Stephanie says, “I was running in to Rite Aid and noticed this trucked parked in the red zone right in front of the store. It was drizzling rain so maybe they didn’t feel like walking the few extra feet. The driver was still in the car but the engine was off. I took the pic of the back first. Stood behind, focused, snapped the shot. Walked around the FRONT of the SUFV… glared at the idiot driver… stopped inside the lobby of Rite Aid and took the second shot. About then, the just barely 21 beer toting passenger saunters out.
This was taken just down the parking lot from Rite Aid. I guess this guy felt like the law didn’t apply to him since there were a couple people sitting in the back seat. He was parked there for a good 15 minutes. And the truly sad sad thing is… there were legitimate parking spaces just a couple feet away. He thought I was taking pictures of his “awesome” car. I wish I could have taken pics of the anti-government/slightly psycho bumper stickers and flags plastered on the sides of the vehicle.
While driving out of the parking lot of the Prairie Shopping Center (in which Rite Aid and TCBY are located), my hubs and I were flabbergasted that someone parked in the driving lane to go in to Papa Murphy Pizza, order pizza, wait for pizza to be made and bring said pizza out to car. The sprite yet graying man came out of the pizza parlor while I was taking this pic. He was carrying two (2!!) pizzas. Maybe he didn’t think he could make it a few more feet carrying those really heavy large pizzas. Amazingly enough, there were open parking spaces just a few feet away.

Tim says, “This photo was taken at a hotel. The parking lot was almost completely full.”
(Ugh, winter photos already!)
N says, “These are spaces which are raffled off each month. The winners pay $50, which goes to charity, but they don’t have to walk almost a mile uphill from the parking garage. Apparently they also don’t think they have to park within the lines. The one with 2 cars is from May, and the two were parked that way almost every day. The other is from June, so we’ll see how this month progresses.”
(Clearly it took me a few months to post these. Sorry N!)
Jennifer took this at a hotel. “That’s my white work van. I parked properly on purpose to highlight the red car’s carelessness. I hope they had a passenger that needed to get in.”

Julie says, “Apparently this person wanted to see how close to the wall they could get! They were successful.”
Jennifer says, “This shop is so popular that cops direct traffic on weekends. I had to park across the street because it was so busy today.”
Don says, “I was awaken from a nap to a call from my wife telling me someone had parked ‘a little close’ to my Road King. I waited about 2 hours for them to return…they did not. I called the police to document had there been any damage. Not illegal to park bad..and no damage. Good thing I am not a Hells Angel. Who thinks it is okay to park a 2500.00 dollar car on top of a 25,000.00 harley?”
Hazel took this in a supermarket car park somewhere in the middle of England. “There was plenty of other spaces available in the car park but this person obviously felt the need to take up more than one.”
Missy took this in the parking lot of her apartment complex. “I’m actually impressed at how precisely this driver centered himself on the line.”
Mallory says, “I don’t understand how you get out of your car satisfied with parking the way this person did. How could he/she head into the shopping mall without noticing that there’s half a parking space left to back into or that half the car is still in the aisle?”
