Why is it (supermarket parking)
So The Boss and I run a couple of old cars - by choice not by desperation - which I lovingly maintain in pristine condition to the best of my ability. To assist with that, when we park-up in a supermarket/industrial estate car-park we will wherever possible park-up in the emptiest row we can find, miles away from the shop(. This is an attempt to steer clear of the ‘Wacky Racers’ who basically don’t care if they scrape our car while driving in/out of their space, nor do they care if one of their sticky-fingered prepubescent little darlings smacks our car as they fling their back door open. So having today visited my local Morrisons and parked in what I considered to be THE most inconvenient row with not one other car in it except mine, why is it when I came back out of the shop, not only has some idiot parked their horrible huge, smelly, choke-belching, diesel 4x4 ‘Essex tractor’ in the space right next to it – every other space in the whole row was STILL free!!! – but my car now has a huge chip in back wing . The flake of red paint on the leading edge of their monstrosity’s back door, along with the child’s booster cushion on the nearest seat, is evidence enough of what caused it and how it happened. No apology note under the wiper or anything, of course. The whole damn row was free…so why park in the exact next space??! Especially with a car that big. I wonder if she* noticed all her tyres were flat before she* dove away (wonderful things, biros: always keep one handy). *Bet it was a she: huge oversized 4x4 in Morrisons with one babyseat in the back = she. Guaranteed. Not a happy chappy can you tell.
