Cut cucumbers into the thinnest possible slices. (you don't have to peel.. Grandma Mae didn't but Grammie does)
Arrange slices in a bowl.
Whisk together the white distilled vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper and parsley.
Pour over the cucumbers.
Place a plate with a weight over the cucumbers to squeeze out the liquid.
Chill for 1 hour. (the longer you chill before serving the stronger the taste)
