Even parking your car closer to the back of the parking lot won't be enough to dissuade some infected individuals. The urge to have their vehicle spoon with another can be too strong to overcome. A person so afflicted will ignore the lure of closer, more favourable parking spots, just to park parallel with someone else.
The effects of this disease can be extremely devastating when the individual is a driver of a large SUV or 2 door vehicle packed full of hyper active children.
So why do you feel obligated to park RIGHT beside my truck in an otherwise empty parking lot?! Lonely Car Syndrome. That's why.
