2. And they didn't even let us see who got out

I really wanted to see who was driving.

And, I want to see how they got themselves out of that tight spot too, when they left. Imagine if those cars in front and behind left and other cars parked closer.

Good thing they get good gas mileage, I think they used half a tank just parking.

4. The car being so small AND the space being so large

makes it impossible to feel sorry for him...

I once rented a full-sized car, which I wasn't used to driving. I was parallel parking it extra carefully with the radio on. So of course the radio plays the VERY LAST song in the universe that I needed to hear!

Though I shouldn't say much, since parallel parking's never been one of my strong suits...

26. He should have just pulled into the space, backed to center the car and turned it off.

No need to even try the parallel park procedure in that situation.

11. I didn't like the fact that they brought up that the driver is a "chick."

Because, as we all know, men are flawless drivers.

15. I'm pretty decent with parallel parking however...

I dated this guy who was the biggest douchebag and anytime I drove (which with him was most of the time since his car was a beater) and we went someplace where you had to parallel park, he was just such an asshole.

I have no problems with parking but when you have a douchebag screaming turn turn turn cut turn turn - well my parking probably would rival whomever was driving that Smart Car in the video.

At one point I would make him get out of the car anytime I had to parallel park - when I did that I could park like a charm.

19. I took my test in a 76 LeMans sedan (20') and put it in a 26' spot.

 

It boggles the mind that someone couldn't park a golf cart in the same size space.

But this person takes the cake.

12. Aren't there some states that do not include parallel parking as part of the driving test?

Although i doubt that this would excuse this person. After all, we are talking about a Smart Car in a huge space!

16. When I took driver's ed in Harrisburg PA, parallel parking was lame

I had to make a right turn and then pull in along the curb.

I taught myself how to parallel park.

18. That's when you go out and pull the other two cars right up against the SmartCar's bumpers.

20. We have become so mean that it's more important to get a mocking video than help someone

who is struggling. I didn't listen to this last night, when I did I was appalled. Be kind.

My apologies, I know you didn't film this, but I have little tolerance for mean spirited people right now. Kindness helps more but doesn't come up with "funny" videos.

21. i have a friend who refuses.........

to live in the city, because that means she would have to parallel park.

I drove a 15 passenger van this summer for a part time job, had no problem(s) parallel or vertical parking (in a cramped garage).
My father taught me that when you parallel park, drive your vehicle so that the trunk area is about at the rear driver's side of the vehicle in front, and then reverse into the parking space. It never fails.

22. That could have been me.

I failed my parallel parking test in Florida. But the tester passed me anyway. He said he was going to blame it on the car. I was driving my mother's 1959 Cadillac with the big fins, and they blocked my backward view. But I try to avoid parallel parking whenever possible.

CA doesn't (I took the test there). WA didn't even require me to take the test.
