    LOL!! Me and my roommate are having that exact same problem!! They've threatened to evict us if we don't keep it down. Guess getting home late and letting everyone know you arrived isn't a good idea!

    I always back in or if lucky enough to get a spot to pull through in.

    I back in everytime. Personally I think it looks cooler, lol plus it's easier to get into tight spaces that way. Having a crew cab I gotta swing wide to pull in front first, I'm sure other crew cab drivers will agree. Lol

    I always backed in at school. Only time I pulled in was when I was running late. If its slanted parking spaces, I'll just pull right on in.

    New question, do you guys turn around and look or do you use your mirrors/back up cam?

    I think it is alot easier to back in, and my grandpa always would do it so i picked it up, i have a ocd for parking my truck tho, my girlfriend actualy gets mad at me because if it is not perfect i will pull out and park again.

    I cain't leave mine there unless she is straight parked and both sides have enough room to get in and out. I'll even fold in my mirrors sometimes lol
