PIOG: Where do you like to park?
June 16, 2014 at 10:57 AM

When in a big parking lot, do you strategically choose a parking spot?

Some people park closest to the entrance, some the exit, some like to use that opportunity to walk a bit and park farther away, some like to park where there aren't many other cars to minimize potential damage, some prefer to park at an angle rather than straight in...

I park nearest a cart return. I don't really care how far from the door, as long is there is a cart return nearby! (preferably right next to me so I can put the cart in the return and unload from there)

I often see people sit in a parking lot waiting for someone to back out so they can have a closer spot.  Of coure if there are usually hundreds of other spots available but they choose to sit and wait for that one, backing up traffic! I hate that. GRR

    I don't care honestly. Walking is good for me, I'm not waiting for a spot to open up. If it's at night I want to be under a light.

     I like to park away from people.....everyone makes fun of me because I'd rather walk a mile to get in the store than to park up front. Everyone wants up front, and people around here are completely careless. I've had carts bust my tail lights out, I've had people hit my vehicle, I've had them park so close I couldn't get in, I've had people dent my car with their door.

    Not worth the few steps saved, to me.

    My mom parks far away so she can walk for exercise and to protect her car.

    Handicapped parking spot!

    My mom has a thingy for it and since we all are in one vehicle it's where we park.

    My.friends logic was the same, till she came out of the mall and someone hit her brand new SUV. Lol

    A mom teaching her newly licensed kid how to parallel park beside my.friends vehicle.

    I've Seen it happen more then once.

    Quoting Madelaine:

    I usually try to park next to a cart return. Even if it's in the back of the parking lot. I don't mind the walk. I started doing it when my son was born. It was just easier to have the cart return next to the car. I could put him in the car and be right there and not have to walk away to return the cart.
