Found in LA: We Know You Went to USC, But Where Did You Learn How to Park?
If you're going to park like this, you deserve to be publicly humiliated.
Admittedly, this kind of douchebaggery is nothing new in our me-me-me four-wheeled town. LAist Featured Photos Pool frequent contributor mil8 shares with us this snap of a recent parking lot head-scratcher between a very badly parked Honda and his own vehicle. The pic comes with the following title: "hello honda, nice parking job. I was here first (hi) over here... next to you... parked nicely next to the wall in a COMPACT spot. Were you *really* in that much of a hurry to park like this? KTHXBYE."
We'll grant that at least the Honda in question is more of a compact than the usual Escalades and Hummers that bulldoze their bulky frames into the slender spots supposedly set aside for the smaller cars out there, but agree with our photog that a can opener might be the only means of getting back into his poor wedged vehicle. It's doubtful we'll ever stop seeing this happen, nor the inevitable questioning: WHY, PEOPLE, WHY IS THIS NECESSARY?
