i'm the same with my family members especially. when they open the doors when park next to someone else they don't care most of the time with my doors and the way they open it. my nephews always seem to slam the door when they used to get in my last car 3000gt. so now i just use my bro in laws car when i have to take them out or anything and leave my car parked and when it comes to parking under a tree never. i'm afraid that it might fall or tree saps and other **** when its windy out.

I'm very protective of my car, I'l park far away from everyone else. If parking seems crowded then il look for the last parking spot at the end and give the car next to me as much room as possible.

More often than not it's just one person in the car, the driver. Well their drivers side is the passenger side of my car. Therefore I'm leaving them with more room to open their door and lessens the chance of them hitting my car.
LOL I just park crooked and make it look like I can't park. I'd rather get yelled at, than have to repair dings, and scratches.
