PIOG: Where do you like to park?

Posted by   + Show Post

When in a big parking lot, do you strategically choose a parking spot?

Some people park closest to the entrance, some the exit, some like to use that opportunity to walk a bit and park farther away, some like to park where there aren't many other cars to minimize potential damage, some prefer to park at an angle rather than straight in...

I park nearest a cart return. I don't really care how far from the door, as long is there is a cart return nearby! (preferably right next to me so I can put the cart in the return and unload from there)

I often see people sit in a parking lot waiting for someone to back out so they can have a closer spot.  Of coure if there are usually hundreds of other spots available but they choose to sit and wait for that one, backing up traffic! I hate that. GRR

 I don't park near a cart return.  People seem to run into you with the carts when you are close to those things.

I usually park across from one, not directly next to.

If it's the grocery store, I try for near the cart corral.  Anywhere else, just the first spot I see, it doesn't matter near or far.

I like to park far away from other vehicles, but it never fails that when I do, it's that one person that decides to park next me and close enough to where I can't get into my vehicle. devil mini I like the convenience of not having to wait for everyone to pass by, also I have to warm up my vehicle, so I don't like to be rushed into moving, I don't have time to fight over the closest spot, I don't have baskets piled around my vehicle and I don't mind the exercise.

I park far away, I don't want my car dinged by some moron that can't park, and I don't want someone crawling up my ass for my spot when I'm leaving.
