Have you ever noticed that when you park in the middle of a completely empty part of a huge car park, when you return, there is a cluster of cars all parked around yours, and usually leaving little or no space to open the doors as well... and the rest of the car park is still empty.

Richard, I can understand your displeasure. It must be a law of nature what Paul has mentioned. When I had just got the predecessor of my 75, I parked way down at the end of the car park, far away from the entrance and any other vehicle. After finishing my shopping I returned to my car, still no other car around. But some moron must have parked very close nearby, because there was a dent in one of the doors. :mad1:

I know Paul and Jürgen it's that I just wish some people would have the same respect for my car as I do for anybody else's.

Parked San's Rav4 at then then local Hospice, someone pulled up next to us and opened their door smartly into it. Now my wife takes no prisoners in such circumstances and immediately jumped out and confronted the said plonkers who denied their actions. Fortunately the Rav is somewhat urban proof in such situations and and they had simply caught the generous plastic strips so no damage - irrelevant. However the weren't bothered one iota. If it had been damaged I firmly believe their head would have been used to remove any dents.

We all work hard for our pride and joys; I do wish other people would have some semblance of respect for other people's property. I do. Hope the damage is not too bad Persuer and that it will polish out.

I might have posted this before but I left my car on the end bay completely alone and this is what I came back to find.
Bear in mind there are no cars in the next 8 bays to the left. It can only have been a deliberate cynical act as he had marked my door when he opened his.

I waited some time but as I was increasingly fuming, I thought it better to go, I didn't want a charge of assault against me.
I don't like signatures, they take up too much screen space.

Fat people tumbling out of 4x4's are the biggest problem. A, parking slots are not wide enough for them, B, they have to have the door fully open to pass through. So give 4x4's a miss, and any 2 door car as their doors are so much bigger they can reach half way into the next bay !

I beg to differ. Peoples size has nothing to do with them not giving a monkeys about other people and their property, nor their parking skills.

The last time somebody tried to damage my car in a car park I was actually sitting in my car.
Oldish couple pulled up in the nearside bay next to mine, I say oldish, not much older than me. I had fortunately swung into my spot and left my steering on full right lock. The person, and I use the term loosely, parked close enough to have done serious damage to my nearside door, however, he had parked in such a way that as he threw his door open it struck my front tyre, he tried several times to move my car out of his way with his door. Eventually realising (maybe) that it wasn't going to work and managed to squeeze himself out of his car and waddle off.
For a moment or two I thought he had damaged my car but realised what was happening before jumping out and smashing his car up with the hammer that resides in my boot.
Just goes to show what some cretins will do. rather than move to a spot or park sensibly where he could open his door, he was prepared to bash the car next to him several times, regardless of any consequences. Perhaps I should have disabled his car permanently, one less moron on the road.

I have a theory that it is all to do with two things:

1/ a field of magnetic influence drawing salletic (of satellites?) bodies to it in the
hope of gaining kudos/grandeur
2/ the paying of Homage to superior entities by 'clustering'.

They gather so closely so they rub against, with the intent of gathering some of the magic like worker bees around the queen.

You need to return to the car park with a bigger vehicle than your beloved 75/ZT and get your revenge

Something to remember though,
Use the opposite theory to Tescos when parking in Airport car parks.
In an airport car park, you park as close to other vehicles as poss. If you leave a large gap it will be used as a shortcut by people with a large bag with Zips on in each hand trying to get to the bus stop in a hurry. Result, scratches along the length of the car

Sorry and don't want to cause offense but surely it is hypocritical to park way out of your bay and then drip like a Chief Stoker that the next car has parked slightly out of theirs. (might be worth reading Matthew 7:3!)
