You know those people who are eagerly ready to help others park in a tight spot. They stand on the side and signal with a rolling hand that the driver should continue to reverse. And the driver does. That’s a large amount to trust to put in a stranger. You’re letting a stranger be your eyes. You offload a certain amount of decision-making that you’d otherwise have to go through.

I want to be that person. The person who steps in when a driver is in distress, trying to get through a tough spot. Except that I would never stop signalling. And I would promptly run after the thud.

Remember, it’s the thought that counts.
