Went to Tesco with Son to get some stuff and a couple of Litre bottles of Captain Morgans for Christmas.
The car park was nearly empty, parked near shop obviously.
Got back to car and putting things on back seat and a car pulls up.
He was parking right next to us when he had the whole car park :lol:
I shut the door and he pulled in.
They got out the car and he did say "cheers" so not all bad.

He has a whole empty car park, so he has to park next to me while I'm putting stuff in the car.

I was at tesco the other day and selected a space, leaving an empty space between me and a woman that was putting stuff into her car, started reversing and the woman who had just shut her car door walked her trolley over and put it in the end of the space i was in the process of reversing in to. I was livid, had to get out the car to go move the trolley out of the space, she had just put her car in reverse (typical woman driver not reverse parking) so i went and put the trolley behind her car, she had to get out and move it while i was giving her some choice words, she didnt even look at me or engage in any sort of rebuttal- probably because she realised she was totally in the wrong and she wouldnt have been called a stupid C word if she hadnt been a stupid C word

the ignoring you and not looking at you bit winds me up more than the do something silly bit mostly big mercs with lady drivers do the ignore you bit

last guy to do similar to me i put cones all around his car and tied them all up together so it would take him longer to get them out the way

on the french toll roads a wrx scooby cut me up so at the next toll i put all the cones in front of his car
it took him at least a mile to catch up again i was in a 1.4 renault 5 auto non turbo slowmo

Why on earth would you reverse park at a supermarket (or any other carpark when your shopping for that matter?)? What a PIA to load your shopping? :loco:

I have forward parked for over 20 years, and never had a problem reversing out of a space (as my neck is able to rotate, and my eyes also move beyond the forward direction). Everyone generally loads bags into their boot (I put them on my back seat as they're less likely to roll around), so why make your luggage compartment as inaccessible as possible? :loco:

Reverse parking is a technical requirement of driving standards, yet it is employed as a stipulation in certain situations (generally business environments where it is considered more accidents happen from reversing from a parking space, following a lengthy meeting) however, if you are not capable of concentrating on the requirements of driving, inc. reversing, you should not be behind the wheel.

It is easier to reverse into a tight space than drive in forwards.

The space was on a covered walkway not back to back with another space. Also i often only get 1 or 2 bags of shopping max so put it into the passenger footwell

No, just because of where the pivot point of a turning vehicle is. The vehicle can pivot around to be reversed in straight with less room needed either side of the vehicle. No matter how you look at it, it's just they way it is. The vehicle turns approximately around the rear axle so the front end moves in an arc and requires space each side to do so.

That's not to say that forward parking isn't easy, in fact the only time that reverse would work while forward would not would be when you are reversing into a spot so tight that the doors won't open.

I always reverse park though, unless using my wife's car with the rear wheelchair lift. I carry my shopping around to the back with no problems. I prefer to drive out. It's also marginally better for fuel economy and mechanical wear as the maneuvering is done with a warm engine rather than a cold one.

Do you always carry an abundance of cones with you, how do you tie them together, are they disposable, how much do they cost, and where do you get them from?

Apologies for all the questions.
