I'm not the only one who has problems with parking donkeys

There's a guy in Edmonton who has made it his life's ambition to call drivers out for their dirty parking shenanigans. Just like how I call out the donkeys who can't park to save their lives in GO lots.

Here's the CTV report:

"Edmonton man hands out 'tickets' for bad parking jobs"

People who can't park drive Eli Dupuis mad.

There's the "on the line" driver who parks so close you can't open your car door. The "fancy car" driver who takes up two stalls because he doesn't want anyone near his precious set of wheels. And there's the "illegal location" driver who steals a spot designated for the handicapped.

Dupuis, an Edmonton website developer and creator of, has been posting photos and tagging all types of bad parking jobs on his website for more than a year.

There's a woman who disregards the lines in our parking area at work and overlaps into two spots. She's a nut ... I call her "Crazy Lady".

Yeh, I'm just waiting for the day when someone goes postal on Eli.
As much as I hate bad and illegal park'ers, parking "cops" are a joke and are totally lacking in common sense, at least where I live.

It's on thing to call people out online = safe. It's another to actually go out there and put stuff on their cars = crazy.

Just my 2 cents.

I have left notes (actual paper ones, not lipstick like I would like) on people's windshields. The last time that happened it basically said that the next time they are parked there (illegally at end of row) I will hit them.

No clue how that played out. But I think his site is a great idea.

I once had a guy park his car over the line and literally an inch away from my car - even the skinniest person on earth wouldnt be able to get into the drivers door. I had to climb into the passenger door, over the console and get in the drivers seat. Once there I proceeded to open my drivers door a couple of times - - ooops!!

I left a note on a windshield once, outside of Loblaws on Gibb. I watched a woman drive up and park in front of the store, even though there were tons of parking spots available. This is a real pet peeve of mine. Make everybody drive around your car, because you're too special and lazy to walk 20 feet. I basically called her a lazy bitch. Who knows if she cared, but I felt better.
