As you probably know by now, I really like the Fiat 500. It’s a super awesome car, for so many different and equally awesome reasons. Let’s cruise through a few, shall we?
3. Totally adorable. Gets compliments everywhere we go. So many it’s hard to keep track. Sometimes, gets hit on.
4. It’s made by Italians, and Italians are sexy.
5. Fun gadgets, like super-simple USB iPod hook up (doubles as an iPhone charger, booyah!).
6. Easy-to-read orangey-glow dashboard with everything you need to know (while driving)…
8. Cools down quickly in hot weather.
9. Incredibly fun on road trip (great on gas + super adorable = pleasant road trippin’).
10. Ultimate scorer of killer parking spots. The tinier, the better / more impressive.
Yes, the Fiat 500 has so much about her that is completely lovable. But it’s that last part that leads me to… the loathing of other cars, more specifically… their jerkface drivers.
Dear reader, I’ll said it again – since driving the Fiat 500, I pride myself in scoring sweet parking spots in the parking deck at work. I try to sneak into the tiniest spots possible, while still being safe and responsible, to demonstrate this unbeatable perk of driving such a teeny car!
Which is precisely why I don’t understand… why some cars, namely other teeny cars (*cough* namely the so-and-so who parks in the same deck I do every week day…) insist upon being ULTIMATE JERKS by hogging up TWO parking spots, despite their TEENY CAR.
Recognize the spot(s) this car is in? The slot to the right, which is a 100% legit parking spot, ESPECIALLY when the spot to the left is taken by a small car, and not some massive white truck, is the same spot I proudly squeezed into (with room to spare / open the car doors safely) the day I captured this:
Thanks for making it this far. This morning, I was so infuriated by this car, which parks there (stealing TWO spaces in prime proximity to the exit / entrance of the deck) very often – it was all I could do to not leave a nasty passive-aggressive note on his/her windshield. I decided to passive-aggressively blog about it, instead .
