How Close Is TOO Close?

So, I parked my bike in the designated parking area last night at a place we stayed at for the evening. We were sitting at a picnic table close to my bike when a guy, that had checked in, started backing his bike into the same area my bike was parked. His "squeeze" is standing in front of him "guiding" him in.... He was getting close to a bench and she said "watch the bench", to which I replied in my "level 1" pissed the fuck off voice "the HELL with the bench, watch my bike!" He stopped but left the bike in that spot.

This is a large covered area that can hold 10 bikes. There are two there. Mine and his. He parked his within a few INCHES of my front tire. So close that standing my bike up would require backing it up first otherwise, I would hit his bag. I've attached pictures, although they don't do it justice.

The question is........ What would YOU have done in that situation?

Yeah mate, way too close. He deserved a proper education he did. We have a biker friendly bar here with designated bike parking and I must say I've never seen anyone as close as he was to you. At times people have blocked others in, but those that do always stay outside and keep an eye on when they ...

Wow. What a dipshit. I don't know why but I am continually amazed at people and their lack of common courtesy and sense.

I've always said ... We should all be armed with dart guns and darts with flags that say "stupid". Discharge as needed. When someone is tagged with 5 or more "stupid" darts then the cops pull them over and give them a "fuckwit ticket" with a fine of $100 for every dart.

But wait, there's more ... once you get 3 "fuckwit tickets" you are entered into a monthly auction for an "ass whuppin' permit" where licensed drivers can bid on the privilege to be the one to give you a first rate ass whipping.

What a douchebag! It is so sad that so many people have no respect and/or common sense about others around them! This individually definitely needed to be educated on the fine art of parking and respect for other's bikes ... but the sad thing is he probably wouldn't have gotten it anyway since obv...

The guy was an ass, plain and simple as was the girl with him. He'll think twice next time. ;-)

For some of us, backing up is a challenge. I pretty much have to do it by the tips of my boots or flat footed, one side at a time, if I can't get enough traction. If all else fails, I get off the bike and back it up manually. There is no obstruction to his left so why did he park so far to the right...
