Lucky escape!

Post by Dandock » Sun Sep 16, 2018 5:11 pm

Found one of my favourite extra wide spaces in the car park under Waitrose in Bath yesterday only to find on our return this jerk up my tail. And it wasn’t like space was an issue at the other end. Just a selfish couldn’t-care-less prat!

Thankfully no damage and lucky, I think, cos no one can possibly judge it that well.

I can understand the side by side issue which is why these extra wide spaces are so good. I could have parked a Harley behind them!

These people shouldn’t be allowed out!

There's always an idiot. I use the extendable towbar for almost exclusively that reason. They will be more upset than me if they decide to drive into (and possibly over) the ball.

All sounds a bit like the Clifton Down / Sainsbury multi-storey; most of the owner drivers using that car park rely on the “thunk” of metal on metal to determine whether or not their door is open enough to exit the vehicle .....😂

At the Cricket Club. It's open to the public and you can usually find a wide single depth space too.

Best to avoid match days though! ⚾⚾

Thanks. Yes, not as convenient for us but we know it and have used it before.
