This just happened:

I was walking to my vehicle to drive home. On the nearly-empty street, there was my car just past the corner; an empty space; another car; and empty space for the rest of the block.

A woman pulled around the corner, came to a stop alongside car #2, and began parallel parking into the space between us.

It was a snug fit, but she wedged her car in after pulling forward again to straighten out. Still walking, I got my keys out and crossed the street.

The car in front of her turned on its lights, cranked its engine, and pulled away.

I got into my car and drove off.

Elapsed time from meticulous parallel parking job to otherwise empty street: 12.6 seconds.

So, if you're having the sort of day where the universe seems to be laughing at you ... just remember, it's not all bad. Because that could have been you.
