Parking Lot Rules For Last Minute Christmas Shoppers
Unfortunately, I’ve seen way too many people following these rules …
- When waiting for a parking spot, stop in the middle of the road, don’t signal, and orient your car diagonally to prevent others from passing.
- Always park on the lines, taking up as many spots as possible. Diagonal parking is preferred.
- In a crowded parking lot, if you find a spot and have the opportunity to pull through to an adjacent one, drive up half way and stop on the line, taking both.
- As you pull into a spot, if you see that the space ahead of you is empty and you see another driver signaling to take it, pull through and take it from him.
- Always park close enough to the adjacent car so that the other driver must grease up with Vaseline to squeeze into his/her car.
- When getting out of your car, hit the adjacent vehicle with your door really hard.
- When driving through the parking lot, ignore the painted lanes and drive diagonally from one end to another at a high rate of speed.
- When stopped in front of a store and waiting for a friend/ relative to make a purchase, make sure that you are stopped in the middle of the road. The same rules applies to picking-up and discharging passengers.
- When a vehicle from the opposite direction is signaling and waiting for a parking space, position your car so that you are in his way and let the car behind you take it.
