Sarcasm, they say, is the lowest form of wit, but in some situations it's the only thing that will do. Take a poor parking job, for example. We've all been there, we've all seen it, and we've all had the same thoughts. And since anything and everything can be merchandised these days – including our thoughts – it was only a matter of time before someone brought something like this to market. And that someone is Jack Spade, who's offering a set of cards that read "nice parking" -- perfect for sticking under the windshield wiper of particularly offensively-parked vehicles. Of course the white cards, which come in packs of 25 in a black box, leave room to scribble extra words. Like "numb-nuts." Or other words we wouldn't print on a family-friendly website.

      This is nothing new. I remember seeing the same thing at Spencer Gifts when I was a kid. They had cards like this for all sorts of insults including bad parking but my favorite was one that read "You are cordially invited to go *uck yourself."

      Another link for those DIYers...


      I laughed hysterically, although as somebody said, some people just aren't good at parking and I'd feel badly pointing out their flaws unless I knew they did it on purpose or because they were careless.

      These are perfect for NYC where people park either by taking two parking spaces with room to spare, or park their car right next to yours while leaving plenty of space on the other side.

      I like to leave hand-made notes that read: "if you f*ck like you park, you'll never get it in".

      I drive a beat up '92 maxima so i love parking as close as possible to d'bags who take up two spaces. I could care less if they hit my car.

      You should not touch someone elses property, their are ways around it. Also, you can't fix stupid or arrogant people which we have plenty of.

      A fellow at work did something better. He went to a printing office and bought a number of one foot by one foot
      "stick on" sheets (the kind that have to be scraped off with a razor) that said something along the order of you've parked in an assigned spot that is not yours, etc... When someone parked in his spot he would affix the sticky directly in front of the driver's line of sight.

      Always thought that was a good idea. Yeah, it's a slow news day...

        If I came back and saw you putting something like that on my car, you will end up injured. As well as paying to have the item professionally removed. It's the same as spray painting a car. It can be removed, but that doesn't mean it's OK to do it.

        injured or in jail?

        they would send you to jail for putting stickers on someone's car?

        must be lots of angry people where you live
        • 6 Years Ago
        The problem with that is it could be considered vandalism.

        Same with the bumper sticker.

        Stick with the cards: gets the point across without the risk of you ending up injured or in jail.

        Actually where I used to live there was this guy that would always wake up and move his car into my car port because it was closer to the door and he could warm his car up. The only problem with that was he would do it at the same time I would get home from work. Unfortunately the Manager of the complex was useless and wouldn't do anything about it so I went to talk to a cop friend of mine. He told me that If I payed for the car port every month then it was mine, and that I could always "mark" the car so that when I called the tow company they would know what car to pick up. A few dozen paintball rounds later he stopped moving his car in the morning. This might be just a stupid Ohio law thing, but the ruling was in my favor in court... :-)

        I don't particularly consider myself an angry person but I assure you if I came back and saw you putting stickers on my car I would do all in my power to make sure you ended up both injured and in jail, and paying for the professional removal of whatever is on my car as well.
        • 6 Years Ago
        That may be vandalism, but parking in someones assigned spot, so long as there is a sign stating so, is theft.

      here is some good ideas:
      • 6 Years Ago
      The last time I went to the doctor's office, some idiot parked their car so close to me I had /maybe/ an inch to open my door. I wrote... something on a piece of paper, taped it to their window, and climbed into the driver's seat from the passenger side.

      Alright, so maybe they didn't have any room to park? Well, no: there were four parking spaces on her (yes, I'm assuming, based on the car) left, but no, those spots were too far from the doctor's office! (Why walk five more feet?)

      These cards could really come in handy.
        • 6 Years Ago
        no to be sexist...but seriously, its always younger women and soccer moms who pull this shiet. that and pretentious d-bags.

        i know of a few douche bags that could def use this on their cars...cars that i see parked horribly on a daily basis. i think i'll just bring 5 pages of "nice parking" with 4 per page when i'm at school...all for a total of 50 cents. hell of a lot cheaper than w/e these guys would charge
      • 6 Years Ago
      Saw a good one a while back:

      a picture of mickey mouse giving you the middle finger with a caption that reads: "hey a**hole thanks for parking so close why don't you leave me a *ucking can opener next time so I can get in to my car"

      Someone did that to my wife once. She's not careless or thoughtless; she's just not great at parking. Anyway, she was doing her student teaching during the day, taking classes at night, and in between that trying to spend as much time with our kids (two at the time) as possible.

      She came home and I saw one of those little notes under her wiper. The way her wipers are, I doubt she even noticed; I took it off and threw it away hoping she hadn't seen it.

      I think we probably need a little less of this. Most people aren't being malicious when they park badly. Most of the time, it's not a personal problem for me anyway. We'd all do better letting stuff like this go.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Parking your car "badly", especially intentionally is a hint... "F'k with this car, the driver is a prick." is the hint it tells me.
        • 6 Years Ago
        "Someone did that to my wife once. She's not careless or thoughtless; she's just not great at parking. Anyway ..."

        +1 Doug. "Maybe you should teach your wife to park then." Took the words right off my fingertips.

        "People use their busy lives as excuses not to have driving skills."

        +1 Judy.

        @Jp: When you don't want someone to hit the car, park nice and far away; that's the only tactful way of letting people know to avoid your ride. I'm rarely in a hurry, and I don't mind the walk from the far end of the parking lot (or the top of the garage) to my destination - the extra bit of exercise doesn't hurt either.

        On topic: These cards are absurd. If you have to repeatedly deal with the same person parking like an idiot, I might understand. But buying a pack of cards to passive-aggressively rage at every bad parking job you come across means that you're just another ill-tempered driver who shouldn't be on the road in the first place.
        • 6 Years Ago
        I disagree, When in the Beemer I park "badly" intentionally all the time. Who needs careless a-holes opening their doors into your cars body parts. It's always tackfully done since I'm usually far enough away from the entrance of the building. I usually take up at least two spaces and park on an angle. I think my message is clear. Stay the F away from my car!

        When I'm in the Jeep I park over or on stuff all the time; snow banks, curbs, cement islands. Having an SUV comes in handy when you can't find a parking spot or when that guy just can't seem to make that left turn!

        If someone put one of those notes on one of my cars I would laugh and take it as a compliment!
        • 6 Years Ago
        Maybe you should teach your wife to park then. No offense, but unless she can do it properly (even you admitted she can't) she shouldn't do it at all. Even if that means she has to stop driving.

        It's not like getting between the lines, and not directly next to another car is hard. And even if you don't on your first attempt, it wouldn't kill her (or anyone else) to fix their bad parking attempt.
        • 6 Years Ago

        Your intended spelling of "tactfully" was incorrect. However, you did use the most accurate word.
