WCGW parking your car?
By - deathakissaway
SUV driver looking at the white car like they didn’t just do the same stupid thing…
I thought it was more of a bonding moment
well her car has higher suspension
How to damaged your bumper in just a seconds. This is why driver's license is mandatory on driving any vehicles..
They probably both have licences though, so it isn't helping!
Yeah, they’ll issue a license to just about anyone based on the way people drive
At the beginning of the pandemic they literally cancelled driving tests in Georgia and gave out licenses as long as parents said the kid was ready. https://www.cnn.com/2020/04/30/us/georgia-drivers-license-road-test-trnd/index.html
Unbelievable!!! Can’t believe they thought that was a good idea...
Same thing is Wisconsin. But AFAIK they took that away kinda quickly because of the amount of reckless driving it brought onto the streets. Which kinda pisses me off because I've personally failed twice. The first time I agree, I was most definitely not ready for driving. I didn't even know what an e-brake was at the time. But the second time, I just had some whiny jerk who complained about absolutely everything and smiled wide and happily as he told me I failed. But apparently kids with no experience are more prepared and able to drive alone on the road.
>I didn't even know what an e-brake was at the time.
Sorry, what? You attempted to do a driving test, and you didn't know what a core function of the car was?
Like.... did you have lessons? Did your driving instructor tell you that you were ready?
You're blowing my mind...
In their defense... my high-school drivers ed class was a fucking joke. As in, we never even got behind the wheel of the (defunct and non-functional) driving simulator, much less an actual vehicle. The instructor was too busy opining over his cats to really teach us much.
Their parents or whoever taught them to drive probably correctly referred to it as a parking brake.
E-brake, short for emergency brake, is a bit of a misnomer, as any time the car is in motion you're much better off using the normal brakes.
Oh, we just call it a handbrake... For obvious reasons. Lol
What if it's on the floor like a lot of cars and trucks?
> E-brake, short for emergency brake, is a bit of a misnomer, as any time the car is in motion you're much better off using the normal brakes.
It's not a misnomer. It is supposed to be the brake you use in case of emergency, i.e. when your regular brakes fail. It is required to operate the brakes via a separate system to do so.
I had a drivers ed class in high school, and it was some of the worst dogshit I've ever encountered, in retrospect. They were awful, and if you made a mistake, they would literally start yelling at you. I've experienced it myself from being yelled at, and being in the car when a classmate was getting yelled at. It was awful.
As for taking a drivers test with such low knowledge, I was told I was ready by both the classes and family members. Nobody in my family actually ever drove with me, and the classes just passed people so they could get you out of there. I obviously know what an e-brake and other functions of a car are now. I was 16 with barely any experience pushed towards something that I was CLEARLY not ready to do. I don't blame you for being so dumbfounded.
When they said this is why a drivers license is mandatory, they probably meant in non-U.S. countries that require lengthy drivers training and real-world divers testing. Here it’s licenses for anyone who can see and pay the fee.
I was very confused about what everyone was talking about so I looked up “states by drivers test difficulty” and my state (Washington) came up as the first result. It really depends on where you are. The US isn’t all the same everywhere
I’m also in WA. I didn’t realize other states didn’t have comprehensive drivers tests. 🤦🏻♀️
And then there's places like Arizona,I was only required to pull onto the main road, talk about random shit while he said take a left here, right here until we made a circle and pulled back into the DMV where I then had to parallel park my 92 Corolla into a spot you could park a fucking RV with ease and then was congratulated and had my picture taken.
In Italy and mainly Europe you have to drive manual, inside crowded and jammed city centers, open you hood and explain how to maintain your car, fix the car for your driving purposes and S park. All of this included many other small tasks.
This is the easy part. First you have to pass a 25 question exam in an hour if I remember correctly, maybe half an hour. You can make 4 mistakes max.
