I regularly work at two offices, and in both places I park in a position where I know I can get back out easily without having to make more than a single reversing manoeuvre! I don't usually have a problem with someone else taking "my" spot because there isn't usually anyone else in at my usual starting time of 7:15am...

Since I work in downtown area of the city local policy declares that maximum allowed time to park is 2 hours/per day. If you brake the rule penalty is very high so as a job perk we have private parking lot. Places in this lot are numarated so everyone know whoise space it is.

Al previous locaction i looked for firs available lot that didn't require a lot of manuvering when reversion out from parking lot. This was very important requirement since driving/parking culture in Croatia isn't very good so on ocasions it can happen that someone block your way out and you are stuck until next day

I park about a 20 minute walk from the office - why? To avoid punitive parking charges of approximately £130 per month! And it gives me a little exercise twice a day, and chance to catch up on my favourite podcasts. (SGU for one)

Back in the days B.T. (Before Telecommuting) I parked my motorcycle in the garage, in the half-stall left when they added the Handicapped spaces. Occasionally I would find it in use by the building maintenance staff, and have to park in a "triangle" spot. Everyone at work knew it was "my spot" and would comment on the "new" bike there when I would switch my ride (I owned 4 and borrowed 1...)

Now that I telecommute from many states away, I just park my behind on the chair! And the bikes are gathering dust for the moment. Soon, my pretties, soon we'll be together...



Here there be dragons...,

We have three car parks at work, if you're early you get in the one closest to the building (a rarity for me!), reasonably on time you get in the middle distance car park (not too far away, and my normal carpark (in which I have my fave space)) and then there's the super late car park of shame. Hang your head...

I ride a motorbike to work, and we have a special area for bikes so choice is somewhat limited.

But I park with a wall in front and to the left of me to be courteous, but I I love that a dent in the tarmac guides my front wheel into the same spot!
You're right too.. I do grumble if someone parks in "my spot"!

I park at the far side of the car park away from the river as it floods twice a year!

I always try and park in the same place, this place is always in a corner, next to a wall(s) (if possable) as these are usually slighty larger spaces.

I do notice that other people (some for the same office as me) have started to try and nick 'my' parking space (yes i'm talking to you with the blue Audi TT).

I like to look after my car (ok so i'm totally anal about my car and how clean and tidy it is) so i tent not to park next to scabby cars at any time.
