Genius! I should do that one day when someone decides to park super on the line. What ended up happening? Do you know? Did they scratch your car, did you leave before they got back, after, etc?

I just parked it a few hours ago. Will update if they broke any windows

If I'd had my window marker in the car I would have just written an offensive note on the rear window. But I didn't, so this had to do.

Great parking by the Beemer driver !

Friends of mine got ticketed for parking nose-out in a CA parking building though ... I hope it doesn't backfire.

Sven, you are my kinda guy!
The other day I had a guy in a minivan tailgating me while talking on his cell phone. So I dug the banana out of my lunch cooler and held that to my ear... as I cruised along at the posted 55 mph.

*Note to self*

Buy window marker to leave messages on poorly parked cars (major fails only)
Keep my car in beater status.... *just incase*
Never leave home without my banana phone!

But I would rather write it on their window with a window marker so they have no choice but to drive home like that.

I don't live in the city, so I don't see a lot of bad parking, but the notice ideas are great . Maybe someone should source a giant banana phone toy to screw with people behind us with a cell phone stuck in their ear .

I'll just leave this here
