Put It In Park

I'm am impatient man, sometimes. I hate waiting on buses. My elevator and garage door almost slow me to death. And the thought of actually taking 20 minutes to cook a meal is asinine. So when I'm trying to find a parking space and some jerk has done such a crappy job parking their vehicle so that I can't park in an open space, it makes me want to club a donkey in the face (I rhymed!).

Several years ago Wendy and I joked about making these little cards that had Mickey Mouse flipping you off on them. The card would say something to the effect of "park better next time, bitch." I never made the time to make them, but have wanted to for so long.

With the recent re-discovering of the SHHH cards and my recent hooking up of my new printer, I decided it was finally time to make the cards.

For your viewing pleasure, the Please Park Better (PPB) Cards.

Let me know what I can do to make these better! I'll soon make a nice pdf for everyone to print to let the idiots know just what is up.

These are amazing, I've been looking for something like this for ages. One thing though - I'm a city dweller who has to paralel park on city streets, what absolutely kills us is the guy who parks in the middle of two spots, any way to do a card that addresses that?
Great work!

I could go through about a dozen decks of those a week over here at Delaware. It would also be cool to have a parallel parking version... with options to check such as someonee boxing you in, or someone leaving too big of a gap in front and behind so that only they can park where 2 cars could easily fit.

I thought that the middle car on these cards could serve that purpose... but I could definitely whip up a parallel parking version. Should it be about being blocked in? Or still about not being able to park at all?

Oh, my gosh. I can't believe I'm so late commenting on this. I was so busy yesterday that I didn't even check the site. Seth...thank you for finally doing this. I almost did one myself a few months ago. They HAVE been a long time in the making. They look great. I like Scoot's idea, though, of adding some more bad-parking examples, especially the parrallel one. It should illustrate a car that hasn't squeazed in enough, so that there's only room for half a car between Idiot's car and the No Parking sign. Happens all the time in the plaza.
