Gannu - though the poster idea is great but i wonder whether the sarcasm would be actually understood by the junta in office. It might end up inspiring more drivers to park incorrectly and then reach out to you to claim the "award"

The bad parking is actually carefully calculated parking. Nobody can park either side, so nobody can scratch or dent or knock with their doors on this guy's car.

I'm sure many of us can sympathise, but it still does not make it right to use two spaces

I totally agree with you on this. Actually I have seen in my old office, where a Jaguar XF & an Audi used to be parked in the same way so that the body does not get scratched. Not to mention the owner of the building would sometime park his Ferrari or Lamborghini in the same way, even though there would be a guard all the time to monitor the car. And, believe it or not, in the absence of the car, the Guard was required to monitor the empty parking space.

That's an excellent observation - I now notice that he's perfectly centered the car on the guide line, which supports your theory. D-bags would park like they just drove in, at an angle.

Another one of HR jokes--

HR Exec to Employees -- this year we will play a simple game to decide who deserves to get Hike and who does not.

Employees - Okay!

HR Exec -- If I say the name of fruit, Go left. If I say the name of a colour, go right. If you get it right, you get the Hike.

Employees (Excited) - Okay, Sure! Got It.

HR Exec (Shouts) - Orange!!!

The joke would be on him if bikers filled up the spaces each side

Got as a WhatsApp forward.

A Tata Nano breaks down on a roadside.

A man in a BMW 750Li stops to help Nano driver.

"I will tow u to d next service station, but if I drive too fast please flash your head-lights"

They start up slowly but only a km or so down d line a sporty Porsche car speeds past at 150km/hr.

BMW driver's ego hurt,

He totally forgets about little Nano towed behind & races after the Porsche.

Just as all 3 of them fly & tear through a speed trap,

the traffic cop radios his HeadQuarters:

"Calling all stations :: u won't just believe this what I just saw a BMW & a Porsche racing past at about 195km/hr, with a Tata-Nano right behind & madly flashing its lights to Overtake them.

Hehe yeah. Knowing the folks here I am sure we'll have an enthusiastic bunch doing just that! But here in our company's parking lots, we come across a lot of instances daily - car being parked in a hurry and it ends up parked in a slant, XUV 5OO occupying a lot of 2 when a small hatchback could have also been accommodated, not being reverse parked when a huge notice board says so etc.

Oops! my bad! This thread is so long, its almost impossible to check thoroughly!

Anyways, I try once again! Here I go.

Martin had just received his brand new drivers license. The family troops out to the driveway, and climbs in the car, where he is going to take them for a ride for the first time. Dad immediately heads for the back seat, directly behind the newly minted driver.

"I'll bet you're back there to get a change of scenery after all those months of sitting in the front passenger seat teaching me how to drive," says the beaming boy to the 'ole man.

"Nope," comes dad's reply, "I'm gonna sit here and kick the back of yer seat as you drive, just like you've been doing to me all these years."
