Glad to see someone else admit to doing this.

I almost never misjudge the coast to parking spot these days, but when I first started doing this it was not uncommon. Sometimes I'd just push the car the extra couple feet just to avoid starting the car again.

I know these things don't add up to anything significant, but now that it's a habit of mine, no extra thought is given to these little tricks. Coasting into a parking spot or grabbing my sunglasses first is just as natural to me as putting on the seat-belt or remembering to grab my keys before locking.
