Funny you should say that. One of the builders I work for drives a Prius. He has a truck he brings his trailer with, then uses the Prius exclusively from that point on.What? Legitimate contractors can't drive Prius' and Volvos? :laughing:
Under the canopy is where I am talking about.Funny you should say that. One of the builders I work for drives a Prius. He has a truck he brings his trailer with, then uses the Prius exclusively from that point on.
But to the OP, do I get ticked off? Not in the least. I park under the canopy. That, IMO, is the contractors parking spot. I wouldn't be caught dead in the so called contractor parking area.
At my local HD it is a parking and loading zone. They have yellow parking lines drawn and a sign in front of each spot that says parking for our pro customers.The covered area is supposed to be a loading zone, not a parking area. Trying to load your truck up in there is nearly impossible with all the trucks left unattended.
Same for me, Lowes or HD, there is a ton of contractor parking. Then again i usually go to the same HD and Lowes so i just do not run into that situation. I am sure if i worked in Los Angeles i would have parking issues though...but parking in general there blows anyway.Our Lowes here always has lots of parking space...it's never an issue for me. And the canopy is for loading only.
I park in those too call me a d bag but there is no spot that says " so f'n pissed to have to be shopping here in the first place"480sparky said:Stuff a pillow under your shirt and go in to complain there's no "New and Expecting Mother" parking.
It's pretty cool to go to a drywall or plywood distributor or a different lumber yard ....I hate when I pull up and can't get a spot and have to get dry wall or ply wood and there is two or three cars there.
I drive my wife's Prius to HD on the weekends, and park in the contractor spots. It doesn't say pick up trucks only, and I am still a contractor even when I'm doing honey do stuff.What? Legitimate contractors can't drive Prius' and Volvos? :laughing:
I was amazed at the kids who would circle the parking lot over and over and over and over to find a spot just a "little bit closer", hold up traffic while they watched someone who might be leaving to capture the space, etc. Just dumb.
