Revenge may not always be the answer, but in this case, it was done just right. Justice has a way of prevailing, and it’s always satisfying to see the bad guys get their comeuppance. The pieces of this puzzle were simple: a foreman, an angry woman, and a couple of other vehicles. Read on to put the pieces together…
A Strange Day at Work
This wild story is best told through the eyes of a foreman who was just minding his own business. It didn't take long before he knew that his day was going to be long, grueling, and challenging. After all, moving construction materials uphill is a hard enough profession in and of itself.
And yet, this foreman had another difficult obstacle to get past — a woman who believe she had the God-given right to keep her car parked wherever she wanted. But eventually, a lightbulb switched above the head of this problem-solving foreman. It's safe to say: he had other plans...
It Was Already a Difficult Job
In another universe, this foreman would have completely lost his patience and called the police in the blink of an eye. Ultimately though, he knew that doing so would just waste so much time during this difficult day of work, and he was already pressed for time.
This foreman had been hired to build a new house. He was no stranger to this kind of job, having performed similar tasks many times prior. But what made this job unique was that the house in question was located at the top of a pretty steep hill. That in itself would’ve made things more complicated than usual. But there were more factors at play here...
Setting the Scene
Struggling to get to the top of a hill via a 250ft footpath is enough of an ordeal as it is. But to have to do this as part of your shift – that is something else entirely. Not to mention the fact that this foreman was expected to carry heavy materials up and down the hill.
The only piece of comfort the foreman could take away from the experience was that there were two parking spots reserved for the project. However, they were at the bottom of the hill, which did not make matters much easier by any means.
The parking spots in question had "No Parking" signs installed next to them to deter any potential illegal parkers. And yet, this did not stop people from trying to park there without a permit. In fact, there were plenty of opportunists around who were happy to take the law into their own hands.
You would think to yourself, "Why would people be so inconsiderate and not follow the rules?" But it turns out that there was a pretty good reason why a specific demographic was taking advantage of these specific parking spots. And it provides the backdrop for why this story came to be, to begin with...
There Was a School Nearby
The reason that these parking spots were constantly being filled up by drivers who weren't part of the construction project was because of the following simple reason. Nearby, just half a block away from the foot of that hill, an elementary school was located.
And while that in itself explained the unfortunate circumstances, it took a bit of time for the foreman to connect the dots and realize that parents who were dropping off and picking up their kids from school were using his parking spots. And certain people in his position would have reacted differently. But this was no ordinary foreman...
He Dealt With This Problem Before
Truth be told, there had been many similar incidents before. In fact, the foreman had already spotted opportunistic parents in the parking spots designated specifically for his construction project. Whenever he saw one of those spots being illegally filled up, he would make sure to handle the situation calmly and professionally.
Unless a truck was parked there and needed to deliver something for construction purposes, he was not going to get too concerned. And if that were the case, he would nicely approach the parent in question and ask them politely to move. And they usually would in an instant. Usually...
Another Random Car
Fast forward to the day that the story took place. It seemed like it was going to be a normal day with its usual share of construction-based challenges. Then, a lumber delivery driver gave the foreman a phone call. He informed him that he was on his way to the reserved parking spot.
So, the foreman proceeded to the spots to see if at least one of them was available to park in. And as he arrived on the scene, he was quietly disappointed to see that one of the spots had been occupied by a random car. But it turns out that it wasn't so random. And whoever parked there was still in the driver's seat.
He Was Polite as Usual
The foreman immediately came to the conclusion that the woman who had parked there was one of the parents of a child who attended the local elementary school. She was most likely waiting to pick up the child after she herself had finished a hard day at work.
The foreman consciously wanted to be sensitive around the issue, so he tip-toed over to the scene, gently tapped on her window, and waited for her to open it. Then, he calmly said hello, introduced himself, and respectfully asked her to move her vehicle out of the reserved parking spot. And then she answered with the following...
A Rude Awakening
It seems that the foreman was anticipating either a simple, "Yes sir, sorry for the inconvenience, I'll move immediately," or a respectful, "Sir, is it OK if I stay here for a few more minutes while a wait for my son?" Either of those responses would have been fine.
But the response that the woman actually came up with completely took the foreman off guard. She simply huffed and said the following: "I’ll just be a few minutes, and your truck isn’t here, take a chill pill, dude.” The foreman couldn't believe the audacity of this woman. And lo and behold, the lumber truck showed up just after she said it.
Some More Sass
Despite the woman's unsavory response, the foreman kept his cool as he was convinced that she would respectfully move her car as the lumber truck had just appeared. And yet, she doubled down on her behavior, rolling up her window in the process and adamantly ignoring him.
The foreman was determined to maintain a healthy dialogue, waving his hand at her to get her attention. Although he stayed respectful, his waving was undermined when she rolled her window down halfway through and yelled a resounding "WHAT?" Naturally, the foreman was taken aback by her rambunctious attitude and wasn't entirely sure how to respond. Until...
