Whether you manage a law office, factory or warehouse can you learn anything from your employees parking style?

Often, particularly in this job market, an employee will not come right out and express dissatisfaction with their job or with company management.

The way a company finds out that someone is unhappy will probably be through either obvious recurring displays which is unlikely or when that employee comes in and gives notice.

But is it possible that the way an employee parks their car could tell you anything about the way that they are feeling? It can according to one reader of Freakonomics:

Now personally I always back into a spot because it is simply easier to get out, particularly in a crowded parking lot.

But on the other hand, can you put any credence in a theory like this, or is simply too vague?

If you run a law office or work at one, what is your opinion on ways to either judge morale or ways to express low morale?

Given the subject matter it is of course fine to respond anonymously!
