Terrible Parking Fails That Would Make Anybody FuriousBy Jennifer Snow
The only reason to buy a car is to make travel plans as convenient as possible. Sure, you are going to experience people with questionable driving skills and traffic jams that don’t seem to end. Despite all these issues, there’s one more infuriating problem that gets on our nerves in an instant.
Parking a car should be relatively easy as it is part of the driving exams you need to take when applying for a driver’s license. It doesn’t need to be perfect as long as they are parked properly. Prepare to scratch your heads as we are going to showcase some of the worst parking fails that will make you question each driver’s intelligence.
And The Best Parking Award Goes To…
How hard is it to follow the yellow lines while parking your car? Seriously, this is only the first slide on our list and it’s making us mad already. The parking space isn’t even narrow, so maneuvering the car should be fairly easy.
To the person responsible for taking the photo and giving the driver a parking contest award, we salute you. We understand the frustration and this is probably the best way of calling out the person who doesn’t know how to park.
Mind Your Surroundings While Parking
Is the owner of this car preparing for a possible flood or strong hurricane? Were they punk’d by some teenage kids? Or have they received a parking lesson that they will never forget? The car was perfectly wrapped, and you can clearly see the parking rule they violated.
The driver parked over two spots, an act which is considered a crime in parking etiquette. Good luck unwrapping your car. It looks like they even wrapped up the antenna!
The Princess Parking Has Arrived
Lucky for this car and its owner, the one who commented about their parking skills was mild-mannered. We can’t further elaborate on why no one is allowed to park in this zone. What’s so hard about following a simple rule?
Okay, there might be two sides to the story, but still, judging by the picture alone, you can tell that the driver thought that this blocked-out strip was the perfect spot to park.
You’ve Messed With The Wrong Neighborhood
We often hear the phrase, “bury the hatchet,” which means agreeing to certain terms and making peace. According to the person responsible for sharing this picture, the neighborhood was irate about how this driver parked his car.
They were spurious because it seemed the driver thought he could do anything he wanted as he was driving a luxury car. Regardless of what continent, country, or state you are in, there’s a golden rule when you are a visitor in uncharted terrain, and that’s to be polite.
A Bad Look For Jeep
You often hear from petrol heads that a true man drives a stick. Really? What’s manly about this? The inability to follow simple parking guidelines? How can the driver not see the other cars that are parked properly?
Does he have extra money and that’s why he thinks he should be entitled to park in two slots? Well, if that’s the case, paying for the towing company will not be a big deal for him. Hopefully, Jeep won’t lose sales due to this customer’s bad parking.
Consider This Your Final Warning
This is an ongoing problem around the world wherein some people don’t know what common courtesy means. If you see a parking space or garage, it is common knowledge not to block it. You don’t need any warning signs stating “do not block the driveway” for you to do what’s right.
This garage owner must have had enough, and by the looks of it, this is not the first time his car was blocked. Good luck with that monster truck.
Do Not Park In Front Of The Fire Hydrant
If you feel sorry for the owner of this car, then you are part of the problem. We are not saying that what the firefighters did was right, but the protocols are as clear: never park in front of a fire hydrant.
Based on the picture, this might have happened in the mid-90s due to the design and style of the cars. This tells us that bad parking is a problem that has been with us for decades.
Look, a Mercedes Benz! This is a top of line, luxury car, and not everyone can afford one. Still, that doesn’t give you the authority to create your own parking area. This driver has managed to block five parking spaces with just one car.
Instead of other drivers destroying this beautiful car, they just returned the favor by trashing it. Trash parking deserves some trashing. We hope this was a rude awakening to whoever owns this majestic Benz
Two Chained Wheels
As the years progress, more and more electric and small cars are being produced due to their distinct advantages. One common advantage of small vehicles is their ability to park in the tiniest spaces.
According to the backstory of this picture, this parking spot actually belongs to somebody who owns a regular car. The owner was so upset when he saw the small car parked there again that he went and chained its tires.
Welcome To The Internet
Even drivers who are beginners will agree, this is a bad parking style. The driver is only two steps away from executing perfect parking. However, for some reason, they just opted to do it their way. Unfortunately, this was not his lucky day.
Enraged by the insensitivity of the driver, the person who shared the post took matters into his own hands. Clearly, he must have understood the law because he could have damaged the car, but instead, he took it to the internet.
This is a friendly reminder to all drivers (and that includes us) that the warning signs are in place for a reason and not just for decoration. The person who parked his car in this area knew what he was doing wrong but still proceeded to do it.
Whoever did this might have warned the car owner not to park there, but evidently, he was not listening. Instead of putting out the normal “no parking” signs, they made sure that the owner of this car learns his lesson.
A Friendly Reminder From Your Neighborhood Superhero
Seeing a car not parked properly is cringe-worthy. Having your garage blocked by another car can make you lose your sanity. However, it is nice to see that some drivers still remain kind, despite the debacle that they are enduring.
Rather than completely humiliating the parking skills of the person involved, he provided a friendly piece of advice. However, if this happened in any other neighborhood, the owner of the parked car might be crying already.
