I drove a mini-van for over a dozen years. I loved my van. It looked like new when I traded it in at 13 years and 186k miles. Which should surprise no one.
I loved the way it drove, I loved the way it handled.
I could drive that van just as well backwards as forward. I could park it anywhere.
Now I drive a VW Cabrio. There aren't many cars smaller than that.
So why is it I can't back the thing up?
I mean I can't even back it into a parking space.
I park in the same space here at work everyday. When I arrive there are no other cars near my space, and I like to back in.
I do this everyday.
Yet everyday it takes me two tries.
There I am ... all alone... on the roof of the parking garage (in full view of the entire building) attempting over and over again to park my teeny tiny little car into this cavernous space.
