I use to drive a honda civic hybrid so I would park in compact spots all the time and it use to burn me up so much when a huge SUV would park next to me!

asians without a booster chair, females, and old people should NOT be allowed to park anywhere other than in the 50x50ft space marked "DUMB ASS ZONE"

I am sure you are a nice enough guy so no offence...However, any such sightings cause me to mutter something along the lines of "jackass".
If you are going to go to the trouble of being courteous enough to park so far away, can't you park in an assigned spot?
I am sure you could be towed if a store manager wanted to press the issue.

Anytime i see some dipschit taking up prime parking spots I go out of my way to park as close as I can. I drive a POS Ford Ranger so I know captain fancy will waste no time on revenge.

car doors and shopping carts are the leading cause of damage to a nice vehicle.

Ok, that didn't make a lick of sense to me. Huh? Trucker Lane? Suby?

I always go for the space right next to the cart return at the store. And if I'm by myself, I'll park to the left of it and put my passenger side an inch from the return so I have like three feet of extra space on the driver's side. More buffer to keep my car from getting door dinged.

One would think that was the worst place to park a car. Have you seen the way people put away (or don't put away) those carts? Interested to see what your logic on parking there is.

Maybe that's the best place to park because no one returns carts to that space.

Exactly! It seems anytime I don't park next to the cart return, I come out to find a cart against the side of my car. If I park next to the return then it increases the odds that people will actually put their cart away if they're that close already. Doesn't always work, but usually it does. Plus having the extra space on the other side is great.

If the guy is taking up two spaces, park somewhere else and leave a note apologizing for hitting/scratching his car. He'll go whiggy looking for the damage.
