Default Parking in left-field...

You know as well as I do that you do it just as much to get a good long look at your car without feeling self-conscious as you do to keep ******** from denting it!

I do it too, but really get annoyed when I get back and someone is parked right next to me in a half empty parking lot!

I don't purposefully do it to be able to eye-***** it all the way across the parking lot, that is just a pleasant aside.

I park wayyyy the hell away when I can to try and dissuade some moron driving his beat to hell 1978 Getoutandpush from parking next to me and flinging the doors wide open without a thought.

I've been doing this for years, whatever I'm driving.

I park out in the sticks at the gym. On the walk to the doors, I always see people waiting for spaces up close and wonder why they're afraid to walk a few extra steps to go to what, the GYM?

Then once I saw a car getting side-swiped by some zombie since the spaces are kind of narrow. This boob got out of their car and went into the gym like nothing was unusual about this kind of maneuver.
