After some thought, it was more than obvious why the channel had decided to do an in-depth discussion on this -- and I say, it's about time!
So, without further ado, I present to you...
Skylar Kade's Rules for Not Parking Like a D-Bag!
1. If your car is double-wide (think an H2), DON'T take up a space and a half at the front of the lot. You chose the big-ass car, so you can walk the extra 40 feet from farther back.
2. If you have a nice car, congrats! I think you should be entitled to buffer spaces around it. Park diagonally in two spaces, by all means. But see Rule #1 -- don't take up two nice front slots to do it.3. Either pull through to the facing space, or don't, but going halfway is like saying you're "almost" a virgin: it didn't work in high school, and it doesn't work now.
4. If you park on the line, yes, you're still technically in your own space. But you make it awful hard for the other guy to not key... er, scrape... your car when he pulls in. If you're going to spoil the other space, either pull into the middle so as not to give the illusion of a full parking space, or stay WITHIN -- not ON -- the white lines.
5. If you don't have a COMPACT car, don't try to squeeze into the spot. I'm not even trying for metaphors on this one because, well, its just too easy. Freud would have a field day with the men who do this. They say guys with big trucks are compensating... I think it's them.
So, did I miss any? Or should I just throw up my hands with a cest la vie about it?
