Seeing the Funny Side: Tesla Employees Get Creative with Parking

US automotive firm Tesla has experienced positive growth resulting in rising numbers of employees. This is great news! Though not for those travelling to work by car...

Tesla Employees Get Creative

There are 6,000 employees at the Tesla offices in the US, however the parking lot has only 4,500 spaces in it – and it doesn’t take a mathematics degree to work out that the company is running seriously short of parking!

Parking Lot Problem Solving

Although since removed, there have been some truly comical photos showing how employees were getting around the lack of space at Tesla. We’ve seen pictures of clever curb crawling, workers managing to squeeze large cars into minute spaces, cars blocking other cars in and cars making space where there appears to be no space at all!

We hope Tesla expands its parking lot to meet its expanding workforce soon!

Other Parking Pranks

Politics in the car park isn’t just confined to Tesla though. One of our personal favourites from scouring the web had to be a picture of a life size batmobile parked outside a shopping centre! 

From leaving a wheelie bin in the boss’s personal parking space to being just plain inconsiderate – there are plenty of parking fails out there and although we can see the funny side, it can be extremely stressful arriving at work with nowhere to park. 


From commuter traffic to tea stealing to fridge faux pas’, the office can be a tricky place! But find the right one and it can be tremendous fun too.
