:wtf: is this shens??? :mad:

I come out of work one night, and find this on my windshield:




I normally park as far as possible out from the building, behind the blue line, and I typically take up 4 spots. It's nowhere near ANY handicap spots, and far enough away where no one else wants to even THINK about parking, 'cuz they're too lazy to walk.

I've been doing this for 3 years now... up 'til this year, I even parked CROSSWAYS, taking up 6 spaces, so I could point the windshield at the setting sun (because of the sunshade). This year, I made some reflective side window shades so I could keep it parked pointed south. I've even had the store manager and the HR manager comment about my parking habits, but never negatively, and the HR manager said that it wasn't a problem, not that they could do much about it, unless I parked inside of the blue line (employees must park outside of the line).

Then I come out one day, and find this .

As far as I know, the only place the police have ANY jurisdiction is over handicap spots. Any other spots in a PRIVATELY OWNED parking lot, they can't do diddly shit about--otherwise, they'd be ticketing our customers--both regular and the ones with trailers or large trucks--our vendors, our delivery trucks including the flatbed semi, and the semi's that like to park there. Not to mention the occasional RV.

So, what say ye, Auto[M]ay? Am I justified in calling the city and pitching a fit? Or have the police truly become Combine Overwatch, and turned this place into a fascist terror state??

This. But maybe not so harshly.

If you take up more than one spot you can be ticketed. Two spots I can see them overlooking but 4 is kinda douchey don't you think?

If you're parking that far away where no one else would want to park, then there's no point taking up extra spaces for a buffer.

so basically an F150? that seems like it should easily fit in one parking spot.

Your car will be more noticeable and be a victim if you take up 4 spots instead of just one.

The ticket just proved the point.

please call and pitch a fit.... just so I can laugh when you come back here kicking and screaming because they called you a dumbass

also despite having a lot of stuff on there about handicrapple parking, none of it pertains to your case.... you are only being punished for taking up 4 spots, as you should be.

Also this.

I can't even tell you how many times I've gone to park somewhere, and then spotted a douche bag and gone out of my way just to annoy them.