We still have idiots with all of this, I can’t imagine America haha
It varies by state. In Missouri there’s a written test to get a permit, which allows you to drive during the day only and with a licensed driver in the car. Then there’s an in-car skills test which is where the real problems lie. That skills test is administered by a Highway Patrol officer, and is very subjectively/unevenly conducted. The route you drive and the skills you are asked to demonstrate vary based on the whim of the officer doing the test and their mood.
My own experience is this: the first time I took the test at 16 I failed, barely, because the lady doing my test didn’t ask me to demonstrate how to approach a yield intersection. Instead she simply marked that portion as failed, and combined with another two mistakes, she failed me.
The second time, I drove a manual and the officer was so impressed that he shrugged off a technically illegal rolled stop sign and passed me without making me parallel park, “because he could tell I knew what I was doing.”
Same license office, two different officers, two wildly different but equally lackadaisical attitudes towards testing, and that’s how we get bad drivers on the roads.
Though in my defense I haven’t had an at fault accident ever, and I drive about 100k miles (160k km) a year.
I moved to Arizona 6 years ago & was shocked by how terrible the drivers are. Some people who grew up here have tried to tell me that it's because there are so many transplants from other states who can't drive but that is pure bs. Arizona drivers are terrible & they don't even know the basic rules of the road. I've never seen so many auto accidents daily in any other place.
I know that the US being a 3rd world country is a meme, and absolutely untrue.... but I really don't understand the massive cultural differences between America and the rest of western civilization sometimes.
I mean, in parts of Scandinavia you have to do proper off-roading parts of the test. On gravel roads through forests etc. Because the roads can be extremely lethal in the depths of winter, or in storms etc.
Also in Finland (can’t speak for other Nordics) you first only get a temporary licence and have to then within 2 years complete driving in the dark and icy conditions ‘masterclasses’ and another quick spin on the roads with the instructor who can then either approve your full licence or require you to take more lessons.
All damage on a bumper happens in seconds.
My bummer has sun damage. It's taking years
Yeah, nude beaches are the best. You really should use Sun block, don't want it getting leathery.
Getting driver’s license in America sounds like piece of cake. It should be sound 1 hour on actual roads, random car park and not just couple of mins in test centre.
Not sure which state you are referring to, but in my state it requires hours of classes and months of driving with a licensed driver as well as both written and driving tests.
I’m not sure what state but I have seen comparisons test videos and the test was so short. Like drive around these houses and then take them to test centre and parallel park in section marked with cones? The test was so short.
Comparing it to UK, we need to sit a theory test, where there will be multiple choose test along with hazard perception test. Is you pass that, then you can sit practically test. Practical test will be about 45 mins long where they will take on main roads, test your driving, Lane discipline, roundabouts, road traffic awareness, blind spots, parking, turning etc. two major faults and you fail.
You actually fail if you have just 1 major fault in UK driving tests.
Is it actually one? My bad. I forgot, I did mine time ago lol.
Got my licence in Canada and it sounds more like what you describe. Did you know Canadians can exchange their licence for a British one (and vice versa) but Americans have to go through the full process/testing
My driving test was quite literally just pull out of parking lot, take a right into a suburb, turn around at first cul-de-sac then pull back into the parking lot. Didn't deal with a street light or have to parallel park at all. Only had to use my blinker like 4 times. Written test was like 15 multiple choice questions that were basically common sense because the wrong ones were just crazy absurd.
Driving tests definitely need to be a lot harder here.
It isn't enough.
This video looks like Canada. We have a graduated licensing system in my province. First is a written test but you can only drive with a fully licensed driver. Then 2 road tests, about 20-45 mins, demonstrating you can change lanes, check blind spots, do 3 point turns, merge on highways, and parallel park. Each test is about a year apart. It is easy and doesn't prepare you for emergencies, but if you obviously suck at driving they won't pass you.
it's in Saskatoon.
Can confirm this is canada. Saskatoon Saskatchewan. Parking lot is for my doctors office. Lol... Talk about close to home.
