There is parking a little crooked and then there is being a jerk.
I personally don't like my car being in the space crooked but it doesn't bother me if others are crooked within their bay ... it is when they do stuff like these pics that I get annoyed.

I am so close to getting my Ps and I just know all of these BH threads are going to haunt me into anxiety and having no skills whatsoever when I'm finally out and about on my own 😳
My local Woolies has tiny car parks and in the country here most people drive four wheel drives. It's ridiculous and I'm surprised what with no room between cars and terrible visibility that there aren't more accidents. I'm with @Best Things - down with tiny parking spots!

There was someone who parked similar and it was only car park left at the hospital the other day when I was taking DS to emergency. I then had to park wonky so that I could open my door to get out. Of course, when I got back they had left and it looked like I was the one who parked badly for no reason. I guess it pays to remember that sometimes there is a reason for a wonky park. And yeah - sometimes people are arrogant but it isn't always the case.

Chunkydunks saying "no excuses"... my granduncle was messed around by the people who give him his permit, and he had a horrible time with parking and people doling out their version of justice. The parking at his local shops is awesome for disabled people, and the parking for everyone else is across a road. There is no way he would have been able to manage that extra distance.

Right now, if I do those things then I will be doing my happy dance and an imperfect park will honestly be the least of my worries.
I imagine that as I become more confident and skilled then I will feel like I can actually 'do better' and take that time to redo it. I don't know if that makes sense.
Also, for me, I find some aspects really challenging. I can't tell which way my wheels are facing or if my steering wheel is upright or not. I can't really tell if I'm straight so rely heavily on lines and landmarks. It does take more ability than I naturally have.
Thankfully I have a good instructor who is completely baffled by my lack of spatial awareness but is working with me to help me find some strategies. But when I'm alone and anxious with no one to calmly talk me through it I don't know how well I'll do. I'll do my best, but I may make others ragey. And when I can I'll park in Siberia well away from others.
So yes, I think that the reality is that not everyone has the same skills as everyone else.
I can see how it is frustrating for others though.
