Why Can't People Open Doors...

without banging them into the car next to them. You park out of the way next to a wall, leaving only one side open to attack (even though your right close to the wall to leave extra space) and then some half wit still manages to hit the door, especially after you just washed and waxed it

Am I the only one that get really fecked off with these tossers?

Gotta agree with you. Problem is the parking spaces are made for minis.
The only place with a proper size space is Costco.

Parked my Transit in Ikea car park Croyden when I saw the fecker in the car next to it open his door without a care in the world. This left a nasty mark in the side. I walked up to his car and keyed it right in front of him and he never said a word.

The funny thing was when i got out i was sure that they were going to hit it (just had a feeling after looking at their car) and then got back in and moved closer to the wall, still got it though.

When I had the porsche i would take up two car parking spaces to avoid the problem. The spaces are too small for the cars especially if you have kids to get in and out as well. I suggest everyone takes up two spaces if one is not big enough that way the designers may start to take note and make them wider.

It would save the paintwork but round here it would end up with loads of parking tickets
