If you're just a valet, shouldn't you rephrase this to say, "hot cars from work that I get to park"?

worked a private party today at a 4 million dollar house. all upscale luxury and sports cars. S550, 750il, m3, carrera, audi a8, lexus and acura galore, vw, etc. About 50 cars total. Started work at 6, ended at 11:30. car owners gave decent tips we made out with 65 a person, and then the owners of the house gave us 100 each so that made our night . we even got to eat with them very nice people

Lol. The kid is so proud of his parking job Anybody who has a driver's license should be able to park any car properly, dumbass.

And not to burst your little fantasy bubble, but I've driven most of those and some way nicer cars, and actually to destinations, not to the parking lot.

well half of the people i know wouldnt be able to get an s500 mercedes into a parking space straight, let alone backwards, or the s550 4motion I had last night, escalade, carrera, and 750li...shit a few of my friends wouldnt even be able to see over the wheel, or get as close to the car behind em as i can.

You should be proud of yourself then. You're less dumb than your dumb friends.

As most people with a driving license should agree, it's actually alot easier to reverse in to a space than go in forwards.

I disagree. Every time I try backing up, I end up like an inch from the car beside me, and can't get out lol. It's weird because I was great at it when I went to take my license test lol.

It's easier to straighten up the car when reversing in....Orat least that's how I see it anyway, lol. I always get it right first time though, because I'm good like that

I go in to spaces forwards if we are about to do alot of food shopping though because of boot (trunk...) access

I disagree with that whole license thing. I dont know how it is anywhere else but around where I live your allowed up to 15 strikes, points whatever you call them before you fail. We have so many idiots on our roads today it sucks and they act like it's your fault when there not paying attention when lane changing. Anyways ok you get to park nice cars woo hoo cookie for you I rather go up to oregon where my dad is a mechanic and get a job with him where you drive the cars afterwards and not just park them.

If you're part of the 8% that rock out everyday, put this in your signature

Owning a DSM is like having retarded kids. You get angered and frustrated by them yet you love them to death.

If you know how to park, its much easier to reverse park. If you don't know how to park, you don't have a chance reverse parking.
