How to Graciously Get a Parking Spot

Gal Meets Glam

 

Have you ever found yourself in a crowded parking lot or garage, only to circle and circle endlessly for that precious parking spot? Or maybe you discovered a coveted spot snuggled up to the storefront, and realize that someone else is going to challenge you for it.

I experienced this last week during school pick-up. I circled the lot trying to find a spot and thankfully found one very quickly. I turned on my blinker, waited for the oncoming traffic to drive past, and just as I was about to turn into the spot, a fellow school parent whipped into the spot and didn’t even look back. Thankfully I found another spot and picked up the boys on time, however the experience inspired me to write a post about what to do (and not do!) to graciously get a parking spot. No one is perfect and I’m sure this parent didn’t mean to snag my spot, but nonetheless less it was a good reminder that being polite in the parking lot is just as important as everywhere else in life. And so, here are a few tips!

Do drive slowly in a parking lot

Do turn on your blinker if you find a spot and wait patiently for the car to back up

Do relinquish a spot if the other car was there first

Do ask someone if they are backing out if you notice they are sitting in their car with the brake lights on

Do not steal a spot from someone else just because you are late or short on time

Do not text and drive

Do not drive quickly through a parking garage trailing a person in the hopes to take their spot. Be patient 🙂

Do not take a spot from another car that is already waiting
