Growing up in Boston, I prided myself on being able to park any vehicle into the tightest spots. And I could do so quickly and cleanly. Need to parallel park a box truck on a busy street? I was your guy. Lately, however, I feel like I can barely stay between the lines of a strip mall parking lot. Sure, the 2019 GMC Sierra I’m driving this week is large and I can barely locate the wheel position because of the massive fenders and hood, but I used to be better than this. I’m straddling lines, angled in the spot, and it keeps on happening.
I don’t blame the truck… I blame myself.