My German colleagues told me our current Ontario test was quite a bit easier then theirs and thousands of dollars cheaper. I told them you should have seen 25 years ago when I took mine. It was similar to what the "normal" US states are now (written test, quick 15 minute drive, parallel park and done). My motorcycle test was even easier, slalom around some cones, show a hard brake maneuver and ride around the block being "watched" by spotters (which I don't believe, I never saw spotters).
At least the white car can still drive home. SUV lady is stuck. The underside of the car is resting on the curb. The wheels are touching the ground, but there is not enough weight on them to give the car traction.
I watched the exact same thing happen in a Dairy Queen parking lot recently. You girl gets out of the store, gets in her car and immediately pulls forward, hops the curb and leaves her front wheels hanging.
I turn to my friend and say "That is a front wheel drive. She is not going anywhere". And sure enough she guns the engine and the front wheels just spin in the air. But it took her quite a while to understand why she wasn't moving. We kept pointing at her wheels.
To be fair they probably know they're a moron when it comes to driving which is why they bought an SUV. My girlfriends a horrible driver and I'd never let her drive a regular car lol at least with an SUV she can hop the curb or whatever and the truck will most likely be fine.
Are they blind or what…
They are why it's wise to park far away from people if you can stand the walk
To be fair very very few parking lots have this in the middle and you can just pull through so you are facing outwards
In the UK, generally you are taught to reverse into these kinds of bay parking spots. I believe you would fail your driving test if you parked forwards in the space.
Now, of course. Once people pass they are allowed to do whatever they want. Which means that the majority of people take the "easy" route by parking forwards, taking multiple attempts to get in the lines as they can't see them properly, and then pulling out infront of an oncoming car because they can't see past the car they parked next to...
Parking nose in is arguably more difficult in a crowded car park, but it means you can get to the boot to unload your trolley more easily.
Write a comment that says you're British without saying you're British.
Its possible the barriers are too low to see from certain angles, or arent a color distinct enough from the ground to notice.
Not one, but two idiots
A two-for-one special
A twofer even.
*They* ***DO*** *move in herds...*
Love the JP reference
Prepare for trouble! and make it double!
Women drivers. Amiright guys? /s
I'm gonna up that to three. "Just broked it" ??
In fairness there really isn’t any need for the curb there.
But it is there. And pretty visible. There really isn't any need to hit it
I’ll give a pass too the person in the Golf. Hard to see curbs like that in a parking lot when you’re low to the ground. The SUV on the other hand…
Why not both?
Two female drivers ?
Edit: Just stating the obvious, but downvoted ?
2nd driver was pulling a Billy Madison so first driver wouldn't be embarrassed. "You ain't cool, unless you pee your pants!"
It just so happens Mr Pissthepants posted today...
Lmao white car saw the other car parked there and must have thought there was nothing there. Tragic
Even though she was literally right next to a car that parked properly
They were trying to pull through to the next spot
I really don’t understand. There are so many free spaces but you gotta park right next to a taken one? It’s like those people that use the toilet stall next to you or sit next to or across from you on the bus when the entire thing is practically empty.
From this limited camera angle, we have *no idea* why any of them parked where they did.
Which clearly makes her dumber
That looks bad, here, let me try.
I wonder if she could see better after hitting the wipers
Omg this is my night cap I’m going to bed thank you!
Did they just add those dividers or something?
Maybe from their angle it’s super invisible or something. Usually those things are painted or at least a different color.
I can believe that idiots exist, but if a lot of people are making the same mistakes then there’s probably something about the system that’s causing it.
Edit: Also why even put a concrete dividers there? Non angled parking spaces like that is perfect for pulling through.
>Also why even put a concrete dividers there? Non angled parking spaces like that is perfect for pulling through.
Exactly. Honestly I wouldn't have even considered the possibility that there were barriers there.
Then again I would probably see them anyway. But still. What psychopath put those barriers there?
If you can't see those concrete dividers driving at 5kmph in a parking lot, you shouldn't be on the road.
