Talking Idiot Parker #5,498,721

So I walk out of the office today and low and behold I see another idiot who can't park.

I park in the same spot nearly everyday. I've had issues with people parking like shit in this same spot before, but never this bad. I literally had no more than 3 inches on each side of me to get out. And I had to pull forward a bit and reverse which was a bit difficult too, as there was not much room on the passenger side.

I wrote out "You Park Like A Dick" on a napkin at first, then decided I wouldn't use such harsh language in the work parking garage. So I just wrote "Learn To Park" and slipped it under their wiper.

The second pic is a bit misleading and it appears I have more than enough room to get out, but I didn't due to there being a car next to me.

It's always the guys with the cheapest cars. Expensive cars are always parked normal, but the guy with the cheapest car wants to get some attention.

Yeah and you always find the dent on the side of your car where the cheap car parked.

Haha, you need to print out some of these:
http://www.youparklikeanasshole.com/...s/notice_1.pdf

And carry around a roll of double sided tape in your car....Very handy! I've used it a couple times. Both times they have fixed their parking. When it's really bad parking, under "Other" I usually put: Woman?

Lexus is considered cheap car? Then what is a Honda considered?

Dude those are probably the 2 crappiest spots in the lot. Most drivers don't know that if you back in you can park much deeper in (like you do). I'm not surprised this happens a lot and I'd be careful parking your car there. You might get hit. It's cool cause you probably avoid door dings, but you risk getting backed into.

Lexus drivers think they drive a Bentley
I've been the victim of road rage from lexus drivers more than any other brand

and it's always some 65+year old douchebag who thinks he bought the road when purchasing his car...

I actually had one guy step out of his lexus and want to fight me because I wouldn't let him squeeze through...
my experience with lexus drivers are very bad.. I'm surprised he didnt try to take up 3 parking spots... and block other cars somehow in the process..

How much room did the guy have in front? It does look like a crappy spot to begin with. I guess you should be glad he didn't have a big truck or pick-up with dualies. They you really wouldn't have been able to get out.

From the picture - it looks like you and the Lexus are doing the same thing - Parking on the corner close to or over the line to prevent door dings on the other side

Parked in the same spot with this car everyday for over a year and a half. No issues whatsoever. It's always been the perfect spot for me.

There's usually an M3 that parks next to me, or in that spot. And a Vette occasionally parks where the Lexus parked, but he pulls in nearly parallel to me. It's pretty funny.

That Lexus is actually parked illegally being that it's not a compact car and these two spots, and the one next to the Lexus and me is as well. He had some room. If he/she would have pulled in straight it would have been a non-issue.

Maybe so, but I'm not preventing anyone from leaving a parking spot. I'm still within the yellow lines. The spot is meant for compact cars, and it's usually what parks there.

I don't care if they park over the yellow line as long as I can get out.

It's the truth, today I saw two 2003 350Z taking 2 spots each. Then there was a brand new 09 Jaguar parked all nice.

Lexus is a Toyota with a different badge, just like Acura is a Honda. Cars for people who want to fool themselves.
