Let’s play a game.
In this photo, Tony ( a new teen driver ) is attempting to pull the car out of a parked parrallel position
while his father (who is not known for his patience and understanding) is motioning and yelling something at him.
Now, take a good look at the photo:
What is good old dad yelling to Tony in this photo?
1) Hey, wait for me! I want to come, too!
2) You have about THIS much space, keep going until I say STOP…..”
3) What the HECK are you doing? You want to HIT the van? STOP! STOP!”
The answer….believe it or not….is #2.
I know, it looks more like it would be the third option. But nope, he was just letting Tony know that he could back up more, that he had plenty of room. See it in the photo above? You can’t see it well, but there’s a smile on his face. He was actually NOT stressing out at his teenage driver. How about that! Very out of character for him. Which is why I took the picture. Gotta document these rare occurances when you can, you know!
