Parking Lots

When you are going to the mall or somewhere with a large crouded parking lot, do you drive around for 15 minutes trying to find a close spot, or do you find a spot far away from where you are trying to go? I went to the mall today and we drove around a while trying to find a close spot but we ended up parking in the back! I am a "drive around for 10 minutes trying to find a good parking spot" kind of girl! hah

In India, many people don't have traffic sense. Even if parking lot is there, people will park anywhere on road to their own comfort. One can see vehicles being parked on the road, or in front of a busy shop causing traffic. So even if I choose to find a parking space close to the shop, I'll eventually end up parking in an awkward way.

i normally dont try to find a good parking space...i am too impatient.i park my car wherever i find the space....i just keep in mind it shouldn't be too away from the main mall. but when the mall is too crowded,we have no option left but to go according to the directions the gaurd gives us while we are parking ..even if he tells me to go far away...i have to!

I have no patience, so I park far away and walk. I really hate it when I get a good spot and when I'm backing out, there's someone on my tail trying to get in! My husband will be a jerk and wait lol, he'll pull back in the spot, back up a bit, go forward. Someday someone's going to go postal on him!

Most of the time I would just as soon park and walk as to drive forever, wasting fuel and time. I am a park far away and walk type of girl

I don't drive, so I normally go to places where there is a bus stop right there. The mall is one of those places. Unfortunately because of construction outside of my apartment, there's no longer a bus stop right here, and that bugs me, because that bus stop was the reason why I moved into this apartment in the first place! I have a small problem walking and another small problem with my vision, so people I ride with will go out of their way to find a parking spot that is close, even if it means driving around the lot until someone moves their car. It's easier for me than parking at the other end of the lot, and walking. If that's how it's going to be, that I'd have to walk from the other end of the lot, I might as well just get there on my own, because the bus stop will be closer than the far-away parking spot. LOL If it's absolutely essential, or if the person is in a hurry, they will drop me off at the door, and then go get a far away spot, later going to get the car, and picking me up at the door. That also works.
