No Parking!

I think it’s a bad thing that I finally learned to touch type. I’m so much more likely than I used to be to pick on people on message boards or to write long email tirades to people who give me the impression that they are idiots. I may well be an idiot myself. But if you give me the impression that you are an idiot, well, I may just let my fingers tell you what I really think of you.

I wish that drivers in Cancun were forced to post valid email addresses on the back of their cars. You know, like those “How’s My Driving” bumper-stickers with phone numbers on them? How’s My Driving – Bitch me out at imacrappydriver@idiocy.com.

People here can’t park, nor can they get out of a parking spot once they’ve gotten into it. I especially hate those ninnies who timidly back their monstrous SUVs out of a spot but have not a clue how long their car is. So they back up until there’s only 8 feet between their car and the one behind them, and then pull forward, and then repeat until I’m completely falling asleep waiting for them to get out of the damn spot. If you are going to drive something that big you’ve gotta learn how long it is. Christ.

Actually it’s good that those morons don’t provide me with their email addresses, if they did I would spend hours each evening typing furious emails informing them that no matter how big a moron I am they are certainly more worthy of the title.

    Hey, you’d LOVE Paris. Here, people bump their way out of a parking place.

    Since there is no such thing as valet parking, the french “learn” how to parallel park by the time they’re 13 and no one has to wait 3 hours for them to get their car out of a tight spot… if it’s too close, ni modo, you bump into the car in front of you and you bump into the car behind you and you manouvre your way out! I once saw a guy actually PUSH the vehicle in front of him with his own car in order to make enough space to get out of his parking spot!

    That’s too funny. I think it’s similar in big cities like New York. I couldn’t believe the tight spots my New Yorker friends could squeeze into there.

    The driving test in the UK includes parallel parking and reversing around a corner at a constant distance from the kerb – failure to complete either manoeuvre means failing the test and, hence, no licence!

    Well, at least it’s cheap entertainment here watching folk try to park.

    Wow, I’m not sure I’d want to take THAT test, it sounds hard.

    I don’t have a Mexican license yet (my U.S. one doesn’t expire for 7 more years), but according to my husbandito when he got his license he simply had to TELL them that he knew how to drive. I think that sometimes they give written tests, but he never took one.

    And in Mexico City (for a while anyway) they were giving out licenses that never expire! They can take the license away from you if you have a wreck, but that seems a little bit late to me. They should at least check periodically that you can still SEE! Amazing.