Beware: Tiny Car Owner
This is the second time that a small car owner has been involved in a parking fail situation. As stated before, a lot of people are highly interested in small cars due to their distinctive advantages. Parking won’t be a real problem for them, or that’s what they thought anyway!
Did the driver not notice that he was blocking the walkway? The residents must have been angry as they took their time surrounding the car with a makeshift box, complete with a handwritten sign to make their intentions clear.
When Karma Hits Hard
This could have been avoidable if the driver followed the simple rules in parking their car. We don’t know the backstory of this image, but we can sense the rage and fury of whoever is responsible for pouring paint onto this car.
It looks like the car was parked on a sidewalk which probably triggered them to do this. What makes it even worse is, they poured paint with different colors. We hope this is covered by insurance.
Parking Instructions 101
Here’s another well-mannered and patient petrol head on display. To think that his car was blocked by another vehicle – this should be enough to make him furious. However, in a surprising turnaround, he took his time to educate the other driver regarding the issue of blocking their driveway.
We are praying that we get to meet more people like this. However, we also understand why 90% of the population would go crazy if this happened to them. It truly is infuriating when thoughtless people continuously block your driveway.
Rage In A Poem
Remarkably, this is the third time in our list wherein people were able to control their temper and not lose their cool. Instead of taking matters into their own hands, they spent some time describing their feelings about the way the other person parked.
The words used here give us an idea of what they were feeling. Still, they were able to control their emotions and didn’t even utter a single curse word. We are impressed!
Another Parking Award Recipient
If we didn’t zoom in, it would look like the car was the grand prize from a game show. Well, it has confetti, a bunch of balloons, and it was decorated thoroughly. However, this is not an award that you would want to be involved with.
The backstory of the picture is that there was an emergency at that time, and the emergency vehicle was having a hard time maneuvering through this area. After the emergency was dealt with, those who’d witnessed the drama decided to decorate the car and let the owner know exactly what they thought of their terrible parking.
Please Be Syrup
As seen in the picture, the person who did this to the car must have had enough already. What provoked them to leave such a subtle message? Well, have a closer look. The car is almost in the center of the road.
The owner of this car will be hoping and praying that the substance used to write the message is syrup. If it is what we think it is, then this is a nightmare that they will never forget.
The sarcasm in this message is on another level, and we can’t stop laughing about it. A lot of you might be wondering who Helen Keller is. Well, she is an American author, disability rights advocate, political activist, and lecturer. She was also blind.
You probably get the joke now. Rather than telling the driver harsh words that might offend them to the point of pressing charges, they got their point across in a way that is relatively lighthearted.
A Funny DIY Parking Violation Ticket
Now we completely understand the statement that all geniuses have a little madness in them. Don’t you just admire people who can be creative and at the same time informative in stating the obvious?
Imagine spending time on your laptop creating a DIY parking violation ticket to inform the person involved how dismayed you are with their parking. The last sentence of this parking ticket is one of the funniest we’ve read for a long time.
Giving New Meaning To VIP Parking
Yet again, another driver has problems following the yellow mark as their guideline in parking their car. To be fair, the owner might have been in a hurry and just did it his way since the parking lot wasn’t all that full. Regardless of the reasoning, this is annoying.
It takes less than five minutes to park your car properly, especially in a wide-open space. Luckily, the sarcasm crew was present and they weren’t shy in letting this person know what they thought of their parking style.
The Conspiracy Theory Of Shopping Carts
We tried to check the backstory of this unfortunate incident. However, we were unable to find out how it happened, why it happened, or who made it happen. Upon further investigation of the picture, the car appears to be properly parked within the white lines.
There’s no clear indication that the car violated any parking rules. However, one of the parking attendants must have been so annoyed with the driver that they decided to surround the vehicle with shopping carts.
Trash Parking 2.0
Another common misconception for car owners is, once we see a space, we automatically assume that it is a good parking spot. Even if it has warning signs, we tend to ignore them and proceed to park.
This vehicle owner will now fully understand why parking beside the dumpster is a big mistake. There’s a reason why it is called a dumpster – this is the area for dumping trash.
Mother Nature Has Spoken
The owner of the badly damaged vehicle must have been furious. It is no secret that mother nature’s fury is incomparable. Yes, we might be living in a world where advanced technology is taking over, but nature can always overpower us if she wants.
Due to strong winds brought on by a typhoon, the trees on this street toppled. We know that this isn’t a laughing matter, but amongst all the parked cars, one was only badly hit. We feel bad for that poor driver.
Teamwork Makes The Dream Work
Finally, we are going back to the dark side in teaching these lousy drivers how to properly park a car. The white SUV in the middle seems to be parked not only on one slot but three. We could only imagine the fury that the others were experiencing when they saw this, but no need to worry as payback came swiftly.
Annoyed by what happened, this group of drivers worked as a team to barricade the white SUV. Justice served!
The Birth Of A Movie Star
We are pretty sure you’ve heard this phrase “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” Judging by the note that was written, although the person was annoyed about how the car is always parked, they made the most out of the situation.
