The Back In

Posted: April 12, 2012 in Uncategorized

Nothing like having to pass up a prime parking spot because someone decided to back their car into about 4 spots. You get to spend the next fifteen minutes cruising around some parking lot listening to traffic reports and commercials for teen night at some club while that driver is twirling their keys and loving life.

You whip it right in there, slurping on your iced cappuccino singing the new Adele song with tears in your eyes. Between all this you somehow don’t notice your Toyota is practically perpendicular with the parking lines. I know those mirrors on the side of the car can be confusing but they are there to help.

Shouldn’t there be a test you have to pass before you’re allowed to back-in to a spot. I say you should be required to complete at least 20 successful back-ins before you’re allowed to perform one in an actual parking lot. Keying all cars that cross the lines should be mandatory.

This isn’t in any way directed towards any particular gender, it’s just as common to see some massive pick up truck taking up 3 spots as it is to see a cute little cobalt. The point is that if you can’t back-in, don’t back-in. If the concept of placing an object between two straight lines is too confusing for you, maybe you should be taking the bus.
