I have a neurotic parking problem

It is "Fathers" day, at a very busy gambling casino, but I found a very good spot to park. Wife thinks I am nuts.

looks like a pretty shitty parking lot for a busy casino

I have no time for you "penny-less jackasses with jr. detective badges"

Your not alone when it comes to parking. People these days! They just don't know how to respect other people's property.

its called ding avoidance paranoia
sometimes i will leave a place if i cant find such an end spot- i guess many MB enthusiasts feel this way

If I have to park next to anyone (ugh!), I park at a slight angle to allow them more room. Here is a device you can put on the doors when you park the car!

If I can't get the "dream spot" (near the building but with one side of the car next to a parking berm, i opt for the "nightmare spot" (farthest away) where no one except me ever parks. think of all the extra calories you are burning...

Yea, the othert day I parked at the back of Wal-Mart a space away from an S65. I parked so I could look at the S65 . People around here are pretty good about not dinging cars.

You know what I hate though. When we park far away, like maybe 10 spots away. And someone just has to park right next to you, when there's 10 parking spaces between you and every one else.

I do the very same thing, and not only with my Benz - any of my other cars too! If you can't find something like you showed us, always try to park beside something nice and expensive - I don't think you have to worry as much about their manners.
