“My grandma’s the most careful, safe driver in the world. You put her in a rental car, and she’s doing doughnuts in the K-Mart parking lot!- Jeff Foxworthy.
This week’s Wednesday challenge on partner Susan and my site is the word PARALLEL.
In math, parallel means two lines that never intersect — think of an equal sign. Figuratively, parallel means similar, or happening at the same time. A story might describe the parallel lives of three close friends.
My own thoughts concern Parallel Parking.
Parallel Parking – Sometimes Easier Said Than Done
Are you one of those drivers whose heart rhythm quickens when faced with the terrifying prospect of having to parallel park your vehicle in an area where parking space is premium and the option of frantically searching for a more user-friendly space is non-existent?
Parallel parking is considered to be one of the most stressful and difficult skills for new drivers to learn, and “experienced” drivers to re-learn. I know folks who will do anything to avoid having to park their vehicle in cramped quarters.
While parallel parking is a required part of most driving tests, several states in the US have dropped it as a requirement due to the fact that over stressed drivers experience adverse health effects when it comes to their hands-on driver road test.
This week Susan and I encourage you to tell us of your own experiences and feelings when faced with the prospect of parallel parking your vehicle.
Do you dread the prospect of having to do so or are you an experienced driver who can confidently park your vehicle just about anywhere you choose?
As always, our challenge is flexible so please interpret the challenge in a way that suits you – Words, Pictures, Poetry or Rhyme.
