Passing a driver’s test is every teen’s dream, especially since it means they’re the ones held responsible for their own travel and are able to purchase their own means of transportation. But to some, it seems like parking the car at its designated spot is too boring.
When you park this bad – you must suffer the consequences. Whoever did this, whether it was a fellow shopper or an employee, we applaud their gusto.
Spot the Poor Parker
We’ve seen some passive-aggressive moves in our day, but this has got to be one of the best comebacks to a bad situation. Let’s just say we’ve dubbed whoever wrote this note – the Robinhood of parking. He managed to call this bad parker out in the best way possible, telling whoever parked so poorly to take a “dog named Spot” because they’re taking up many parking spots. We wonder how many notes like this Robinhood has left, and if he’s managed to make a difference in the world of parking.
Whoever parked this car should be punished – twice! Parking in a handicapped spot is bad enough as is, but parking in two – well that’s a whole other level of inconsiderate. We hope that they learned their lesson and moved their car as soon as they realized what they had done. More importantly, we hope that anyone that needed these two parking spots parked without a problem.
Why So Blue?
If you are going to be inconsiderate of others, especially the handicapped, you are in for a big dose of karma – and it does not like law-breaking individuals like the owner of the car in the picture below. We can only imagine how much time it took to place all those post-its on the car, but the end result is an impeccable one. There is bad parking, and then there is just plain being thoughtless and unkind.
Why park your car in a parking lot outside the marina, when you can insist to load the vehicle onto your friend’s yacht? They were nice enough to invite you for a boat ride, surely, the invitation meant plus one (car).
This resembles a game of dominos more than a parking lot, especially when examining how every car followed with the leaning tendency of the original red and pink vehicles, which are clearly to blame for this parking mess. A closer examination will reveal that some of these cars are not only diagonal, but they also brush against the ones positioned next to them. We certainly hope no major damage was caused to these cars, who simply wanted to play along.
Stink At Parking
If you stink at parking and have a tendency to do whatever you want expecting absolutely no consequences, maybe you should check your ego, amigo. Just because it has not happened yet does not mean someone is not out there, plotting the ultimate revenge. This guy in the picture below was not going to let the selfish driver of the black car get away with his mischievous ways, so he came up with a creative solution to make him think of what he’s done.
Very Inconsiderate Parker
Since the owner of this red car does not believe in parking etiquette, it only made sense that someone would draw up a parking spot around it. Although, we do not believe the usual definition of VIP (very important person) applies in this case. If anything, it should stand for very inconsiderate parker, as clearly, this person did not think of anyone else but themselves when they positioned their car this way. At least now the person knows their license plate is not to be forgotten for acting this way.
Balance Is Key
It is hard to imagine the situation which caused this car to lean on the Fiat that way, but evidently, even the impossible is possible when it comes to supernatural parkers. Perhaps the driver of the grey car was told they had plenty of space to back up but did not know the person giving directions had zero distance estimation abilities. It is hard to think of a way for either of these cars to get out of this sticky situation.
Matt was told not to borrow his parents’ car when they were not home, but he simply could not skip the jam session his friends planned over at the local jazz club. As he drove toward the party excitedly, his fedora slipped on his eyes and caused him to run into a tree. Ashamed of his carelessness and afraid of his parents’ reaction, Matt did the first thing that came to his mind – and parked the car on top of the house. That way, it wouldn’t be discovered.
Drowning In Sorrow
Little did Matilda know that the storm announced on the weather channel the night before was more than accurate, stating people should beware of ground collapsing and sinkholes forming. She has worked hard her entire senior year in high school to be able to afford whatever beat-up car she could lay her hands on – but evidently, parking in a safe spot was not something she had in mind, especially considering all the warning signs that were hung up in the area when alerts about the storm were made.
Back To The Future
Now here is something you do not see everyday – a car defying the laws of gravity! This could just as well be Superman’s chosen ride, since we cannot think of another living, breathing soul who would ever park their car this way. As if that ‘no entry’, bold red sign was not enough to warn drivers of this potential disaster, the fact the pavement simply ends could have been a subtle hint to stop driving forward.
Ray Of Sunshine
Peggy wanted nothing more than to come back to a car that is not freezing cold. Considering the fact this was in the middle of January and she only intended on making a quick visit to the mall before the stores closed off for the day, she thought there was no harm in making herself a window. That way, her car would bathe in the sunlight, and she will return to a vehicle that is not freezing cold. No harm no foul, right?
Talk about the irony – this towing truck did not get the memo that it is not supposed to be mounted on top of a car, but the opposite is the right way around. We feel bad for whoever parked their car so carefully in that spot, considering they had enough space to pick and choose whatever parking spot they wanted. How were they to know this tow truck would decide to park on them, out of all places?
Smart cars have the ability to park nearly anywhere – which is why it is so excruciating to find a picture like this. Out of all the parking spaces available, we find it hard to believe that the only one found was this one, the one clearly stated was forbidden for parking. We have to give credit where credit is due, however, and the round of applause this time around is for the person who went out of their way to punish the lousy parker for their rebellious ways.
