At the local now-dead mall, one Christmastide, I made runs back and forth to the car while shopping. One lady followed me, ready to turn into my what-she-thought 'empty spot'. When I closed the trunk and headed back to the mall, she let me know she was extremely unhappy in very colorful metaphors.

I don't think subby read the article, and the person who wrote the article mixed up "road rage" with "parking lot rage".

I had parking lot rage once.

I parked, right int he middle of the lines, at a restaurant.  Nobody next to me.  I come out and on the drivers side there was an SUV about 2 inches from the drivers side door.  the person on their other side was parked normally.  I climbed in the passenger side, got in my car and backed out with my house key jammed as hard as I could into the side of their car.

Wait, is it rage if I still think it is completely justified?

seelorq: Rufus Lee King: This reminds me: I always park at the back of the lot, away from all the nuts. Every time I come back out, someone is always parked three inches off my door handle, with dozens of other empty spaces around. Can anyone explain this?

Np, but this happens to me all the time, too; it vexes me to no end. 9 out of 10 of those times, its a farking suv parked right next to my small car. And because I can actually center my vehicle in the spot, and they are too lazy to think, they usually park way off-center...yep, three inches off my door handle. Somehow, they never manage to park off-center the other way.

/vexed


It's probably that they use your car as a guide. With nothing on the other side they don't know where the bay is so they pull in close to you. I doubt it's deliberate. My wife does it all the time, I'm forever telling her to pull out and go back in again a little further over.

I always do this when A-holes park their expensive cars sideways across two spaces.  I just park sideways next to them real close like with my piece of shiat car.

Minarets: Tobin_Lam: I always walk down the next aisle over, taking my time, and then I cut through the parked cars to my car on the other side. One guy was so desperate to get my spot that he actually offered to drive me to my car. I should have taken him up on the offer and when I sat down screamed,"GET OUT OF MY farkING CAR! Thanks for the ride, biatch." as I drove off in his car.

This is my favorite game during Christmas season at the mall here.  Upon leaving and seeing a full parking lot, I'll start down one isle and try to draw in a tail, then cut over 1-2 rows to where my car is actually parked.


I did this all the time in grad school. Why do people imagine it isn't rude and extremely creepy and unnerving to stalk a pedestrian in a 2000 lb vehicle ten feet behind them? Drive to the back of the lot. If the whole lot is full, drive in circles or go somewhere else. NEVER EVER STALK A PEDESTRIAN IN A CAR. NOT EVEN ONCE.

Wow, most of you are more idiotic than usual today. How about reading the article? It's not about someone waiting for a parking space, it's about this dipshart woman jawjacking on her phone and not realizing she cut off some guy who the followed her into the parking lot to ask her WTF? She mouthed off to him, then walked in front of his car, flipping him the bird and when he yelled back, her feeble mind was so confused, that she tripped, swallowed her gum, screwed up her text and landed on his hood. That's when the poor guy realized that he was screwed because this dumb bimbo showed all the signs of crazy, so he hauled ass.
The End.

Basily Gourt: I'm a bit of a dick, and one of my favorite things to do at the mall when it's crowded is to let some idiot follow me in his car as I walk back to mine, hoping to get my space. I'll intentionally walk 2 rows over from where my car is, go far past where I've parked, and then cut over and start walking back up towards my car.

The looks on their faces is a thing of beauty.


At least you admit you're a dick - I can respect that.

Don't be a dick though, it takes more energy than being nice.
 
2013-04-18 08:06:15 AM  
I've actually never seen any parking space stalkers here, not the kind that follow you around as you're walking back to your car.  Most people here just seem to endlessly circle the lot until someone leaves, so they can get that spot 20 feet closer.