They could have vandalized it with unnecessary words, but instead, they used it as practice, developing their movie star skills by sliding across the hood of the car. We love this sarcastic note encouraging the owner to follow suit.
The Potato Army Is Getting Ready For The Kill
We love how some people tackle certain situations in their own unique way. This might not be as threatening as the other pictures that we’ve showcased, but the message is clear. We just don’t understand why people are so insensitive.
Did the driver not see that he was parking in a bed of potatoes? This habitual lousy parker received their last warning, and it might sound funny with the choice of words used to threaten him, but we’d suggest that the driver might need to watch out.
Muscle Car Meets Monster Truck
In this week’s edition of, “Muscle car meets monster truck,” we can distinctly see the problem in the picture. Technically, parking lots are designed to cater to any size, shape, and brand of vehicle.
With that said, the owner of the monster truck decided it was perfectly fine to park diagonally and take up two spaces. The driver of the white car made a bold move – here’s hoping the monster truck driver doesn’t just roll right over the top of the car to get out!
The Parking Awards Keep Getting Better
Ask any driver and they will tell you, parallel parking is the hardest type of parking. This is especially true if you have limited space to operate and direct your car. It takes a lot of patience and practice.
We can’t stress enough what the issue is in this picture. Let’s say the driver made a mistake in calculating the parking space. As soon as they get out of the car, they should be able to notice and fix up the parking. Sadly, they just left it that way. At least they got a cool award out of it.
No One Is Above The Law
This picture proves that the old adage is true: no one is above the law. This parking enforcement officer broke the law, and they received a ticket, just like any of the rest of us would. We wonder if the parking officer was such a stickler for the rules that he gave the ticket to himself?
One way to earn respect as an official is to follow the laws yourself. This is a great example and a testament to the work of parking enforcement officers.
Another Trash Car
Hopefully, this is the last time we discuss cars and garbage today. There’s only one rule for avoiding trashy situations: never park near dumpsters. You need to leave space for the dump truck to collect this garbage, and why park near something that smells awful?
Unfortunately, there are still plenty of drivers who ignore this simple rule. These garbage collectors were so fed up that they wrapped this car up with the dumpster.
Two Way Parker Zip-Tied
All of us have visited a grocery store, and most of them have spacious parking lots that can cater to multiple cars. Some stores have even customized these areas to make sure that their customers are properly taken care of.
Despite all these efforts, the owner of this car chose to be ignorant. Thankfully, a clever shopper was in the area. They zip-tied a trolley to the door handle of the car on the driver’s side.
Is This Covered By Insurance?
Here’s yet another high-end car that was destroyed due to a parking dispute. How it was ruined was scary, to say the least. Whoever did this had been planning it for a while. After all, who just has an axe handy?
As much as we are irritated by the driver’s parking skills, we don’t condone this kind of retaliation. The axe might have hit a vital part of the car’s engine.
Trash Parking 3.0: SUV Edition
When will these drivers learn? Does it always have to end with their cars being vandalized, destroyed, or trashed? How hard is it to follow one rule when it comes to parking near a dumpster? We do feel a little sorry for the owner as the car looks brand new.
If someone has the energy to commit to surrounding a car with trash bins, they must be furious. On a positive note, this is more acceptable than the one that was trashed.
Writing On The Panel
For every well-mannered driver, there are plenty of crazy ones. What happened to simply putting a note on the windshield or confronting them face to face? The owner of the vehicle might need to replace this side panel.
Either a knife, screwdriver, or sharp stone was used to etch those words into the car. Taking somebody’s parking spot is probably going to cost them a lot of money in repairs.
Respect Begets Respect
Having zero parking skills is annoying, but having no sense of direction or awareness of where you are parking is maddening. How many of us have encountered cars poorly parked at our workplaces or in our neighborhoods?
That is basically what happened here. To think that the workers and the owner of the store were still relaxed despite their workflow being interrupted. Rather than trashing the car like the people in our previous examples, they just left a note.
Shopping Carts As A Barricade
This is not the first time we’ve seen a car surrounded by shopping carts. The difference here is that we can see the violation that the driver of this car executed, so we can understand why it inspired some angry shoppers to seek revenge.
As we all know, grocery stores have massive parking lots. There might be times that these allotted areas are full, but that’s not a good reason to park your car in front of the store like this.
Ask the meme gods, and they will tell you, this note is perfect. Fans of Office Space will get the joke immediately. Those who haven’t seen the film should drop everything and watch it now. It’ll be worth it!
The drawing is indeed funny, but we are pretty sure that if this happened again, the bad driver would be hit with something a little harsher than a cute note. What we don’t understand is how inconsiderate the driver is. How hard is it to park in your own spot?
Luxury Car, Awful Parking
This is the biggest issue that we have right now. Just because you own and drive a luxury car, doesn’t mean you have the authority to do whatever you want. We are not judging all of them, but so many people who drive luxury cars think they have their own set of parking rules.
We love that the owner of the Jeep decided to teach the bad parker a lesson. We hope they returned to their cars at the same time. Then justice truly would be served.
