How Do You Handle a Bad Parker?
Yesterday I was just having one of "those" days. I was in a bad mood, I was hungry, I was exhausted, and then THIS happened: I walked out to my car in the parking structure, and I couldn't get to my driver's side door. Why? Because the person next to me decided to park like this -
Now, usually a bad park-job wouldn't drive me totally insane, but because I had to go over to my passenger side door and climb over the middle console, I was a little peeved. There was absolutely no way I was getting in through my driver's side door. My body is like 3x the size of the opening that was made available to me. And before you ask... yes, I was parked in-between the lines, so there was no way this could've been my fault.
So what did I do? I muttered some words under my breath, took a picture (not featuring their license plate, because I would've felt bad) crawled in through my passenger side, sucked it up and drove home. Essentially, I did nothing. I thought about writing a note, but then I decided against it. I didn't have any writing utensils with me, anyways. I know I'm not always a perfect parker, and I've made my fair share of mistakes, but it got me thinking that maybe I would make less mistakes if somebody called me out on one of my crappy park jobs. I was told by a coworker that they tried to park in that spot after I left, but they were unable to.
Should I have done something? What would you have done? And also, have you ever been called out for a bad park-job? Let us know in the comments.
