I drove beater cars for several years in my poorer days. That's exactly why I back in, too. Also, it's safer to back in than it is to back out, as Sniper mentioned.

And yes, I'm full of all kinds of quirks. Too numerous to list. And it gets worse as I live alone.

Our company policy, and that of several major corporations we do business with- combat park unless you need access to the bed of a pickup (some of our trucks carry a nuclear density gauge chained in the bed)

Much safer.




A quirk is trying to sort your M&Ms alphabetically.......

I've found it just easier to back in when I'm driving my extended cab long bed.
It get's to be a habit, because I love to back-up. Perhaps that's my quirk!

This thread reminds me of the ambush scene in Generation Kill.

Is it at all possible for any of you to back the eff up?!

I like to see what i'm pulling out into, just in case I can clip a bear on my way out.

I also backed the family van ONTO my sister's sentra many years ago and was not pleased with the results.

I'm not sure THAT has really been established, but your parking habits don't seem abnormal.

I swear I am not judging you but freezing pop corn should be a sin. When I eat take out chinese i let it get cold first. I also let grits get cold before I eat them if I have the time.

I have found it easier to back my pickup into a parking place. Aim the a$$ and go!

What gets me is those who are slow to make a corner, or slow to start from a light, but are the first to pass you once you are at legal speed on the open road.
If they have to be so careful with making a corner, why aren't the just as careful about the speed limit?
