No not my own (though If I dare say so myself, I'm bloody good   ) but I have a slight obsession with photographing parking.... Here's some of my faves from recent times....

I'll make this a sticky. Barryboys has a similar shit parking thread and some of them are priceless! I have a few to post up, I'll bang them on later when I have my computer handy.

Cool bananas.

People actually send them to me from their travels. Here's one from last weekend in South Wales (Porthcawl I think) This is why I want a Navara, for it's "park anywhere" abilty

When I come across cars parked with their drivers side one third over the next space I park in the space they are encroaching, with my passenger side adjacent to their drivers side. I ensure I don't overlap the next space to avoid the domino effect and retreat, hoping they will return to their vehicle before I do and have to consider their parking actions. Petty I know but it's very satisfying! I did it to a jap import people carrier last week and returned to see a big fat woman crawling over the front seats from the passenger side. I stood and watched from the other side of the car park.

I only do this in my work van for fear of recriminations to my paintwork. I actually now seek out opportunities to do this!

In some of the far eastern and middle eastern countries i used to work in it would be quite common to just park in the middle of the road,the best was one guy who decided to park his car a Mercedes in a space big enough for a smart car,his solution park it at a right angle so the bonnet faced the pavement and the boot stuck out in the road.

I do this sometimes but only if im in the fiesta.

My favorite which i have no doubt mentioned before was seeing Jennifer Ellison in the pub once, and outside, parked sideways across 2 disabled bays was a sparkling Range Rover.  Didnt take a genious to figure out who'se it was.

My Dad left his car up a bank like that Navarra has on Sunday...

...but in his defence, it was a very small woodland car park and when he came back, two others had parked beside him, narrowing the exit for a Range Rover and Shogun Sport.

I came across a 'brilliant' bit of parking this morning. It wasn't a car, though, but a (and I quote another person) stupid woman who chose to park her shopping trolley across the end of the magazines aisle in Morrisons, completely blocking the aisle, while she flicked through a newspaper. There wasn't even room to squeeze past either side. She suddenly realised that a number of people were waiting to exit/enter the aisle and got out of the way but not before the less than subtle comment of 'stupid woman' was uttered. In case anyone thinks I'm being sexist, the comment was made by another woman shopper.

I used to work at Asda when i was a young lad and one frequent annoyance when you were trying to move stock was when customers stopped to chat to each other in the main isle than ran down the centre of the shop.  Both with a trolley pointing oposite ways would totally block the isle for everyone.  As annoying as it may be for other customers who are sauntering round, its a million times worse when your trying to get your job done.

Something we have to put up with on a daily basis:



To the right of the picture is a Total Garage with shop, why take up one of our spaces when you can park across the entrance to all of them and when you talk to the person doing this they get the hump and all aggressive.

Happens all the time, there are regulars too.

Also just infront of the Hyundai to the right is the exit to the car wash. People pull out of the car wash straight into the four spaces and leather off their car, "I'll only be a minute" is the usual reply.

Or people who go supermarket shopping together (which is bad enough) but then walk around, each with their own trolley, side by side.

The first pic was taken in the Primera, the second in the Punto.

Bloody big fare, considering one was in Middlewich and the other in Swansea!

No less than 4 cars parked over ghe lines into the next space at the doctors this evening. They were not adjacent to each other either. I parked as close as I could to one, in order to sit in the centre of my chosen space

If I lived in gay Paree, I'd use the tube.  On both occasions I've been, the brutal contact parking would drive me nuts.  Anyone dinging the beast and fobbing me off with a gallic shrug would end up wearing his testicles as earrings.

Totally agree. I went to Paris on a school trip in 1997 and I just thought it looked dirty. there were a few places that looked respectable but most the streets were filthy. Maybe it's changed now.

With reference to my point in "Villains", the RS4 I've mentioned before who parks in our car-park, far closer than I would have liked ......



.... and the reasons.......



It's the Beetle on the far left who has parked almost on the white line (and yes, it IS a female driver!) which has caused a domino-style effect along the rest of the line. Incidentally, I was parked there before any of the others arrived!

See if I was the Astra driver I'd have parked facing in and used my space properly thus blocking the Beetles driver door so they can't get in. It's a point worth making.

+1, so close there is no physical way they can get in that door and have to climb over.

I parked up really close to someone on purpose, a while back.

They had reversed in to the left of our parking spaces but on the yellow box that is marked so no one can park there, we park there as it is only marked so no one else parks there as to not block in a car behind, but being staff we can park there.

I reversed in right up to the side of him with no space left for him to get into his car, to the right of my car there has to be enough space for a buggy to be able go down as it is also a walkway and I was only able to do that by parking right up close.

Anyway half an hour later this guy comes in all aggitated:

"Can I help you sir?"

"Some fucking idiot has parked right up close to my car and I can't get in"

"Oh, I do applogise I will find out which car it is and move it"

At this point I wasn't totally aware of where he was taliking about it but after a few questions is it was establised it was my car.

"Oh that fucking idiot would be me sir!" Was my reply, meanwhile my Manager was wetting himself with laughter in his office.

The guy was all of a sudden very polite and pleasant after that.

The beauty of having an old nail to run about in is that you can seek out people who have parked over the edge of their bay.  And then teach the mindless fuckers a lesson.

Someone is parked again over the road from work blocking in a Clio, I have seen the car before and it seems other have too as we popped into the hairdressers to ask if they knew who it belonged to and they have had problems with it blocking in their cars but has gone by the time the Police have arrived.

Ha ha, the Police are now here and issuing the Fiesta a ticket as it is causing an obstruction, take that you cock.

The bloke we had issues with in the past is fine with us now and accepts he was in the wrong, it seems his landlord, who is different from ours, gave him duff info.

*edit* they got an additional ticket for the broken rear light, ha fucking ha!

Just lost my rag with someone parked across the entrance of all our parking bays, I wanted to park a car that is for sale in the line up behind the parking bays.

It transpires that he was out of fuel but I was so pissed off as this was the third person today that had "dumped" their car there that I told him tough I wanted it moved now and then I sat in the car that I was in watching him push it out of the way by himself.

I felt a bit bad afterwards, only for a few minutes mind.

Fresh in from a mate... awaiting details of location (and of the health of the cyclist trapped underneath...)

From my usual Tesco hunting spot.


What makes this particular piece of parking great is that I watched the woman pull into the spot, reverse out, then pull in again. Then, she got out of the car to check all was well, deemed it perfectly good (as did her male companion), locked the car and walked off.
