"If she parks like that she should not be a member of Congress anymore."
So says a member of the audience gathered to watch 77-year-old Eleanor Holmes Norton, a congresswoman in Washington D.C., try (and fail) to park her car into a normal, wide-open spot.
Now we are first to admit that we are terrible at parking. If we have to parallel park, forget it. We're forking over 12 bucks to the valet so we don't have to worry about that nonsense. But this footage is next-level bananas.
Not only does Eleanor bump and scratch up against the cars next to hers as she tries to slide in, but she gets out and pays no never mind to her completely ridiculous park job. Plus, there are people with her who tried to assist her with the park job and simply just let her leave the car like that as if they looked at it when she was done and was like, "eh, close enough."
