A middle-aged man has finally admitted that any good attempts that he’s ever made at reversing into a parking space have been down to good fortune.
Peter Thape (48), who is Chairman of the National Excellent Parking Society, shocked a large crowd at the national conference by admitting that he had no real technique for reversing into a space, and had always been ‘winging it.’
Thape was booed off the stage, but welcomed into the arms of his supportive children, who had all witnessed some odd kerb-toppling manoeuvres over the years.
‘I used to drive past spaces that were three car lengths long, just to avoid the embarrassment,’ admitted Thape.
‘I use car parks now. I’m even crap at them,’ he added.
