I’m not up on the names of the various biases. But I feel like there’s one where you take how things are for you, and apply it to everyone else as though yours was the metric for “normal”.
Either way, yes. Parking can get pretty bad where I live. WAY TOO MANY PEOPLE are driving, and they all gotta stop somewhere, and a lot of that time it’s not at their own homes.
The lot I saw that car in typically fills up; there’s no “back of the lot” parking because it has a Super Target and other stores at one end, and Gamestop and other shops at the other end.
That said, parking availability is not really the point, in my opinion.
Parking between the lines so nobody will ding your car is selfish behavior. Period. It’s saying, “What I have is important, so to keep you careless fuckers away I’m going to take twice as much space as has been allotted to me. Inconvenient for you? Tough shit.”
What can I say? I really took the whole, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” stuff to heart when I was young. Equality and fairness matter to me to a very high degree.
