Taken on Gloucester's Eastgate Street, this is also a double yellow.

I guess because the rozzers use BMWs this man thought it OK to park there.

^^ In fairness that bay is blank, 'police' is marked on the road, so the whole street is reserved for da fedz apart from the bay. If the lady was just dropping off her old knicks at the charity shop then there's nothing wrong with her parking.
However I find her choice of car contemptable.

You should have removed the valves from their tyres and stuck them to the driver's door handle with dogshit. Bet they wouldn't park there again.

The classiest piece of disabled parking I've so far seen was on a Sunday afternoon a few years ago. You could hear the car before you saw it, it was a high-powered job. As it came around the corner, it was a red, modern Ferrari, probably an F360. It pulled up in the empty car park in the disabled space nearest the shop, the engine was cut, and the youngish, slim, fit male driver disembarked from the car, wearing trousers and t-shirt.

Then he locked the car with the keys in his right hand and turned around, the left sleeve of his t-shirt flapping emptily in the breeze...

Fair enough, I though.


yes being deficiant in the arm department means you can't walk far, so have to use one of the limited number of disabled spots :roll:



bad parking really pishes me off. If their parking is that bad, just think what their driving must be like.


Yes, yes , yes...I know this has been dragged up from over a month ago, but doesn't having one arm kinda impair your ability to lug your shopping to the far end of the car park?? - If I only had the one arm I'd consider myself somewhat disabled :wink:
I had my photo taken with REM. That's me in the corner...

About 80% of the pictures posted in this thread don't even slightly irk me.

Whoever the absolute cunt is who's got http://www.youparklikeacunt.com boils my piss though. Loads of photos of car parked slightly badly with "This cunt is a cunt because he's a cunt who parks like a cunt and drives an Audi because cunts drive Audis and are inconsiderate cunts" etc etc etc.

It's the whole "Drives a and therefore is " mindset that gets me. Who's so bitter as to think that because someone drives a car made by BMW / Audi / Mercedes / Spagthorpe that they can therefore judge everybody who owns a similar kind of car as being a certain type of person? I just don't get it. Not one little bit. Really cannot comprehend that way of thinking.

Anyway. Rant over. Why can't people just go "Spagthorpe Bologna MkXXVIIb? Interesting choice, handmade in Tibet by Gerbils on amphetamines" instead of "Spagthorpe... expensive... owner is a cunt".


Oh, and before anyone says "Vauxhall", I don't take the piss out of the owners, just the cars...

If I'm not somewhere with a big parking area where I can park at the back out of the way then I park over two spaces on purpose all the time.

Otherwise some slack jawed faggot will park in the way and I'll not be able to get out.

The fact that you used to have an Audi means you used to be a cunt. With the Cortina you are now a high flying executive salesman at Ronco, which sadly also makes you a cunt.

A few weeks ago I was a double cunt but am now a normal cunt as Volksy has taken half of my cuntyness when he took the 100. Whilst he is still a taxi driver as long as he has the Corolla, he is a right cunt of a taxi driver that will take you the wrong way and then charge you more than the going rate after dropping you off at the wrong destination.

The worst drivers have quite new cars with Arnold Clark stickers on the back. You can guarantee they'll either get in your way or overtake 2 lorries slowly in 6th gear towards a blind summit, then get in the way of the lorries.

Fair enough, but I see enough 4x4 drivers badly parked to generalise that a lot of them either are incredibly shit at parking something that big, or dont want anyone parked next to them for fear of getting a parking dint in their precious £40K tank.

My record is 12 bays with a Transit, and 12ft trailer. Lazy, yes, stuck, no. Might add this was in the car park at Queensferry ASDA which has enough spaces for the entire population of North Wales. No picture though :(

Also, Ted, buy a 4x4 and tell me it isnt a PITA when you have the turning circle of of the ark royal and some goite in a fiesta parks so close they have to bend there mirrors in! Seems to be an every day thing at the moment, and how i haven't hit car/bollard/wall yet i dont know, but its coming!

"This cunt is a cunt because he's a cunt who parks like a cunt and drives an Audi because cunts drive Audis and are inconsiderate cunts" etc etc etc.

I'll defend this statement, because I have seen it happen. A month or so ago I returned from walking around a fairly local reservoir with the dog on a Saturday evening and popped into the Sainsbury's Local to get some beer. This shop is opposite a primary school and so there are zig-zags etc. around the area - check it out - but there was a sparkly white Audi A3 parked across the "Keep Clear", and in the car park beyond was a Polis video van.

I thought of chivvying the polis about the A3, because I'm a cunt like that, but didn't because ICBA. As it turns out, I didn't need to: the fuzz were waiting for the owner to reappear, and was being ticketed as I left the shop. What got me was the way he was shaking his head as if to say to himself, "I can't believe that they're booking me for this, don't they realise that it doesn't apply to me because I think my shit doesn't stink", but according to the other plod in the van it is like shooting fish in a barrel at that time of night; the car park is fairly free but people can't be arsed to walk the length of themselves.

Shame the rozzers weren't parked there at school chucking-out time the other day...

This is one of many, committed by a slightly confused looking older bloke, who delivers parcels round our way. I watched him do this, and it was almost Python-esque in a way. He drove in the street carefully, lined it up, and just stuck it on the pavement, with the arse hanging out at 45 deg.
He parked in front of me yesterday, again all carefully lined up, but...this time he was 3" off my front bumper (in an empty street) and 3' out from the pavement. Which necessitated reversing 20 yards down the street to get it straight enough to get past him.
I've been tempted to do what an acquaintance of mine 'accidentally' did, and took most of the side off a split-new Merc, with the back bumper of a truck. The owner of the Merc used to park it in the loading bay behind his shop, and had been warned several times by the police. When matey restyled it for him, the police were called, took one look and said 'Tough. You were warned.' and went on their way... :lol:

...as the actress said to the bishop.

All this reminds me of my early days working in central Belfast, early 1990s. There's a small newsagent almost directly opposite the High Court, and as such the whole area was a "Control Zone". That means no parking. At any time. Ever. The building I worked in was about 50 yards from the Court. Anyway, the oul bat that owned the newsagent would routinely park her 7 Series outside her shop, and we'd be evacuated while the Army Technical officers "wired the car up" and sent in "Artoo The Wheelbarrow" (the tracked robot with the shotgun and video camera).

Like this:

Twice in about 10 weeks, the inconsiderate old tart came back to the cordon just in time, and the Army were called off.

The third time she did it, again she came back in the nick of time, and ATO got the call on his radio to abort. DID HE FUCK ABORT. The Wheelbarow blew the arse clean off the Beemer, and all of my colleagues and I cheered from the other side of the cordon. In those days, if you parked in a CZ and the Army wrecked your car, you got jack shit compo, and many owners were fined for causing a security alert.