Not Exactly Carpooling
Gregory was sick and tired of the attention he has been given and way he has been treated because of his red, convertible sports car. For some, owning such hot wheels might sound like the ultimate dream, but as Gregory found out, it is better to have a little and be happy than have a lot and be miserable. In an act of desperation, he drove his car into the private pool positioned in the backyard, but come morning, gravely regretted his decision.
Spread Your Springs
Dreams are great – they assist in giving us something to aim for, an ulterior goal far off into the distance, thus providing us with a meaning to life. This car, as pictured below, obviously had aspirations of its own – to become a helicopter. And while technology is not advanced enough to give this set of wheels a couple of wings, it is clear that whoever parked the car in the helicopter landing spot thought this could speed up the process.
Tanked That Park
Imagine waking up in the morning bright and early to get a kick start out of your day. As you prepare yourself a cup o’ joe and whistle your favorite tune, you daydream about acing that big presentation you have scheduled at 9 am. Then, you leave the house and walk toward your car – only to find out that a boot was placed on it a night before. Now imagine this exact case scenario, but replace the car with an army tank.
Grocery stores are aware of the fact that most of their customers use their cars to take the shopping bags back home, which is why there’s an unwritten rule that when building such a facility, enough parking space should be provided. The person who parked this car ignored the parking spots available, which is why the employees of the store thought of the best possible comeback – a cart carousel surrounding the car. By the time everything will be cleared, they’ll have time to think about what they did.
Lean On Me
Watching the driver who made this improvised car statue happen in real time would have either been hilarious or disastrous, but there is no denying the end result is a rare one. It is almost as if these cars were positioned this way on purpose, to make passersby rethink their driving abilities and why one should never, ever drink and drive. However, the cars are positioned in a parking lot, so we are going to go out on a limb here and say this was simply parking gone wrong.
Private Made Public
The best thing about owning a car is that you no longer have to depend on public transportation. This means no more brushing shoulders with strangers or no longer having to check bus times. However, there is a hefty price to pay when owning a car – the price of the car itself, insurance, gas – and having to put up with cars honking endlessly during rush hour. The owner of this car clearly couldn’t make up her mind which is worse.
You Have Been Warned
There is a reason you are not meant to park your car next to a fire hydrant – because in case of a fire, a tube will be inserted inside it to enable a strong flow of water to put out the fire. If a car gets in the way, there is only one possible outcome – the fire department will smash your car windows to fit the tube through. This was the case for the poor BMW parked in the no parking section of the road.
Dancing In The Shade
Owning an old car, one that is no longer being made or sold in the market is a lot of responsibility. First, only the most professional mechanics know how to handle the antique vehicles. Second, it is hard to find the original parts to replace when the old ones stop doing the job. Because of these reasons and more, the owner of this antique car decided to park his vehicle where the shopping carts are meant to be positioned, so that it doesn’t get rained on.
The World Is Your Oyster
Who has not parked their car in such a way when entering a parking lot that is completely empty of cars? Maybe there is a thrill in knowing you are doing something against the law, or perhaps it is the mere thought of being your own boss and not having to do as you are told that enabled this type of behavior. Either way, there really is no justification for this sort of behavior, no matter how many cars are nearby.
He Got Benched
When a soccer player pulls one too many stunts, they get carded and benched for the rest of the game. However, we doubt this car misbehaved in a way that made its owner park it on a local park bench. The BMW should have been positioned in a place that would not disturb pedestrians who want to rest. If a car gets worn out and needs to find a place to rest, there’s a name for that – a parking lot.
Evidently, the owner of this dark blue car thinks their need to park close to home is much more of an emergency that whatever this ambulance is on the street for. Maybe if the car owner would have looked up, they would have realized that by parking right behind the ambulance, they were blocking the entryway to it, meaning whoever it was ordered for was unable to be taken away to the hospital. This case of horrible parking could have cost a human life!
Stone Cold Parking
Not being able to see a pebble or any other small object on the road is understandable, but we find it hard to believe that the owner of this car simply did not see the huge rock positioned right in front of its car. It is also worth mentioning that the rock is not on the road, but rather on the piece of grass next to the designated parking, so it would take special efforts to have your car climb on the rock that way.
Revenge Of The Mini(ons)
Owning a Smart car is not only wise in the sense that it is easy to handle and park but apparently, it means you need to be able to think outside the box and be able to come up with creative solutions for everyday problems. This Smart driver (pun intended) had enough of people parking in whatever way they see fit and not taking others into consideration, so he decided not to pick on someone his own size and pulled the ultimate park prank.
Above The Law
No one is above the law, as enforcers in the field often like to point out and remind those who beg to differ. However, this red truck owner clearly thinks otherwise, which is why he landed face up on the front of the Worcester police car. We wonder if the officer seen writing the report and assessing the damage had to call 911, or simply filed the suit himself on account of being both a witness and a person of authority.
A lot of people who overwork themselves make jokes about being married to their job or living in the office. The police officer driving this car, however, took things a bit too literally when he drove through the station’s wall and parked his car where his cubicle used to be. At least the local investigator of this station would not be needed for his services to solve this mystery – as being too tired is the clear cause of this accident.