She Snapped Back Some More
At this point, the foreman knew that he needed to act a little more firmly to get the woman to understand the severity of the situation. He needed her to move so that the lumber truck could park, not just for the construction but for health and safety reasons.
Not to mention the fact that what she was doing was illegal. His tone of voice grew a little stronger as he asked her to move again. This time though, the woman responded even more dismissively with the following: “Can’t you guys just unload around me? Jesus, it’s not that hard." Something needed to give...
While the woman's poor attitude was really ruffling the foreman's feathers at this point, it wasn't long before this incident inspired him to take action. Suddenly, an idea came to the foreman. As he excused himself from the awkward situation, he walked over to the truck driver and greeted him warmly, as you would.
Then, he asked him to park the truck directly parallel to the woman's car. Not only that, but he instructed him to park it as close to her car as humanly possible. When the driver asked the foreman why, he simply said to him, "No questions asked."
Executed to Perfection
After hearing him say this, the truck driver had an idea as to what the foreman was getting at. He cheekily grinned in response to the foreman and carried out the sneaky instruction. The woman didn't really realize that the construction workers' portable bathroom was already stationed behind her car.
Moreover, there was another car parked right next to the two reserved spots. Clearly, the woman was already surrounded by a fair number of obstacles. It's safe to say that the idea was gradually playing out in plain sight, but the woman didn't see what was unfolding until it was too late.
She Was Oblivious
As the lumber truck crept up next to the woman, it became clear that she was being blocked off from pretty much every side. Portable toilet behind her, the car in front, the truck on one side, and the curb on the other. You get the full picture.
And yet, the woman was completely oblivious to what was going on as she was more interested in facing toward the curb and ignoring the foreman and the rest of the construction workers. She was completely spiteful, and her spite was preventing her from seeing the situation unfolding around her. She was completely trapped and had no way to escape. Or did she?
Calling the Police
The way that the foreman entrapped the oblivious woman would have been enough revenge to take out on her. And yet, this was just scratching the surface of his awesome plan. There was one more thing the guy needed to do to complete his foolproof plan.
He picked up his phone and called the police parking enforcement officers. He planned on informing them about the entire situation. “At this point in time, I wasn’t trying to get her in trouble," he said. "I just wanted a record of why we were blocking part of the street so we don’t get in trouble with the city.”
She Couldn’t Open the Car
While on the phone, the officer told the foreman that they would only be able to arrive in half an hour. That was surely not going to be quick enough for the foreman. The woman would surely notice what was going on at that time. And sure enough, she did.
School was over for the day, which meant that it was finally time for the woman's child to leave and come to the car. As soon as she saw her child, she tried to exit the vehicle to greet him, only to learn that the door wouldn't completely open. She was legitimately stuck and in a bit of a panic at this stage.
What an Evil Stare
It's fair for the foreman to have assumed at this point that the woman would have seen the error of her ways. Maybe she'd consider righting her wrongs and finally decide to make peace with him. And yet, she had the audacity to give the foreman the evilest of stares ever.
It was like something out of a dark comedy. She was stubborn enough to continue to shift the blame onto the foreman. But let's face it — it wasn't as if she could just stay in the car forever. She would need to make some kind of move to put an end to this petty showdown. And so, she did...
A Real Struggle
The woman was really on the edge at this stage of the story and decided that enough was enough. With brute force, this furious mother struggled to open the door against the truck. In this fit of rage, she awkwardly climbed out of the small opening from the passenger's seat and slipped out of the car and through the narrow gap.
She finally managed to get out of the trap that had been set up by the foreman. She angrily got to her feet, took her son by the hand, and put him into the backseat of the car. The foreman just watched in shock with his co-workers.
After putting her son in the car, the woman struggled back to the road and aggressively approached the foreman and the truck driver. They were clearly loving what had just transpired. At that point, she finally noticed just how sophisticated the trap was that those guys had set up for her.
At the peak of her anger, she yelled the following at them: “I’m in a big hurry; you need to move your truck right now so I can go.” It was clear that she was not messing around anymore. It was clear though that the workers were taking no prisoners at this point in time.
Just Company Policy, Ma’am
While the foreman continued to stay cool and collected and simply grinned in a satisfied way, the truck driver came forward to deliver what is arguably one of the best comebacks of the century. “Ma’am in order to unload the lumber off the truck we had to unstrap it," he said.
"And per our company policy I’m not allowed to move the truck with any unsecured load on it." It was as obvious as the day that the truck driver and the foreman were trying really hard to hold back the hysterics, but it was near on impossible, truth be told.
So Many Profanities
As if things hadn't already reached boiling point. Both the foreman and the truck driver were in absolute shock by the words that were about to come out of the woman's mouth. Their jaws dropped to the ground when the rageful lady unleashed a tirade against them, full of disgusting obscenities and words not fit to be heard by elementary school kids, that's for sure.
After a minute or so of vulgar language, the woman concluded her aggressive speech with the following line, “I have somewhere to be!” It was clear that she was in a rush, and this had completely disrupted her day. But it wasn't over yet...
