Parking Space Hogs

There was a great tip on NPR's Talk of the Nation this afternoon. A listener had written in to suggest a way to get the point across to those "special" people who feel entitled to park their cars across 2-3 parking spaces in crowded parking lots.

His idea? He leaves a note under the windshield that reads, "Sorry about the scratch." He thinks they'll go nuts trying to find the scratch.

Should commercial office buildings or shopping centers take action against those "special" drivers? They probably won't; they won't want to make them mad. Well, what about the rest of us?

Who was that guy in Texas with the bumper stickers, "I'm mad, too, Eddie." Remember him? Eddie Chiles (1910-1993) was a radio commentator and also owned the Texas Rangers, until he sold the team to a group of investors that included George W. Bush.
