Parking Lot Pig

Since I'm not really into sports, it didn't twig on me that probably the last thing I would want to do is go shopping on Super Bowl Sunday. But, I pull into the lot and see wall to wall cars. Found several empty spaces in the last row that was about the farthest one could get from the front door. That's why they are always empty. You don't expect people to walk an extra 30 feet now, do you? I parked my car all by it's lonesome self, with several empty spaces on each side and walked to the door. When I came out, I found this pig over the line into my space. There was no need for this, there were plenty of other spaces. If one is going to drive such a large vehicle, they should learn how to park it. The doors on my little car are actually quite long and need some space to open. I was able to get into my car, fortunately for the person in the truck. It was a bit of a squeeze and I had to contort to get in and pull my feet in. The other option was to climb in on the passenger side and then attempt to crawl over the stick shift and center console. And no, I didn't put my door into hers. I had to fight temptation to run a key along the paint, though. I park out in the boondocks to avoid this shit.

I'd have published his reg. number. I also carry a marker and stickums for such occasions, and leave a little note on thier windshield sugesting perhaps they should take a course in how to park a truck.

I actually did take a picture of her license plate. I didn't even think about posting it. I took it down just in case I found any damage from the passenger door on my car. I'm going to have to start carrying a marker and "Post-It-Notes", so I can complain about their lame ass attempts at parking.
