"You hit my car!"

That was just part of the chaos today at the Charlotte Premium Outlet Mall.  It's the second weekend the mall has been open but people are sounding off about parking.

"Parking is crazy. I actually have somebody right now trying to tear off the front of my Mustang. You see that? Parking is crazy.  I have been driving around for twenty minutes," said Avohdon McCaskill.

Carmen Matos used to live in Charlotte but came in from Virginia to check out the outlet mall and said "parking has been ridiculous."

Limited parking isn't the only thing people seemed concerned about; it was also the size of the parking spaces which some say are just too small.

"They need people out here directing out here in the parking lots because people are not parking correctly which makes a domino effect," said Shirley Williamson.

Williamson works at the outlet mall and has been dealing with the parking issues. "It's a nightmare for me because I'm twenty minutes for work right now and I got here about quarter of and thought I would have time to park," said Williamson.

Some drove for twenty minutes just to find a spot.  People continue to circle the lots, horns were beeping, and windows were down as people were yelling at each other. "I almost made my son get out and block the spot because people were lining up.  They are like vultures," said Cindy Smichowski.

 Mall management said the parking situation is a problem because it's the second weekend of the mall being open. They advise shoppers to be courteous and try different ways to enter and exit the mall instead of the main road.
