Friday Funnies

While visiting NJ last week, I saw two different examples of parallel parking outside a Panera Bread in Westfield, NJ.

The back right tire of this car was on the sidewalk; the front right was smack against the curb.  (The car had NY plates.)IMG_0403IMG_0406 Less than a half hour later, another car was parked in the SAME spot – not on the sidewalk or anywhere near the curb – but over the parking space line AND nearly in the traffic lane .  (NJ plates on this car.) IMG_0407This is WHY carrying a small digital camera everywhere is handy. You never know what you will see OR where.

when hubby sees tings like this he says it looks like they abandoned the car and did not park it. this is exactly why i take my camera every where i go, never know where you will find a post

I wonder if the driver was male or female. Probably. :-)

I can just imagine both of those cars pulling up and parking. The first agonized and finally gave up with their wheel on the curb. The second pulls up, stops and gets out and runs in the the store. Funny stuff.

Much to my wife's disgust, I always blame these kinds of things on "Women Drivers."

It looks as if we're parking just as bad all over the world :-) :-)

Have a great day!
