Parked my car (straight and secure in the dead center of my chosen parking place) and ran into two stores to quickly pick up some items. Except it wasn't so quick because when I came out, some stupid git had parked so close to my car that there was absolutely no way to get into my driver's side door. In addition she had parked cockeyed and I wasn't sure that even if I took the time to climb into the car through the passenger side that I would be able to pull out safely since she was at an odd angle right behind my back bumper.
So, instead of just settling for leaving a nasty note on her car and going through extreme contortions and possibly scraping up MY car (she was that close and I didn't give a rat's ass about her car), I went into the strip mall stores in search of her. Luckily I hit paydirt on the second store (had the stores page the owner of a beige Toyota XLE). Being as wide as she was tall, I can see why she gave herself so much room on HER driver's side door but the whole crooked parking thing is still a mystery. However, she agreed, after waddling out and looking at the cars from another angle, that it was indeed a crappy parking job and moved her vehicle. She was suitably apologetic, I was relatively polite and maybe she'll be more careful the next time.
