Look, I don’t know much about cars. But it’s refreshing to find out about people who know even less than me.

Reddit user SmallBirdFeedMeFries shared their tale of vehicular incompetence on the r/TIFU (“today I f***ed up”) subreddit much to the glee of the commenters.

This story reminds me of the classic Mitch Hedberg joke:

That doesn’t say a lot for me, but it doesn’t say a lot for the emergency brake.

It’s not really an emergency brake, it’s an emergency make-the-car-smell-funny lever.”

*sigh* I miss Mitch.

Okay, on to the hilarious reddit post!

Yeah, whoever designed this should be fired. That is HORRIBLE.

But hey, what’s the biggest mistake you’ve ever made with a car? That you’re willing to admit…
