It is a wonder no one parked by the side of it, all there on its own. That is what normally happens If i park on my own, miles from any other car.

That's what I expected on my return Dave. That's why I also parked next to a lamp post so at least one side doesn't get whacked 😁

My favourite parking space at the hospital
- there is a post either side so no one can park close to you.
This is the only parking space like it in the whole car park!

Your post reminded me of a similar incident a couple of years ago at Good hope Hospital in Sutton Coldfield. Got back to the diesel in the car park and could not believe my eyes. Parked next to mine was a B*W. It was that close, the person driving it must have had to get out on the passenger side. There was not enough room to even start trying to get between the cars.
I would say around 3-4 inches at most. I thought of going to see the chap who sits in the car park office and asking if he could get the number put out on the tannoy in the hospital, but had not got the time because we had another appointment elsewhere. I am ashamed to admit it , but I did try to get between both cars, but unfortunately my keys were hanging out of my pocket and they scratched the front wing on the other car. Shame really. I had to put the seat right back on the passenger side and struggled to get in the driving seat across the middle console. The trouble is I have not got full bend in my left leg due to an accident in the 70s, so it was very awkward, but I managed to get the car out but had to pull my mirror in before I got out. It is what is called inconsiderate parking. The car was nearly new, so I hope he wondered how his wing got scratched.

I wouldn't lose any sleep over it, he/she caused the problem in the first place.

I was in my local Tesco and came out to find the door mirror dangling by the wiring . . . . I was furious. I went into the shop and asked about CCTV, they looked but the rain was driving straight at the camera lens, couldn't see a thing. "Secured" it with gaffer tape until I did Parker's temp repair. That was so good it lasted months before I replaced the mirror.

Tis always a shame when ones car gets dinged. Found a scrape when cleaning off muck a couple of weeks age; at first I thought it was a smear in the dirt but when washed the smear was evidence that someone had slid a bumper along the door. Fortunately it doesnt seem dented but will need some TLC with T cut or something.
