Ummm its impossible that OP's car moved it self while in reverse gear... Coz as long as OP releases clutch and no race. Car comes to a dead end lol.... Even if its automatic, still he cannot get out of car without key, if car aint in parking mode, u cannot get the keys out OP.... So think again lol
I'm surprised OP isn't a women. Normally it's the ladies that fail at driving. OP you have disgraced men everywhere.
1. 'Women are bad drivers' is a negative stereotype. It's saying that women are not safe to be on the road, and that women should not be driving. Driving is one of the main forms of transport in the modern world. It effectively says that "women cannot be trusted with freedom of movement". 2. All stereotypes, positive or negative, are harmful. "Black people are athletic" is a positive stereotype - in that it features a trait that has societal approval - but it ignores that black people are individuals with varying level of athletic ability. "Women are caring and nurturing" is a positive stereotype, but it ignores that women are individuals who may or may not be caring and nurturing. Stereotypes ignore the person in favour of a collection of traits which have very little to do with that person as an individual. 3. Because of the above, yes, you *are* a tosser. Thank you.
Alright. Look at my comments, I did not say "woman are bad drivers". I said they "normally fail". So I am implying that they do and don't fail all the time. Yes it is slightly mean, but that's the point of a stereotype. You have to understand its a joke and that you are raging for no reason. You have even resorted to calling me a name, which of course is just stupid.
"Normally" generally means "happens most of the time, with rare exceptions". For example: "The sun normally rises in the morning." "In the UK, people normally take their GCSEs in year 11." "Normally, bookstores put Lord of the Rings in the Fantasy section." I may not have directly quoted you, but "normally, women fail at driving" and "women are bad drivers" are saying essentially the same thing. And yes, calling you and other people who espouse stereotypes 'tossers' was childish. On the other hand, you are a person who sees nothing wrong with being 'slightly mean'... (Also: here's a hint - jokes are funny.)
Rattus, think you need to chill out a touch. Skoomaki's comment was sarcasm. I laughed at it, because obviously no harm was meant. But to call them a tosser is over the top. But I'm wasting time here, because you won't listen. You'll start another long winded comment I couldn't be assed reading. So feel free to call me names too if you need champ, I'll be busy not caring!
I'm wondering how this would happen. Did OP park in a close spot or did people block him in? I cant decide if its ydi or fyl. So confused