An Officer Arrived
The woman did not have the faintest clue that, prior to her tirade, the foreman had made a secret phone call to one of the local traffic officers. At that moment, the officer had already arrived on the scene and appeared from behind the lumber truck.
And just before the foreman thought her speech was over, she continued to drop profanities and unleash her full wrath against him and the driver. Despite this, he stayed completely calm and just replied with polite words to stay professional and respectful. This would carry on for a few minutes, and the officer just watched from afar.
She Was Still Acting Rude
It seemed that the foreman's nonchalant approach to the situation got the woman even more enraged. You could hear it in her language. The foreman simply said, “Can’t you just pull out around it? It’s not that hard.” To which the woman replied with even more vulgar language and curse words.
Eventually, it got to a point where the lady was apparently exhausted by her own tirade and marched back to her car in a huff. Once again, she struggled to squeeze back into the car through the tight gaps caused by the other vehicles. As she made her next move, the officer moved forward...
Crazy Driver Alert
The traffic officer decided now was the time to approach the truck driver and the foreman to discuss the events that had just transpired. In the meantime, the woman started her car, put it in reverse, and then put the pedal right to the metal.
She turned the wheels a complete 180 and then reversed all the way back, slamming into the portable bathroom in the process. From brute force, she managed to knock the potty over, giving her space to get out of the well-engineered trap. But truth be told, this was just the beginning of her far-from-great escape.
She Hit the Curb
The portable bathroom was still obstructing her way to get out, so the woman came up with another idea on the spot. She decided the best thing to do at that moment in time was to drive onto the sidewalk. So, she put the car into drive mode, put the pedal to the metal again, and turned onto the curb in a reckless manner.
The foreman, the truck driver, and the traffic officer all stood there in disbelief. They couldn't believe what they had laid their eyes on here. What had started off as smiles and laughs turned into three dropped jaws as she moved from the parking spot to the sidewalk.
You would think that the woman had finally managed to get out of the parking trap that had been set up by the foreman and the truck driver. But no. It turns out that she managed to make matters even more difficult for herself.
Despite getting out of the actual parking spot, the woman's car was now stuck on the sidewalk! The child sat there in the backseat, with his eyes glued to his smartphone. All he could do was play his games and try to ignore the chaos that was unfolding around him. And yet, the woman's misfortunes were only just beginning.
Step Out of the Car
At this stage, the traffic officer had certainly seen enough. After joking around a little with the foreman and truck driver, they decided to make their way to the frustrated woman's car. They ordered her to step out with her child.
It would have been shocking if she decided to rebel against the officer too, but she still had a bit of common sense left in her tank. Once she exited the vehicle, the officer put the handcuffs on her wrists and ordered her to sit on the sidewalk. In the meantime, the officer called for backup. And even after this, the woman still had some terrible behavior to display...
She Was in Serious Trouble
While the woman wasn't going to risk anything by yelling profanities at the traffic officer as well, she was prepared to act somewhat immoral in order to get her way. Despite being in serious trouble, she thought on her feet and chose to tell some white lies in order to get her way.
She tried to convince the officer that the foreman had, in fact, not asked her to move. On the contrary, she claimed that they had told her that she could actually stay where she had parked. The woman was sure that she had fooled the officer to her advantage. However...
Not Buying It
A part of an officer's job is to try and detect when suspects are not being entirely truthful to get to the bottom of things. And sure enough, this traffic officer could immediately tell that the woman was fabricating the story to get her own way.
They weren't buying any of it. In fact, they told her that the foreman had already called her to alert her to the scene. They were fully aware of the entire situation, knowing that the woman had been politely asked to move and that she had vehemently rebelled against the request. Clearly, she had been busted.
Write Her Up Now
So, the damage had been done. The woman had broken several laws and was still struggling to escape from an officer, and all that was required now was some paperwork to put this case to bed. The foreman and the driver were providing a second officer with a report.
But the crew was finishing transporting the rest of the lumber up the hill. The truck driver also provided a statement before leaving his truck to go back to his place of work. With just a couple more formalities to take care of, it was just a matter of time before justice was going to be served.
The foreman gave a pretty straightforward account of the aftermath of the whole incident. You would think that some kind of crazy car chase was about to go down, like something out of the movies. But no, the woman ended up getting apprehended pretty quickly.
“By the end of the ordeal, she was arrested, charged with reckless driving," he said. She was also charged with the destruction of property, as well as Driving on a Suspended License. All of this was said and done before her car got towed. But we must not forget about her son. What happened to him?
What About Her Son?
The terrible thing about this story was that the mother simply had to leave her son at the scene as she got arrested and taken to the local police station. A pretty brutal turn of events if we do say so ourselves.
However, it wasn't as if the son didn't have any other loved ones who could be by his side during what we're sure was a traumatic day for him. It turns out that his grandmother, the woman's mother, was available to come to the scene and pick him up. He'd eventually be reunited with his mother. But the story wasn't over yet.
Sometimes, we have to go through the wringer to learn some valuable lessons in life. And this seems like a perfect example of that, especially from the woman's perspective. Truth be told, the foreman never thought that the woman would be so rebellious toward him.
