“The Slice” column in today’s Spokesman-Review addresses the issue of parallel parkers. According to columnist Paul Turner, we have a lack of drivers who can actually do a decent job of parallel parking. In my experience, it’s not actually paralell parking that’s hard, it’s getting out later when someone parks three inches from your back bumper. Happened to me this morning downtown and then I look like a new driver doing an 18-point turn to get out of the spot. What’s your experience with parallel parking?

That is why I like my Ford Escort, it is tiny enough to parallel park and have a lot of room on all sides, so easy to get out. Problem is I seldom parallel park anymore so I look like a beginner when I do it also.
Ha! It's always embarrassing getting out of your car after doing an embarrassing parking job. I always feel like someone is going to say something to me.
