No photo but there was a current shape Ford Galaxy reverse-parked in the multi-storey this morning and they'd clearly left enough rear access to get a wheelchair out - the front was sticking out a good 4 feet!

Not in a wheelchair and not in the parking space! Shocking.

I wouldn't blame you!

I returned to the DS4 yesterday in a car park to see a shitty unwashed and unloved 3dr Corolla parked about a foot away (drivers side next to my car) and expected the worst but incredibly they hadn't even brushed the car - I could tell as it has a lovely layer of road grime on it which was untouched - a nice sigh of relief.

This car, (and its predecessor, which was a yellow version) is parked just like this in there 4 spaces every second Thursday - the only times I go in to this particular car park.

All the local Tesco's have re-instated their car parking rules recently, including the "park in marked bays" clause. Obviously, it's being well policed!!

But then they would be liable for charges.


Even better if the bikes still had the riders sat astride them. Burly as possible.

I don't think that the writer liked him, stressing as they did the car's second hand nature, his crappy job and using the word 'guzzle' in relation to economy.

I rather liked how they managed to inject such a patronising tone into the 'guzzling 50 of petrol money a week' caption.

I like the door bangers even less. I would also proffer that parking like that is only selfish if you are preventing someone else from parking i.e. if the carpark is full. If it is never full then you are not preventing anyone from parking, unless of course they are equally anal and will only park in that particular space.

Our cat likes the relative comfort of the fabric roof when it's on the drive. And she keeps the other cats away from it.  Tbh, it gets used more as a cat bed than a car at the moment.

*reading between the lines, I should probably clean the car more often...

The other guy in the article, the one in the white BMW, certainly doesn't.

I thought of this thread when watching the episode of Green Wing where Alan Statham parks his car by ramming it into a gap that it clearly way too small.

The little overflow car park I use when I go to the supermarket on the way to work had a flat bed Transit parked across three spaces tonight. So, driver of Sky Scaffolding Transit, you park like a cunt!
