...what do you mean, they don't? Could've fooled me.
So I went to the bank for a quick withdrawal, and the parking area was completely full. With one twist: some idiot parked so badly he/she was taking two spots. And I'm not talking about two spots next to each other, like is usually the case, but rather two spots IN FRONT OF EACH OTHER. That left basically nothing but two parking spot halves over the entire area. Now I have a small car (not a Smart though, these things are anything but), so I was able to cram most of it in there so that I'd block off as little of the way as possible for passing cars. I go inside, do my thing, and come out to find out that someone else did the same thing on the other side. That meant the original asshat's car was completely surrounded on all sides, with no way out of there at all until either I or the car that had just arrived left. Which I promptly did before whoever this idiot was returned, because I didn't want to deal with a potential case of road rage. In the end nothing came out of it for anyone (unless someone else took the spot I was at immediately afterwards), but I have never, EVER seen anything like it. By the way, just so you know, I probably would've waited until a real spot opened up had I not gone in there for a one-minute job, as I don't like the idea of the back of my car being gone when I come back.
This was your daily reminder that unlike what the common perception says, driving competently is definitely NOT overrated.
