    I mean the ones that park literally like an inch from your door so they ding it when opening. This is despite the fact that there are numerous other open spots in the same lot with an abundance of room.

    Parking garages are the worst. I hate parking garages. I won't park next to a truck if I can help it.

    here's the solution:

    park in an end spot where there's no way a person can block your door. then grab a cart and leave it in the parking spot next to you so no one bothers parking there.

    you're welcome.

    Title should be: "Why don't women know how to park, much less operate a motor vehicle?"

    You have a utility truck for work and you have a car to run errands. You don't need a fucking truck to drive to the cheesecake factory.

    protip:

    on windy days, be sure to park far away from every other car. a sudden gust of wind will rip an unsuspecting persons car door out of their hand when they open it and it will smash into your car. :grad:

    I had a guy park the ass of his fat minivan crookedly in the end of my parking space when I was out the other day, and I'm brain damaged so I had to figure out how to get out of my parking space without hitting his car. I did it. I was proud.

    I have an original RAV4, from back when they were little. I look like I'm driving a roller skate next to the SUVs on the road!

    they did a study that determined that if someone is waiting for a parking spot, the person IN the spot takes longer to leave

    I learned that from my mom. We used to either get in the car and pretend to leave but never leave, or we would just walk right past our car and circle around after the person who wanted the spot left.
