As a certain Mr. Mittens learned, such solutions only change the location of the offending stains.

Sgygus: As a certain Mr. Mittens learned, such solutions only change the location of the offending stains.


At least Mr. Mittens didn't eat that problem like I hear they they do in Indonesia. As to this story, sounds exactly like how I'd expect an Edina soccer mom to react. Heaven forbid the leather in your glorified Camary get wet. Throw the book at her.

Rufus Lee King: The payments on the Lexus were so bad that she couldn't afford a towel?


Your sarcasm is most likely pretty close to reality. Edina is one of those so close but not quite there suburbs. Everyone portraying themselves as rich but if they really were they'd be living in a different suburb in the surrounding area. It's like a city full of that guy from the commercial, my name is Bob and I'm in debt up to my eyeballs. Big house and Lexus but living check to check. As a side note, the mall there looks like Tijuana meets Mogadishu. Put that in your Minnesota stereotype pipe and smoke it.

The boy's grandma had a somewhat uneasy feeling about him riding in the trunk?

so there were 2 adults and a 14 year old present?

/ that said, when I was a kid, I probably would have been amped to ride in the trunk. seems like fun.... until the whole heat thing kicks in, but cmon, if its 80 outside, how hot can a trunk really be if there is a hole to the air conditioned cabin?
// Kids today are soft. Although, t he article doesent seem to mention any damage to the boy.

While her motivations may have been questionable, haven't we all ridden in a trunk before?

Admit it, you're in a car with friends and there aren't enough seats so one or two of you rides in the back.

It's fun, and there really isn't anything wrong with it.
 
2012-09-19 07:06:29 AM
So have him sit on the floor?
Take the suit off?

Though riding in the trunk of a Lexus is hardly a death sentence.

Ehh, that's by choice though. Forcing a kid to do it for such a silly reason is pretty dickish. Should it be illegal? Meh, probably not. Maybe a fine; it is dangerous if you happen to get in an accident I'm sure.

If I was the kid's parent, I'd be having a serious talk with auntie, that's probably the extent of it, in my opinion.

WTF.... leather doesnt easily stain... thats like, the whole point of it.

shiat like this i how you can tell when someone bought something they really shouldnt have been able to afford. People who actually have money dont give half a shiat about things like this, its just another thing vs being MY BABY OMG

Of course the trunk is dangerous. This is why most people would have made him ride on the roof.

Yet another reason why we have more per capita incarcerations than the rest of the so-called free world.

Lecture her, maybe write her a ticket if the kid was really in any danger, but this is hardly an offense that merits jail time.

"I didn't assess the situation," McCarty said.


No,dingbat....You assessed the situation incorrectly in your inane attempt to protect Corinthian leather.
 
2012-09-19 08:57:22 AM
If convicted, McCarty could face as much as a year in prison and $3,000 in fines.

that seems excessive...

Exactly. A $200-$400 fine ought to reinforce the lesson pretty well.

At least, it did for me when I got pulled over for "rolling stop" while I had three girls in the trunk of my car in high school. Cops actually thought it was kind of funny when they asked if I had anything the trunk and the response was "Yeah, Tiffany, Amy and Kristi."

You can only fit so many people in a '77 Grand Prix without someone making some concessions and they hadn't paid for any of the beer...

That's why I only drive crap vehicles. There's no sense getting a fancy car with leather seats just so one of your kids can leave a sucker stuck to it in 100 degree heat. Well, that, and I'm poor and crap is all I can afford. But mostly it's the kids.
 
2012-09-19 09:36:16 AM
For years Edina was the city that more pretentious stuck up people than any other place I had ever been, including Beverly hills. That really isn't the case anymore but it doesn't surprise me this happened there.

That being said, in today's society, why would you ever think you could get away with putting a kid in a trunk? Hell my friends and I rode around in the backs of pickups when we were teenagers and it wasn't a big deal. You just can't do that kind of thing anymore.

/riding in the back of a pickup was really fun
//riding in the back of a pickup was even more dumb

Car = thing.
Kid = human being (well, maybe not every kid).

/Came looking for the pic of the kid riding terrified on the front of the car, leaving disappointed for now but could someone post it before I come back, please?

just the other day my wife was unloading her lexus after going to the grocery store and one of our cats jumped in the back seat through the sunroof and scratched the shiat out of the leather...good times were had by all

I want to know what the parents' reaction to this was. I know I would have been pretty ticked off.

Kids are soft today.

I remember playing outside and getting a pretty good cut. I came inside to get help from my Mom and the first thing she told me was "stand in the Kitchen, you're getting blood on the carpet."

Of course you don't put him in the trunk. You make him run alongside the car until he dries out.
