I failed the driving exam because I couldn’t Parallel park. I had to drive extra time with my parents and I still couldn’t do it when it came time to get my permit. The instructor took pity on me and gave me my permit anyway saying, “don’t go anywhere you have to parallel park!”
To this day, 22 years later, I have not mastered this skill. It’s my little driving shame. I’m a pretty good driver except for this one fault. I understand the theory behind it, but I think my anxiety issues get in the way more than anything at this point.
It’s a pretty silly secret, but one I don’t share with everyone, (until now). 😜
