There's an epidemic of people sitting in their cars
What is up with this creepy epidemic of people sitting in their cars? Every time I go to the grocery store, or Target, or any parking lot, at least half of the cars have someone just sitting in them for no reason. I used to never see someone sitting in their car unless they were waiting on a friend to get something in the store, but this is a whole other phenomenon. It's disconcerting to pull into a parking lot and be surrounded by people sitting in cars on all sides. I don't feel safe.
What the hell are they doing? Don't they have something else to do?

Welcome to last year, OP. There's a worldwide pandemic going on, so there are a lot of people are sitting in their cars to get out of the house, but avoid going outside. If it bothers you, do your part and please stay home!

I have 3 college-age households nearest to me, and I can see the street out front from the room where I work nowadays. These youngsters invariably get into a car and then just sit inside at the steering wheel for about 10 minutes before driving off. When one of them returns home from someplace, they turn off the car, and then remain inside the car for 10 or 15 minutes before getting out again. Obviously, they're using their phones, but why not just go inside and do it, or do it *before* you head out in the car? It's very mysterious to me. And seems highly stupid.

Since the pandemic started, I have eaten in the parking lot of a few stores. Pick up food and instead of eating in THEIR parking lot - I’ll drive over to Target and eat in the car before I shop.
Also, I made my mom stay in the car a few times last spring/summer while I shopped. I didn’t feel she was safe around all of the deplorables around here. When masks started being enforced she started shopping again.

^One of my neighbor chicks did this yesterday, not even in her car, but just parading up and down in the road, in front of my open windows, carrying on her inane, college co-ed bullshit, for about 30 minutes, all loud enough for me to hear every word she said. I felt like Divine in that scene, just moments before she beats whining little Taffy, and then they take the little bitch upstairs and tie her to the bed.

There's the COVID/pandemic/lockdown sitting-in-car phenom, for sure. But it may be feeding into and intensifying the long-term, systemic sitting-in-car phenom that was afoot pre-COVID, that's R4's phone/texting-related phenom.
Pandemic/lockdown behavior: It's pathetic, but for many of us driving to a cafe or grocery store, or ordering a meal and picking it up, was the only outing we've gotten during this ordeal. We are the locked-down cohort who aren't so concerned we literally never leave home and have everything delivered, but we're concerned enough that masked/distanced food shopping or pickup is the extent of what we're going to do in the outside world.
We then sit in the car and drink our caffeine or picnic on the meal we fetched. Oftenwhile availing ourselves of free wifi provided by a nearby establishment. I just spoke to a barista the other day who said they do the exact same thing. that this was their get-out-of-the-house lockdown outing.
Systemic sitting-in-car behavior: The worst I saw of this pre-pandemic was the idiots who are making the urban parking nightmare even worse. They get into their car in a desperately-needed scarce space. They start the car up so the lights go on, and the desperate parking-space hunter stops and idles waiting for the space to vacate. And then the idiot does not leave. They sit there for ten or fifteen minutes TEXTING and fucking around on their SMARTPHONE, with their car running. This was rampant in my giant megalopolis pre-COVID, and it's not going away.

There were weekdays when I would pull into my garage and turn off my car and just couldn't move. My mind would race, I would feel a fatigue that prevented me from trying to exit the vehicle and I would need to decompress before I left the vehicle. Anywhere from 2 to 15 mins.

Many years ago, I would sometimes go out for lunch by myself, just to get out of the office mainly. I'd pull in the most remote parking spot in the lot to eat it, and without fail, some stranger would *always* pull up right next to me to eat their lunch too. Never mind that there's like 100+ other empty parking spots available.

He opened his car door and was walking toward me normal speed. I just quickly closed the door and locked it. I looked out the kitchen window and he was again sitting in the car. Wtf! Also in Westwood, I noticed a woman who was in her car ALL DAY LONG!!! I was beyond creeped out and damn curious what the fuck was going on. The people looked normal. Not threatening.

