LOL at this thread. I drive around looking for spots next to curbs most days so I can get as close to the curb as possible. Backing in with the guided camera makes it easy to get in the gutter. Fuck parking with open spots on either side.

This is my parking spot at work. Red pillars on either side.

Wait, are those fire hydrants on either side of your car?

Yes, and a bunch of letters painted on the asphalt that spell - "NO PARKING"...

This is not a random parking lot. This is at my work where everyone knows everyone ad if anyone has a half way decent car everyone knows what it is.

That particular no parking spot is sweet because the red hydrant on the left is permanently shut off and the yellow city hydrant is closer to the actual parking spot and faces away from my car.

So no worries about it getting towed or the hydrants. Nor am I always parked there. Pretty much Thursday and Friday for sure, thats when we are packed. And its only after lunch mid day.

Otherwise I park in single file parking spots. Most people fill those last and even then they wont door ding me. They'd have to rear end my car. :/

But damn; Id have to say parking at work is the worst. There 5 days a week 8-10 hours a day. Shit is bound to happen.
Plus, the customers we get tend to be on the prissy rich side of this valley. They'll door ding your car and say "hahaha oops. Guess Im in a hurry?"

I was able to get the same spot that my fiancee's Hyundai got a few posts above.



And when I wasn't able to get that spot the next time I visited that shopping center, the one behind it was huge too!

The Infiniti's getting body work done so I'm in my dad's truck for the time being. Decided to go to the mall on Monday but it stuck too far out in a regular spot. Then I found this one.

I signed up for this new gym last month. Best decision I've made this year by far:



Believe it or not, this is the closest spot to the door!

Customer site finally had the parking lot paved instead of just being gravel.
