We've all been witness to a parking idiot. Whether at your local shopping mall, the megaplex movie theatre chain, or at the grocery store, their before you sits some idiot who has not mastered the ability to correctly park their vehicle between two yellow lines. Perhaps it is a SUV, a tacky yellow humvee, or a bombed out cutlass supreme that looks like it was scraped off the bottom of some farm pond, parking like an idiot knows no economic or social boundaries. Yet, I have found a solution to help the driver realize the error in their ways. iparklikeanidiot.com. I saw this site last week and couldn't resist ordering a few of these bumper stickers. I like to think of it as a therapeutic way to let the driver know everyone's frustration with their parking deficiency while having a little bit of fun in the process.
What's nice about the stickers are that they do not have a sticky backing like your average bumper sticker. So you could place one on someone's vehicle without damaging the paint job. Though I realize it would be nice to vent my frustrations on some idiot who couldn't park correctly by placing one of these stickers on their car and then snapping a picture of my handy work to save for posterity, it would be an unrealistic goal. First, it would require me to have a bumper sticker on hand at all times. Second, I would also have to carry a digital camera with me in order to document the event. Third, it could probably be considered vandalism, and with my luck, I would get caught by some mall security rent-a-cop or threatened by the toothless owner of the badly parked el Camino in which I had just placed a sticker upon. The legal disclaimer on the back of the sticker says it all.
So for now I will keep these stickers on hand, saving them for friends or neighbors that understand my humorous attempt to let them know that they park like an idiot. But if I am out and public and see something like this, I may not be able to resist.
