When that happens to me I usually just accidentally push the golf cart on its side.

I woke up in a funk this morning, but this entire subject has me laughing. Thanks you all.
Until it is my problem.

Evidently the "The Admiral" is in charge in the family. Maybe "The Ensign " needs to go to the brig since this ship seems to have a way beyond the normal number of problems for a vessel. Remember, "a slip of the lip will sink the ship."

Default Is there a rule about parking a Golf cart?

Is there a rule about parking a golf cart in a parking space? I always stagger my cart with another. However, if I am the first one in the spot, should I ALWAYS park on the front left side and leave the back right side for the next golf cart? It seems like this would free up the adjacent parking spot driver door. However, if the adjacent parking spot driver backed in, well then the opposite would be true. Help!!

Yes to everything you said. And if the other person finishes their shopping before you..... you have to go out and move your cart and then and only then can you finish your shopping.

There is no "RULE" (or law) but it is a practiced courtesy sharing the spot with carts staggered front/back. The doors on my "golf cart" are larger than our SUV doors so I am generally unable to follow that rule more times than not and get some nasty notes from folks whose eyes can't see the obvious.

The day I let someone's poor parking ruin my day to the point of having to report it on social media is the day I throw in the towel..

And you, sir, are one strong man to say so. They always say it is the woman who holds the family together. When she gives up, that’s it for the marriage. I bet you guys are just fine!

Same in our house.
Wife and I always discuss all major decisions and differing points of view in a sometimes robust, but reasonable manner.


Then we do it her way!

all I can say is Schrader Valve Tool
