Default My wife thinks I’m insane ...

Because we drove up 8 floors to the top of the parking garage to find the “perfect” parking space.

Anyone else do this when they’re in a public parking garage?

Yes, like you I always look for the perfect space. Don't want a door ding to ruin my day. Your emergency brake must be working well on the steep downhill grade.

I parked next to the wall to make sure two people couldn't park next to me. My wife screamed, "no one else is even parking up here!"

Yup, I always look for the safest stall.

You crazy, crazy bastage!! You parked out in the open. What if a freak hail storm brewed up?!?
Don't let the naysayers worry you. Spoil the things that bring you pleasure - inanimate and otherwise. Great looking car...T

Where in Philly was the garage with the open deck at the top? I'd park there. BTW, I do exactly the same thing. My wife gets my paranoia, but still calls me a "chucklehead!"

It’s the PPA lot off 9th and Market. There’s also one at 8th but that one gets more traffic.

We are all insane....but I think I have you all beat. I am so programmed to do exactly what you all are doing that even when I rent a car, I look for the perfect spot. To make matters worse if it gets too dirty I wash the damn thing! Married 31 years, she has accepted the insanity.

I almost always go straight to the top, just because it's way less of a hassle to find a spot, get in and out, and it makes it super easy to remember where I parked.

Remember - the sun kills interiors. Shrinks leather, cracks vinyl, dries it all out. I wouldn't park on the roof.
