DH has retired and we are now down to one car (big mistake).
As I am only just back behind the wheel (foot op) I have gratefully had to -
endure experience DH's parking on hospital visits and the supermarkets jaunt etc.
DH will drive round and round in the hope of finding a parking space,
Increasingly getting more and more irate.
He will then spend the next minute or so backing in to the space.
At this point iI usually ask to get out but get told to still and wait until we are parked perfectly between the lines.
Yesterday we had to pick up somethings from Aldi.
DH automatically got in to drivers
seat, not a problem
That is until we arrived at
supermarket and the car park was packed.
I suggested that DH take his list and start the shopping whilst I find a space (with my parking angel).
I got the look!
Its a one way system so round and round we went.
I pointed out a car that looked like it was ready to reverse out, unfortunately we were slightly across the back of it and so we were required to reverse back. Dh put indicator on
But the one car behind refused to
Dh got out a car and tried to explain. (Politely) that we were waiting for the space and could he reverse back a bit.
The lady in parked car said she needed to get to work so we moved forward and the car behind took our space!
So my question is how do you park?
Are you drive a round and round till you find a space person?
or do you do what I usually do
which is to assume that in such places as hospitals and supermarkets people are coming and going all the time.
Therefore bide your time and watch for the person coming out with keys in hand or shopping bags/ trolley
See where they are heading and hopefully drive round and wait.
I will also ask a person who looks like returning to their vehicle if they are in fact going.
If they are they will usually point to where their car is parked enabling me to drive round.
In some cases they have even given me their parking ticket (if a town car park)
In return if I see someone looking for a space as I return to my vehicle I will tell them that I am just leaving and where I'm parked.
