Yeah, but it was a topless Mustang, and you took a few minutes rest on that center console. So what's the big deal?

This was right in front of my store last week. Our new neighbors, a salon, have complained about our customers parking in the lot and then going for a bike ride. This woman left her car like this for at least two hours while getting her hair done. At least our customers aren't doing property damage.

People like that make me wish I owned a car like this one so I could just pull up right next to him. Like within an inch.

The Oldsmobile Omega was my first car and it was exactly this color (interior was burgundy tho), and on many a day I wish I still had it LOL

If you can't tell what the other car is it's an SL55 AMG

I posted a picture (that I took this morning) of co worker's car with a boat trailer taking up 5 parking spots. Had to take it down for privacy reason.

Im not sure a trailer counts in this case, unless they park right up at the building.

Some a$$hat backed into me with a trailer hitch receiver last week, trying to parallel park his ginormous pickup. There must have been 30 feet in front of him. Left a nice gouge in the bumper. Guy acted like nothing happened. A quick thinking friend got a camera photo of his plate/hitch and my bumper. That pissed him off.

From earlier.

Gotta love the person who has NO awareness of the front-end of their vehicle




But even worse, the guy beside him thought it looked like a good idea and followed suit
