King of the lot

Houston, TX

Lauren says, “Also where I live – a Camry encroaching the Cherokee, and a tiny Honda feeling like the king of the parking lot!”

Bad bad Buick

Houston, TX

Lauren says, “This is what I get to come home to every day.  There is a really wide space to the left of the Buick, but it’s that way because a sidewalk begins from it (and there are still lines painted…).  Also, I believe the car to the right of the Saturn in the second picture is the same Buick from the first.”

The Jerk

Kennebunkport, ME

Christine says, “My husband and I ate at Federal Jack’s Brewpub. When we left, there was this jerk parked like this next to our car (the tan car with the spoiler parked to the right of the jerk is ours).

We were able to back out of our space without hitting the jerk.  But if the next car to come along looking for a space was any bigger than ours, they’d not be able to get into the space.  It’s a pain because it’s always tough to find a space in this restaurant’s lot when it’s busy in the summer.”

Sorry cyclist

San Francisco, CA

He who wishes to protect his name says, “Sorry this is not the best picture – but this motorcycle was there all weekend and into the week killing us all in the lower haight, where parking is at a premium. It’s possible that this was a result of cars moving… but still, you would think they would move their bike – anyway, when you have to park 6 blocks from home who cares what the reason is! Its inexcusable and just plain bad parking!”

Poor sportsmanship

Springfield, VA

Banksy says, “Why is it that muscle-car and SUV owners seem to make up a disproportionate amount of bad parkers? Taken in a corporate parking lot.  The lot is next door to an indoor sports facility that doesn’t have enough parking.  In the evenings, the indoor soccer and volleyball players can park here, and I’m pretty sure the owner of this car was one of those athletes.  Not very sportsmanlike!”

A car kiss

Edina, MN

Lauren says, “This bizarre display was a few spaces away from my car when I left brunch on Sunday morning a few weeks ago. I desperately want to know the story behind this! I can only imagine the Honda parked first and the Mazda parked second.. but why? Their bumpers were literally touching, but there wasn’t any damage to the Honda. You can’t quite tell from the photos, but the Mazda looked like it had been in three or four *dozen* accidents.”

Maybe the cars are in love and sharing a kiss?
