A Man Parked Next to a Poorly-Parked BMW, However When He Returned to His Car He Found a Note Claiming That HE Was the Bad Parker

A man named Alex was in need of his weekly groceries. He headed out in his car, driving to his local large supermarket. Everything was fine, until he ended up in a parking dilemma. Here is what he had to say:

Parking Preferences

Alex had certain health conditions that didn’t qualify for a disabled badge but made him prefer parking as close as possible to the entrance. He also had a habit of choosing a parking spot that facilitated a quick and convenient exit.

Upon arrival, Alex found a parking space that appeared to fit his criteria perfectly. However, he noticed a car to his right, which seemed to be parked too close to, if not partially encroaching, into his chosen space.

Despite the encroaching car, Alex decided to park in the spot anyway, positioning his car right in the center of the space. The tight spot made it difficult to open his car door, so he decided to exit through the passenger side instead.

The adjacent and poorly parked car, a BMW, was also parked facing the same direction as Alex’s car. This meant that the driver’s side doors of both cars were on the same side.

As Alex was walking toward the store, he noticed a man approaching a car, the BMW. Alex continued walking, but as the man reached the front of the car, he voiced his displeasure with the parking situation. The man exclaimed, “You’re kidding!?” and shouted “Hey!” to get Alex’s attention.

Alex explained that despite the potential altercation that the man’s calls suggested, they did not amount to anything: “I turned around, but by then he was turning back to his car. I gave it a second, thinking I was going to have to go back and move my car if asked to, but he didn’t look back at me, so I carried on walking and got on with my shop.”

A Surprising Note

Due to a lengthy shopping list, Alex spent quite some time inside the supermarket. Upon returning to his car, Alex noticed that the BMW had departed, leaving a note on his windshield.

The note read: “Are you really that bad a driver? Have some courtesy for other drivers. Your parking sucks!”

Reflecting on the situation, Alex experienced a sense of guilt, acknowledging that his parking choice might have made things inconvenient for the other driver. However, he also believed that the driver of the BMW had brought this situation upon themselves by parking in a manner that encroached into his chosen space.

Now, Alex found himself pondering whether he was in the wrong or if his parking choice was justified given the circumstances. He headed online to seek the opinion of others, and to his relief, he was defended. “You’re parked exactly in the middle”, one person reminded him. “Not your fault they are a terrible parker”.

A lot of readers expressed to Alex that they had experienced similar situations. “I do this all the time too”, wrote one. “I’m usually not the passive-aggressive type, but for some reason, bad parking is a pet peeve of mine. If I can fit my car in the spot properly, then I’m going to park there. I like to think that will stop the person from double parking in the future.”

An Amusing Reaction

One commenter had a laugh about the BMW driver: “It is pretty funny that the guy called out to you, didn’t follow through, and then left a weirdly non-aggressive note. It’s like he couldn’t commit to being angry lol”.

Many readers poked fun at the BMW driver, in an attempt to cheer Alex up. “Well-known fact #617”, started one commenter. “85% of BMW drivers are bad parkers”, they humorously finished.
