Car Park Legend - man takes six years to use every parking slot

Wed Apr 28, 2021 9:48 pm

A man from SE London has added “spice” to his weekly shopping trip by embarking on a mission to user every bay in the supermarket car park. Six years later, he’s achieved his goal!

He’s the antithesis of me - I get annoyed if my usual parking slot isn’t available! :lol:

How many times did he leave his Wallet in the car ?

What a very English goal to aim for! :)

He was smart to focus on this project instead of Brexit. He might well be the last sane person left in Great Britain.

I can just see this..
Wife: why can't we park close to the store
Husband: as he grabs his spread sheet, 'I already parked there, there is a parking space out here in the boondocks I haven't parked in yet" besides you need the exercise.

That’s a different take on recording train loco numbers and airliner registration marks.

This really feels like a kind of OCD to me. I'm with scbriml I have a spot I like and hate if its taken.

I stopped driving to supermarkets in the UK. They made the spaces far too narrow, as if they were in cahoots with dent removal companies.
