This is sort of 1/2 a story and 1/2 a question I guess, anyhow I will proceed. My hubby is very particular where and how he parks the car in the car park. He is always careful of spots that a wayward shopping trolley can run into and avoids these and we both never leave our shopping trolley in a car space or abandon it, it must be returned to the trolley bay and I have to admit that on many occasions I have returned abandoned trolleys back to their home as well. He also parks away from other cars if this is possible and this leads me to my story and question. On Tuesday we visited a Masters Store, the car park was not at all busy or full. We parked in a spot that had no cars next to us. On our return to the car there was a work type ute parked next to us, it was quite close and I had to be very careful opening my door. The point I am making is that there was a half of the car park empty, the row in front of us was empty (yes a whole row) the car space next to this ute was empty (actually there were three spaces ) yet this guy decided he would park right next to our car. I am bewildered and slightly confused to why some folk park right next to another car when there are ample spots free of cars. This type of thing happens quite regularly and I was wondering if this happens to you or if you could shed some light on the reason behind it (or should I say next to it lol.) I am trying to look into the psychology of this action. Any clues or help would be most appreciated. Thank you in advance. cherz.
