Angry Need to Vent

Not sure where to place this but here it goes.....Why do folks park so close to my truck when I park out away from folks in the parking lots?.....It seems some people who don't care about their vehicle want to ruin it for others.....I park out aways cause for 1. She is a big girl... 2. I like to keep her little clean everyone now and again if there are dents or scratches I want them to come from me and not someone else cause they don't give a crap......How many of you all have gone thru this crap?

This happens to me all the time. I even tell my wife to watch how many cars will be parked around us when we get back out to the truck. Open parking all over the place and they come park by me out in the back 40 parking. WTF...

I'm right there with you guys. I also work in an office building where the parking spots were designed for Priuses. Getting in and out of the truck is a challenge let alone getting into the parking spot. It's really bad when I get boxed in... My wife doesn't want to be anywhere near me when that happens!

I also HATE when that happens to me

Whenever I drive into a parking lot i look around and choose the spot NOT near anyone thinking about the other people/cars actually. Because I feel like if I want the respect then others deserve it too.


But then I come out and some idiot parked RIGHT next to me when there are a BUNCH more empty spots around with nobody around..



Shawn: I know EXACTLY what you mean about the last part

My wife just lets me be alone to "let out" all the anger...on whomever it may be



She hates that about me.. I don't blame her... sometimes I take it overboard









Back to topic... I HATE PEOPLE LIKE THAT!!!!!!

I have really thought about it as well, but you KNOW what would happen... They would bump or dent your truck!

Yea this is why I drive the Expo with the family don't need my son picking up some terms that could get him in trouble......And do you notice when you are hauling something in the truck bed people seem to follow a little closer.....On a couple of times I have notice this maybe it's just me.

Yea if tuned could do that I have also noticed folks who have aftermarket lights on the bumpers maybe should install those so when get to close they pop on then I don't want to blind anyone either.....

My wife was with me once when I had parked 'away' from the population only to come out to find we had some 'neighbors' move in while we were inside. I started looking around the truck. Pam asked me what I was looking for. I said, "Somebody must have stole the sign that said "Come park over here!"" She just shook her head and said, "Open the door will ya?
