Default Parking Lot Pet Peeves

So today I was walking through the 1st floor of the Bellagio parking garage, noticing an unusual number of cars idling and moving slowly. I couldn't remember if my car was parked on the 1st or 2nd floor, so I made a casual sweep through the 1st level to make sure.

As I was doing this, I had numerous people roll down their windows and ask me if I was about to leave. They were stopped and blocking traffic, plus I didn't know where my car was parked, so I told them no.

It turns out my car was parked on the 2nd floor, where there were vast amounts of open spaces. So obviously my pet peeve in parking lots/garages are people who wait upwards of 1-2 minutes, blocking traffic, in order to grab a parking spot that someone might be backing out of. Had they taken the time to drive up another level they would have easily found a spot, without greatly inconveniencing others.

Personally I normally just automatically park on the 2nd or 3rd level whenever I go to places like Wynn and Bellagio, simply because I know I will find a spot on those floors 99% of the time, whereas the 1st floor is generally occupied. Anyone else have this or other annoyances in parking lots?

My biggest parking annoyance is stupid-ass [censored] giant SUVs and vans I can't see around when backing out of a space. I don't have a problem with them on the roads; it's really only in parking lots that they annoy me.

I hate when one of them gets in the left hand turning lane across from mine. For all I know, it's clear behind him, but without the Inspector Gadget head, you have know way of knowing, so you have to wait for the red light.

Also hate the wide-bodied vehicles that park on narrow streets.

People driving the wrong way in angled areas. Those who take your space. Employees who take closest spaces. Taking up more than one space/ not parking centered. Speeders/people who don't look at intersections. In big letters $3 parking, in super tiny letters, for first 15 minutes.

No similar story, but I almost always just drive up to the top of the garage if it's not raining, and the level just below that if it is. Parking on the 1st floor is just a waste of time mostly.

I hate the pricks who park their monster trucks in compact spaces.
