This is certainly an interesting thread.

I have had this very thing happen to me (parking so close I couldn't get in my car)
and the temptation to retaliate in some way or another was huge, but I think it was just cowardice that prevented me from doing something I would have regretted later.

Yesterday we went Christmas shopping. While sitting in the Jeep finishing a cigarette, this gal in her late 20s-early 30s pulls her hybrid minivan looking thing into the space facing me, one to the left. She pulled in really slowly and had her friend watching the curb on that side obviously afraid that she was going to hit it. She was being so cautious and left a huge amount of space on her own side that I started making comments to my husband like "If she can't drive the damn thing, she should let her friend drive or park it" and other things of that nature. No, she couldn't hear me.

She opened the door, then opened the side door, and pulled out a wheel chair. She slid into it, and went in to do her shopping.

She obviously needed all of that extra room to access her chair.
Man, I felt like an ass!

Maybe the guy who parked too close to the truck, needed the extra space for some reason. Who knows.

What your buddy did was something that many of of have thought about whether we will admit it or not. Hopefully the majority of us find ways to resist the temptation to go through with it. There is a part of us that roots for him because he did that bad thing we would have liked to have done and the other part of us that thinks how angry we would be if it were our vehicle that was bashed up.

Very well said. Put the story into a different perspective. I know the temptation has been strong with me before, i'll admit.

I have noticed that when I drive the Lotus, it doesn't matter how far out I park, some asshat has to park next to me.
If you use two spaces, that guy might be me I park my DJ in the half a space left by those "two parking space" guys all the time, and always between the lines... I don't touch em, not even a little, I let them do their own damage, and a surprising number do the exact same as the OP's friend did... yank open their door and slam it on my $400 1971 Postal Jeep...

(to clarify, it isn't worth $400, but that's what I paid for it originally...)

I don't understand your comment. I am not trying to be a jerk, I just don't know if you are being sarcastic or serious.

What annoys me more than banging some idiots car when they park too close is when some idiot parks too close to you and bangs THEIR door on yours... when I was 16, I did everything I could to keep my truck in perfect condition. I was parked perfectly between the lines, came out to find a car parked nearly on the line and a huge ding in my door.

Instead of getting revenge hurting their car...I decided to watch for them every day until I could figure out who it was and then plot some kind of revenge (I was a kid back then, keep in mind). Of course, when I finally figure out who it is...I realize it's a kid I used to hang out with years before who I still was on decent terms with and it was apparently an accident. Was I still pissed about it? Kind of...but I just shrugged it off as accidents happen. Granted, I'd prefer an apology or something just so it's been acknowledged.

Bonus of a lifted Jeep with steel rocker guards: Most car doors are the perfect height (or lack there of) to hit those chunks of steel on the side of my Jeep. No dings for me.

I just park far enough away to hopefully avoid the idiots. A few more steps is better than the grief.

That being said, a co-worker had some of these that he kept in his glovebox...NFFS...but funny as crap.

I get very frustrated when people park like that too, but that could have been an elderly person. A sick person. Ect. If I caught someone doing that on purpose I'd beat the living shit out of them if it was a women and if not my husband would. I don't recommend he try that around here or he would look worse than the car door did..

I go to IU Med-Center in Indy once a month and park in the Parking Garage (I,v done this for 25 years) In the last year I see they are inforcing the parking lanes . If your over the line they charge you double . The dam spots are very small .

If anyone in Granite City, IL owns a Jeep and is a member of this forum who knows the owner of the 300, you dont need to worry about protecting his identity. You gave enough clues.

As for the guy who parked so close that they left no room to get in..... did you ever once stop to think maybe it was an elderly person who cant park for crap but meant no harm?

Given your friends overwhelming stature, he should have waited it out and addressed it. If the driver was some punk trying to be a jackhole, ok then.....lets the cards fall where they may. If it were an elderly person who innocently parked incorrectly, I am sure his temper would have subsided.

Maybe?

Jacked ... We were not in town, and I don't believe that anyone on this forum is very close to me except one person who is from around the area. But, us being at school it's doubtful it was an elderly person, but I still DO NOT Condone what he did... I called him today and asked him what he felt about it... he said he shouldn't have done it but it was like a last straw for the day... some other issues with his family had happened earlier in the day that I didn't know about until just this evening.

I'm not sure where you learned law, but the OP is not at all responsible for what his buddy did. Maybe you seen an episode of "Fresh Prince of Bellaire (the uncle was a judge)" and became a TV legal expert, but the OP cannot in any way be responsible for the action of his buddy. He can feel bad, and probably should, but to scare him and threaten him with legal consequences is almost as egregious as his buddies actions.

I'm not even close to being Perry Mason, but I have a common sense knowledge of the law, which is not the case for everyone.
