I hate to perpetuate the stereotype of women being bad drivers (I myself have an impeccable driving record), but this lady is really living up to it!!!

Oh wow that was bad... I am dumbfounded that someone can be so stupid when it comes to getting a car out of a parking spot. I will never feel bad about doubting my parallel parking abilities again! (Which I am perfectly fine at, I just HATE doing it with an audience!)

How on earth did she manage to get her car IN there without doing damage?

I want to know what idiot designed that parking lot!!! There''s no way any of those cars can safely get out of there - there''s no way it''s designed to regulations. That''s insane. I mean it''s sad the woman doesn''t know the abilities of her car and how far out her bumpers are, but still... terrible design!!

True- The spots do look a little tight.

If you can''t drive a big car...don''t buy a big car
My thoughts exactly! Always cracks me up/annoys the crud out of me when I see people roaming around parking lots in SUVs and they CLEARLY have NO IDEA about the boundaries of their vehicle and are constantly taking up 1 1/2 lanes!!

I agree with Strawberries- it doesn''t look like that parking lot is up to spec. It would be tough for anyone driving something other than a Honda Fit to get out of those spaces on the first try even if you do know the boundaries of your car very well.

I always park so it''s easy to get out because honestly, I bet someone could video me too sometimes. My SUV has almost no rear vision, and although it''s small, it does handle like a truck. Still, I don''t think I''ve ever done anything like *that* before! Gah! (i have been known to turn the wheel the wrong way consistently....)

Amen to that here - even a smaller car would have problems. But it certainly would help if she knew which way to turn her wheels...
She eventually figured it out. Haha I thought at one point those guys were gonna come offer to do it for her... then they got in their own car and left, haha.