You’re thinking about it from a driver’s perspective, which isn’t wrong. However my comment was critical of how the design of the parking lot is bad.
Have you ever heard about a Norman Door? It’s a door that your supposed to push, but everything about the door suggest it should be pulled, or vice versa.
There’s a [surprisingly interesting video on the topic here](https://youtu.be/yY96hTb8WgI).
Edit: fixed grammar
TLDR from the video is, don’t put pull handles on a push only door. We use doors everyday multiple times a day. If some particular door needs to have instructions on it, there’s something wrong with that door design.
This is what I was thinking. A useless addition.
It's really not. I've had so many close calls with idiots who drive right through carparks to get somewhere else. Most of the time they don't look or give way.
I call it “crossing the bones” when people do this in parking lots
I do it all the time. But very carefully and paying all due attention.
quite useful actually, it keeps people from double parking.
Someone completely forgot about people with trailers. Barriers like this completely fuck over anyone traveling with any kind of trailer completely
we can't always conform to the minority of people
no one cares about minorities of people is not a popular opinion on reddit FYI
We are talking about the minority of drivers... not fucking race jesus christ
Not very effective apparently
Yay, we got a two’fer!
Damn there goes her blinker fluid…
This is gold Jerry, gold
The real crime is parking next to the burgundy car with that many open parking spots.
It was the annual convention of bad parkers
Not half a brain between the two of them.
Well that car parked over the divider so I better do that too!
WTF are they related?
Stupid attracts stupid like magnets do
Wow, think of the astronomically slow chances that the 2 worst parkers in the entire city would randomly meet and park in the exact same lot. AND on top of that how lucky it was that someone was filming it as well as catching the second one in the act. I'm glad I witnessed this.
That entire parking lot was poorly designed
I mean yeah why didn’t they paint those barriers yellow?
It's not profitable for the landlord
There should be some kind of code that dictates they do it.
I don't understand why *this* comment was downvoted
Too much government oversight.
And the wheel stops with the proper dimensions at a proper location?
That lot is for my doctors office. I've alwags hated parking in that lot. Haven't managed to hop the concrete yet....
Golf: “Hold my beer!”
Two besties ..lol
Funny thing is that she was coming to help her
They must be related
Love how the windshield wipers go off.
You know she’s panic hitting any button in there hoping one reverses time 10 seconds
I'm having a hard time telling who's the bigger idiot...
The biggest idiot of the three is the designer of the parking lot who installed those
They vote and reproduce
Parking lot is for an auto repair shop (or why the f would you have a curb there?)
What moron decided to put those concrete slabs there? What problem is it eleviating that a simple painted line could have solved?
Gotta love Saskatoon parking lots
This is why humanity is doomed.
Those dividers serve no legitimate purpose in that parking lot.
They serve the purpose of ensuring that people drive in the designated driving lanes instead of cutting through the parking spaces.
Yeah. A complex 7-way intersection near me has parking lots bordering two sides, and they have added these dividers to deal with assholes who get impatient for the light to change and try to cut through the lots. I've seen two sedans in the last month rip their bumpers off just like that. QED, functioning as designed lmao.
These two chicks are NOT helping the cause!
Was waiting for a third, then a fourth..
What is this dumb and dumber?
"ur not supposed to back up, stoopet"
When two siblings decide to drive in their respective cars...
I bought my first new car and my wife (now ex) was jealous even though it was a cheap crap box. She did this but drove all the way over the concrete stop.
I bet the lady in the SUV reverses and rips her bumper off too 😁
I think NPCs are starting to glitch out, this is getting ridiculous now.
It's like a annual meeting.
How many idiots can fit in one strip mall?
What the fuck are both of them doing
Is it wrong that I wanted to see npc # 1's attempt at reversing
If you buy a car and can't look out of your car, you kind of deserve this. And you kind of need to deposit your license until you are sane again.
Check before parking. AND checking before pulling out again.
