So you’re an adult?

There are many key skills that adults should possess in order to make their lives a little easier…

Knowing how to stand up for yourself

How to parallel park

If you can drive, you will have to face your fear of parallel parking at some point. You can’t spend your life looking for spaces big enough for double-decker bus to park in. It’s not as hard as it looks, just practice and you’ll soon be able to wow your friends by parking in normal sized spaces.
