What Some People Will Do to Get "Rock Star" Parking

Posted by on Thu, Nov 18, 2010 at 3:11 PM

Some might call this "the worst parking job of all time." Others might call it, "the best parking job of all time if one wanted to get closest to the front door and later arrested for driving shit-faced." You make the call.

@1: It looks like the driver hit the wrong pedal -- notice the car accelelrates after it hits the door.

I bet there is NO WAY drugs or alcohol were involved. Right?

Looks more to me like somebody having a medical issue at the wrong time. The guy who jumps out of the other car to check on him almost seemed like he had anticipated the other driver might have a problem.

Though yeah, he might just be hammered.

Hey, when Bill Gates, Sr. needs a parking spot, he needs a parking spot.

No drugs or drink here, I believe this is a case of DWA.

OK I said it, so sue me.

This looks a lot like something that I did when I was 17 which is why I don't drive today. And you don't want me to...

Looks like DWSDFS.* My parents had a Pet Brit (exchange student, roughly) who lived with them for her senior year in high school and did almost exactly the same thing on her first driving lesson: turned into the school parking lot and just kept turning over the curb and through the 6 foot cedar fence into our back yard. Since the car was a '69 Plymouth, it was completely unscathed--the flip-side of getting only 14 MPG.
