    People suck at parking at the commuter lot...

    I realize you can't seen the painted lines, but it should be a common sense thing. You should realize that when you pull in, you're leaving about four to five feet of clearance for others cars to get down. If not, then we have to back all the way out.

    I don't know if you're talking about parking at the game last night, or people today but either way, I wish I could have an aerial shot of that lot in the winter

    Well, at least some things at ISU never change.

    It was that way in the 90's as well.

    Re: People suck at parking at the commuter lot...

    Last year on FOUR different days, I was fortunate enough to be boxed in.

    There was a car parked, I pulled in facing it. I came back after classes to find the same car in front of me, as well as a car behind me. Do people not see that if there are already TWO cars parked, do not park behind one of them???

    i think they need to put cement curbs in so people can learn to park.

    In 1995, they had those temporary curbs there for a while, but I think it must have become too hard to plow snow with them there, and they weren't there a couple of years later.

    And those people will have a degree from the same institution as you. Kind of gives you a warm fuzzy, doesn't it?


    Dean Wormer was wrong. Fat, drunk and stupid was a great way to go through college (all five years of it).

    Not only the parking itself last night, but all the people who drive the wrong way through the lot. Can't they see all the already parked vehicles facing them?

    Can't you see today is whine and complain today on this board. Please keep the positive stuff to yourself .

    (Great to see someone can see some positive in life. By reading this message board, you would believe we all live in a 3rd world country and are covered in flies waiting to drink sewage water.)

    Re: People suck at parking at the commuter lot...

    Sometimes the problem of cars facing the wrong way is students left over from classes still having cars parked there and then others come in and park going the wrong way.

    I know I parked last night against two cars that were going the wrong way. Somewhere along the line the basketball crew messed up, had no choice but to go with everyone who was going the wrong way.

    I also tend to park at one end or the other of the parking lot, that way I don't have to fight narrow lanes or getting boxed in.
