont even park in carparks at all! However whenever she does, no matter what we ALWAYS come back to the car (which is parked a million miles away) and someone has parked crooked on top of her. Bahahha

    It cracks me up. She goes ballistic.

    I passed my test the first time but I learnt to drive at 35 so parking is still an anxiety ridden chore. For the record once I'm parked I'm straight and don't take up more than one bay ever but it sh*** me that people are so quick to judge bad parking as pure ignorance or arrogance. This is a parenting site and what is that teaching kids that we laugh at people who aren't as skilled at parking as us? Sure there are arrogant inconsiderate parkers but there are also those that are just less than perfect and working on it. Brilliant parking isn't a prerequisite for safe driving. I do my best to park well but occasionally I'm not as close to the curb as I should be but don't notice until out of the car. Should I take my baby out of her buggy and back into the car to change the angle to perfect even if I'm not endangering anyone and doing so will upset my baby and make me late to pick up kids from school??

    @Freyamum

    I'm not the best parker but I always check the car before I get the kids out. I also know I'm better at turning to park on my right than left and can only reverse parallel properly on my left side.

    I get that it's hard but its also courtesy to your fellow drivers to park correctly.

    I got my learners 2 months ago, so parking gives me anxiety still, especially after seeing posts like this. Not everyone is good at parking and as annoying as it might be to more experienced drivers, it's not always that persons fault.
    Everyone is different, with different abilities.
