Default The worst parking.

My car is on the right. Came back from dinner with my friend who is 93, and here’s what I see.

It's a shame you couldn't have that vehicle towed. (I imagine you just wanted to leave)

How did that shifter feel as you slid past it to get to the driver's seat? Ouch!

I think I would take the picture to the police station and see if a ticket can be issued.

It is parked illegally and rather irresponsibly.

If we were younger would have taken concrete measures to show them we were not amused.

When I was a young man I had a low tolerance for that kind of cr@p. This would've cost them 4 new tires.

Since I'm older and less prone to such actions I would've uncovered my belt buckle and slide down the side of the car to squeeze into my car. Obviously not able to get my door open I would only attempt this maneuver a half dozen times.

I would have called the police and let them call for a tow truck. I think I could crawl over the console and get into the driver seat but there is no way my wife could.

I agree, share it with the cops.

Perhaps we are all coming to the wrong conclusion? Clearly the car on the right is in a handicap parking space. Is that car parked legally? Does it have a handicap plate or placard on display? If not, perhaps the Chevy driver has a placard and sees that the handicap spot was being used by someone who does not have the proper credentials. Sooooo then the handicapped Chevy driver did the best he could squeezing into the spot that should have been available? If this is the case, he/she did a pretty good job.... Just sayin'

Two wrongs don't make a right. My assumption is the OP has a handicap permit or he/she's not all there posting a photo that would incriminate him/her.

OP says his or her car is on the right. That is the one that is not shockingly parked. And the one on the left shows the license plate.

my mind races when I see stupid (I'm being very kind and non-vulgar) things like this.
First - I would have placed the 93 YO in the pass seat of my car then - go to establishments near the parking and try to have them announce to find the owner. If they were able to in a reasonable amount of time - like 5 minutes, I would have personally SO chewed them out. Picture of car/plate for evidence.
Second - if I had to go thru the pass door and over the console etc etc, I must say...there may be some minor damage to the body of that car on the left. No excuse for that type of ridiculous park job. period. Idiotic.
