It’s no secret that some people in this world do not know how to properly park their cars within one parking space. Why they don’t know may always remain a secret to those of us who don’t know the person personally.
However, instead of simply huffing at them in annoyance or going to drastic measures – such as smashing into the offending car – there’s something even more fun you can do. And it all started because of a high school jock. We all know that sports cars usually mean a stuck up, spoiled brat. Or a man who has gone through his midlife crisis.
However, in the context of how this fun idea got started, it was a bright yellow Saturn convertible. They parked so that the line between the two spaces was pretty much smack dab in the center of the space…under the car. Unbelievable, right? How much common sense does it take to park in the center of your spot instead of on the sides of two spots?
Luckily for the rest of us, a man who was fed up with this happening in his area decided to actually do something about it. It involved setting a small piece of paper on the front seat of the car and moving on.
The paper says “Many three year olds have trouble staying within the lines” above a picture of a coloring book grade turtle. Below the turtle, it says “Maybe if you practice coloring this turtle, it will help with your parking”. Burn!
