That is an epic @sshole parking job.


I think they have relatives visiting the Gold Coast LOL 

ETA: they love shiny red sports cars, can't park straight and still take up 4 bays. It's our big road race this weekend, the Gold Coast 600, and everyone's here, petrol heads of all ages.

 Totally.


This is how to park like a tool!


At Home Depot this afternoon.  Notice the 'Olympic' license plate; I wonder whether she also demands 2 lanes at the olympics?


With all that is going on, I have to say it is refreshing to see evidence of a "normal" annoyance.


Oh, how I love this thread. Please keep them coming. 


Perhaps the above is the newest trend, vehicular distancing?


i am in a parking lot getting into my car...both spots on my drivers side are empty....i open my door, grab my lysol and give a spritz on my bag/keys before getting in....get in the car, reach for me keys in my pocket...and a B is leaning on her horn because she HAD to drive through the spot next to my car......it was MY fault she failed to look before pulling in and trying to drive through (she wanted to park the next aisle over)...and could NOT wait 3-5 seconds for me to close my door.

I was so tempted to leave a note on her car "sorry about  the flat tire" and imagine her expression as she checks her tires expecting to see a slashed tire (but not having one...just a scare with the note)

and i was close to the end of the aisle..she could have easily just drove to the end to go around.


There are an incredible number of self-entitled drivers out there.  2 weeks ago I was at ShopRite in Springfield (Morris Avenue), which has a clearly marked one way parking lot.  As I was leaving, a 'gentleman' in a large BMW signalled me to hold back, so he could go against traffic to grab an open spot.

I can get a bit stubborn, so I signalled no.  He repeated his signals.  I grabbed a piece of paper, and wrote '1 way', showed it to him.  He opened his car window, and yelled to me:  'I know, I just want that spot'.

I stuck to my guns, and blocked him.  It took 2-3 minutes before he relented and followed the flow of traffic.  My apologies to the cars behind me.


sticking to your guns can get you murdered...


Given that at any given moment these days there are LITERALLY dozens of empty parking spaces, I thought this thread might sink. But even with an abundance of places to park, people are still making K turns to go left onto spaces, and stopping their cars in the middle of Maplewood Ave to let people in or out. 

But the proverbial cake was taken by a woman the other day picking up food at Arturo's. With two empty, legal parking spaces available directly across from the restaurant, she chose to park her SUV smack in the middle of the crosswalk. With a legal space not even 20 feet from where she parked. Don't people realize it's not safe to block the view of pedestrians in the crosswalk? And why is it that important to save a half dozen steps?



Yes, I got stuck behind a car parked smack in front of Arturo's while the driver got out and walked to the sidewalk to get her curbside pickup order. Then casually put her food in the right side of her car and walked back around, got in a drove off.

It's a travel lane. Not a parking lane. As you pointed out there are multiple open spots all over.

Maybe Arturo's is the BMW of restaurants,  attracting the entitled.

I think you are wrong about that. Whether its by Arturos, Bagel C, Village C, there are always cars parked to pick up product or passengers or discharge passengers.

You need to understand the difference between de juris and de facto.

It would be considerate if Arturo's put up a sign that said no parking in front of the store.  But the blame still lies with the a-holes that refuse to park legally.


In Summit, the city has apparently suspended all parking fees, and the shopper lot gates are even open. You could run in a zig zag down Springfield Avenue and not encounter a parked car or, often, even a moving one. Yet a good number of the few parkers there still feel the need to park illegally.  On yellow curbs, across crosswalks, whatever. I guess they just cannot alter their behavior.

 But its not just Arturos.

However, Arts could help by telling pick-up customers they will only deliver pick-ups to the side parking spaces.
