** College campuses are another notorious place for this trope. There always seems to be more parking permits handed out than there are parking spaces available. It's not uncommon for students to arrive half an hour early and ''still'' be late for class due to the lack of available parking.

* A interstitial short on Creator/CartoonNetwork had [[WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones Fred Flintstone]], [[WesternAnimation/ThundarrTheBarbarian Thundarr]], and [[WesternAnimation/CowAndChicken Chicken]] car-pooling, while Fred struggles to find a parking space in the over-crowded parking lot at CN Headquarters. After some hijinks (including Space Ghost offering his space before remembering "I flew into work today! Silly me." and trying to beat Anime/SpeedRacer to a spot), the trio are ''still'' looking late at night, and Fred grouses "That does it! I'm gonna start takin' the bus to work."

* There's a Mentos commercial where some jerk pulls into an open parking spot right when Our Heroine wants to leave, sandwiching her in. Cue a Mentos, and a Bright Idea: she recruits the help of some beefy construction workers to pick up her car and ease it out.

** In another Archie comic, Moose complains about the parking situation, saying it took an hour to get his compact car out of a certain lot. When told that isn't so bad (seriously?), he says that it ''wasn't'' a compact car when he'd parked it.
