This might be the best response to a badly parked car anyone’s ever seen
‘This is what I get for parking like an asshole… I deserved it,’ wrote the driver.
Most drivers wouldn’t take kindly to being told their parking was sub-standard, but one woman in the US reacted rather differently after a hilarious note was left on her windscreen.
Shelby, 27, from California, was attending the gym and parked her car in the “pretty much empty” car park before heading inside.
However, on her way back to the vehicle someone appeared to have taken against her parking efforts, and left this rather genius note in response.
“Color me!” the drawing of an elephant read. “Maybe you could practise staying in the lines.”
“The note was left on my car while I was at the gym and I came back to find it on my windshield,” Shelby told the Press Association. “I thought it was actually nice that it wasn’t a note that was cussing me out.”
Not only did Shelby enjoy the note, she also recognised that her parking on that particular day could have been better.
“It was really dark out and my eyesight is already bad enough,” she said. “But when I checked how badly I parked, I wasn’t only crooked but parked right over the line between the spots.”
The post has received thousands of upvotes on Reddit as well as plenty of comments, with this being Shelby’s “favourite response”.
“I didn’t think it was a huge deal because the lot was pretty much empty but I’m guessing the person wanted to warn me for future reference, which is nice,” Shelby added.
