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?

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

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...
