    I am glad I am not alone in how I park or think!! I catch sh$t from my family for the way I park. It just really pi$$es me off when someone parks close to me. I prefer to walk father than park next to other vehicles. My 1 ton with a flat bed doesn't get dings because the bed is too wide.

    Well my first new car was a 1977 VW Scirocco, a real rocket for a stock car. The VW was 2 days old, I had taken my Mom to the Grocery Store in Marin County Calif., Droped her at the front door then parked way out in the lot, sitting ther reading the owner's manual. Next thing I hear is a Mercedes pull up and the lady driver gets out and clobbbers my passenger door with her door. Then she heads for the store. I get out and call her back to the car, and point out the ding to her. She tells me that you have to expect these thing and turns around and heads back to the store. WELL I had on my work boots with steel toes... Need less to say her door window would not roll down any more. You have to expect these kind of things.....

    Being an Off Roader I don't care about dents ...too much. Do have a few more cars too. I drive them all. I got rid of 3 cars this year I had in my collection cause i never had time to drive them.

    You can't have anything nice. People don't care and most are too stupid to park correctly. Another huge problem is people want to drive Kenworths and Peterbuilts everywhere. They want the biggest, longest truck/SUV they can get then drive and park it like its a little car.

    Parking spots are not made for Kenworths, so when you try to park one, you must have an IQ over 60 to understand that it must be centered and it will be a tight fit. This also means that your door will smack the vehicle next to you, so control it accordingly.

    I have accepted the fact that alot of people are self-centered neanderthals with a need to compensate and the sides of my vehicles will suffer anytime I allow them to get near me. It's just the way it is.

    When the wife and I travel, which is about 4-5 months out of the year, we pull a fifth-wheel RV with a 1-ton,dual wheeled, crew-cab diesel truck. Needless to say, it then becomes our daily driver after parking the 5'iver. We tired of people crowding us into the narrow spaces, sometimes unable to get in or out of our truck and other times unable to get out of the space. Now we park way out and take four spaces. In a pinch we use our handicapped sticker which my wife hates to use even though she has heart problems and I have severe osteoarthritis.

    I heard from a coworker that handicap tag holders have this inside feud going on. He said that he believed other handicap tag holders would key or otherwise damage cars of permit holders who had all the qualifications for the tag but didn't have an outward disability that required a wheelchair or other assistance. I had never heard of this before but I can completely believe it. His wife has a tag for acute asthma symptoms and she has seen odd retaliation type behavior on her car, she believes because she has no outward disability to others.

    Have you observed this too?

    I'm with you on this one - the day to day vehicle is a sacrifice unit. I never was our truck either. Wife has to drive it all the time also. Granted, we live out in the middle of nowhere so it doesn't get too many opportunities for new dings, but it was used when we bought it and a a few tiny ones here and there anyway. We only have the one vehicle so, until we get another one there won't be a pristine car in our garage - and when that does happen it will be a replacement for my CJ7 Jeep that I had to sell for us to move here from half way around the world!
