Wow: Woman Spends A Minute And A Half Trying To Park In A Spot She Just Needed To Pull Into

October 16, 2017


This is some security camera footage of a woman in a subcompact car trying to park it on the side of the street and failing time and time again. All she needed to do was just pull in, it's not even a proper parallel parking situation. Eventually the car in front of the car she's trying to park behind leaves, and she decides maybe that spot will be easier and goes for it instead. Or, who knows, maybe she's just playing a really serious game of the curb is lava.

Keep going for the video while I try to pretend I didn't fail my driving test three times and have to wait six months to take it again and only passed that time with one point above failing. Also if somebody could speed this video up and add the Benny Hill music that would be great.

Thanks to MB, who drifts into every parking spot like you're supposed to.

    She only uses two steering angles; full lock left or full lock right!

    It is really frustrating. Like, even if you aren't the world's best driver it SHOULD be blatantly obvious that if you keep the wheel turned to the same direction that your car is just gonna go back and forth in the same space when you drive and then reverse.

    She should have listened to George.

    I can see the Geometric computations grinding through her skull...

    "Let's see, the hypotenuse of the angle of front of the car is the inverse of the reciprocal of transversal AB if I turn my wheel like this and sacrifice a chicken under a full moon, then my car should just about......wait, is that another spot up there? Fuck it...!"

    Wait, in which country do they drive on the right side of the street *and* the right side of the car?? I smell a Russian disinformation campaign behind this.

  • Wilf Smith

    Definitely UK. Vast majority of urban side streets in the UK that do not have off street parking are like this - narrow enough only for one car to drive down at a time, so everyone drives in the middle of the road.

    Numberplate format on the red car indicates it's UK. And in fact, youtube video description states that it's in Southend, Essex. Most likely it's just a narrow residential street where cars can easily park on either side; and a main road to the left would explain why most of the cars face to the right of the video frame.

    ooh, the southend!

    Build something that's idiot-proof and the world just builds a better idiot.

    I actually had a college professor warning our class about exactly that about 20 years ago. He compared clicking on WIndows icons to Egyptians using Hieroglyphics rather than written words. He would rant about it for entire classes and was really annoying.Turned out he was fairly correct though.

    You should have ended with a windows icon.
