    Backing in just makes sense. Obviously way safer given the mechanics of the steering system and where the driver is situated. Not to mention way more efficient getting into/out of the parking lot.

    I’m going to back in at target today and see how it feels.

    It’s certainly not more efficient getting into the parking spot. Out of? Sure. The pull through is obviously the best.

    Backing out is easier than pulling out in a crowded parking lot. Rear steering is more maneuverable.

    With a minuscule amount of practice, it absolutely is easier to get into a parking space backing in. Hardly ever is a direction change needed to back in (from reverse to forward to reverse) where that happens frequently with pulling in (forward to reverse to forward).

    I’m just debunking the claim about superior entry efficiency. If you want to argue that the gained efficiency on exit negates the cost entailed with backing in, that’s fine. My point is that the pull through cannot beat when it comes to efficiency.

    If you struggle regularly to pull into a parking space, don’t know what to tell you, man. Maybe get a smaller car. I’m going to ask your wife if you struggle with pulling in everywhere.

    That was a sex joke.

    But about the sex part, yeah, you nailed it.

    I mean I pay $3 for expedited shipping through Amazon and they fail to meet that shipment expectation and they refund the $3 automatically without me having to do anything

    Does anything else like that exist in the world? Why shouldn't I just buy everything on Amazon? How can they be beat? My jaw just drops every time there is any issue (kinda rare) and they fix it and I don't even have to call anyone

    I see it’s a subsidiary of Amazon Pharmacy. I used Amazon Pharmacy last month when my insurance was being a dick.

    Insurance said they were going to cover the prescription anymore. Was going to be $23 a month at my local pharmacy. Went on Amazon and without insurance it was only $4.

    Got my doc/practice to take care of business and I can get it in bulk now through CVS CareMark for like $3 a month.

    Just laughed at this random memory from a concert

    We were at a widespread panic show. They played a song called chilly water where the fans sling water everywhere when they sing the chorus.

    Well my brother's buddy just recently had his wisdom teeth removed and brought them with to the show just to throw them in the air when the chorus played

    I wish I could have seen the person's reaction that got hit with flying teeth

    I’m back this week after a week off, going into a 3dw. How do you think I feel?

    If you said idgaf and I’m just screwing around all week and avoiding all the work that I can, you’d be correct.

    Yep

    I've started to take long vacations in the middle of work weeks. Feels like a lot less chasing my tail when I get back since I only miss 2 or 3 days in a week instead of 5

    Also it's pretty sweet to work short weeks

    Why are some of the most thoughtful and insightful people I knew 20 years ago now the dumbest mother fuckers alive as they climb into their 60’s? The brain rot is terrifying. They retain their ability to speak and write coherently, but it’s all a little broken

    I think you have to consciously keep your mind open, be willing to think about things even if you disagree with them. The late boomers/early Gen X are really bad about this.

    I admittedly don't understand Gen Z but I'll listen to what they're saying because whether we like it or not, they're next.
