PARKING PROXIMITY

Dear Annie:

Please share your thoughts on this topic, which has been annoying me for some time.

I always find people who park their cars right next to me as if there is no other space, when in fact there are plenty of spaces available.  Why do people want to park directly next to my car when they don’t have to?  I find it so intrusive.

Thank you, and I appreciate your input.  — Annoyed by Intrusive Parking

Dear Annoyed:
You could take a compliment that they want to be close to you.  It is plausible that people tend to park next to other people’s cars because they like the idea of social cohesion in public, or they might associate social cohesion with safety.  They might think that parking next to another car reduces their car’s chances of being broken into or crashed against.

At the same time, I know exactly what you mean.  If I pull into a parking space in a fairly empty lot, and another pulls in next to me, I find it slightly annoying.

    I was totally surprised to find that green eyes are rare! Who knew!!! I empathize with the person that feels invaded when people park close. I’ve noticed that parking spaces are kind of like “hotspots” in the home – once you put something on a table or counter, other items seem to join it. I frequently park away from other cars, only to find myself surrounded by other cars when I return. Ah, human nature!

      Green eyes – Who knew, is right. I have green eyes – my youngest sister also has green eyes – Jennie our middle sister has blue eyes.

      Your “hot spot” analogy is thumbs-up TRUTH! Ah-human nature! Thanks, Carol, we appreciate your great comments (!) which totally add to the fun of the episode!
