Worst parking sins (repent!!)
Oh, parking. How you can light up our hearts when we find you and how you can make us seethe in anger when we don’t…. and how you can have us cursing humanity when we DO find parking but it’s less than ideal. This mainly occurs when some jerky parker has committed one or more offenses from our list of the Worst Parking Sins:
Sin #1: Taking up more than 1 space. This can occur when you park crookedly in your space, thereby taking up another space and pissing people off.
Sin #2: Parking all up in another space’s business. This is when you park so|close to the spot next to you that they will have to squeeze into their car from the passenger side or trunk.
Another domino effect from this crappy lack of etiquette is that the car that parks next to your car that toes the line will also have to park crappily so as not to hit you and so on and so forth… because of YOU.
Sin #3: Taking up other cars’ parking opportunities just to give your car space in the front and back. This is one of my biggest pet peeves, especially when trying to find street parking in the city. This occurs when there is enough curb length for two cars but a jackass car decides to park in a way that takes up just enough space to allow just themself and maybe a Mini Cooper or Smart Car. #IHATEYOU
Sin #4: Parking like a n00b. When an unsure or unskilled driver tries to park unsuccessfully for an extended period of time, thus making life hard for people who are just trying to live their lives in peace.
Sin #5: Reckless parking. When you run over other cars in the parking lot… and then DRIVE AWAY. And did I just say “run over”? Why yes, yes, I did.
P.S. In my search for bad parking jobs, I found some hilarious parking cards (i.e., cards that you place on people’s dashboards after they offend you with their d-bag parking). This one topped my faves from GuajolotePrints on Etsy:
