The Parking God and the Parking Demon

Two of the video clips that have gone viral in China this month are of drivers parking their cars. One man in Fujian Province is exceptionally good and has come to be known as the “Parking God of Fujian Province” because of his skill in maneuvering his car into an insanely tiny space.

I love the way he just exits and re-enters the parking space just to show off!

And if that man in Fujian is the “Parking God,” then perhaps this driver in Jiangsu, who obviously has absolutely no idea how to get his car out of the parking space, should get the title “Parking Demon.” 15 times he hits the other cars!!

It reminds me of the time years ago when I was out with a friend who had just gotten her license. We got into a situation that required a 3-point turn and she didn’t have a clue how to do it. “I don’t know how to go backwards,” she told me. She eventually made me get behind the wheel and execute the maneuver.
