I fear...

Highschool parking lots. I just went to pick up my sister, and this girl was backing up at like WOT, I swear I thought it was going to be an accident! Luckily, she braked an inch away after I honked. It was my fault for not being more aware, but man, she came out of nowhere! Yes, that was the highlight of my day.

A couple of years ago, my family and I were in our car about to leave Costco's...then this shopping cart comes towards us and slams against the front bumper. We look up and there's like a family, waving, laughing, and smiling at us. It was jacked up.

Believe it or not, I haven't seen ACO yet. I am retrieving it through legal means right now though.

College parking lots aren't any better, especially garages when people drive the wrong way 30mph down one way areas and almost hit you head on and then shrug it off.

Id have to go with nikki.. my college parking lot is a survival of the fittest. Man people will kill you for a spot. And it doesnt matter how tight, how far, how close you are to the next car, they'll take the spot. And if your lucky, you wont get a ding or scrap.

At college in the parking lot i witnessed the worst driver I have ever seen in my 27 years on this planet.

I pulled into the painting building lot and there was an open space next to me. I am just about to get out of my car when I kid in a grey primer looking mid 80s subaru wagon pulls into the spot and bam hits my door with his car. I run out and he does the whole sorry sorry routine. We exchange info and I move my car to a different spot. Well the kid did the same and for some reason chose another spot a few down. He takes a tight turn and bam hits the other car going into the parking spot and the car rocks. He then backs out and hits it again, pulls into the spot and walks into the building to class in plain site of everyone.

Bad driver

Here's one:

I saw this little old lady who didn't realize that she needed a card key to get into our lot...So she keeps driving, and the gate makes this aweful scraping noise and she makes this orange mark from her hood to her roof and down the back of her formerly white car.

I'm thinking motor skills OK, but executive function not so good.

I live in a small appartment complex with a private lot, and two of the spaces are right next to the exit onto the road. I'm sitting at the exit waiting for traffic to clear when I see out of the corner of my eye a white Jetta backing up right towards me! I layed on the horn and she stopped (barely missing me)...

I pulled out onto the road and she pulled out behind me... when we pulled up the road and were waiting at the light she had to have left like 200 feet behind me (nothing to fear from me thought, I didn't yell or scream at her!).

But wow, who would have thought that when you back up objects will come from BEHIND you! :mad:
