Before you all have heart attacks, Seth is a significantly better driver than his brother. He’s got this.

I think this is the first time “Maz” has come up? Maybe? Stay tuned?

Jon, did you ever consider that Seth may be a masochist at heart? Maybe, that would explain why he still wants to see Gemma?

I am reminded of this strip:
www.questionablecontent.net/view.php?comic=438

Makes more sense if you’re a Questionable Content fan.

That would explain a lot actually! And haha wow, I remember that page, it does seem applicable!

Passing the test on the first try only means Seth was a sufficient combination of lucky and good at doing one driving test though, and not necessarily good at driving in total. As someone who has taken an IQ test and criticized the biases and limitations of all the questions, at length, in essay form with footnotes, bibliography and attached appendices....

Also, if he starts using that car to drive the drive-through for a fast food place regularly he is not going to stay so thin very long. I, for one, welcome our rounder Seth to come. :)

Oh yeah, tests are always a bit flawed, but even considering that, Seth is just a better driver than his brother. Though admittedly you only have this page and my word to go on so far, so your skepticism is warranted!

And considering walking to and from bus stops was one of his only forms of exercise... you may not be off the mark there

I'd really, really hope he's a better driver than his brother who failed six driving tests and maybe still is cause for nightmares to his instructor. It would be utter bollocks if Seth weren't.

Mayb the answer is for Seth to instead visit Gemma to bring her lunch, if he doesn't want to lard up. Going to a restaurant to give food to one of the workers there is probably something amuses my sense of the perverse more than a good way for him to pursue his, er, relationship though.

Aw, that's actually a really sweet idea! And kinda funny, like he goes into a burger joint all "Hey I brought you a salad!"

Somehow I picture the response going something like the following:

Action: Gemma and an unnamed coworker, age and gender unspecified, argue as Seth cringes in greater awkwardness and embarrassment in each panel. In the last panel he may have fled while the argument continues in his absence.

"That's, uhm, almost thoughtful, but I already have lunch."
"If she doesn't take it I would give you a suck in the back storage closet for that salad."
"Not in the storage closet you chav slutmonster! I have to clean and inventory that at the end of my shift."

.... Continue argument as appropriate for the characters and the content rating of the comic.

I agree luck plays a pretty big part in the tests. Once I passed I was like 'I'm glad they didn't ask me to do a parallel park, now I can spend the rest of my life avoiding them!'

Maybe it's different in the UK, but at least where I live in the US more or less you can pass the driving test without doing the parallel parking part. I mean, it's probably one in a thousand that you'll actually parallel park anymore.

I suspect that a lot of the difference between people who are 'good' at parking and people who aren't depends on how well they can see, or guess, where the edges of their vehicle are. If you have trouble with this it may help if you add visual aids to show you where the corners are. I've seen people use ugly little plastic flags for it, but I recommend small black, or off-white, pieces of wire instead because they're easy to replace, and easy to ignore when you aren't looking for them.

This advice may already be obsolete for people posh enough they buy self-parking cars.
