Re: Whaaaaaat? Excrutiating to watch this.

I watched it last week. It was nerve racking, and stressful, and tiring, and, well, not really all that surprising. She was probably on the phone with a client. Shouldn't she be given a little grace for endangering everything and everyone around???? I mean, surely she had to take the call!

Send her and about half the people on the road back to driver draining.

Anyone who's gone off roading with me, has seen a couple of those.

Re: Whaaaaaat? Excrutiating to watch this.

We have a late model 3 series and I am continuously amazed at how tight the turning circle these cars have due to their tiny-town European upbringing.

The driver was clearly an idiot -- and a lazy one at that -- for failing to turn the wheel all the way even going the wrong way down the parking aisle. In a 3, that's an easy 3-point maneuver.

Geometry: FAIL!

Re: Whaaaaaat? Excrutiating to watch this.

^^^ lmao, thought the same exact thing. at the least park it somewhere else in that same lot and just walk away.

first one...unbelievable. i wish i had that kinda time to waste, damn.

second vid, some people will never understand why parking lot rows are directional. if that chick was handing the nice guy that parked her car her number, he should never call it. that would be a lifetime of frustration.

watching the people i share this parking lot with here at work do ok when there isnt snow on the ground, but boy howdy when the lot lines are covered, these people lose all control. it is hilarious. people cant even park in a straight line. it really is pathetic.

now this is the proper way to park a car.

I was thinking she was giving him a tip, which is kind of a joke too and only contributes to the 'status' issue lots of people have with BMWs.

That vid is awesome. I envy the skills.
