I pull up to a parking lot in Thousand Oaks, California, realizing that the space in front of me is one of the few that's empty.
The parking lot is mad with wandering cars, looking for a place to rest.
I take another look at the spot and realize WHY it's empty - the scuzz-bag who parked next to it parked way over the lines. As if anybody is really seeking to scratch the car door of an ugly, dirty, 90's SUV.
Anybody driving a car any bigger than your standard Hot Wheels would have to just keep on driving.
WTF is so hard about parking, looking around, seeing that your car is NOT parallel to the ones next to you, putting your damn car in reverse, backing up, straightening your damn self, and parking like a nice, normal person? It shouldn't take longer than 15 seconds, and other people will have the privilege of parking next to your hunk of junk.
Once, I witnessed a car driving about 40 MPH in the parking lot and then parking at an obvious angle, taking up two spaces. The girl driving (couldn't have been more than 19 years old) got out and began walking away, completely oblivious about what she'd just done. One of her friends had to point it out to her. Her reaction? She simply laughed and kept on walking. Nice, huh?
There is a reason why the speed limit for parking lots are usually no more than 15 MPH. There could be a pedestrian. A car could be just about to pull out of their parking space. Et cetera.
And...if you see that you don't know how the hell to park, why don't you FIX the damn thing?
Who's giving the behind-the-wheel driving tests at the California DMVs? If you don't know how to drive and park correctly, you shouldn't have a license. It's pretty damn simple.
Seriously, people - I need one of these installed on the hood of my car.
