Bad Parking Etiquette in Kalamazoo
Sometimes the way people park makes no sense.
Yesterday afternoon I stopped in at Meijer to do my weekly grocery shopping. I picked a parking spot far of in the distance (I never mind walking). When I came out of the store this monster of a truck was parked WAY to close. In fact, in order to get into my car, I had to crawl across the front seat. If I had tried to open the drivers side door I would of put a ding in this persons truck. As you can see there are plenty of other places to park, and why so close to me?
I did my research and found that there are etiquette rules to parking! Here are a few rules that Thrillist.com has put into play in our parking lots.
- Do not park unevenly
- Do not block someone’s trunk or tailgate
- Do not park too close to someone
- Do not park across multiple spots
- Do not toss gum on the ground
So I did something I never thought I would do. I wrote a note and put it on the drivers side window. I am not sure it made any difference to the person who invaded my space, but I was angry and it made me feel better. Come on, I was wearing a dress, and let me tell you, watching me crawl across the car was not pretty.