After a year cooped up in a shared living situation, I seek any excuse to get out of the house. I have always needed some degree of alone time, and having none almost drove me insane. Living with people who literally never leave the house (gaming addicts) and not many places to go means you have to be creative. After vaccination I volunteered to go back to the office to get out of the house. It’s more work and no one is there, but at least I have some “alone time”, since no one is really there.
It used to be being home all the time made you a bad roommate/housemate, but now it’s considered normal, especially after Covid. I plan on staying at a bnb on a regular basis on weekends until I move in the very near future.

There used to be this very odd girl at work a few years ago. She would bring her lunch to work, and instead of eating at her desk or in the break room, she would go out to her car in the parking lot, start it up, windows rolled up and a/c on, and sit there idling for her full lunch hour. She never left the parking spot, ever. She would eat her food then read a book with the car running. The amount of unnecessary air pollution is horrifying to think about. Not to mention the wear and tear on the car. Low mileage maybe but burned through fuel like there's no tomorrow.

To make any money at Lyft, you have to figure out the best place to wait on your fares. A centrally located "cut through" large neighborhood is usually the best spot.

When we had a thread on this topic a few years ago, a poster suggested that some people who do this are returning from their dealers and either can't wait to use or can't use in their living situation so they park to do it. A couple did this on my block about a dozen or so times at random times of the day and night. A couple of times they reclined their seats and appeared to nap.

On my street parking is scarce and a permit is required only at night. Often times they(The people that sit in cars) take spaces that residents need. Often times they take up two spaces because they do not park properly. I’m not saying residents should be automatically entitled to these spots but it would be nice if people would be more considerate on already jampacked streets. But such is life in the big city!

A renter in my building has one of those huge pickup trucks that he babies every day. He can’t park parallel to save his fucking life and always takes up a spot and a half - there will be at least 4 feet in front of his beast. Fortunately, he has to move his car about every two hours during the day to avoid tickets.
He doesn’t sit in the car; instead, he rubs and polishes bizarre parts of the vehicle. I still don’t understand the need to polish the wheels AND tires.

Aren't those the same thing?

I think R127 means rims and tires. Which do need to be cleaned & treated properly.

We long to be out the house. So we stay in the car longer.

When I was about 20, my friend & I were chatting in my car in a strip mall parking lot for about 30 mins, & the 7-11 worker called the police on us! They ran out licenses & told us to leave the parking lot.

Agree with those who said it’s the phones. I had a colleague who would go and sit in his car over lunch and read his messages/send texts/emails, etc. And the rise of open concept office space (pre-COVID) probably contributes too - people just need some privacy to make calls or just chill away from the outside world.

OP, you insufferable MARY! Unless thy are parking across from your home and staring at you with binoculars, nothing you noted is creepy.

For the life of me I can’t understand what the hysteria is about...why would this trigger anyone? Get a hobby or drink or do drugs or something

You can do both r141. Being insanely irritated about people in parked cars certainly does not preclude drinking. Of that, I can attest.

Do people still park at lovers' lanes?

This morning I passed a car on 12th St (NYC) with a fat bald man texting away in his car, with his chubby sausage fingers moving 'dit dit dit,,,' and I laughed out loud thinking about this thread! I laughed, I tell you!

[quote]When we had a thread on this topic a few years ago, a poster suggested that some people who do this are returning from their dealers and either can't wait to use or can't use in their living situation so they park to do it.
When I was a teenager living in Nassau county Long Island in the '80s, my friends and I used to drive to Far Rockaway to buy crack. On the way home we would stop somewhere in the Five Towns, usually Lawrence, and park on some residential street because we couldn't wait to get home before we packed our crack pipes and took some nice long hits. Luckily nobody ever noticed us or gave us any trouble.
God I miss my youth.

Texting. Or sexting?? You always hear car motors idling forever and when you look out there's someone just arrived or getting ready to leave, but they're sitting there playing with their...phone, with the car light on inside, forever and a day.

My coworker doesn't have a car (his wife drops him off), so he spends 30 minutes in the employee bathroom twice a day doing goodness knows what. I wish he had a car to sit in.
