Larry David

Parking Lot Meltdown

Wasn't My Fault!!!

Larry David
insists ... it wasn't his fault he got his ass trapped in a parking garage last month -- it was the mind-bendingly complex ticket machine at the exit, specifically programmed to make his life hell.

Larry appeared on "Conan" last night, explaining the circumstances behind the video TMZ posted last month (below) -- showing Larry having a hilarious meltdown inside a Santa Monica parking garage.



Larry explains, he tried to pay the ticket machine cash ... but it didn't accept his money -- and when he noticed a massive line of cars piling up behind him, he decided to get out to apologize for the hold up.

When he got out, Larry says a strange woman was kind enough to help him -- by showing him how to swipe his credit card to pay.

Larry adds, "If you had told me years ago that I would be a bad swiper, I wouldn't have believed it."

LOL Larry, I'm sure your not the only one this has happened to:) That's why I don't like those automated check outs in grocery stores. Plus I like to make sure someone is keeping their job by useing them.:)

I hate those damn self-serve gates! I swear, if I ever feel "trapped" by one of those things, I'm just gonna inch my car bumper up to it and then gently press the accelerator until the damn thing breaks!

I'm not sure why what he did is considered a meltdown by TMZ. He didn't know how to work the machine, was apologetic then someone helped him. That's they way the most of the world works.
