Do you park close to the store or do you park farther?

I park farther to get more excise.

  • farther for 2 reasons: its not gonna kill me to walk an extra few feet, even tho everyone fights for that closer spot for some reason, and because its not worth the hassle. People hit your car with their doors, bags, keys, carts, when you park closer.

  • I park where I can get a space. Sometimes there arent many spaces so I take what I can get.

  • If I don't have anyone to help me carry stuff, then I try to park close.

  • I park as close as I can, I do plenty of walking in the store, I don't want to do any more than I have to in the weather getting in and out of the store.

  • I usually park in the first open spot that I come to. Unless I have my Dad with me. His health isn't too great, so I try to park close. But if that isn't an option, I just drop him off at the door, then park the car.
