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
Must admit I have a tad of understanding.

I had a pristine boxster a good few years ago and after only a few months the doors and wings were peppered with supermarket carpark dents. Took off around a grand of its value at resale.

When I bought the AM i used to park as far away as possible from 'couldnt care less brigade'.

And then I went online for everything and never have to place my current P&J, which took a lot of sacrifice and saving, in jeopardy.

Perhaps if people owned an expensive car they might feel differently ?

Nice car BTW !

So do you think your distress was more than someone on a low wage who has stretched themselves to a brand new fiesta?

Amazing, we get the odd roller, Bentley, plus some other upmarket cars in our Sainsbury's, they manage to park in ONE space.
Proof, that you don't have to be a Brad-Tard to have an nice car AND park like a knob.

I park thoughtfully and sensibly but have never had any damage on any of my cars.

Not at all.

For someone on a low wage a brand new fiesta is expensive.

I am saying that if someone wants to protect their P&J - something they have stretched for, whatever its value, then they should avoid parking with those who do not give a t*ss.

I hope that helps

I've seen this selfish fker a few times at a Tescos near me, so I actually suspect that they might work there. It's always parked over two bays, which is weird as it's just a generic white goods diesel Golf with fake smaller GTI wheels.

Consistent I'll give them that

As you say, if someone takes a pride in their cars appearance, then it doesn't matter how much it costs. I've seen very expensive cars parked equally as badly as old bangers.

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.
As long as all they can do is fine him, he is probably not worried about paying the fine. Until his car is lifted biggrin

Some arrogant fekker in Glasgow does the same with his roller, parks on DYL's outside where he works, apparantly the recovery trucks cant lift it, too heavy, he just keeps paying the fine.

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.

And most of the comments haven't gone how he'd hope, either!

He would be pi££ed off to come back to his car minus an offside mirror.

I for one wouldn't even think of leaving my car that far from the kerb.

Personally, I'd park right next to the drivers door. This would make me guilty of bad parking too of course..

I'd watch from a distance then move it of course.

Reminds me of an occasion some time ago, when my wife, who is a really, really, good driver, making most guys look like rank amateurs, reversed into a parking spot just north of Oxford Street, in London’s West End.
It had been just a tad tight, but she’d managed it, like the expert that she is, and she said to me, “Is that okay ?”
I opened my door, nearest to the kerb, and saw that there was maybe a 15cm gap, I said “That’s fine, I can walk to the kerb from here.”
She went ballistic!

With your career the above edited would have been more apt.

Nearly 6 inches, hmmmmmmmmm.......... maybe why biggrin

The guy with the Lambo, just read the rest of the article, an obstruction on the pavement so he couldnt park any closer, explains it all, can't park so don't drive, easy.
