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.
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.

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 ****.

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.
