At least in my pic, the volvo on the left is facing away from my car and so is the jeep on the right.

I know I won't get any door dings today

I do the same thing. It's safer anyhow . . like Numark said, when you park w/ the back in, you have better situational awareness, but when you have to back out of a spot, sometimes it's hard to see if anyone is coming. I also park further away in an empty area if possible for 2 reasons: 1) so no one hits me, and 2) it's more obvious is someone is trying to break into your ride . . with no other cars close by, they got nowhere to hide behind.

that reminds me... a few days ago i was picking up my little brother from basketball practice and there was alot of people there, this one guy in an older merc was blocked in, so he stuck it into drive and took the sidewalk. that was just about the funniest thing i ever saw. and while i was there, this stupid lady thought it would be funny to park behind me, she was parked in the middle of the road blocking traffic. now if thats not the worst parking job ever i dont know what is.
