This is a different situation, but arrogant parking is a pretty apt description.
I had to do some work at a client's office. To beat the traffic, I showed up early--well before the start of traditional office hours. That meant the visitor's parking lot was empty when I pulled in. I backed into a spot three slots down from a driveway. There is a parking station where you have to feed your credit card and receive your parking stub to display in your windshield that was located on wall on the other side of the driveway.
I was at the machine when I noticed another car pulling into the visitor's lot at a rate of speed I wouldn't have engaged in given the circumstances (tight 90-degree corners into a parking lot with the drive flanked by concrete barriers and walls). The arrogant driver (to use the terminology of this thread), stopped his car, threw it into reverse and zoomed into the number two slot directly beside me. I thought he was going to take out the passenger side of my car based on the speed and the angle he used to back into the space. It was just frantic.
Then as he was exiting his car he just ramrodded against my passenger side mirror, whipping it back with a terrible noise. At that point I pointedly and firmly expressed my displeasure at the lack of care he was showing my vehicle. His reply was that the mirror was on a spring, and it was meant to move.
I told him that if he couldn't be careful of other people's property he should have parked directly beside me, given that there was a huge empty parking lot available. Apparently he took offense to that saying I didn't have the right to tell him where to park. He got upset, called me a few names and huffed off.
I really didn't want to leave my car, but I was damned if I was going to move it to let him "win" (which I'll admit is a stupid attitude). I was worried about the car all day. Thankfully, when I finally left the client's (long after traditional business hours were over, because it was that kind of a job) everything was okay. I was really expecting to find it keyed or something.
I swear I don't know what's wrong with people.
