Oh, there’s a long list of grammar/pronunciation/spelling pet peeves...

“Verse” when you mean versus
“Mines” when you mean mine. Take that extra S and use it to say versus, versus verse.
“Peave” when you mean peeve

"Perk" when you mean "perq". But then - even my browser thinks perq is wrong - it's not. It's short for perquisite, which means benefit or bonus. Perk is more for tits.

How about people who insist on making everyone else wait so they can f--ing back into rather than drive into a parking space?

Or those who know someone is waiting to take your parking space but will still sit there for 2 minutes to finish a conversation, make sure their lipstick, hair, jewelry, etc. are all straight before they back out?

So, you prefer to wait for me to BACK out, hit another car, then wait for the PD to show up and take a report, or at least me exchange insurance info with the other driver?

Well #whippersnapper, I can see the WHOLE LOT while I begin to back into the spot, so I know there aren't any people about to smash into my car. Then I just have to inch out a bit to see the path is clear, both directions, and can get out and let you pull in. No need for me to adjust my bald head.

Whippersnappers, get off my parking lot!!!!!!

I tend to agree with the whippersnapper here. People suck at backing - but they suck more at backing into a small space than they do backing into a wide open area. I had to wait the other night while some shrivel-dick took 3 attempts to back his LT-1 Camaro into a parking spot only to drive past later and see he was 3" from one side, and 3' from the other. Dumb-arse should have just driven in and not wasted my time!

Not an excuse, but no one can see out of the backs of Camaros. I have no earthly idea why GM thought that was ok to bring to market like that

All the more reason not to back them in!

Surely the LT-1 comes with a backup camera? It came with wings and canards and every ricer addon you could imagine.

I would challenge anyone to a parking contest. From 2 stalls away I will be out of my car within 1 second at most if not faster

Then I will be gone much faster than you can back out and leave

You hit cars while backing out of a space but can back up squeeze into a tight spot?

I issued the challenge. If you are driver enough to accept, you gotta come to Cali. But you'll have to leave you firearms, and have all sorts of smog equipment installed before you cross the border. That is, ASSuming you cross east to west.

I'll come to Cali but you'll have to keep all those hipsters tied up and make sure they don't wear their man-buns.

I can back in to a spot faster than most drivers can pull in. How about those that insist on backing out of a spot without freakin looking to see if someone is walking past, or driving past?

No guarantees, I'm only one man. But I will put a 4-pack of either Bartles & James, or Whiteclaw on ice. Your choice, since you are the guest.

Not car related, but asshats that can't wait for people to get off an elevator prior to trying to get on.
