To think Radio 2 should know better

Than to continually have plugged this link here youtube video on air today? So what if someone took half an hour to park? It would have not have helped her that there were a bunch of students baying and jeering. It is quite obvious that they can be heard from the street. Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I don't find intimidating behaviour and taking the piss out of others very entertaining. Students will be students, but I think a National Radio station should know better...

Did they ask her permission before filming her and putting it on the internet? I know you don't have to legally, but its rather sad that this woman is facing millions of people watching her and laughing. People who she has to deal with everyday will have seen this video.

poor woman. I can't parallel park to save my life and avoid it at all costs. My mate once parked my car for me blush

The students were in the house across the street, I doubt the driver could hear them or I think they have been in one of the University Buildings around there. The video has been floating about for about a week. Car owner is lucky she got a space there at all, they're like hens teeth smile

It wasn't set up at all oh no

Doubt she realised that they were filming or discussing her during her attempt to park, tbh.

And fgs, if she is that bad at driving then she should go and take more lessons. She has utterly no idea where her car ends, and how to turn the wheel to make it move in the direction she wants to go.

Nothing like parking in the Holy Lands, eh wiggles?

grin

I still maintain she was a lucky cat to get the space in the first place wink I've been unable to get q space there at 11 o'clock on a Wednesday night smile

It was funny at the end when a HUge fuck off space appeared

I linked to this on a thread last night DS1 sent it to me because I am so crap at parallel parking

I think it's hilarious and to be fair they had been watching her for 15 mins before they started to film her AND one of them went down and offered to park the car and she refused.

Plus "get in ye girl ye" is just beyond funny.

Well, that person is clearly totally shit at parking, which isn't good.

But I admire her sticking power! grin half a bloody hour?

Sorry but I did laugh. blush

But absolutely, top marks for commitment! And if those spaces are that difficult to get, then there was no way she was going to give it up! Good girl! smile

Chris Evans mentioned it yesterday.

I haven't seen the clip but good for her if she didn't knock another car or hold traffic up while she was doing it.

Don't get offended on her behalf OP!

grin

YABU... it was very funny, the 'commentary' made it even funnier, and the person who was trying to park the blessed thing really ought to go out and get a few lessons.
