I just feel better by sharing - parking skills

I didn't see this person "park"...but could not conceive of any rational excuse other than complete ignorance. 4 spots for such a small car first thing in the morning with clear lines. I had no words, just have to post for others to appreciate. Maybe if it had been a Range Rover

Looks like it was a big empty lot, not that it is an excuse but you could have probably easily parked else where.

This was just before the big mall opens, and all spots would be desired within a few minutes - especially these right by the food court doors. Plus, I was hauling 50lbs of hockey gear - not highly motivated to park further away today

Still - it wasn't like I was angry...just completely stunned how someone could leave their car like that and walk away.

GreekboyD, we must be almost neighbours - that is a 3 or 4 minute walk from my house.

Too funny man. You've probably seen my car around there for sure. Never parked, always driving through.

I wonder though...is it funnier if the chalk lines were made after the Toyoda parked there...or before?