I did sort of have some parking lot rage directed at me recently, though, from a cop.  I walked to a doctor's office for an appointment on a nice sunny day, and while I was in there, the neighborhood apparently begin to set up for a high school sports tournament that was coming to the arena across the street.  When I came out of the appointment, there were cops everywhere, making sure people parked in the pay lots if they were going to be attending the tournament, and not the lots for other businesses.  As I walked through the parking lot and left the premises, a fat slob of a cop sitting in her car turned on her siren and yelled out the window, "Stop right there, sir!"  I didn't figure she could be talking to me, so I kept walking.  She began screaming some more, so I turned around and she asked, "Are you going to the tournament?"  I said I wasn't, and she said "Uh huh.  I think you are.  If you're parked here for the tournament, we'll tow your car."  I told her I wasn't parked anywhere and that I was headed home.  She replied, "Well, I saw what car you came from.  I'm calling in to get it towed."  I said, "Fine, tow my car," and walked on.  I wonder if they towed anyone's car.

When I used to own a 20 year old beat up dodge pickup and id see Porsches or ferraris parked way in back 50 spots from anything I'd park right next to them, as close as possible while still being in the lines, and carefully get out :) it's called trolling.

If youre one of those farkwads that parks your Mercedes across 3 spots when the rest of the lot is full, it could be called "keying". But I can neither confirm not deny that nomenclature.

I thought it was called being an arrogant ass thinking your shiny car was important enough to warrant using 3 spaces.

No, it's parking lot justice. You can drive a farking Lambo and, if it's parked correctly, I'll admire and move on. Park it like you're something special, using up 2 or more spaces, you are farking asking for it to be keyed.

I get this all the time.  50 isn't that bad, but the elderly HATE having to walk.  You get them stalking you with their cars as you come out of the Publix's, instead of just minding their own business and finding their own spot.  There is almost always a normal parking spot just a few feet away.  The effort involved just does not make any sense.  If I don't have anything else going on, I'll sit in the air conditioned car and check facebook until they lose patience and go find a normal spot.  I don't like to reward bad behaviour.
 
2013-04-18 08:35:13 AM  
There's no such thing as "road rage" or "parking lot rage" or "air rage" or any of that other crap. Immature manchildren who throw their toys when they don't get their way are having a temper tantrum. This behaviour doesn't get a special name based on where these jerks choose to lose their shiat.
 
2013-04-18 08:39:45 AM  
When I'm walking through a crowded parking lot like that I always take my keys out and hold them conspicuously in my hand.  Love the look on someones face after they creep behind me in their car only to see me pocket my keys and walk into the store.

you drive around tailing someone hoping to get their spot

When she was at university, my missus used to lurk in her car at the "buildings and classrooms end" of student parking. There, she would proceed to OFFER COMPLETE STRANGERS LIFTS TO THEIR FARKING CARS so she could get dibs on their spot! Jesus, now that's taking it to the next level.

Even the biggest student car parks weren't that big, either. She would have saved them rock-all time, so unless someone was carrying a crapload of heavy stuff I reckon most takers would have done it out of pity for the pathetic wretch before them. Meh, who knows? Maybe most of 'em took up the offer for a laugh. Erm. Coz young people are sociable and they like having laughs.

Stake out a claim and wait. That was my method. Every time, no arguments.

It was always funny to watch a driver doing the "trailing" method, and the student on foot is slowly coming closer and closer and *closer* to me. Slowly walking past 50 or more cars while the driver slowly trails along. It can look quite sinister at times.

i50.tinypic.com

And just as the student on foot gets up real close, I see that glorious "reaching into their backpack for the keys" moment. It's all mine! Claim stakers always have rank over trailers, doesn't matter if they've been trailing them in the car park for half a mile. At least they do in my play book, I always show a bit of "intent" just to be sure the other driver gets the message to take a farking hike. Indicator on, creep forward 6 inches. Nothing too rude.

I was constantly pulling rank on trailing-method drivers over close calls, plus I got heaps of parking spots while all the trailers were trailing somewhere else. I couldn't see the trailing method getting any more than their fare share of parking spots.

