First our team allegiance, now this.

Can we get married in your State?

Point being, it's purely logic. Why would anyone back INTO TRAFFIC?

Dafuq!

Poll?

Backing in to a spot is for the pros, or those with backup cameras. Otherwise don't do it and waste everyone's time.

Head in parking means you're backing out into traffic, possibly into one of those morons who treats a parking lot like a racetrack. Backing into a spot means that the area has limited potential for accidents, also allowing you to clearly see your exit from the space. Only a complete ****wit parks head in.
I mostly agree with this. Backing in is superior, it takes about 2 seconds longer to park, but makes getting out much safer. The only time I don't back in anymore is in the parking lots with angled slots and grocery shopping since I need access to the trunk.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

How about the pull through? All the speed of head in parking plus the benefits of backing in parking when it is time to leave.

I seriously get a erection when I have a awesome pull through spot lined up. I have to turn the ac on high after i park and point it at my pants so I can get out of the car.

I think that's why car manufacturers came up with ventilated seats for A/C, no?

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

The pull through is a no-brainer. I'll park a little further away if it means being able to pull through.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

I seriously could pull through all day long. Sometimes I go to Wal Mart and just drive around looking for pull through opportunities.

Seriously the best things in life are FREE.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

I get seriously annoyed when I'm the passenger in a car and the drive doesn't pull through (assuming we don't need to access to the truck). It just makes no sense to me.

Re: What REALLY grinds your gears?

I want to know what happened to Chico's snake.

I was serious about the trash can-and-mouse trap. I've seen it work before.

If running out of lives in Candy Crush grinds your gears, read this: How To Cheat Your Way To Unlimited Lives On Candy Crush

Also, you can reset the time back to normal as soon as you start playing again.

Mentally im getting prepared. Im not gonna walk back into another snake ambush. This time when we get in the ring, its gonna be a cage match. My neighbor already asked if he could shoot it and i asked "Shoot it in my house?" He of course answer yes.

I just wish I had my phone to get a picture or video, but my phone became a causality in my fight against soberity over the weekend.

I'm all about backing in. The issue for me is this:

Backing in (I've been doing it consistently for the past 5 years): Since it's all memory repetition at this point, it takes minimal holdup, if any at all. And getting out is a breeze, all I have to do is wait until I see an opportunity and then I'm out.

Pulling in: Sure it's slightly easier, but then when I'm trying to leave (esp. in Wegman's day-or-night jam packed parking lot, it goes like this:

Try to back out, have to stop for family/kid running around parking lot/old people/walking slow because they are being chatty on the cell people/tired people slowly pushing their big ass grocery cart people/tngaf (teens not giving a ****)/dickhead driver treating the parking lot like his/her personal speedway (a lot of those at wegmans)/insert other personal scenario here.

Just today I watched a chick on her cell drive around a car loading groceries, gas it through the stop sign posted in the middle of the road in front of Wegmans, and then give all the people heading in/out disgusted looks like they were the ones doing something wrong.

Not giving a **** is at an all-time high, every day I see someone do a stupid driving maneuver. I just saw a lady put her car in reverse and back up about ten feet to see if she could get in the turn lane, before she saw the traffic pulling up and blocking her in, all because she needed to turn but didn't recognize the road we were at. Is going 1 block and making a right turn there really going to ruin her day? Probably not but when you don't know where you're at and you're driving, people get super desperate. Like "make a hard right from the left hand lane on the highway across 4 lanes of traffic to make your exit just before the jersey barrier starts" desperate.

TL;DR: If I have to make a minor inconvenience to someone in a parking lot while I back in, so be it.