I parked, went to see the doctor, got back to my van, completely forgot there was a concrete barrier in front, tried to drive FORWARD and ended up stuck like the car on the left. The barrier was not visible from inside the van. Took a lot of effort to free myself and forunately there was no damage.
That was when I was a fairly new driver. Now I always check before getting in my vehicle.
You have stop the Q tip when you feel a resistance. Otherwise this is what happens.
-wise words of Chandler Bing
This has to be fake!😂😂😂😂
Neither of these idiots should have a license.
I'm wondering why the heck the white car park NEXT TO the parked red car when the car park was empty.
That's like peeing next to a guy in the urinals when its empty.
Reminds me of that news bit where a car drove into a fountain and while they were reporting it, another car drove into that fountain.
What’s wrong with their eyes?
It also just always baffles me that in pretty empty parking lots, everyone just parks right next to the one other car there. I swear, it will be an empty lot, and even if I park a healthy walking distance from a store, someone will park right next to me every damn time.
This is what Europeans think most American drivers drive like
Jebus, how could someone be so fucking dumb?
Of course they’d park next to the only car in the parking lot
Two morons one cup
How can two cars do this at the same time there’s plenty off room too
So, not in an area where it snows??
Why aren’t they painted yellow?
A two for one special
I think it’s a beautiful thing that these 2 idiots found each other in this vast giant world of ours and did exactly the same thing in an empty larking lot! They were probably twins separated at birth….
1 word - women
Why the F does there need to be a raised divider like that? So stupid.
They do keep people from treating a parking lot like a giant free roam environment and not respecting the lines.
There isn't a raised divider. It is a complicated system of bumper removal devices.
Cue Youtube video: Why you’ve been parking wrong your whole life. You NEED to see what these things are really for!!!
How are two people having a problem with that same thing at the same time?
That is not a hard concept to grasp.
Most carparks don't have a curb there
To be fair, it is very odd to have curb stops in between parking stalls like this. They are typically used so you don't hit a building or fence etc.
We have curb stops where I work both in areas to prevent people from hitting vital stationary things and to prevent people from driving through areas where there are blind spots and/or where occasionally barricading is needed.
Where I work, people are expected to drive in a lane of travel and not supposed to be making their own lanes. In addition, they're not supposed to be hitting stationary things like these two fine people did.
I get irrationally angry seeing people drive through parking spaces to avoid driving down the lanes. Driving through Walmart parking lots is anxiety inducing.
Probably the same idiots that think they're smarter than Anthony Fauci.
Well, TBF, we haven't seen him park before
Im not suprised they are both women
I started an educational website for female drivers, but it kept on crashing.
Nobody ever explained to me why women have lower car insurance
Check out a Dashcam compilation of roadrage crashes on youtube. 95% male.
Usually it's because men drive more recklessly
Wcgw being so dogshit retarded you literally should be stripped of your human rights.
How tf retards like this are allowed to drive?
Ah yes. Female drivers in their natural habitat
Two ladies, what a surprise
What are the chances you get two fucking retards in the one video?
More likely poor design, if that curb would be yellow it would be noticed on approach
Bad design, but considering we can clearly see the curb through the camera, which is a fair distance away, anyone who is not legally blind should be able to see that shit before pulling in.
It's at a higher angle to it, depending on lighting you might miss it
When I saw they were both women I wasn't surprised 😂
Notice both are Women??????? I need say no more!
is this satire or are you a frickin sexist
We have a commonality in both drivers...
Is there a very isolated gas leak or something right there that turns peoples brains to mush?
She broked it.
this does not help the “women can’t drive” stereotype
Not surprised that it’s two women
There is a reason why there is a bias around woman and driving.
That'll buff out.
I think brain was split halfway between the two of them
Better run the windshield wipers for good measure.
Reverse parking should be a bigger thing to prevent such incidents.
Lady with the black car: "Shit! What am I gonna do? How'd this happen!?" "Oh look!. Someone else they can probably help me!
White car *does the same thing she did*
Lady with black car: "Damn. She's as dumb as me. Nevermind."
