People Amaze Me...

going to lunch yesterday... and what i surprise i got...

Someone thought it was appropriate to park on my bumper...




also some incompetent fool parked as close as possible on my passenger side door



So i called the cops, just because i wanted to make a big deal out of this.

looks like they will be buying me a new bumper for one days idiot park job...

people suck, i now park a 1/4 mile from my work in a remote exstention parking lot and walk the rest of the way...

There are way too many people out there who either, don't give a damn, are clueless, or they're just plain disrespectful.

And I see that when they're not parked up against your bumper, they're "crowding" you, when thereappears to be an empty space next to them!

I think the driver of the Civic and the moron behind you need to have their liscense's revoked until they take another driving test and prove they can operate a vehicle NOT LIKE AN IDIOT!

Park out as far away as you can and aviod these riff raffs. Also in the second pic, you need to get in your parking space, your backed over the other space about a foot.

I'm surprised the cops took your side with your bumper hanging out in the the other guy's parking space. The other guy could easily say you backed into him and get off.

Well, most people don't think that quickly on their feet.

Technically yes (and I do see what your saying), but it still doesn't give anybody the right to hit your car.

Well pretty close Dr. SSOOCH but the car was barely over the line.

Still doesn't give the Honda the right to park so close to the Camaro.

Thats why I will never park up against a curb unless im on the furthest end point so i can move far enough forward/backward to leave huge space.

Bottom line; there's NO WAY the person hitting/parking against your bumper could not have known they did it.

If they were that non-observant, they shouldn't be behind the wheel IMO.

We've all parked a little "out of the lines" at some point. This was just the result of a driver being clueless/careless.

I'm also looking at how crooked the Honda beside you is parked. That's a door-ding waiting to happen.

My wife and I have this kind of luck. We will park in a completely empty lot, waaaay out in the back of the lot with a gajillion empty spaces, and when we come out of the store there will be one moron parked right next to us. Usually they are so close that we need a can opener to get in. Sorry for your luck. at least you caught it before they took off and left you wondering who scratched your bumper...

God I hate people sometimes....

In the words of the country song....God is great....Beer is good....People are crazy!!! If you drive it and park it other than in your garage, they will seek you out and find you. It's really sad when very few seem to care anymore....if they ever did.
