This video was uploaded last Thursday and already has over 778,000 views and more than 5000 likes on YouTube. The video is –of course- about a woman trying to parallel park her car near the curb side and fails horribly. I shouldn’t even be posting this, being a woman myself. This is the ultimate example of the stereotype. But, believe me, you have to see this.
The video is shot by a few men who are looking down from a window at the unskilled woman. They say they started videotaping the event half-way through. Since the video lasts about 15 minutes, they claim she has been trying to parallel park her car for half an hour straight. I would’ve definitely given up by then, especially with those guys screaming from the window…
The men who videotaped this parking attempt write in the description that before starting the film, one of them had already ran down to offer the woman some help – She said no. But as we can see at the end of the painful 15 minute video, she finally accepts the help of a man and succeeds.
I must say: I’ll give her an A+ for perseverance. I didn’t believe she would ever succeed, but as Benjamin Franklin once said: “Energy and persistence conquer all things.”
