So...

My focus gets worse every day...

The big delivery truck that drops off all of the food at my work ALWAYS has to park right in between me and another car because he doesn't want to walk far. He gets within inches of my car every Friday when he comes in to drop the food off.

I had to go on a delivery this morning so I told him he should probably move so I could get out, but he said I would be fine. I slowly roll back in neutral while he is somewhat guiding me and we both forgot that there is a step ladder to get into his truck.

It was my fault.... but... yeah... here are some pics.



Right after it happened.




Popped it back into place when I got home right now, but of course the dent is still there. So yeah, my focus gets uglier and uglier every day.

It sounds like you don't want to walk very far either. Since he's the one unloading a truck, wouldn't it be being considerate for you and the other car to park some where else on the delivery day? Just a thought.

When it's busy I'm on a set time limit to deliver all my food. It takes like twice as long to carry $400 worth of food to the other side of the parking lot. He doesn't really have a time he needs to be done by and when he finishes he always just chills around for awhile. Still my fault, but whatever....

Whenever I go someplace I park the farthest away I can get just because of people being dumb.

I always park away from people if I can I hate a-holes who park on top of me and ding up the doors and fun stuff like that. Have you ever noticed you could be out in the booneys and still somebody decides right next to you is the perfect place to park wtf?
