I thought you might enjoy this.

Yeah, it drives me nuts. There is this crazy lady who's car always hangs out about 3-4 feet past where it should be and it makes it a huge pain in the ass for everyone to park, since our parking garage is so tight.

She also likes to take naps in her car and leave the engine running so our entire garage smells like Carbon Monoxide.

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

Sounds like there's a good chance Darwin may sort her out for you.

You must have a pretty good nose, seeing as CO is odorless.

Thanks for the link. I downloaded the pdf and will use it. We had assigned parking spots where I used to live, and the lane they were in was also a fire lane. The woman who lived behind my parking spot used to leave her car parked in the lane, which made it very difficult to get out of my spot. I talked to her about it several times, which did no good. So I went to the townhome complex manager, and she gave me some nice bright red stickers to put on the woman's car, which said the car was illegaly parked. I put the first one on the side window, and only peeled about half of it off, so it wouldn't be a bitch to get the other half off. The second one, I put on the windshield, right in the driver's line of sight. She had to scrape that off with a razor, and she quit parking there for a while. For some reason, she started again a few months later, so I called the local police and told them she was parked in a fire lane; they sent a cruiser out about an hour later, and her car was still there, so they gave her a $150 ticket! She never did it again!
Why is there always money for war, but none for education?

There is a guy who parks his car (nissan SUV) in the middle of two spots every single day in the parking garage I park in.

Every time I see him he is in the same spot in the middle of two spots.
I guess he doesn't want anyone to hit him with their door, but that's no excuse to be a dick. He could drive to the top floor where it's hardly ever busy.

I find it shocking how little some people care.

The proper response to that is to park about 6 inches from his drivers side door.

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

What does those things to do the finish? Why ruin someone's paint job for a lousy parking spot?

Maybe I've been beaten down by the man, but honestly there are more important things to get upset about. Yeah people who take are two spots are inconsiderate and selfish but its not worth my time and effort to give them any more thought.

Eh, bad parking should be met with super shame. Mean notes. Unhappy stickers.
