Nice to know I am not the only person that does this.......
Two peas in a pod springs to mind but I'm not clear on this.

You park next to isolated cars on the far side or like Jacko or you've parked your car next to some electrical pylons for too long? :rolleyes:

I park the shiny car well away from where the masses park (near the entrance) on the other side of the car-park where nobody (usually) parks.

I'm not sure what you are talking about with the pylons though - are you ok? Do you need help?

;-)

Beyond help so I'm told... :whistling

However, still confused - so in your attempts to park your car away from the masses do you park next to other shiny lil cars?

Personally, I ride a rusty old bike after having couple of good ones stolen. I also don't lock it as it happens. I make sure I park my bike next to good ones so it pales into insignificance.

The pylons may have something to do with electromagnetism but that's me being silly and obtuse. No need to mention tumbleweeds rolling through the car park. :eek:

LOL no! I park MY shiny car on it's own, away from all the other cars. Often when I come back somebody elses NOT SHINY car is parked next to mine.

I park away from everyone else because they bash their doors into my doors because the parking spaces are tiny......

I intensely dislike NCP car parks. Rip of Britain comes to mind. They suffocate town centres by charging stupid prices.

Council gets their fee from NCP on a long lease contract and whilst they - NCP get rich, rest of shops go poor unable to pay rates and start closing down. Bleeding council management don't have a clue or vision beyond what's in front of their noses. I'm sure back-handers are paid too.

NCP car parks have high prices with unrealistic space provided agreed.

Shopping car parks not so bad imo but don't drive much and I don't have shiny car. I may have forgotten to mention I'm an anti-car tree hugger too... :)

Goin slightly off topic, Tesco was and is a buy. It's got falling market share but still three times the combined clout of its two nearest rivals. The p/e is good and it's low risk even with (especially with - muppets) Moodys downgrade a few months back.

P/E is good only if you believe the 'E'. I don't (at least not on consensus numbers). Margin expectations will come down, and with negative operating leverage, will have a big impact on 'E', and that's before you get the effect of higher D&A because of higher capex. Earnings have come down a long way and will come down further IMO. Where returns have gone (negative to zero on incremental capital), so, at least directionally, will earnings follow. It will get to 150 I tell ya.
