okay, so i couldn't come up with a clever little title for this rant. maybe i'm just too mad. bad (read: self-centered) parkers piss me off more than most things. you know the type, "there's only a few spots left here so i think i'll park in the middle of two spots."
usually, bad parkers drive one of 2 types of vehicles: sports cars or big trucks (often half-tons). why is it necessary for these people to make sure that the next guy gets the royal screw job?! it often happens at the movie theater on busy nights or at other places/events when parking would already normally be scarce as it is.
and why the hell doesn't parking lot "security" do something? it's clear they're just there so certain property holders get a break on their insurance, but they could do something as long as they're there. i'm not even sure how these people can do it without thinking "hey...maybe...maybe someone would like to park in the gigantic empty space that i'm hording." of course, some are more flagrant about it than others (parking diagonally when the parking lot is clearly designed to park), but an offense is an offense.
unfortunately, some of the worst parking is at church on a sunday. for some reason, a lot of christians, though they have strong convictions about many things, don't think it's important to show consideration for other people who would like to park closer to the church in -50 degree conditions.
if you're one of those causing the problem, please, the next time you decide it might be fun to park diagonally when everyone else is parked another way, try to realize that a decent human being may not do what you're considering.
