Seriously?! Really??

First of all, I'm on college campus and I have no control. If it were up to me I would park so far away from anyone, but alas in Gainesville that is not possible. Anyways...

Why some people do this with a small car is beyond me...

To give reference I literally have about only 2 inches off on one side so I didn't park great, but I parked OK.

I agree the Camry parked poorly but your two left tires were on the line too.

You DON'T want to know what I would have done if someone did that to me. If all you did want get pissed and simply got in the passenger side....well you can hold your temper better than me.

I would be tempted to go to the drugstore and buy a D-bag and place it under their windshield wiper as commentary on their driving skills.

They deserve a medal for being such a world class asshat.

All the cars parked around me as I was in classes

Trust me I've had about 10 perfect parkings (they are so rare I do count them)

and one time I measured it. With the RS wheels I have on, there is just about half a inch of wiggle room total (about a quarter inch on each side)!

Basically, even for great parkers, with this car and that spot, it's hard as he** to get a perfect parking off the white lines.

But that guy literally boxed me in lol

That was just completely un-called for and plain rude! I had that happen several years ago and I left a note on their car saying "Next time leave a fu**in can-opener so I can into my car A**hole!" Why do people feel the need to be that way and think its ok???

just bustin... my sister is in the band so I have to toss it as she gave it to me hard in the past... as long as you aren't in Coral Gables it is all good.

Took my Camaro up there too during the season to see her play, same thing happened to me. I thought it was the FSU tag, but I am glad to see they just hate all of us equally.

well the FSU tag will probably get you in more trouble than you want (especially on those gamedays)... but you are a cop so I think that if you ever got in trouble the other party would be left much worse off haha
