Worst parking in Britain as motorists rage at ‘arrogant’ BMW-driver
Of the great many things with the potential to grind people’s gears, road rage is right up there.
Perhaps close behind is shoddy parkers. Few things rile a Brit behind a wheel more than noticing a fellow motorist has paid little regard for the parking spaces marked out in white.
Usually offending parkers are guilty of leaving a wheel or two outside the demarcated space. Sometimes drivers leave their rear ends jutting out, making it difficult for cars to pass.
However one British driver has paid such little attention to the rules of the car park, a Reddit user has shamed them and the responses are hilarious.
The picture, shared under the title ‘Whose parking job was this then?’, shows a relatively empty gym carpark in Cheltenham.
There are a few cars parked in the area, presumbaly left there by gym users or staff. However, slap bang in the middle of the car park sits a black BMW at a jaunty angle.

After the image was put online, Reddit users shared their thoughts about the careless parking.
One said: “Vanity and arrogance my friend. And there seem to be more and more of them about since Covid I’ve noticed.”
Another added that they’d come across more and more anti-social behaviour: “I’ve noticed more selfish behaviour in recent years. Able bodied people parking in disabled bays at the gym I use is my pet peeve.
“We’re talking about sted heads in their 20s here. It’s shameful that people have stopped giving a s*** about anybody else.”

A third user wondered whether there was more people acting in this reckless way due to the influence of video games: “Among the other reasons for this stain on society being more common, I think the lack of enforcement from doing something wrong lets people live like they’re in a computer game with no real repercussions.
“Everyone is so scare (sic) of offending someone nowadays that they don’t say anything.”
Such a view was shared by plenty of people, with another adding: “I think it’s this. I believe the vast majority of us only need to be told once or twice the acceptable responsible way to act in public and that’s that we’re good to go.
“But then there’s people like Dips*** Mcicantparkalot here who clearly need a policeman or traffic warden to be a regular occurrence in their life for them to not act feral. Covid gave them a lovely echo chamber to reinforce their selfish ways and nothing has shoved them back into being a normal person yet.”

Not everyone was quite so serious about the matter: “This is where the sat nav said he had reached his destination.”
Another chimed in: “I’d argue that’s abandoned not parked haha.”
Incredibly there were even people with some degree of sympathy for the errant motorist: “TBF it looks like potentially there was a car parked between him and the one in the spot judging by the gap but still a d*** move.”
Someone who had seen the car park full in the past came to back them up: “I can almost guarantee this is what happened. Every time I have been past this car park it is full with cars making their own spaces because there arent (sic) enough for the gym.”
However the person who posted the image assured users it was 7:30am when the picture was snapped and the car park was empty.
