PET PEEVE - People who back into their parking space in a public parking lot
I've almost been hit a few times- with these people who back in their parking space - they "reversed" into their parking spots then they pull out in front of me. Many times, the parking aisle is one way. Men do this more than women. There they are, slightly reclined in the driver's seat with their right arm over the passenger seat. Then they turn their steering wheel with ease and back right in. BUGS ME. What is the purpose of doing that? ACTUALLY, I checked into this. When men parked, they took MORE effort - to wiggle in, reverse. Delayed gratification because if you back in and pay the price at the beginning, you don't have to wiggle your way out when you leave. Silly men!
Another pet peeve is when people drive through the parking lot to the empty space in front of them - pointed nose out - Once again, dicey on a one way. Then when you are cruising the parking lot, going in the right direction, you are mostly looking for those backing out, not coming through. When they do this, they tend to demand the right of way. Old women and men do this a lot.
I wonder, are there any LAWS regarding this. Once I saw a cop sitting in a parking space and he yelled at some woman who was driving through the parking spaces. She almost caused an accident. He didn't get out to give a ticket - just yelled at her.
Why can't people follow the common-sense-rules? It's not like it gets them any better parking space. I think, people who do this, think they are somewhat smarter than the rest of us.
"Haha, I am so smart, I drove right on through to park."
" I'm too good to park the right way."
"My way or the highway."
On occasion, my husband has backed into a parking space at Lowes or Home Depot. He says it's so he can get out faster.
He has also, driven through the parking slot at the grocery store - which is idiotic because when you come out with groceries, you have to maneuver the shopping cart in between the other cars to get to your trunk.
He doesn't do it anymore with me.
