Question For Today- Bad Parking
November 24, 2017 3:44pm CST
With the holidays upon us we will be heading out to do our Christmas and other seasonal event shopping. Which brings me to today's question, what is your opinion of drivers who do a bad job of parking? You know, the ones in multiple spaces who have expensive cars and are protecting their vehicle from dings. Or maybe drivers who have no spatial ability who parked their car against your bumper. What can you do to protect your car against those bad parking jobs? Have you seen anyone whose car was unusally parked? What did it look like? Have you ever had an incident with someone who damaged or dinged your car due to bad parking? Photo- google images/youtube.com

Actually, yes except we were parked and the lady was driving at our car, then smashed into us. Her excuse, 'I'm not use to driving this car, it's not mine, it's my daughter's!' So, did that fix the rear-end of our car? Nope, her daughter's insurance company did!

I have a lot of anxiety for parking. I sometimes need to back up and pull up a few times, but I never leave my car parked terribly wrong. I've had a few scrapes here and there, but my car is ten years old, so I just don't worry about it.

Parking spaces are too narrow and the cars are every year bigger, even if you do your best, most of the time you are obliged to be very close to the other car. You can pay attention when you open the door to avoid to damage the narrowing cars.
@LadyDuck I was in my car one time and someone pulled next to me in the parking lot. He paid no attention to me being in the car and opened his door into mine. I gave him the dirtiest look, and he quickly close his door and headed off to the store. I was so surprised and angry at the same time

It's idiotic. I don't know what can be done. Report it when things happen I guess. I had gone with the kids to Target one time and some people pulled in to a space in front of me and parked after we had gone in the store. When I came out with the kids they were standing by the cars. They said I had hit their car when I parked. No one was parked in front of me when we parked. They kept on for a few minutes about me hitting their car. Until they realized I wasn't going for it. Some people really have their nerve. We can't let them get it over on us.
