The best parking spot

Post by Paul CS » Sun May 27, 2018 8:07 pm

Is it just me...

...but whenever I’m staying away at a new hotel I alway check out the parking (google earth and street view) before deciding on the hotel. So, here is the perfect parking spot. Made my day!

I do exactly the same, kinda hedge my bets and aim for a large car park somewhere also that has some parking far away from the entrance.

Anally retentive over parking

You know if public car parks had extra wide spaces and it was a few quid more, I'd happily pay. Cheaper than calling out Dent Devils.

+ infinity!

Our Asda is making an effort, EVERY spot has a hatched area next to it giving more room. If only they actually stocked a decent range then we'd go there more often!

Some people simply do not give a flying fish for others possessions.

That may possibly improve with the Sainsburys merger! I hate shopping and Asda is currently the last place I would want to go but its good to hear they are making spaces larger.
