I was beginning to think I was the only one plagued by door opening idiots!
My other half has often thought I was losing the plot when it comes to parking in supermarket car parks.
As mentioned by a number of you guys, I will go out of my way to park as far from the main entrance as I can.
One of the best scraps I've seen in recent years involved 2 women fighting over a parking space right outside the entrance to my local Sainsburys; ironically, it was a disabled bay they were fighting over!
It still astonishes me when I return to my car and find another parked so close to mine, that I can't get the drivers door open!
Bearing in mind that there will be no other car parked within 100 feet of mine!
This has happened on so many occasions over the years that my other half has finally had to agree that I'm not imagining it.
I was sitting in my car a little while ago, waiting for my daughter who had just popped into Sainburys; I was admiring a very new Audi A8 which was parked opposite, when a woman driving a battered old Astra heaving with kids parked next to it.
I had a feeling in my water what was going to happen next!
Her door fly's open... bang! A nice ding in the front passenger door.
Rear door swung open to let the hoard out... several bangs! I could actually see the the rear door skin on the Audi distorting as she was forcing her rear door open to get a kid out of a child seat!
Again, there were plenty of other spaces that she could have parked in; it just seems that some people have a need to park next to another car. I have no idea what that need is though?
I've now come to the conclusion, that no matter how well you look after your wheels, if you have to use public car parks on a regular basis, you have to expect the obligatory car park dings!
