And This Fills My Rant Quotient For The Year

WHY do people insist on backing into parking spaces?  I honestly want to know. 

It always catches me off guard when I’m following a car through a parking lot, and they stop, then BACK UP WITHOUT WARNING and maneuver into a spot.  What is the point?

It’s MUCH easier to back OUT of a parking spot than it is to back IN to one.  Is it really that much more convenient to drive straight out of the parking space when you leave?  Is there any other possible reason for this insanity?

If you have a habit of backing into your parking spot, would you PLEASE look behind you before doing so?  The car behind you may not be expecting it.
