Ilford
Sainsbury's car park

To be fair, the space to its right is of no practical use anyway, as the lamppost is making it pretty unusable. And, better than our local Aldi.
3/4 of the spaces empty, yet some tw@t in a (take a guess) sits there on the chevrons next to the loading approach, engine running, waiting for his missus. Regularly.

The car park is laid out like this :

Sainsbury's is to the rear left of the Suzuki. 90% of the cars park near the entrance, around where this car is. The spaces at the front are a bit of a walk from the entrance of the store.
The space to the right of the Suzuki can be parked on, if you drive in from the opposite side.

Few years ago, I parked like this at a Tesco Extra car park during the evening as I was coming back from work and I was tired / could not be bothered. I came back a while later and saw that someone had keyed my car across two doors.


Meanwhile, I saw a Smart car ( 2 seater ) yesterday parked on the street with a bin bag over it's right window and a missing right-wing mirror. Forgot to take pics of that abomination!
 
Maybe because when he first came in to park the car park was quite full and the previous guy/gal to the left was over the white line.
Maybe the Suzuki driver was popping in to get some bread and fags and some busybody decides to take a picture and post it on the internet where, no doubt in time, it will surface again and get shared all around the globe.
Did you wait for the driver to return so you could ask him/her for an explanation for their actions?
No, because it's none of your business, and in this instance it certainly doesn't impede the passing of pedestrian traffic or anyone on a mobility scooter/pushing a pram.
If you are going to post pictures of peoples parking then at least post ones where they are a danger to other road users. Better still, contact the relevant authorities, such as the store security, or the police if it is on a public highway, and report the incident.

What I find amusing is this has been posted in the jokes section. The only joke here is the OP.

Take a chill pill mate.
Course it's funny. If someone can't park within the bays, it is funny.
 
He doesn't like his car dented by stupid arseh@les opening the door with force and hitting his car.
And he's right.
Anyone opening a door against another car should get 100 lashes in a public square and made to pay for the damage.

It wasn't a newish BMW or an Audi.

I don't need to take a chill pill, most people who know me think I am so far laid back I'm in danger of falling over. As for not being able to park in a bay, I think it's been a conscious decision not to park close to another vehicle for whatever reason. You must have a weird sense of humour.

Who said anything about it being 'newish' or a high end car? Do you think people who drive cars more than, say, 5 years old don't mind/care if their cars get damaged?
As I said, weird sense of humour.

PS I am not your mate.