But he accepted that everyone makes mistakes, and this was just a lesson for her to learn. “I think next time she’ll probably think twice about parking in a tow-away zone if she ever gets a license again,” he said. We hope that the woman has grown and is taking it easier since this unfortunate day in her life.
Getting your license is a rite of passage. It is a teenager’s ticket to freedom, after which they can decide where to go and when, and even occasionally get to save up for their very own vehicle. Although parking is an integral part of every driving test, it is unclear how these individuals passed, because they are clearly too creative to park in just any old spot.
Although there seems to be plenty of parking at the edge of the lot, for some reason all these cars decided to take the lead from the pink and red cars who, for some unclear reason, started this whole parking fiasco. The cars are not only parked diagonally, but they are also actually touching each other in places.
It’s like the parking madness was contagious. Hopefully, everyone had their fun and no cars were damaged in this game of parking lot domino gone wrong.
A Stinky Parking Job
It is important to remember that the way you park affects others. You can’t expect to just leave your car wherever you like and not suffer from any repercussions. If you haven’t yet, that just means you’re lucky and that you should learn from the error of your ways before someone takes revenge. That’s clearly what happened to this stinky parker.
This guy had had enough and found the perfect way to make the driver of the back car think about his actions. Kudos to him for doing so without damaging the car.
Double Decker Parking
It is not clear how this car ended up balanced on the Fiat in the first place. It is like bad parking is its own special gymnastic sport. Well, this grey car certainly deserves a medal for creative bad parking.
To end up like this, they must have been taking directions from someone who has really bad depth perception or had faulty parking sensors. Either way, they should call in the professionals at this point, before more damage is done to either car.
On House Parking
When the realtor was talking about parking right on the house, we’re pretty sure this is not what she meant. We’re not sure if it would be better if this was the car owner’s house or a stranger’s house. On the one hand, you wouldn’t want your car and house to be damaged at the same time, on the other, you certainly wouldn’t want to deal with the person whose house you just parked on.
Well, maybe they won’t notice, after all, how many people actually look up at the roof of their house?
This person just couldn't seem to find a regular spot to park in but even though parking can be hard to find, it's best to avoid ponds and marshes.
Unfortunately, this guy didn't get the memo and found himself right in the middle of an over-flooded marshland next to the road.
This car is plain old living in the future. While all of us are still stuck driving horizontally, they are already driving vertically. Unfortunately, the rest of the world has not caught up with the owner of this vehicle, as shown by the no entry sign and by the parking, which is not suited to this type of travel.
We hope this space car wasn’t too badly damaged and can continue onwards, in the hope of showing us the future of sky travel, with more lanes and less traffic.
Not everyone wants to leave their car in a dark and drafty parking garage all day, so this person had the bright idea of creating a window so their car could enjoy a bit of sunshine while they were away. Not only was the car happy to enjoy a bit of sun and a fresh breeze, but other cars got a bit more air too.
The parking garage owners got some renovation work done for free. All in all, this is definitely a win-win situation for everyone involved.
This poor car chose the worst spot, not suspecting that the danger would actually be coming from behind. As for the truck driver went, he didn't even notice the car in front of him, or should we say under him.
How do you even begin to explain what happened here to the owner of the blue car?
Part of the reason Smart cars have become so popular is their ability to park in tight spots. That does not mean they should park where it is clearly forbidden, which seems to be the case here, especially when free spaces can be seen right across the street! It takes an evil genius to construct this makeshift penalty box.
It is not going to be easy to get out of that, pretty much guaranteeing that this “Smart” driver will think twice about parking in the wrong spot again, which was pretty much the whole point.
In this case, carpooling was obviously not the better option. It is hard to understand from this shot, how the car even got into the pool. It must have been dealing with a lot of pressure. It is not easy being such a cliché: a red car has to live up to all kinds of demands that we can’t even imagine.
It ultimately came to the decision that it had no other option than to take the plunge. We are certain that once it is pulled out and dries off, it will see the error of its ways.
Booted Your Tank
Don’t you hate when you bring your tank home and can't find a parking space for it? Well, that's probably what happened to this tank.
With parking so scarce for tanks, this guy parked in a regular parking lot, right next to another car. Now there's something you don't see every day.
Hats off to the person who devised the Post It punishment for this car that's parked where it probably shouldn't have. They must have spent countless hours getting all these stuck on and making sure they were just right.
The result is not only amazing looking, but it gets the point across perfectly. We hope the driver used the time needed to remove these from their car to reconsider where they parked.
Stunt Gone Wrong
Is this a parking lot or a monster truck rally? We have absolutely no idea how these drivers managed to leave their cars in this position, or how they are going to get them out of it. Seems like someone thought they were Evel Knievel and could jump across all the cars in the lot.
When seeing the end result, it is clear that they should have heeded the advice often seen on TV: “don’t try this at home.” Hopefully, they learned their lesson and will leave stunt driving to the professionals from now on.
Owning your own car is the best, and one of the best things about it is that you no longer have to use public transportation. But there is also a downside, driving in traffic can be incredibly stressful, and never mind dealing with other drivers on the road.
