That's the sweet spot!! But being right there at the corner is almost asking for attention.....a half full cup of soda, ice cream, bubble gum, a half eaten Army's sandwich.....or like I found once, a pack of bologna.

Some people don't give a chit where you park. It's only a matter of owning a Corvette.

Still a sweet spot!!!

You may end up with a few surprises donated by birds.

Never seen a spot like that at any WalMart near where we live. You hit the jackpot.

As far as bird poo, well it washes off. Dings and scratches don't.

No such parking places near the Wal-Mart that I use. But I do park just beyond the cart return spaces.

What's wrong with Wal Mart? Don't you like Size 24 translucent spandex?

I don't shop there, They won't pay a living wage, Beat there venders to death and I have no intention of putting a dime in any of the Walton Families Pockets

Paranoia and acknowledgement of the fact that there are "haters" out there lead me to recommend that the safest way to park there is to bring your other car and leave the vette home.

I hate to be negative about it but.....better safe than sorry.

Safest place to park at Wally World is to be in someone else's car.

Who is talking about Walmart?
Check the thread title again, before giving in to the pig fight about the merits of one of American capitalism key players.

This thread was only aiming at fun, thanks to those who appreciated it as such.

For the record, I don't care about Waly any more than anyone, but then again, there are lots of things, people, and corporations I don't care about, but have to live with.

(And thanks Jim)
