Look, we've all done some pretty questionable parking jobs over the years.
You might've gone way over the lines, or parked where you probably shouldn't have because you will literally be two minutes in the shop.
One poor tourist took a trip down to North Wales on Saturday (21 May), and, struggling to find a parking spot, chose to drive down to the harbour in Borth y Gest, just before high tide.
For anyone not familiar, Borth y Gest is a tranquil town with beaches and all the trappings of a typically Welsh village, which now includes a flooded car.
People from around the area did try to warn him but to no avail, with the tourist driving down the slip road into the harbour, which would soon be filled with water – as would the car.
As if that wasn't the worst start to a Saturday you've ever heard, a crowd started to form to watch the car become a submarine.
It took around 15 minutes in total for the car to sink, so, you know, enough time to grab some popcorn and tell your neighbours to come to see for themselves.
And a lot of locals did just that, the Wales Daily Post reported, with one onlooker saying: "Sadly he'd not heard that both time and tide wait for no man."
Sarcastic comments aside, one local managed to save the day, rescuing the vehicle with a tractor.
No one was hurt, except the driver's pride, which we imagine took a pretty big hit.
As you can imagine, people were quick to weigh in on Twitter, with one user saying: "This is genuinely funny."
Another wrote: "This is what will happen if you don't pay your tourist tax."

A third hilariously wrote: "Insurance company: "Is it covered" ? Only by water."
Another chimed in: "Courtesy of the late great Welsh and Caerphilly legend, Tommy Cooper RIP: A woman phoned her husband and said, 'The carburettor is full of water.' 'Where's the car?' the man said. 'In the river,' she replied."
All jokes aside, don't park in Borth y Gest harbour. You have been warned.
