Larry David's Parking Garage Episode: 'Curb' Star Defeated By Santa Monica Parking Garage

Now we know for sure that Larry David isn't faking it for "Curb Your Enthusiasm."

The actor was caught ranting and raving Sunday in a Santa Monica parking garage because he couldn't figure out how to raise the gate. "I can't do this," he shouted. "Do you know how to do this? I can't do this. I put it in... it says $5!"

Luckily for him, another driver popped out of her car to show him how to insert his parking ticket, which lifted the gate and allowed everyone to be on their way.

Luckily for us, this whole exchange was caught on video, and TMZ has the footage to prove it.

Will the parking garage incident make it into a future episode of "Curb Your Enthusiasm?" We think it just might, especially considering David's penchant for writing real-life problems into his hit series. When he got divorced from Laurie David in 2007, David wrote a divorce storyline for his fictional character on the show that very season.
