I am humbled by this guy's parking skills.

I don't mean to brag, but I consider myself an above-average parker. In the old days, I could parallel park without a care. Part of me feels insulted about the backup cameras that come with new cars now. It makes parking more like a video game than a skill. I've adapted, however, and I'd put my parking skills up against almost anyone—until today.

Today, I realized that I am just a Padawan, and this guy is a Jedi Knight.


Look at this parking job. It's beyond a parking job, it's nothing short of a work of art.

My first thought was, "Wow, think of all of the care, effort, and time it took this guy to back so tightly into this space." Then, on second thought I realized that this guy probably parks there and backs it in without a care in the world. He's not sweating trying to get that close. He's doing it on natural ability. And he's CERTAINLY not using a rearview camera on that Jeep Cherokee.

This is a God-given talent. By the way, no part of the Jeep hit any part of the yellow barrier.  So good!

So, here's a tip of my cap to you, sir. I'm not sure how you do it. I'm not sure I want to know. Sometimes it's best to let the magic live in the mystery. But, I do want you to know that I greatly admire your work.