Seems like the owner of this car couldn’t take it anymore and decided that they were sick of driving on the roads, they were going to take the stairs instead!
The law about not parking in front of a hydrant exists for a reason. In case of fire, that hydrant will be needed to put it out. If you get caught, you will face a stiff fine, but another option is that there actually will be a fire. In that case, your car windows will be broken by the fire department to get the tube through so that they can use the water to put out the fire.
Guess this BMW should have considered all of that before parking illegally.
Grocery Store Car Protector
Driving a classic car is a genuine pleasure, but also a lot of responsibility. The cars are no longer being made, it is hard to find spare parts and not a lot of mechanics even have the know-how to take care of them. That seems to have made this driver extra paranoid about some rain getting on their antique car.
It's a good thing this supermarket provides special car protectors to keep your old car safe. That’s what this plastic booth is for, right? It couldn’t be for shopping carts, now could it?
All the Space in the World
Isn’t this parking job everyone’s secret dream? Haven’t you ever imagined driving into an empty lot and taking up four spaces? It is enough to make you feel like the king of your own domain, and will definitely cut down the chance of anybody sideswiping you.
But there is a reason that it remains a fantasy for most people, it is unbelievably selfish, against the law, and lets everyone know that you are a big fat jerk.
We won’t lie, getting home often feels like an emergency, especially after a long day at work, but that doesn’t mean that the owner of this car was entitled to park so close to the exit. They should have looked up and seen that they were blocking the door.
We hope no one needs to get out in a hurry because they won’t be able to do so due to this person’s inconsiderate parking.
Between a Rock and the Rest of the World
It is incredibly annoying waiting for your turn to get out of a crowded parking lot, particularly when some drivers try and take shortcuts and cut in front of you. Looks like this guy was trying to beat parallel parking by parking out the side.
Just because you have a four-wheel vehicle doesn’t mean you can park it anywhere, as demonstrated by this car parked on the grass.
Do you remember Tetris, that old computer game where you had to fit different shaped pieces together? This looks like the parking version of that game, although the big truck clearly failed by parking across three spaces. The clever driver of the mini car saved the game by fitting between the lines perfectly and getting sweet, sweet revenge.
That truck is going to have to do some difficult maneuvering in order to move around the car before it's ready to go.
Police Car Pile-Up
We don’t know the history of this incident, but we have to assume that the red truck landed on top of this police car on purpose. Was the driver trying to keep from being arrested? Because although it is true that the cop car cannot chase them in its current condition, the red truck isn’t able to move either.
The cop who is writing this up seems cool and collected, leaving us with the feeling that whoever did this has already been apprehended and that he’s seen worse.
Parking in the Snow
This cop couldn't stand the sight of a snowman that was in his way and just had to make it known that snowmen are not welcome. With so much parking space it was clear that he only had eyes for that snowman.
The only upside of this accident is that there was only one snowman involved.
Car Vs. Tree
In the epic battle between nature and machines, nature is usually the one taking the beating, but in this case, although a few branches of this tree were damaged, it seems like it is the clear winner. Although a few questions about the incident remain: what were they even fighting about?
And looking at the road makes you wonder, how did the car even get so far up in the tree? We’re not looking forward to the rematch.
Rush Hour in Real Life
There used to be a board game called Rush Hour in which you had to move around cars and trucks to let the red car get out of the parking lot. There was usually only one correct way to move each car in order to win. This looks like a crazy real-life version of the puzzle game, but there are no winners in this game.
Instead, the board is filled with angry drivers who seem to be driving in circles in an indiscernible pattern. Maybe what they really need is a giant hand that will guide them and finally get them out of there.
Better Than Everyone
Humor and sarcasm are a great way to get a message across, and they are also emotionally satisfying. Here is the perfect example in which instead of an angry confrontation, the message was delivered perfectly with a cleverly worded note. After reading this, the owner of the car will have no doubt what his fellow residents think of him and his selfish parking job.
We hope that he learns his lesson, and if not, at least we all got a little laugh out of the whole thing.
Hapycar – Is It Really?
Backing into a pole is one thing, but backing onto a pole is a different story altogether. They’re going to need some help getting out of this jam because just driving away from this position is not recommended.
Although maybe this car just needed a quick check under the trunk and the driver was only cleverly getting it into position. In that case, good job.
A Strange Parking Space
Out of all the spots where this guy could have parked... but he clearly didn't care at all. No way, José.
There is no way that a shovel is going to get him out of this mess and the worst part is he'll still have to get out of there and possibly cause more damage to his car.
Between the Lines
The really amazing thing about this parking job is how straight they got the car. This would be a perfect example of parallel parking if they, you know, did not damage their car from both ends.
Watching this person wake up in the morning after a clearly wild night and trying to maneuver out of this spot would be both sad and hysterically funny. Good luck buddy!
Those Best Buy return policies must be really strict. Look what this one customer had to do just to make it in time to exchange their child’s Christmas present.
