It's only the lowly peons who considerately ride their bike to work.

can't buy it now said...

No wonder the jackasses with the reserved spots close to the building are always so pissed...

Ha! Love the title.
I always love the "compact car only" spaces.

especially the "compact" spaces with 3 suvs or large trucks all next to each other.

A miata being able to take up 4 spots? I'd call that skilled parking. :P

counterpoint: Harley Davidson

wait you guys aren't important enough to take up more than 1 spot? I must be on the wrong website again...

A few weeks ago I returned to my parked Miata and there was a motorcycle sharing my (single) spot! I had to wait 45 minutes for the owner to return to his bike to be able to back out as he was directly behind my itsy-bitsy car.

I don't mind sharing parking spots, but now I leave the space in front of my car, so I won't be penned in should a biker need a slot to park.

haha. so true. for the 4th of july we went to a big event around here, so naturally after the fireworks were over there were tons of cars tries to get out of the parking lot. we had to wait around to get out. all the while, there's this miata in front of us with the top down, and he's just swearing at EVERYONE and pointing at people to get out of the way. He is going to die early.

Some of us take pride in our parking, so the graph goes the other way, but I admit we're in the minority.

I'm tempted to print a number of these and leave them on the windows of bad parkers everywhere...

Awesome. I linked to this post from my Bad Parking website. I think your assessment here explains many of the poor parking jobs I've displayed.

Heh you're a sharp tack!

Sarah, I think that's a great idea and possibly better than trying to find a scrap of paper in the glovebox for posting profanity.

Four spots, like on the Four Corners National Monument... a tire in each space?

We refer to them as either
I.Q. Zero parking jobs (for which we made up little "parking citations") or Graduates from the Big Boss (I won't use the name of the boss we use for the joke) School of Parking. He leaves his big butt Lincoln wherever the heck he stops it.

If you can't park it, if you can't drive it... leave it at home! Or the dealership. Seriously.

In contrast to your parking issue with the miata and the bike, I have had my SV650-k (suzuki street bike) boxed in by 2 cars in designated motorcycle areas.

When the police finaly arrived after owner now showing up for 30 minutes at this store, they towed both of them.

The owners were found 5 minutes later, having decided to not answer the pages on the PA at the store... both began yelling at the officer and getting in his face. The result was thier free ride to where thier cars went: the police station.

There are egos... then there are egos. Yelling at a cops face on how important you are is not going to help after you get towed. :)
