Stupid shit behind the wheel


The title is a bit of a misnomer. I don't have some list of things that irritate me about the driving habits of others. Well, I do but I just want to bitch about one. It doesn't really bother me, I find it amusing.

People who cut you off, or change lanes with no signal, or leave said signal on. No, none of these things.

The subject today is guys who always back into parking spaces.

You pull into the gas station and are about to get out of your car, but you can't. Because some jackass is trying to back into the space next to you. What is it with these guys? Why do they fell the need to always back into a parking space? Are they going to rob the place and need to make a quick getaway? Are they just practicing their driving skills in reverse. Do they have OCD and somehow their world is not right unless they back in?

I think they are mostly trying to impress the rest of us with their amazing parking skills. I draw this conclusion because it is usually the same type of guy. A younger man in a truck, usually a small truck. When I enter an establishment and there happens to be one truck in the lot backed into it's parking space, 9 times out of 10 I can pick out the owner of that truck. If you see a guy wearing the same pair of Oakley's that he wore in 1989, it's his truck.

So please, unless you are a getaway driver, or practicing to be a getaway driver, just pull into the parking space. There is really no need to back in. It actually takes slightly more time to back in and drive straight out than it does to pull in and back out. Try it, and you will find I speak the truth.

And no I am not just saying this because I can't back in. Cause I'm actually an excellent driver. I gotta go, 3 minutes to Wapner.
