They are going into a mall to walk around for 2 hours but won't walk an extra 100' to where there are lots of empty spots.

I always park way out in the distance where there isn't anyone, exercise never hurt anyone but without fail when I come back to the truck some clown is jammed right up next to it with tons of empty spots all around. You can't fix stupid.
The same stupidity I've seen at my gym. They're going to a place to work out but people will drive around looking for a close parking spot or even better, they park in areas where it's not a parking spot. These areas are right in front of the gym marked off as fire lanes. Yet, they'll park there because they don't want to do extra walking before they actually work out.

Strike a nerve from your credit card thread, eh?

ETA: If you're not so quick to be butt hurt about the other thread, you'd notice my location says DC.

I'm now a bit ashamed to admit it, but 25 years or so ago, I returned to my BMW to find that some moron had parked one of those early '70s Cadillac two-door coupes (with a separate ZIP code for each damn door) reeeally close to me. I keyed him.

I guess we all had that. Pic1: Middle of Home Depot parking lot, parked with nobody around. Found that 10 minutes later. Pic 2: parking at the bike trail. plenty of open space, yet the sweet spot is right there, next to the driver door.

On the other hand, it's a good thing I'm all the way over here on the Left Coast, lest you send me to my grave a bit earlier.

Yeah, Laura's gunning for me now. Fortunately, we NSAers also learned Jedi mind tricks. No, wait -- I didn't say that. I don't know anything about that. Nothing to see here.

How about being the victim of a hit and run while parked in my own driveway? My former loser roommate with a suspended license walked to a convenience store and an impaired guy offered him a ride home. That's when he dropped the loser off, hit my car and ran. Despite getting a picture of his (borrowed) vehicle and tag, State Farm kept my deductible and the arbitrator said my witness was not neutral.

That's outrageous -- did you cancel with State Farm?
