Thumbs down new state of origin ad

The ad for game 2 sees a guy parking his car looking across he sees the car next to him with a state sticker on the side window. Reverses out so he can get closer and opens his door straight into the side of the parked car.

What a stupid add. Some people out there don't need this sort of encouragement.:mad3: :fmad:

I went to the supermarket tonight, came back out to my car (not the Peregrine (Phew!)) only to discover paint off the drivers door. Some *!#@head had slammed their door into mine.:fmad:

Like you said HSE2, no need for encouragement:thumbdown :thumbdown

I have on occasions taken two parking spots but that tends to draw more attention still. I avoid parking places when I can but I tell you if cars could talk. One day i watched in amazement when an old lady just reversed into the car behind. Looked like she could not turn her head so it was far easier to just drive by touch.

I could go on and on. Once I was the only car parked on the whole street and some old guy managed to hit me. I was actually laughing when I got out of the car. I just couldn't believe it:mad:

When I have to park in Carparks I always try to find the furthest spot away that has no cars near it, yeah you have to walk further but who doesnt need the excercise. Also a good idea to park next to a BMW or Merc as they would be less likey to bash their door against yours. Defenately dont park near a sh!tbox that hasnt been washed in 5 years, has bald tyres, interior full of junk etc as some of them would deliberately hit our cars as they dont like other people having nice things :fmad: :fmad: :flame: :flame:
