What Is Worse Than One Woman Parking?
Published on Wednesday, August 10, 2011 by

Don’t you just hate sloppy drivers?  You know the ones… the people who can’t seem to find their way in to a parking space with two hands and a roadmap?

Funny thing… I received this text message from a co-worker just a few mornings ago:

“Check out this parking job.. Probably female driver…..”

Oh goody!  He attached a picture along with the text message.  Don’t you just love a good fail picture?

I eagerly scrolled down and… ummmmm…

bad parking

Dash it all.  It’s my car.

In my defense, I swear those first three spots have crooked lines.  And it was 6:30 in the morning when I maneuvered that baby in.

You can only imagine my great joy when I pulled in to the gym parking lot only to see a kindred spirit.

Park on baby.  Park on!

  • I’ve seen a lot of guys that can’t park work a hoot either.  Okay, maybe a few more gals than guys, but they have their moments too.  Hubby said it get harder to get in those lines when we get older.  That makes sense since most everything will get harder to do when we get older.  Just lovely,

    Have a terrific day.  🙂

  • OMG. Female drivers. They’re just a nightmare, aren’t they? I’m laughing because I’ve done this many times myself. Hahaha.

    • You know what it is? We are TOO BUSY to worry about perfect parking jobs, right?

  • I can’t park. I have a depth perception problem. It takes me a couple of tries to get in between the lines. Why do they draw the lines so close together anyway? Geez, give a girl a couple more feet to park that baby.

    HAHAHHAAHHHAHAHAHA! OMG Katherine, that made me laugh my butt off – how FUNNY!

    I know they say that women don’t park (especially parallel) as well as men, but I’ve seen a lot of bad park jobs by guys too.

    Hope you’re having a faaaaabulous Thursday!

    • Ron, I wish you could have seen me parallel park my old Camry. You would have stood up and APPLAUDED because I ROCKED THAT CAR when I parked. I can usually park my big fat Quest too, but on this particular morning… well….. at least I got a good laugh out of it, right?

  • I have to admit, poor parking is one of my pet peeves.  In the area where I live, the parking lots are really bad so when someone parks poorly, it throws off everyone.

    • Anne, I am SO GUILTY of a very-bad-parking-job that day. Actually I SWEAR those parking spaces, the first three, are crooked and that when you line your car up in front, the back is bad. If I ever don’t get my ginormous van in quite right I back up and straighten out… it is like driving a tank. But apparently I didn’t have a clue that morning. Guilty as charged. If I was in the small town though I PROMISE I would always check!

  • I was going to get all up on my high horse about the macho “Probably female driver…” comment but then….well….

    You have a great number of talents, Katherine. So what if parking isn’t one of them! 🙂

    • Ahhh yes Nicky, I busted myself publicly. Actually my parking isn’t very bad at all, but on this particular day, I STUNK. But it was worth it all because I got a GREAT text message about it that cracked me up. If you can’t laugh at yourself, then what’s the purpose, right? 🙂

  • Guys, gals, it doesn’t matter.  Some people can’t park to save themselves.  Some don’t care and some are just lazy.  I park usually park decently, but when I miss and come out and see my car, I’m embarrassed.  I just want to get in and drive away before someone sees who did that lousy parking job.  In defense of bad parking, sometimes it’s those around them who parked badly.  I parked centered between 2 SUVs.  When I came out they had left, leaving me very nearly on the line.  Grrrr!

    • Linda, when I had my Camry I could park like nobody’s business. But my Quest has no turning radius whatsoever so I have to do a few turns to get in even large spots. Normally I am pretty good or I even myself up. But this time my lack of sleep gave me parking blindness I guess!!

  • I think most people do it on purpose because they just don’t care. I think they feel like their better than everyone else. I’d love to whack the side of their car with something. It’s the same for people that don’t use blinkers, they have this driving complex.

    • I HATE it when people don’t use their blinkers. As far as parking, I can usually park on a dime. My problem this time? Five hours of interrupted sleep and an early shift. What can I say? 🙂

  • Well worst when you stuck right behind women driver

  • Your co-worker is a sexist idiot who probably thinks that the ability to drive is coded into men’s Y chromosomes. Anyone can have parking mishaps, it definitely didn’t happen because you’re a woman. Happy parking!