Sitting in your car and chilling, waiting for a spot to become available. Why add extra bother and stress to your life by stalking human prey? No thanks.

And trailing looks so bloody UNDIGNIFIED. And, aaand.... it's creepy and rude. It used to irk me if a car latched on to my ass as I walked back to my car. I always took routes between cars rather than marked out pedestrian trails to avoid it as much as possible Get up in my business in your car? I'll drop you in 5 seconds.

Can you tell I've thought this thru?

I troll people in parking lots. The last time I went to Dave & Busters Orlando I had this guy in a landboat following me after I left with one of my friends, just waiting for me to get into my car so I could give up prime real-estate. I've always hated seeing people wait for minutes at a time just to park a few feet closer. I threw the guy off by walking on one side of the lot, then switching to the other side. When he figured out that I had finally "found" my car, he floored it through the lot just to sit and wait for me to pull out. My friend and I just sat in the car and messed with our phones for 10 minutes while this guy blocked up traffic waiting to get into my spot.

In 15 minutes, he could've already been inside D&B if he didn't feel like walking was a monumental challenge.

Especially when I was walking or cycling home.


If some douchebag follows me to my car, I always get into my car for a second, then get out acting like I forgot something and head back to the store.  What I especially love is seeing them speed off all angrily and seeing someone right behind them also looking for a space.  I'll wave them in.

There are lots of types of assholes in the world, but people who follow me to my car are pretty high on the list.

So here's a question: who is worse, the people who will willingly hold up traffic for 15 minutes because they can't be arsed to walk an extra 50 ft, or the person in the following situation... You're turning down a row and see a car with reverse lights on that is slowly starting to back out of its spot.  You stop to let them out because A. it's considerate, and backing out can be stressful especially if you come out to find your car is in a valley between two land cruisers that parked on either side of you so you have zero visibility, and B. fresh parking spot!  While you're waiting another car pulls up from the other direction, and the exact moment the backing up car is clear, the new car darts into the spot.

The second person is worse in my book.  Not only are they too lazy to walk, but they are willing to look you in the face, fully acknowledge that you were going to pull into the spot, and then take it anyway.

Seems he does this crap even if someone is directly in the center of their spot.  He is definitely not the only one either.  Boo hoo someone has nicer stuff than me and is using a spot nobody else wants so I have to walk less.

I had a dentists appointment one day, and I pulled into their parking lot. The only other car there was a black Mustang, so I parked one space over (so there was a space between us) and went in. When I came out there was a nice long dent in my rear quarter from some idiot who tried to park between us. Again, the rest of the parking lot was empty. Pisses me off to this day, my Trans Am was in really nice condition.

Oh, okay yeah, in that case it's just being an asshole.  If I see someone with a nice car parked at the end of a row, I might go park near them, but only because I feel the same way, and I'll leave them plenty of door space because I know they want to avoid scratching their car just as much as I do mine.

I'm with the maximum trollers.   I work in an office building attached to a mall, so we park in the parking lot.  Since we come in earlier than the mall opens, we get prime spots.

Thing is, the mall is always half empty (it's a shiatty mall) but almost every day there'll be a stalker following me out even though there's plenty of spots 2 or 3 cars down.

Depending on how much in a hurry I am, I will go down two three rows, cut back over, lead them on.   Sometimes, I'll just go to my car and sit and glare at them til they move on.  It usually doesn't take long.

For bonus suckage, there seems to be an excess of mental retards who stalk, then pull almost in front of the spot they are waiting for such that you can't pull out.   They're actually blocking the spot they want, then get mad when you don't pull out (what? you want I should drive over your POS?).

Seriously..what's the difference if you park in the first 2 spots or the 3rd or fourth?  I mean we're talking 15 feet!

