I'm not really here

It would depend on what I'm driving, and also what they are driving. And my prevailing mood.
If I am in a works hire car, I would be careful.
If I was having a bad day, and I was in a scruffy old 'onda, and the car was an Audi A7 abandoned in a careless and angular fashion, when there were plenty of spare spaces elsewhere to park your behemoth, and if it was really,particularly difficult to me......then I might just, accidentally, put my ****ing shoulder into it.
Similar thread...Sunday afternoon at the tip. I pull into a space, ready to unload an unfeasible amount of garden waste. Bloke in Peugeot 5008 pulls in close to my rear bumper. I politely explain that the 'onda has a full on side mounted opening back door. 5008-man looks at me impassively and, with clear reluctance, backs up. He could have backed up a good 4 yards further if needed.
He backs up to the extent that I can open the back door sufficiently to gain access, though not fully. Once I have extracted a bag of garden waste, I need to close the boot, so I can progress towards the skips.
I do this once.
The 2nd bag through to the 6th bag are extracted, then I swing them in an arc high above the bonnet of his 5008, and then I shimmy between my boot door and his bumper.
He glares at me when he notices (3rd bag in) and sits arms folded - having completed his skip dump.
One of my bags deposits a thin trickle of plant juice on his bonnet and he gets out to tell me off. I suggest Turtle Wax might shift it.