Luckily, there was a parking spot available right in front of the counter. Now that’s what we call smart shopping.
Always Obey the Signs
This roadwork was still taking place, which means that signs and warnings must have been around when this guy decided to park right in the middle of it.
Clearly, the owner of this silver car was just too busy to pay attention and couldn't be bothered to notice that he landed himself in a bigger mess than he bargained for.
No Car Is an Island
Here is another car owner that felt as if the rules didn’t apply to them. Although the street was being cleared for repaving, they decided to park there anyway. Now the people in the neighborhood are left with this ugly spot that wasn’t repaved.
We guess they should count themselves lucky that the city workers did not decide to repave around their tires. That would make them think twice about their choice of parking spots.
Parking on The Edge
We don’t know how long that person was parked there or why local authorities did not simply have them towed, but the current situation is almost unbelievable.
It's quite remarkable that with such a heavy car, he didn't fall into the water but one thing is for sure, he's going to need help getting himself back on the ground.
Nothing Else Will Do
Apparently, this man was just NOT going to find a parking space out of his way and park a little further. Whether it was laziness or an accident, he actually seems quite good at parking considering his car is on top of another.
As long as he doesn't try and get out of the car using the door, everything will be fine. We can relate, sometimes (literally) anything is better than parking far.
They’re Not Wrong
The owner of this car must be some kind of genius. Although it is crystal clear that the sign did not refer to this kind of green vehicle, there is no real way to prove that the parking in question was not reserved for it.
We bet any police officer who tried to give this guy a ticket, would have a really hard time explaining the offense. To avoid this happening again they would have to rephrase the sign, but we’re not quite sure how.
A Tight Fit
This van really wanted to fit in this little corner, he parked too close to the wall, it almost looks like he may have scratched his car.
Now the question is, how to get out of this situation without damaging his car? He might need a crane or even a tow truck.
Parking for the Reading Impaired
If you have trouble comprehending simple instructions on the road or in parking lots, maybe you should not be behind the wheel at all. Although it is more likely that the driver of this smart car decided to ignore the sign and leave their car in the motorcycle parking.
While it is small enough, it's still considered a car and should not be parked in the motorcycle bays.
What is truly amazing about this parking job, except obviously that the car is upside down, is that the vehicle does not appear to be damaged in any way. Leaving us all scratching our heads to figure out how it got there.
Was Dwyane Johnson nearby doing some light morning lifting? Is this a prank gone wrong, or maybe right? Either way, it is parked completely fine, except that it’s going to be quite difficult to drive it away.
Sorry, Not Sorry
We assume this was not on purpose but an accident by the absent-minded driver who drove into this rock. We just hope the driver went to get some help after they realized how they parked.
But why would anyone leave their car in such an awkward place? Surely there must have been another space they could have found.
Break on Through
This driver must have booked the wrong parking space cause their car barely fits in this garage. but he wasn't going to let that stop him and decided to park there anyway.
With a lot of trial and error, he made it work and parked most of his car undercover. He just needs to remember that he cannot reverse, otherwise, he'll end up in the ditch.
Special Deal on Vans
This supermarket may be used to surprising its customers with interesting deals on food items and drinks, but this time we’re pretty sure it was the owner and workers themselves who were surprised when they found this can lodged into their storefront!
As bad parking jobs go, this one is ranked pretty high, both for how far off the street the van is.
Get Me to the Church on Time
No one wants to be late to church on Sunday. Just the looks and raised eyebrows are enough to make even the most self-confident person feel uncomfortable. The driver of this car must have been feeling the pressure and got distracted.
Otherwise, we can’t explain how they missed this big round ball. They decided to just leave the car as-is and deal with it later.
Judging by all these pictures, it seems like cars crashing into houses is a more common thing than what we had previously believed.
Either the car was going so fast when it crashed through the fence, or the driver was so tired of looking for parking that he thought the best place would be right on his doorstep.
This fella just popped over the cars thinking it would be totally alright to squeeze in there. Obviously, their spatial judgment is seriously off as there is no way this car could actually fit in.
Let's be honest though. It's not like whoever did that seemed particularly concerned over what happens to other people's cars. It must have been a real pain getting out of there.
That Escalated Quickly
It's Monday morning. You're rushing to work and you think to yourself," getting out of the car is just too much of a hassle." The natural step is just to go down the stairs, in your car. No need to actually exit the vehicle. Surely those stairs are wide enough to take an actual car.
By the looks of it, the dude just abandoned the car at the bottom of the stairs and that was that. Now it's someone else's problem.
Beach day for this gang didn't work out to do so well. Parking a little too close to the shoreline is a really big no-no. As you can tell, a wave can come crashing down and instantly drown your poor car. At least it didn't get washed away. Not that being buried in the sand is any better.
Next time just park a little further inland so that when you leave, you actually still have a car.
Sink or Swim
Some cars get accidentally washed away by a strong wave or a gust of wind. Sometimes heavy rain can get just send cars swimming down streets. Sometimes, however, you just get a dummy who happily drives into a pool. Like in this case.
