Inconsiderate Parking

Lately I have come across tons of people who are taking up multiple parking spaces in prime parking area for no good reason.  I have actually watched a couple of them and when they come back to their vehicle, it was as if it was no big deal and perfectly okay.  So, for all of you out there who think it is okay to park in multiple parking spaces, here are a few tips.
  1. If you have to park in more than one space because your vehicle is too big, then get a smaller vehicle.  Just because we are in Texas,  the "bigger is better" motto doesn't have to apply to everything.  In fact, try getting a Smart car or a Honda Fit, you can easily park them in any normal parking space.
  2. If you are parking in more than one space because you don't want anyone to mess with your new car; you are very mistaken.  People are more likely to leave you nasty notes, block you in, or do something mean to your car simply because you are being a jerk.  If you park in a normal space, people are more likely to be careful not to hit your vehicle.
  3. If you absolutely cannot park in one space, then go park on the outside perimeter of the parking lot.  Out there, no one cares if you take up 2 spaces to park your pickup that is 4 times the size of a normal vehicle.
  4. Lastly, if you are parking there because you are a jerk and refuse to park nicely, then you have no right to complain if something happens to your car.
This is such a pet peeve of mine and with all of the over-sized vehicles we have here in Texas, this happens all the time.  UGH!!!
