Full Contact Friday

There’s a saying in the racing world that goes something along the lines of “if you ain’t rubbing, you ain’t racing.” Well, that saying has no place in the parking lot, but that didn’t stop these parkers from trading a little paint.

Back it up, back it up, back it up. Perfect. When this modern day Marco Polo gets in the lot, beware, because a bumper kiss is a-comin’. You park like an idiot, good sir. Now peel your bumper off my Honda and get on with your day.

You know that little voice in the back of your head that whispers “go for it” when opportunity presents itself?  Sometimes it’s better left ignored. In this parking fail, the offending motorist couldn’t have it easier, and despite coming to a screeching halt, they simply couldn’t resist. Just tap it in, Happy. Just tap it in.


There’s really no words to describe this trainwreck. Everything looks to cruising along nicely, when suddenly, the driver decides they’d rather leave a parking note on every car in the lot. Parking instructions not clear, sorry I totaled your car.
