    Default How do you park like this???

    I mean, seriously! I get it, you pulled in crooked but surely you noticed when you got out of your car that you've parked like crap so you get back in and straighten up.

    It shows complete and utter arrogance to leave a car parked like this, particularly in a car park that is specifically for one business and doesn't have a whole lot of bays.

    ...or leave a nice key mark?

    But no, I hate it when I see cars parked like that. How pretentious and self involved can a person be?

    Reminds me of a story...an ex-coworker had a friend who parked her car on the side of the road in front of a house, but crooked so part of it was sticking out a little. When she went back out to her car it was damaged and a note was left on her windscreen. It said "next time learn how to park".

    Total arrogance!

    We have a chappy at our work who parks like that sometimes. He gets in late so there's usually only the two end spots left out the back. He'll usually take up both

    Erm maybe they aren't great at parking? Elderly? Bad parking isn't always just arrogance. There are spaces either side so maybe they didn't realise it would be an issue. I hate driving and find parking a particular issue. I'm one of those annoying people who will park at the opposite end to a car on the street so anyone wanting to park must parallel park. I don't do this cus I'm arrogant but because I am literally petrified of being parked in I have no clue how to get out from between 2 cars. I try and park further away so as not be a nuisance. I'd gladly give up my car if I didn't live in the suburbs with 3 kids. Sorry to rant but I don't know why people have to be so condescending and cruel towards bad parkers. I've seen people being beeped at trying to get in and out of tight car spaces and think seriously how is that helping? Sure some people are being arrogant or selfish but probably more are just having a bad day or are still trying to perfect this one non critical driving skill.

    Ooooooh, that's harsh! It's like the old "people think I'm leaving my details..." type note.

    That's just it, I was actually running late. It doesn't take longer than 5 or 10 seconds to straighten your car. You should leave a note on his windscreen or get yourself some chalk...

    Parking is a prerequisite for a drivers licence. Not knowing how to park properly is a traffic hazard. That's why people get agro about it.
