Have You Been Caught in Yakima’s Terrible Parking Hall of Shame?
So a while ago, I was visiting my local Safeway. As I pulled into my parking spot, some guy, who I’m sure was overcompensating for something, pulled right by me and parked his truck. He was already going way too fast for this or any parking lot. The way he parked, I figured, alright, maybe he’s older; he’s pulling (almost) into a handicapped space. The young man hopped out of his truck and went into shop. Nope, not elderly, just kind of @$$hole on the asphalt.
Maybe I’m a magnet for bad parkers, or perhaps I’m just observant. My last job was as a medical courier, so I was trained to always be aware and watch in every direction I traveled. The last time I was in Moxee, I spotted this driver/parker (pictured below). Now, I will give them credit for not taking the handicapped spot. That was nice of them. But, if only their niceness could be a little more parallel in their make-believe spot. That might help other drivers get around them easier. Let alone someone actually needing to use the handicapped spot available.
This next one (below) almost caused a few wrecks right in front of me. I understand people who need to tow trailers. But usually, they’re smart enough to park in a spot away from everyone else. Not right in the middle of the parking stalls, next to a handicapped spot.
Many pictures like these can be found on the Facebook Page, Yakima Terrible Parking Hall of Shame. If you have one that you’d like to share, just make sure it’s your own picture, it’s in the Yakima Valley, and that you blur out the license plate.
