Day 32: Parallel Park

I have found over the years that I actually enjoy parallel parking.  I seek out opportunity to do so.  When I find a spot that is just barely bigger than my car I view it as a challenge.  I know a lot of other people out there do not share the same sentiment. I found one of these people today.  After parking my car downtown, while I was getting out of my car I noticed someone attempting to parallel park.  They were clearly struggling.  After witnessing the 4th or 5th unsuccessful attempt, I felt like I should try and help.  I walked over to the car and got the driver's attention.  I asked if she wanted help parking.  Now, when asking I was just assuming that I would just stand there and direct her where to go.  This is not what she assumed.  She jumped out of her car and told me and thanked me for the help.  I took her cue and hopped in her car. No big deal, but I successful parked her car the first attempt.  :)
