Where do you like to park?

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

Walking hurts so I park in a handicapped spot if there is one available.

For exercise? Or another reason?

I have a vertebrae that likes to slip out of alignment periodically. I have broken my left foot and both of my ankles.  To make it worse, I have bone spurs on the top of my feet that make my feet swell.  That makes it hard to walk.