We're not sure if this is a drunken night or someone terribly misjudged that still water for solid ground. Either way, that car is sitting deep in somebody's pool right now and it'll probably stay there forever.
Driving on the Train Tracks
Driving on the tar road is so mainstream, why not drive on train tracks and see if you get to your destination even quicker?
As this photo will show, that's just not a good idea and will only leave your car damaged beyond repair.
You know that thing when you park your car over a baby tree stump and then forget about it for roughly 50 years, and then the tree continues to grow around your car? No? Well, this guy does. Apparently, one bad decision all those decades ago has produced a very interesting image that you can still see today.
We would love to know what happened. Was it a result of a drunken night in which you totally forget where you park your car?
When you can't find parking spaces, the best thing you can do simply is to create them yourself. This guy found a "crack in the system" and thought it would be ok to bulldoze his way onto this island that was not meant for parking.
This man might have to reconsider his genius plan and think about his life choices thus far.
Get Me Outta Here
"Better out than in I always say" was not the Shrek motto this man was going by. How he managed to fit his car into this parking spot, we will never know. This kind of parking takes a special set of skills and we would seriously love to know the thought process that went into this. We also would love to know the genius thought process that it will take to get him out of this.
They may have to do the lol "roll over" and accept a few dents and scratches on the way out. It's possible that this individual has gone through quite a few cars in his life.
Bad Luck Bobby
Sometimes the world is just against you no matter what. This poor fella parked in this space outside this building onto wet concrete. Did he not notice, that the ground below him wasn't set and still moving?
Perhaps we're being too forgiving because it seems impossible that anyone can be this stupid. If he did knowingly park here, then perhaps he is better off without a car.
Thank You, Really
Looks like this one didn't quite get the "please drive safely" memo and went straight for the rock instead. Too bad. There is clearly a reason for this terribly passive-aggressive sign. Don't abide by it? You'll learn your lesson!
They should pair the toppled-over car with the sign. Perhaps that will send a slightly stronger message.
Another case of the "I didn't see." We get it, driving a truck isn't easy and perhaps maneuvering around freely is a little trickier than it is normally, but surely you saw this bright red fire hydrant in plain view? Perhaps you thought it would be a good idea to rest your truck onto it as if it was a leg? We are running out of excuses. It doesn't quite make sense.
The irony is that with that kind of parking, this driver is certainly prone to accidents and may very likely cause some explosions. In which case, it's good that he parked on top of a fire hydrant.
This really re-invents the concept of parking. If you ran out of space on the ground, was this the next natural "step" to take? Obviously, it would be flying into someone's poor window.
We're also not quite sure what use that ladder is there. How exactly do you plan on getting that down?
The idea of actually entering the parking spot so you can park your car is apparently a foreign concept to this person. Where do the borders of the parking lot actually end and where do they begin? This driver has defined those boundaries for himself and taken the liberty of leaping into the nearby ditch. Clearly, this person has no concept of space.
Let's put aside the fact that on exiting, he may fall out of his car. But hey, whatever makes your life easier, buddy.
You Shall Not Pass
The employees at this supermarket sought revenge when this terrible person thought it necessary to take up two parking spots. To teach them a lesson, they took all the shopping carts available to simply entrap the car! Now there is simply no escape.
That'll teach 'em! Hopefully, this individual will think twice the next time they plonk themselves in the middle of two separate parking lots.
Revenge of the Statue
If you're going to leave your car in a strange area, make sure you do so away from any potentially dangerous objects. Someone could do some terrible damage. Kind of what they did right over here. Clearly, this person got angry enough for them to throw a giant statue right onto the car.
Do they deserve it? Hey, who knows? Who are we to judge? I'm sure whoever did that probably got rid of a lot of rage.
This Is The Perfect Spot
This tree did not see that car coming and was totally run over and destroyed by one thoughtless driver. Honestly, how did he not notice it or the concrete blocks?
This is probably one of the worst things you can do to your car without thinking of the consequences.
I Am the Law
In South Africa, the police make their own traffic rules apparently. This cop thought it was totally ok to park right over a crosswalk. Not ideal. Does he get into trouble with that? Or do certain officials get a special exemption when it comes to certain parking spots.
We certainly don't want this cop to get away with it. Hopefully, another policeman will stop by to give him a ticket. It does however beg the question. Where will he park?
Over The Edge
Easy there, buddy. If you're trying to accommodate someone else behind you it may very well backfire and your car will go flying onto the guardrail. We doubt that is actually your reason, we're just trying to give you the benefit of the doubt. You probably just don't quite know how to park.
That could result in some serious damage. Next time, you need to park while on the highway, wait till you reach a better area, and find a space that doesn't involve a guardrail.
Just a Quick Run to The Convenience Store
When you just run into the 7-Eleven to pick up some milk and eggs and don't even think about exiting your car before you actually enter the store in the first place. This definitely gives a whole new meaning to convenience.
They should turn the 7-Eleven into a drive-thru to avoid this kind of destruction. Alternatively, people could just park their cars outside of the store before they actually enter it. Just a crazy idea.
