Honestly people!!

What is it with this stuff? Once again, we have a truck parked across 3 parking spaces. This is in a McDonald's parking lot during lunch rush. This particular Mickey D's parking lot is not big at all. Because of its location, the outer perimeter parking is very limited. There is a huge parking lot right behind McD's because of a shopping center located there. God forbid that he might have to walk 25 yards to the door. This guy has got to be related to the COTA driver. My apologies for the crappy picture; I had to take it in a hurry.

Once again...

We have a driver who apparently does not realize that the lines go the other way. Yes I know this is a truck, but he could have easily backed into one of those spaces instead of being across 3 spaces. My guess is that the driver of this truck is related to this COTA Driver in some way.

Need diesel?

You won't be getting it anytime soon here. Well, at least that was the case when I was at the gas station. I am not sure what to say to this. I guess if you need fuel bad enough, it's right to block everyone else in? On top of blocking everyone while he was fueling the truck, after he was done, the truck would not start. You can see the hood up in the second picture. I don't know how long he was sitting there.

I can't even say anything about this.

This one is just self-explanatory. I saw this guy pull in and park like that. I grabbed my camera and took the picture, then just as I was about to leave, I had to grab my camera again.

The church

I actually witnessed this. I could not believe it. She has NO handicapped tag or handicapped license plate. She hopped right out of the jeep and walked away. Besides the fact that she is in the handicapped spot, she is on the sidewalk also. This was at a church. My apologies for the blurry picture.

Wally World

What we have here are a few cars in Wal-Mart's parking lot. These are just a few examples of how parking is EVERYDAY at Wally world. I could roam the parking lot all day long and have 2 pages worth of posts.

How about this one

Here is an example of what happens when one person doesn't park right. It's a chain effect. This was taken in a parking lot of an office building that has some government offices in it. Lovely Eh?

The black pickup truck parked almost on the line, therefore the red car's driver obviously did not want to get close to the truck so he/she decided that they would park a little farther over, screwing everyone else up in the process. Of course the smart thing would have been not to try to park next to the red car in the first place and just skip to the next spot. Apparently some people aren't smart enough to have that kind of common sense.

Lunch hour at McDonald's

This is a beautiful example of how not to park a city bus. My dad was at lunch when this happened. The driver pulled in and parked across 3 parking spaces. As you can see from the picture, 2 of those spaces are handicapped. The driver was only in McDonald's for 7 minutes but the fact still remains that he is parked across 3 spaces. A complaint was made to COTA and they said that they "counseled" the driver.

This is a Project Mainstream bus. This particular bus is for HANDICAPPED people. More information on that HERE

Lunch ended with this.

Here is my first bad parking post.

Went to lunch with my parents on Feb. 23rd at a great "Chinese" buffet. Came out to this. Parents vehicle is on the left. You can't tell from the picture but the way the red truck is parked, the passenger door cannot be opened enough for anyone to get in because it would hit the mirror on the red truck.

Bad Parking Around Town

So, I have created this blog to share my experiences with people that have no idea how to park a car. I mean the people who drive the littlest cars and take up 2 spaces. The people who feel the need to park on or over the yellow line. The people that drive huge trucks and feel the need to try and squeeze into a parking space because its the closest to the entrance, holding up traffic for 20 minutes while they're doing a 30 point turn. Even the people that hold up traffic in the parking lot because someone is leaving in an hour. (Exaggeration, I know)

Every time I venture out, I carry my camera with me so chances are this page will be updated regularly. I realize that there are a lot more important problems in this world (and I could go on and on and on about them, too), but this one is a simple one that can be documented and fixed if everyone would get some common sense.

I will start accepting submissions later on. More information on that when it comes about.
