Yep, that'll do - I even saw her look back at it as she waddled off...

Carpark was pretty much empty too

Whilst it may be way over from being completely in the space it's not actually taking up 2 spots is it. I regularly will try and find the end spaces so I can get right over away from the car next to me.

It's actually extending into an access lane, not another space - note the ( faded ) give way stripes

Very busy Sainsbury's today Garthdee, usual spate of don't care I will park where I like, unfortunately although a private company look after the car park, apart from clocking vehicles in and out, never ever seen a warden there, not that an invoice carries much weight north of the border.



Nice old Merc though.
Years ago I drove a colleague's '96 S class to the NEC Metropole hotel for the classic show. Parked in a space but there was not enough room to open the doors so we could get out. Only solution was to park centrally across 2 spaces.

Designers of car parks need to make the spaces larger!! Most cars are larger now than they were 20 years ago - Fiesta, Golf, Polo, etc.

I suppose people could make a similar comment about aircraft seats...

They will carry some weight after next year. Keeper liability was passed in the recent transport bill.

I’m reading a hint of self entitlement and more than a dash of laziness, that story.

99.9% would’ve found an end space and/or let the passenger out first.

Bridleway crossing a road. Poochie Mummas dog walking services making it more difficult than it should be.

Maybe the spaces in your Sainsbury car park are larger. Bentley owner possibly makes life difficult for cars beside him/her.
As to finding an end space, obviously you've never been to the NEC hotel. Any empty space is like hen's teeth.
I suggest you look at the relevant S class. The doors are very thick and have to be opened several inches before there is a gap to put a piece of paper through, let alone a person.
It wasn't my car and I wouldn't want it due to this problem.

Its not really an excuse though is it. Its your responsibility to find a suitable space to park your car, if it won't fit then you don't park.

You park like a show no remorse, don’t have any real excuse and feel like a victim?

Get the fk over yourself and grow up.
