Thanks again!
I know that was tongue-in-cheek.

In case it wasn't, two ways to avoid that in the future:
1) Put it in reverse if parked downhill, or first if parked uphill.
2) Turn the wheels toward the curb if parked downhill, away from the curb if parked uphill.

Use both methods all the time. It's a good practice in the event your parking brake should fail.
