You're better off hiding in plain site than playing special flower.

You're missing the point. Its to avoid door dings. Ever watched a kid whip open a car door with their feet? An immense fatty who needs the whole door open? Those giant SUV doors?

Not to mention a little extra exercise, some need it more than others. satisfied.gif

Your car is more likely to be broken into if it's hidden amongst a group of cars as opposed to clearly visible from a distance. The most common cause of parking lot damage are fat dummies opening their doors too wide and crashing into the next door neighbour, also more likely when parked directly next to another car. The second most common is pulling out of a parking space and getting hit by some jackass not paying attention, also more likely if your car is more likely to see.

I have little evidentiary support for these conclusions other than personal anecdote but I accept them as true anyway. Also I don't mind walking a little further to and from my destination if it means I can avoid nearness to the unwashed masses.

Could you please inform the Fact Check Mafia when you are done watching soccer matches so that we can tell the rest of the forum that it's okay to discuss them? Thanks, really appreciate it. If it's a workload issue, just post your TiVo schedule and we'll get the word out. Thank you, as always.

Additionally, I'd be grateful if you didn't force members of Fact Check Mafia who are also members of the Anti-Lasbar Conspiracy into conflicts of interest.

Fuck fat people and fuck apologisers who believe its a "disability".*


*with the exception of actual medically-induced obesity.

I hate sitting next to beached whales on flights, had to move once as was the person next to me, was taking 30%< of my seat.

I sat next to a fat woman on a 4 hour flight once, she squeezed her arms in between the armrests, which resulted in her hand resting on my thigh the entire flight, painfully awkward, as she couldn't take a hint.

Sort of like Italian Converse. These are the most popular models I believe. And nearly the same price point.

1) not in writing
2) timing is everything
3) he has a special perspective on this story. Outsiders won't have the same reaction. Or they might, once I introduce some background.

Doesn't matter how much it costs, no car is that special.

yes, no car is so special as to excuse being a dick, but i can at least understand the mindset in certain cases. although a canucker had a good point about that, too. so, in closing, its a dick move, period.
