model 3 in front of me, front wheels start twitching side-to-side. wtf?!

Didn’t stay long. They looked quite confident it was going to work, drove straight into a bay, pulled the bottom cable out, no hesitation.

I thought they were going when the cable didn’t reach. But no. driver got back in and rolled it forward closer to the stall.

It's not a rem sleeping Tesla but it is someone trying to "fill up" their Tesla...always worth a giggle this one

In humans/mammals, it's where you're asleep but your eyes move while you're dreaming - Rapid eye movement sleep - Wikipedia

with the cars all dark inside and out, that's what it reminded me of when they started playing beach buggy racing and the front wheels were moving side-to-side

Ah right I thought it was some code word for when a Zoe tries to supercharge, seems like they were asleep!
