Notice that I didn‚Äôt say ‚Äúwhat to do about parking‚Äù. That is because most people park just fine in most cases. Until you get to a tight parking lot‚Ä¶ then it‚Äôs as if you see their true character right there in between the lines. Or, in some cases, all over the lines. Really, how hard is it?
There are several types of parkers out there so let‚Äôs run through the list. (And yes there is a list)
First, you have the careful parker. The one who parks as far away from people as possible. To prevent the door dings and the occasional parking lot scuffle.
Second, you have the fellow who parks right beside the careful parker. We will call him the derelict because he either does it to be annoying (mission accomplished) or because he likes the exercise. Either way, if you are out there quit it!!
Next, there are the big horns. No, not cows, but I am sure you could get a couple of cows in their vehicles. These fellahs get in the tightest places with no regard for the others around them. Usually their rear ends stick out a good foot from the rest of the cars. Then there is the huge trailer hitch on the back. Here is a clue! Ride a horse it would be better for all of us.
Last but not least, you have the paint magnet parkers! These are the most annoying, well, maybe the second most annoying. They usually drive average cars but they park on the line, just over it, or across it diagonally. Really, it‚Äôs not that hard to slide it right in between the lines. Think of it as coloring in the lines, well maybe that is what led to this. Never mind. Just get it right; it is a true show of how lazy some people are.
Now that I am done venting I can rest at ease, that is of course if you guys will park away from the car on the end. If the car looks like it costs more than your home then stay way, way, away from it. You can‚Äôt afford the wax for those cars and even if you could it‚Äôs called respect. I know this is coming from the writer of the beater car article but I have boundaries just like any other person. I mean, unless it is a beater give it a little bit of respect.
