And that must've made you wet your knickers and race home to post the photo on PH as soon as you could.

But you would do exactly the same if you owned such a valuable car. It's parked right at the back of the supermarket car park, there are lots of empty spaces around, so it's not an inconvenience to anyone.

I would draw the honourable gentlemen's attention to the thread title.
We have no idea from the photo what the rest of the CP is like. It could be chock a block.
Errrrr.....that's it.

Most considerate people wouldn't.

I, like most I presume, would reverse park it at the back of the car in a corner space as far over towards the kerb as possible.

If you're that precious over a car either dont buy it or take your other car down the shops.

I’m no expert on car parks, but that doesn’t look like a huge supermarket car park. It looks far more like a small m&s or Waitrose off a high street or in a built up area. I would wager there isn’t that much more to the car park than is shown in that photo.

Anyway, why come on a parking thread to criticise a parking post.

I have little doubt the DYL's are full of school-run-mental mums/dads picking up their insignificant others, if our station is anything to go by.

They recently redesigned the drop off area and put in big signs that say DROP OFF ONLY, NO WAITING, but that hasn't made any difference.

Then they added bollards along the kerb on the opposite side of the carriage way, to stop people parking on the kerb and bring all traffic to a standstill but they now sit in the exit lane of the car park with their ignition off trying to ignore the cars behind them queuing to get out.

Don't kid yourself that its a one off 'mistake' either. Its the same cars every night.

Wow, the sense of entitlement is so strong here. “I’m loaded so I’ll park how I like/look at my supercar folks...”.

And no Sebring440, I wouldn’t park like that if I had such a valuable car. I’d simply not take it to the shops.

Self-entitled tt.

Why even own a car like that if you do that when you take it out? It's a car ffs. It's not a precious oil painting that needs to be handled with extreme care.

Ironically, that sort of behaviour draws more attention and makes people want to make a point in return.

What that needed was someone in an old shed parking right up against it. hehe

Amazing, we get the odd roller, Bentley, plus some other upmarket cars in our Sainsbury's, they manage to park in ONE space.

There is a chap who owns the nightclub in my local town and he drives a Lambo. Always parks it on double yellow lines or in taxi spaces etc. Doesn't seem to give a st.

Or even better, he exits the CP, stops at a red light, immediately behind a tipper truck, whose driver inadvertently applies the tipping lever instead of the handbrake, depositing half a ton of hardcore on the red car’s bonnet biglaugh

There is a great scene in 'Breaking Bad' where Walter White tinkers with a car engine so that it explodes. The driver had been behaving like an absolute knob in a filling station shop.
