After dinner

Canton, GA

Noora says, “We had just gotten into our car after dinner, when this guy pulled up next to us. The rear right corner is also over the line on the other side.”

A la France

Northern France

Gräfin says, “I took this last November at a motel (the Val Moret) we stay at in Northern France; it’s just off the A5 motorway between Champagne and Burgundy. Our car is the red car in the foreground, and when we went to bed there were no other cars in the car park. When we went for breakfast, this was what we saw!

I think it’s bad parking because:
a) the car on the right has made it difficult/impossible for the silver car to get out, and/or
b) I suspect he got to be parked like this because he forgot to apply the handbrake!

We’ve stayed at this place lots of times, and always cars park as close to the rooms as it gets really cold/wet in winter. It’s a part of rural France where it’s still not unusual to go into a bar in the morning and;see one or two old boys starting their day with red wine or cognac, but this place is mainly used by business travellers or holiday makers breaking their journey to/from the South of France; but perhaps he had been on a champagne tasting.”

Please be careful around my bad parking

Milwaukee, WI

Nomes says, “Two days in a row I was late for work because I was parked in by this guy. Oh, he left a note saying ‘Please be careful when you move your car.’ You can see it placed nicely on my windshield. I guess he didn’t want me to hit him while trying to leave? They have since given him a different spot to park in.”

Las Vegas, NV

Geek says, “This is in the entrance to the DMV. Busy day but plenty of available parking. But I guess this guy didn’t want to walk the extra ten steps.”

Marina Del Rey, CA

Kyle says, “Went to a soul food restaurant in a strip mall and saw this gem. I’d just gotten a Blackberry so this magical moment popped my camera’s cherry. No activity around the car; my friends unanimously hypothesized that marijuana may have been involved.”

Ann Arbor, MI

Susan says, “These were taken in a mall parking lot. The spots are all angled in one direction. Apparently the driver didn’t pay attention to how far up they needed to park. Either that or they were doing it on purpose. They had an Ohio license plate. My husband stepped into the first picture to show how much room the driver had. No one else around them was parked like an ass- just them. Stupid Ohio drivers.”

Jerk v. Mom

Westwood, CA

Nanette says, “This jerk on the left parked way too close to my mom’s car. I had to crawl through the passenger seat to get to the driver’s seat.”

Sydney, Australia

Adam took this in a crowded parking garage at lunchtime. He says, “There was a woman hovering while I took the photo…maybe feeling the guilt and not willing to fess up. Named and shamed!”
