What is the sound of one piston slapping?
What is the sound of one piston slapping?

I got flagged down by an old lady in the parking garage. After pointing at my own chest, like “Me? Are you pointing at me?” I walked over to see what she wanted. She said, “How do these spots work?” referring to the parking spots. (Is that a real question?) Noticing see was squeezed in a bit on her passenger side I said, “What do you mean, is the spot too narrow?”

She says, “I don’t want to scratch this car, and I don’t want to scratch my BMW.” (Yes, she brand-name dropped BMW.) She asked me to back her out, which I obliged, but the thing is, it was not that narrow. In fact, the angle she parked at required no steering input, just had to use reverse, straight out, that’s it.


Then she thanked me and I walked away, and then I proceeded to see her miss the exit for the parking garage. Drove right past it.

She might be too old to drive.
