Do You Drive Around Parking Lot Looking for Closest Space?

I went Christmas Shopping yesterday. I was amazed at how many people drive around and around to try to get a parking spot close to the door. I take the first place I find. I don't care if I have to walk. What do you do?

It annoys me when people do that. What is worse is when they sit in the lane blocking everyone waiting for someone to pull out. I hate that so much. I might drive down a couple of lanes just to see but I almost always park at the end. I don't mind walking. If the kids are with me (which means most likes dh is too) my husband drops me and the baby off at the door if it is cold or raining or really hot and then parks and walks with the older kids. I almost never go out alone with the kids. People are so lazy anymore. I even park at the end when I am pregnant. I remember being 9 1/2 months pregnant and in so much pain and still walking from one end of the parking lot to the other while it was pouring down rain. I kind of got upset to see that one of the "pregnant mom" spots next to the handicapped spots was taken by a woman that was obviously not pregnant nor with a pregnant woman. Not that I would have parked there but it really made me mad.