Sometimes you need a visual aid, like a stop sign or a red traffic light to tell you when you can't go any further. Other times, you need actual objects to stop you from driving to convey the message. Smashing into a giant pole is generally a helpful enough clue for stopping.
While it worked, according to the damage, it looks like this driver may have struggled a little bit with this barrier because that shows quite a lot of impact. How fast can you really go in a parking lot?
Talk About Accurate Parking
Parking can be hard for some people — even for those with small cars, like this mini cooper. Despite the small size, this driver managed to park right in between two parking spaces, almost perfectly split between the two.
If only they cared about others the way they care about their well-groomed dog, they could have easily parked within the lines.
For most car owners, parking in a crowded lot is one of life's biggest stressors. Car doors flying open, out of control shopping carts, reckless drivers. It's a mess.
That's in no small part due to the fact that so many people completely disregard even the most fundamental rules of parking lot etiquette. Like this guy who didn't even park halfway into the parking bay!
Not Trying at All
Look, pulling into a parking spot at an awkward angle happens. When it does, straighten out, or the poor person who parks next to you will be petrified that you’ll hit them on your way out.
This guy was so petrified that someone might scratch his SUV that he took up two parking spaces.
With a parking bay that huge, it should be easy parking within the lines and yet, here we are. For the sake of this argument, we are going to say that this guy parked this badly on purpose.
He definitely had enough space and the pole right next to the car could have given him some indication of how much space he had!
Not Even Close
It sucks when you can't find a decent parking space. Sometimes the only place to park is over on the other side of the lot and that's way too far. This guy was not having any of it and decided he'd just park over the stairs.
We're not sure what happened here, but if we were to guess, we'd say this guy wasn't trying to park, he was clearly trying to annoy the other drivers. Why else would he land up here?
Why Would You Do This?!
Despite the many empty parking spots in this parking lot, this driver somehow could not park within one space and still managed to take two parking spots.
Parking across multiple spots is begging to get keyed by someone who doesn't care about your car.
As if this parking fail couldn't get worse than taking up four spaces, it's in an almost empty parking lot! Here's a tip to remember, an empty lot doesn't make bad parking good.
If you ever find yourself parking across multiple spots, you should definitely not be allowed to drive.
Parking and driving shouldn't be considered two separate skills. If you can't park, then you can't drive and might want to get your driving license checked.
Some drivers could not care less, like this guy, who shamelessly parked like this right in front of the store.
No Man's Land
Parking-lot parkers come in all shapes and sizes, like this person who purposely parked in no man's land where there are obvious white lines.
These solid white lines are used to indicate kerbside parking, pedestrian and bicycle lanes, not parking for cars!
Some people legitimately need to use those extra-wide parking spots up front. Other people simply park really close to the handicapped spaces to avoid getting their car dented.
These people are the dregs of society and should probably learn the rules of etiquette when it comes to parking.
The Sideways Parker
This happens more frequently than it should in a civilized society. The Sideways Parker displays a complete disregard for parking stripes.
This guy isn't a rule-breaking rebel, he's a moron who needs to learn how to park properly.
Typical Pickup Trucks
This pickup truck driver knows exactly what he's doing, which is putting his big red truck somewhere everyone can see in a display of dominance. That's how he signals his grandeur and enhanced abilities.
Obviously, he's completely clueless that his actions are only effective at warding off any romantic interest from a fellow human.
Honestly, this one's the absolute worst. Not only can uncomfortably close parkers not follow simple lines, but they also have zero respect for personal space.
How they managed to open the door on their way out of the car is a mystery. The nerve.
The One Who Always Backs in
This driver probably thinks he's so cool, saving time on their way out from everywhere. It could be a fast-food restaurant, the office, or even the mall, the only certainty is that they took the extra time upon arrival to park like this.
For someone who can back up into a parking spot, he sure cannot park within the lines.
How Did This Even Happen
The parking lot can be a terrifying, lawless place — even more so when it's nearly full, and finding that perfect spot may not pan out. Which is probably what happened here.
The only feasible spot this mini cooper could find was right next to the tree. If we didn't know any better, we'd say that wasn't even a parking space.
Is That in the Lines?
Looks like this guy forgot to pull up his handbrake, which meant his car could roll out of control and land over the edge of this parking lot.
Forgetting your handbrake is not only negligent, but it can also be incredibly dangerous. Thankfully, though, nobody got hurt, but
On the Curb
For everything a curb is, it's not a step on which it's OK to park. Anyone that would willingly drive their car onto the curb a) has no clue what the words "curb rash" mean, and b) is perfectly comfortable showcasing his or her egregiously bad driving skills.
And that kind of lackadaisical "oops, oh well" attitude is not to be trusted.
The Tailgate Blocker
It's actually pretty rude to block someone's tailgate. If the owner happens to come out of a store with the kind of bulky items that make owning a truck a necessity, they suddenly have to lift their stuff over the side of the bed instead of using the tailgate.
The Tailgate Blocker doesn't care, though — never even thought about it, really, because there is no world beyond their own.
