People are peculiar
Take yesterday, for instance. I had occasion to make a trip to the supermarket - having forgotten a few things on Friday. Being a Saturday morning, the place was busy so I drove to a quiet part of the car park. I've gathered too many scratches and scrapes in busy car parks to worry about walking a few yards extra. I parked in a space where the one in front was empty - although the ones each side of that were occupied - so that I could simply drive off, always assuming tht nobody parked in that space before I returned. There were two (or three) empty spaces to my right and three or four more to my left. When I returned, somebody had parked right beside me, so close that the driver would have had to squeeze out of the door. The rest of the empty spaces were still that - empty!
