Default Inconsiderate Parking !!!

The Admiral came home in a tirade, not against me--thank God--she was shopping @ the Traverse Plaza Publix

Well, some 'gentleman" parked his golf so close to her driver's side door that she was forced to enter via the passenger door, climb over the center console in order to get behind the wheel & start the car--no easy task for a person in their 70's and the car is an SL--thank GO\od again she's a fitness freak

Do you think it was one of the TOTV posters? I always wonder who some of the guys look like.

I always park my golf cart behind the front door of cars. It easier for me to climb over golf carts than try to squeeze between cart aNd car. But, everybody not nice guy like me

Thank god she's a fitness freak, because she had to climb over the console. That reminds of people who go to the gym and drive around looking for a parking space close to the building so they can go inside and walk on a treadmill.

I once had two bicycles park on both sides of me up close to the side doors and I had to crawl in through the lift gate.

Hubby can’t climb over the console, he is a big man. Would have moved golf cart instead.

Bicycles? Seriously? Couldn't they be picked up and thrown out of the way?

I've released the brake on carts and pushed them out of my way (and left them there). It takes two to play a game..... unless it's solitaire.

Don't own a golf cart-how do you release the brake? & how do you put a golf cart in neutral ?

Hemmed in with bicycles close to the side doors of a car, is like being stranded...on an escalator.
