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

Of it's raining, close to the entrance. Otherwise I would choose a bit further back, so that the risk of door dings is less.

I like to walk if the weather is nice.

I like to be as close as I can to the door. When I'm with hubby he always parks far away.

I park far away unless it's super super hot

I don't care where I park except it has to be by a cart corral.

It really depends but typically I park farther away because I want to walk.

I park by the furthest out cart return.

DH is handicapped so I try to park in a hadicapped spot if one is available (if he is with me of course).  If it is not I drop him off at the front and then meet him up there after I have parked.