RatMaster999: My university has limited staff parking.  I have a 20 space lot close to where I work, but from 7am-6pm it's pay per hour for visitors.  If I get there at 5:45 or so, I can usually find a space, but starting at 6pm, it's available to anyone for free, so students usually swarm on it.  The next closest is 8-12 spaces, depending on the size of the cars and the douchebaggery of the drivers, since it has no lines painted.  Staff only 7am-6pm, but VERY popular.  From there, my next options are a good 1/4 mile away (as the crow flies), and from there I start looking about a mile away.

No, buses aren't an option.  I could take one to get in, either leaving for work 4 hours early, or 2 hours early, hope the bus I get on is 15 minutes early and the connecting one is 10 minutes late...and none of them run by the time I'm leaving.  15 miles each way kinda rules out cycling to work, at least until I get into better shape, but I ain't doing that in the snow.

in my case, I absolutely love college students who fail to notice that there would never be any possible way that I could get into the space on the other side of the truck since their car is too close in the opposite side of the parking lot.  So I would have moved on and let them have it.

It's amusing to see and hear his girlfriend cuss him out for almost wrecking because he took a fast left into said space as I was heading forward at 8 miles an hour. Almost resulting in my bumper getting close and personal with her lap.

fredklein: Satan's Bunny Slippers: Mark Ratner: I ride a bike and park it at the bike rack way up front, under the cover of the overhang roof. It's pretty sweet not having to walk 80 ft in the rain because I had to park my gas guzzling SUV.

I know this is a semi-troll, but try riding your bike, buying a week's worth of groceries, 40lbs of cat litter, 50 lbs of dog food, etc and strap it on to your sweet bike and go on home.

:-)

Solution: Don't have a cat, don't have a dog, and buy your groceries only a few days at a time.


No thank you, I'll enjoy a nice regular life.  Filled with things I enjoy.  Which does not include living at bare minimums because I feel the need to snipe self importantly at those who choose to drive.  But you're welcome to.

And further, all of that notwithstanding, biking is really REALLY hard to do when it just snowed 11"and the wind is around 40mph.

No thank you, but truly, do feel free to live that way yourself, I've no problem with it.

Wait so now someone is smug because they biked for miles in the rain so they can park it by the door and laugh at the people who sat in comfortable, climate controlled vehicles that carried them to within 80 ft of the door.


10/10 I guess since I bit.

I never, ever, ever wait for a parking spot. There is almost always a spot further away. I don't care if I have to walk a mile to park. I've never had to park so far away that it wasn't faster than waiting for a parking spot like a moron.

cwolf20: gunga galunga: HBK: TinyFist: Wasn't me. I usually park towards the back of the lot and walk because there's nothing worse than being stuck behind someone willing to wait 5 minutes for a car to move than to walk the extra 40 feet.

When there are open spots available and someone follows me and waits for my spot, I usually get in my car, turn on the air conditioning, and make a phone call. If there are no other spots available for the waiting car (like at a restaurant, bar, or park), I back out promptly.

It's really aggravating when you're stuck behind these assholes who wait for a person to load their baby in the car, fold up the stroller and put it in the car, and then load their groceries. That's about when I usually lean on the horn.

/I get impatient in parking lots. Just park and walk to the damn store.

It never fails to make me feel stabby whenever I see somebody sit in their car and clog up the parking lot behind them for five minutes just so they can avoid having to walk a few extra yards.

in my case, I absolutely love college students who fail to notice that there would never be any possible way that I could get into the space on the other side of the truck since their car is too close in the opposite side of the parking lot.  So I would have moved on and let them have it.

It's amusing to see and hear his girlfriend cuss him out for almost wrecking because he took a fast left into said space as I was heading forward at 8 miles an hour. Almost resulting in my bumper getting close and personal with her lap.


Dude, you sound like a dick.

LDM90: starsrift: I remember when I was in university, I loved farking with the twits who did this.

Especially when I was walking or cycling home.

Me too. They should just park farther, the extra steps will do them good.

I gotta get out of this thread, it's making me ragey. Especially the one about Asian restaurants. Remind me never to go to this "Asia" place.


I've seen this happen in SF. It's a scene.
