I realise we have been here before, but I could not resist posting these pictures from the car park at work. Every day I leave work and this same car is parked next to me!

It doesn't matter that there are probably 200 empty spaces in the car park, including three next to my car, he has to park next to me!!

To be fair I have not noticed any dings or red paint on the side of my car, but why???? :confused::mad:

They are protecting your car
If I park in a far away place and notice someone else parking in the same area, I wave them over and say
"it is not everyone that I let park next to me'

But my ulterior motive is that
a. They know I know who they are
b. I will take a pic after they walk off
c. My car side is protected

I think you have a little parking lot buddy. I dont know why he couldn't park on the other side to make getting easier out (and reduce the risk of door dings), but at least you know one side is protected by the same car every day.

Do you know who owns the car? Maybe it is a Woman that has a crush on you and wants to meet you. What better way to get noticed sooner or later you will leave a note on the windshield:laugh::laugh::wink:

He or she wants to look good next to you.

It's human nature to want to be close to things that are attractive.
Well that would explain why this guy parked next to me. :D

Do you always park in the same space? Maybe that's the reason the Getz parks there too. Try different slots and see if the Getz follows you.....

I do Martin, it's what I call my spot. :smile: I will give parking somewhere different a try, we will see what happens.

I am a creature of habit though, will take some will power to park in a different space! :grin:

That's a good thought. Perhaps you are parking in a spot they consider to be "theirs" so they schmooze up next to you.

Another though, maybe they appreciate your beautiful car and just enjoy the contrast to theirs, shiny vs not. Try another spot and see if the schmoozer follows.
