Corners are a savoir. I always try to find one, because I can get my truck as close to that edge as possible. And they always seem bigger then a normal spot.

There is one simple soultion for those of us with a 4x4 and some disposable income. Lift the truck so damn high that all they can hit is rubber!

I yelled as I went to get in.."GEEZE I HATE IT WHEN SOME RETARD HAS TO PARK RIGHT UP ON YOU WHEN THERE ARE A BILLION OTHER PARKING SPOTS IN THE PARKING LOT" I yelled to my mom as she go in...the guy pulled his door close to him as he could while he was standin inside it...I right away began to look for marks on the side of my truck...when I didn't see anything I looked at him and told him he was lucky! My brother tried to write his name in the dust...OMG!!!! wtf!!!!! seriously?! I couldn't believe it...he was no longer allowed to be near my vehicle...he was 17!!!!! ugh!!!!!
I told my b/f kids the next time I catch one of them running their fingers down the side of my truck they will be walking....
Not to mention the parents in our apartment complex not watching their kids...my b/f's brand new jepp...some kid ran into it with their bike...put a nice dent in it....
I very loudy said 'IF I EVER CATCH A KID RUNNING AROUND HERE LIKE THAT...OR COMING AT MY TRUCK WITH A STICK AND THEIR PARENTS AREN'T PAYING ATTENTION...THAT STICK WILL VERY QUICKLY TAKE UP RESIDENCE IN THEIR *BACKSIDE*' I haven't seen kids playing with sticks int he parking lot since...

I HATE PEOPLE!!!!!!

I am on the verge of putting a spike strip around the body of the truck...some nice 6 inch spikes will work nicely I think..you agree???
bwahahahahaha you're my hero!

I don't understand it.

Sorry for the thread jack here, but here recently my brother was going to school in his black mustang (slick car) and some kids waiting for the bus were screwing around and throwing rocks and one hit his car. He immediately stopped, backed up, and got out and found their mom. Let's just say he's lucky he didn't pop a vein in his head that day. Well, a couple days later, I'm driving up to the bank, and see a couple kids playing outside, and I remember this is where my brother told me he got hit with rocks. Well, I kept a close eye on them and nothing happened. But, the moment I looked away, all I heard was *ping*...I whipped my truck around and pulled right up in their drive way, stormed up to the front of their house, and proceeded to lay in to this lady, because she was obviously stupid enough to let her kids throw rocks at cars. I told her I was about 2 seconds from calling the cops since it had happened to my brother too, but I didn't have time to mess with it. I went and looked at my truck...it got a nice little dent in the tailgate. Gah, I was so pissed.
atta boy!!

I wish i had been able to find the tools that egged my dads last truck...mind you i'd probably be in prison right now...

My friends call them "corner pockets" as i'm always there. they always know how to find me, as i'm in a corner spot

even with my caliber i enjoy them. if there is a curb, i'm almost touching it and as far back as possible to try and protect my car as much as possible. i'll check on my car several times a day to make sure there are no looney toons around my car.


I've only had 1 time that i had a dent in my car...well it was 3 at once somehow. i just about kicked in teh car next to me when i found it, but it was my buddy's car, and i know from the position of his car and the dent(s) that it was impossible

of like this:

I agree! I need to make some of these, but I think I will make them as stickers so they have a hard time getting them off!

I wouldn't move this thread at all... it'a a legitimate rant, one which I have had myself on several occasions.

yah know...it isn't just store parking lots...my dad had a beautiful Inferno Red Ram. He had it all chromed out ( not my personal taste but...to each his own ) it was beautiful, being a truck driver my dad didn't run his Ram a whole lot as he was on the road. In 3 years he only put about 10,000 kms on it. Some DB scraped against him in our apartment parking lot with a company half ton truck. Scraped the front bumper down to raw plastic. My dad was heart broken. He repaired it as best her could and complained about it to the apartment manager. Being that it was too 'dark' for the cameras there was no proof. Until the guy hit my little Escape. I waited for him one morning and asked him what his problem was...I told him if he couldn't handle the vehicle he was driving maybe he ought not dive it...good thing he had a 'how's my driving' sticker on the back. I proceeded to report him to his company right in front of him. After that I didn't see that company truck in the parking lot anymore, but I did see the guy leaving in a little KIA Rio! LOL but my dad was pretty upset and sold the Ram. We have since moved out of that complex...
Oh wich leads me to this, WHY oh WHY!!!! do people insist on breaking in to your vehicle JUST for the sake of breaking in and ransacking your vehicle, while they take NOTHING!!!! happened to me last winter...all they took...nickles, dimes, and pennies!!!! left all the big ticket stuff....GRRRRRR!!!!
