Parking Lot Stalker


You're at the mall. The parking spaces close to the mall are all taken, but there's plenty of parking toward the back.

Choose your adventure:

1) drive around the parking lot looking for people with bags, follow them in the hope that they parked close to the mall, and then grab their spot as soon as they leave [stalker]

2) park in back [not a stalker]

In true SA style I always park in back, even when there is plenty of parking up front... and I hate it when people hover, or follow me as I leave the mall.

I follow my prey as soon as they leave the mall doors.

I hate parking lot stalkers. During the Christmas shopping season, I get a sick satisfaction of intentionally walking down the wrong aisle and then turning toward my car at the last minute just to make the people who followed me down the aisle upset.

Have a nice day,
Kelly

Carefully, but full of might.

Sometimes I stalk, if the store is superbusy and I'm in a hurry. Most of the time I don't care though.

I don't have the patience. I can usually park at the back and walk the extra distance in the time it takes to wait for one of the closer spaces to open up.

Your car is less likely to get dinged by a stray shopping cart or a swinging door that way.

YES, YES!!!! I just don't get it. I know it's cold at times, but, as many times as some of these people circle, they could have parked further away, and have been in the store........They are not going to die from the cold.........

Mental illness is what some have, not who they are.

I don't go to malls but when I go to regular stores, I usually park far from the building because I hate people hovering behind me to get my spot Besides, it isn't going to kill me to walk a few extra yards to the store.

I stalk in parking lots, just not for parking spots. I've usually already found one.

I am the parking lot stalker. I don't know what you mean by "parking spaces" and "driving," because I'm normally traveling by foot or Rascal motorized scooter.

The only time parking lot stalkers were bad to me was in college. Other than that, I really go for the first available space. If somebody just happens to pull out of a good spot, I'll take it. Otherwise, I move on.

I'm not a stalker. I just don't care enough about having a space near to the store to go to the trouble.
