2009-12-18 11.09.01.jpg There's a Walgreens near my office. It's in the middle of the urban jungle, but there's a small parking garage next door for customers of the store. It's hard to see the layout from this photo, but when you pull into the garage there are two spaces on the right, a wall, three spaces, and the back wall. On the left there are four or five spaces with a dividing wall. In this photo you can see one of the spaces on the right, the dividing wall, and then three spaces behind it. You can also see a part of one of the spaces on the left, and the dividing wall that hides two more spaces. The dark blob in the back right corner of the garage is my car.

This is, admittedly, not a large garage. And yet, most of the customers are there for 15 minutes or less, so it doesn't have to be very big. This morning I tossed my car in the garage briefly while I dropped off a prescription on my way to work.

When I came out, someone had parked smack dab in the middle of the garage, blocking in all of the cars in the back stalls. It wasn't that he had no other options-- there were two empty spaces in my section, and a few others elsewhere. There's no chance at all that all of the spaces filled and then emptied during the five minutes that I was in the store.

I looked around for the owner, then waited a bit. When he didn't show in a few minutes, I pulled out my phone to snap a photo. Just as I did, the owner came out. "I'm leaving now."

"Good!" I kept composing.

"I said I'm leaving now."

"Thank you. I'll be able to get my car out and get to the meeting that I'm now late for." I snapped the photo.

No apology for the inconvenience, no remorse, nothing. Just indignation that I was photographing his faux pas.

Dear Mr. 6KJR767: You are a flaming jackass. Have a nice day!

Perhaps not the wisest course of action when the target object is blocking your getaway.

I would have called someone to come park behind him.

One of my many invention ideas is a fake ticket book where you can write dooshbags like this a ticket and leave it on their window. I suspect I could sell a few of them, but it would undoubtedly result in road rage incidents and fights.

I used to have one.

My invention idea is a pen that sort of airbrushes out brake fluid.

I once got a little passive-aggressive note for such a crummy parking job. They had them pre-printed, and just slipped their little gripe card under my windshield wiper. It wasn't a ticket, though.

This was a few months after I got my license. I've done a little better job of parking since then.

Wouldn't it be cool if there were some kind of reputational database on the internet? You could find out his name (assuming he is the owner of the car), then post the evidence of douchebagness. Someday maybe some employer will reconsider hiring such a jerk. Perhaps google images could serve that function.
