I believe this type of park job is one of the “I don’t give a fuck” variety, second in prevalence only to the “ineptitude” category.
The best part is that I didn’t just happen upon this car–I actually wached the guy park it. He pulled into the lot, pulled into the middle of two spots, got out, looked at his car for a second, and then walked across the street to the Delicious Fresh Pierogies store. Even though this guy was an idiot, I still have a little bit of respect for his blatant disregard of societal norms. He is a reminder that, every once in a while, it is good to break out of the mold that has been created for us. But, I still don’t think parking lots are the ideal places to flaunt this particular world view.
