Backing Up

9 Sep

I have never understood the male habit of backing into parking spaces, but I have been assured by a friend (who is in a position to know) that this must be a thing only straight men do. The Squire once spent enough time trying to back into a parking space he could have hit very easily head in that we were late for a meeting. I needed a Band-Aid for my tongue by the time we got out of the car.

Today I was at a local grocery store, where, due to space constraints, one row of parking slots is only one space deep. While I was unloading my cart, a fellow drove past me, and then backed into the space next to me.

I don’t get it. He could have driven in from the other side.

And people think women are hard to understand.
