Not that bad today. Wish it'd stop raining, though.

LOL. That's bad, even by Camry standards.

And I hate that Wegman's lot.

I love the Wegman's lot! If you use the entrance off Snowden it's super fast to get in and out. The entrance off McGaw is poorly designed. We never use it.

I didn't get a picture of this because it was dark and raining, but leaving the gym the other night I saw a Camry driver trying to escape from an end spot (adjacent to a curb). She had parked so close to the curb that she couldn't figure out how to escape. There were several forward-backward-forward attempts to get the car away from the curb but she had no idea which way to turn the wheel to make things happen.

I was about to get out of my car to help her when she just drove up on the curb to escape.

So I saw what I thought was our guy in the blue Camry this morning and was disappointed at the near perfect parking job. Although I though the was redeemed by the Camry next to him.

But a minute or so later I was relieved to realize that that had been a different blue Camry. Our guy was as consistent(ly bad) as ever.
