I guess.


Certainly, somebody has gone down a one way street the wrong way or forgot to latch the tongue hitch to the ball, etc.


Help me out somebody, ya'll don't leave me hanging!

Ok.... I will help you out..... "Dude... your going down a one way street the wrong way, so turn around.... and I will spot you".


As for not latching the tongue hitch that would be in the thread, "Things I forgot when going Camping"......

Oh no...not the only one! During a recent trip to Myrtle Beach I pulled into a station to get fuel that had a way out around the back of the store...or so I thought. Got behind the store to find it blocked by a storage shed.
SO.... sheepishly with the assistance of my outstanding DW clearing cars out of my way I had to back out around the store pass the pumps and along the front of the store until I could drive out to the street. The wife and store manager were impressed with the "mad backing skills"....but I was hiding my face cos I got in that situation in the first place!

Admittedly, I am one of the worst backer-uppers in the world, but good Lord, turn the wheel, turn the wheel! Even I can do that!

I also have 2 major errors in judgement. The first time was a Del Taco just minutes after taking delivery. An experienced driver towing would had gotten out of the situation sooner. This was my first time towing and I was alone. I regretted trying to stop for a soda.

The second time I was in a busy area and thought I would go through a parking lot that circles around so that I could head in the other direction. I realized too late that the fast food place had changed the layout of the parking area since the last time I was there. I was smart enough to back out but I got a workout using the GOAL method. I would had thought that someone would had been kind enough to help but they all just stood & watched. There were parked cars on both sides and also behind me.

In both cases it was what I couldn't see that made the situation harder to deal with.

Same here. I can barely back my car out of a parking spot. My brain just doesn't do backwards!

That video with the car happened just down the road from me. They never did identify the driver or any repercussions....
