That is close and I absolutely hate that, too! I deliberately park far away, more than enough room around me and for some reason, I always come out to some piece of crap on four wheels parked so close I need a can opener to get into my truck! Here's a site where you can upload pics of them and leave a notice on their vehicle if you like. In order to share the link yet keep with the family friendly nature of this site, I obviously changed the spelling, but just spell it all out in your browser.....

Since I have been back in the States, I purposely will drive to the front of the store drop the wife and munchkin off. Drive to the end of the parking lot no mans land it never fails I come out and have cars/trucks parked next to me, to make it worst I usually do the samething find the spot next to the curb(minimizing the chance of a ding on both side) and park inches from it leaving plenty of room. I dont mind so much when its another custom ride or luxury car figure the guy/gal is thinking the samething. this person cares about his/her ride. Scariest places to park/ outside the daycare for me kids just swing the door open...lol..

Yeah same here I park away from others with lots of spaces and eventually someone decides to park right beside rather than in the open. Maybe they can judge the space without being beside someone. My son says, park beside and expensive car, BMW, Mercedes, Lexus etc and they won't ding you that leaves on side to content with.

PS:Zackman, you got to clean the snow off your window, lights etc People can't see you lights and you can't see squat.

Ok, looked like a drink though LOL

I use a push broom at home to clear the snow. It a lot easier and faster. Brush is for when caught out and about.

Standards way south of me and East. Been there but not the best yard. They don't have much if any newer than 2000 if you're looking for parts.

The one I have has soft bristles and I don't push down on it anyway just its on weight does the trick moving off the soft powder. I use it mostly on the other Jeep since the Compass get to go in the garage its not a requirement.

But yeah keep the scratches down.