Into The Woods
At first glance, it may look like the Whomping Willow from Harry Potter is not something straight out of a fantasy novel, and the series could perhaps be non-fiction, but sadly, magic has to be proven as real and this is just the case of a bad driver somehow ending up parking on a tree and not a timber that was cast under a spell. This could also have been an accident – but how did the car manage to get so high up the tree?
Real Life Rush Hour
Remember the game Rush Hour? The objective of the game was that players had to slide blocking cars and trucks around in a way that would let only the red car exit the board from the hectic parking situation it was stuck in. This picture reminds us of the all-time favorite puzzle enjoyed by all ages to this very day, but there is not denying this real-life situation was less fun and more a nuisance for whoever needed to leave the parking lot.
Is there a bigger “I don’t care about anyone but myself” sign than this one? Usually, we are all for the direct approach, but there is no denying this hilarious sign is communicating the message by using both wit and a sarcastic tone, so we appreciate the creative poster put up. Maybe that will teach the owner of the car a lesson – not to think that it is better than others and learn how to treat residents in the building with the utmost respect it claims back.
Revenge On Bad Parking
When all you want to do is get to and from your home and your place of work and maybe stop at a store on the way, it can be incredibly frustrating when someone has parked in your way. If you’ve parked in someone’s way, then you’re a hazard to everyone else! That’s why this caring citizen has tightly bound this car in plastic wrap; if whoever parked the car can’t get into it to drive away, everybody else is safe from their dangerous driving.
Wanting to take advantage of his time spent along the seaside, the unfortunate driver of this car decided to get a front-row seat of the ocean. Still, he may have overestimated how much space he had to park efficiently. We can’t fault this driver for wanting to make the most of what is a beautiful seascape, but his enthusiasm may have been rash, causing this clumsy attempt at parking. It just goes to show that ambition and ineptitude, make for a wretched combination.
New Prescription Glasses
This driver may want to get new glasses as he parked in what was obviously a driving lane, this would certainly count as a parking violation. It is against the law virtually everywhere to park a vehicle in the middle of a road, and doing so will result in a heavy fine. We can’t help but feel a smidge of embarrassment for them and their miscalculated parking. We’re sure that they will come back to their car and feel even more embarrassed!
Stairs Or a Bus Ramp?
As we can all probably imagine, bus drivers can sometimes struggle to maneuver their big vehicles around sharp bends and narrow roads but what happens when you need to get somewhere and face a vertical challenge? Well, this driver seemed quite optimistic about his ability and thought that he can somehow drive upstairs to get to his destination… He must’ve been thinking, “If SUVs and jeeps can do it, why not me?” Well, this is why.
How in the world did this happen? Spontaneously reversing into a parked car seems implausible, but then again, crazier things have happened. We can see that the Hyundai didn’t park within the lines, which probably caused the second car to exact revenge and reverse his vehicle until the offender’s car was sufficiently damaged. Did he go overboard with his retribution? Perhaps, but the more important question is, was it worth it? It’s difficult to say, all we know is that his reasoning for doing this certainly won’t hold up in court.
Parking in San Fransisco
Parking your car up the hills of San Francisco can be tricky, so here are some inside tips on how to avoid the hassle. First of all, don’t park on top of other cars, not only is this inconsiderate to other drivers but it will likely result in damage to both your cars. Secondly, make sure to park your car in the same direction as the flow of the traffic, so that your car doesn’t obstruct the movement of other passing vehicles.
Frustration is mounting for these drivers coming to shop at their local Co-Op in the City. One audacious driver doesn’t seem to mind parking in what looks like an illegal parking spot. Why does lousy parking make people so upset? Because this isn’t just about parking. It’s about people not caring about anyone else. Yes, most people would be stunned that someone would dare park like this, but as this list shows, we are not in short supply of bad parkers.
This kind of parking can only be described as an offensive display of utter carelessness. Making the mistake of parking in disabled parking is terrible, but that’s not exactly what this guy did, he parked in two spaces, one of them clearly disabled. We are all left wondering, how can someone park like this and just walk away from their car? Surely, they must see how rude this is? It doesn’t matter what excuse you have; there’s no reason to park this bad.
Cash Can Corrupt
It turns out the rich are different from you and me, they park their fancy cars like entitled clowns. It would be fair to say that having money makes people feel more deserving of special treatment. Many have wondered, ‘why do people in luxury cars park so terribly?’ There are few things more irritating in life than having to deal with other peoples’ inability to park their cars properly, it doesn’t matter what kind of car they drive and parking like this across two spaces is selfish and infuriating.
Any Feasible Parking
A springtime walk to the park, or down a sidewalk in our local neighborhood should be simple and straightforward, but it isn’t when it’s taken up by parked cars. Motorists should know that the sidewalk isn’t a road or a parking lot and there’s no justification for vehicles to be in the pedestrians’ space. If there isn’t enough parking space, the sidewalk feels like the last remnant of public space. Does that make it feasible? Yes, but that doesn’t mean it’s ok.
