Janine says, “I made the terrible mistake of going to the mall the week before Christmas. Needless to say, I had to park about four and a half miles away. On the hike to Macy’s I spotted this. I wish I could take credit for the note, but it was already there. When I came out about an hour later, the car was still there. So this person must have been parked like a douche for quite some time. I don’t really understand why someone would take up two spaces during the busiest time of the year. I mean, the obvious answer is because he/she is an asshole. Is he/she worried someone is going to hit their car? It’s a fucking piece of shit car! This was at a mall in Jersey (Cherry Hill) but before anyone talks shit on Jersey driver’s notice no front tags – so this was an out of state asshole.”
JWsHon says “This picture was taken in the Bow Tie Theater/ Bed Bath and Beyond Lot. The lot was packed, so I parked as far away as I could. There were 2 spots on either side. I ran into a store and dropped something off and ran back to car. Not more then 5 mins was I gone… but when I returned, I was ever so happy it was christmas time and I was sporting my camera!
I left a note for the pickup driver to tell him where he can view the picture!”

Anthony says, “Almost every day, outside my local Wawa, someone decides that the stripes are a target. In spite of the fact that there are several open spaces, someone decided to use the stripes.”

Elise took this at the Chapel Hills Mall. She says, “I’d come to do a little Christmas shopping and ended up having to park pretty far away, but it was a nice day and I don’t mind the walk. However, traversing the parking lot, I came across this little beauty. Now, I understand that the holidays are kind of a hectic time to be shopping, and parking can be sparse, but…isn’t making up your own spot without even a bit of snow-cover to hide the fact that you did pushing it just a little?”
Looks like everyone in that area is parking poorly, but who knows who started it. Probably this guy.

Jean took this with a cell phone, so it’s not the best quality. But if you squint your eyes, you can kind of tell what’s going on. Jean says, “Granted, there are many more trucks around here than the average place, they are a way of life in Texas. But that is all the more reason why a person driving a truck should be able to park it! I myself drive an F-150 Supercrew with a long bed. Not always the easiest to park, but I do my best and do fix it when I mess up. But this guy? Didn’t even try! It looks like he/she did this on purpose. Essentially taking up four parking spaces as the passenger side front corner is just over the line. To make matters worse, at least in my mind, these spots are angled, unlike all the pictures taken in parking lots like Target have, which are straight spots. In a truck that big, angled spots are much easier to pull in and out of.”

Cynthia took this at a store carpark. “I guess the van could actually fit in the one parking space, but obviously the driver hadn’t bothered to do so!”
Hunter Express must like to express park too.

Kjaere says, “This was in a shopping center on Black Friday… I guess someone was a little too eager to get those deals and didn’t bother to adjust their parking!”

Tim took this outside a bank. “I can see being close to the line and not fixing it. But there is no excuse for this.”
Sherman Oaks, CA
Ezra took this at Whole Foods and says, “Because you just can’t wait to get to that organic food.”
Linz says, “I saw this at WalMart the day before Thanksgiving. I know it is dark, but all I had was my Crackberry, and I had to send it in. When we went into the store, someone was sitting in the vehicle like they were waiting for someone to come out. When we came out, there was no one in the vehicle. I guess they got tired of waiting and went in. They must have been so tired they couldn’t move their vehicle, and they most certianly were too tired to walk ten extra steps from a legal parking spot that was near by.”
