LOL...I hate to give Neil more ammunition against women drivers, but....

I've actually parked this way before!  THIS IS TRUE!!

I worked in the Capitol Building in Tallahassee and parking was horrible!  We had assigned parking in a tiny, tiny parking lot.  This jerk took my parking spot, so I parked on top of him!  It looked sort of like this.

Yep, I'm serious.  It didn't look quite as bad as this photo, but I did run over his car.  He had one of those really old cars that was built like a tank.  It didn't hurt his car, but it crushed in the whole back side of my truck!

That is an excellent idea!  I'm sure Nic has several hiding in his closet that I could use.  I think I'll try it tomorrow.

She sounds like great fun!!!  I bet she wouldn't be afraid to go to the mall with me!

Yes. They deploy like airbags if you drive over a cliff - or a very large tortoise.
