Wow, everything in that picture (and the others from TFA) just screams 'douchebag'.

What I want to know is why Reggie Wayne was staying at an Indianapolis hotel in the first place.

This guy's father failed him badly.

A lot of teams require their players to stay at a local hotel the night before a home game to promote team unity and to enforce a curfew.

"Belcher's joyride lasted several hours 2 a.m. on Sunday when police pulled him over on suspicions that he was driving drunk. "

Something about modern journalism/proofreading.

I'd post the "getting a kick" block, but then nobody would believe me.

I worked as a valet in college- since I'm white and clean cut, I got most of the higher-end jobs at country clubs, swanky hotels/restaurants, etc. (Once parked Joe Buck's promo BMW that he did for doing ads around here! Should have pissed in the footwell.) Some advice:

1. Don't trust valets, ever. Zero out the trip counter, make a note of the gas tank, and leave nothing inside the car you wouldn't want shoved up someone's ass.
2. Good valets will understand that you never need to steal cars- if you build up a regular clientele, they'll often let you "enjoy" the car a bit- a regular who insisted I always park his ride let me take his Maserati out on the highway for a "test drive to see if I thought there was anything wrong with it" (wink)
3. If you leave a tip in an envelope in the car (and mention it to your parker) it's highly likely that they won't fark with your ride.
4. If you think your car smells like weed/booze/crack/coke/sex, that's what happened.
5. The majority of valets can't drive stick; be aware of this when having them park anything with an MT. Chances are, it'll come back reeking of clutch.
6. Whatever you do, DO NOT attempt to "remind" them not to fark with your car. Much like "please don't spit in my food", it virtually guarantees something will happen to it. (Only time I ever did something on purpose was when a dude in a late 80s Chevy Caprice told me "there better not be a scratch" (lolwut). Got in, was immediately overwhelmed by the smell of rank BO and rotting food- and realized I'd just sat in something wet and squishy. Somehow, the coffee? Melted milkshake? Chunky brownish liquid that HAD to have dairy in it somehow got spilled out of his cupholder.)
7. While we aren't working for tips alone, they're the vast majority of our income. Also, FREE VALET!= should not/does not have to tip. Conversely, it means you should probably tip better.
8. It didn't happen to me, but the "lonely housewife who's kinda drunk after a party she hired us to park for" Penthouse Forum stories DO happen. I had a g/f at the time and she was 50+, but 3 of the other guys there weren't as discriminating. Yes, I saw the pix. No, I don't have them.
9. Please don't fart in your car right before turning it over to us. We know. It's a dick move, and you'd be amazed at the number of people who find this hilarious, and go out of their way to mention they "left us something in the car."
10. Don't ask a valet to park a car you don't know how to drive, or forget the keyless start FOB in your pocket as you walk inside.

All these things are some of the reasons that I don't valet park my car. That and Atlanta is moronic about valets. This isn't New York or Chicago where valets take your car to some other lot that might be far away. Here in Atlanta, valets will often drive no more than 50 feet from the dropoff to park the car. No thank you.

This was one of the references I was looking for...the other was the beginning of XXX where Vin Diesel steals the car and drives it off the bridge.

Reggie has been doing a live radio show for the past couple months in Carmel. Yesterday they gave him all kinds of crap about his car. The guy told the cops he was Reggie's cousin once they told him it was Reggie's car. His long lost white cousin by marriage.

And yes, the Colts do require players to stay in the "team hotel" Saturdays before home games.

For sure- can't believe I forgot to add "Ask where they're parking your car" to the list of valet commandments. If it's "right over there" or they won't tell you, I'd suggest not parking there.

Headline: Hotel valet arrested after he 'swipes NFL player's Bentley and takes it for a drunken joyride lasting 5 HOURS'

Article: In an incident reminiscent of the movie 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off,' 21-year-old Gunner Belcher, an employee at The Westin Hotel in downtown Indianapolis, left work around 9 p.m. Saturday driving the 34-year-old Colts receiver's luxury 2007 Bentley.

Belcher's joyride lasted several hours 2 a.m. on Sunday when police pulled him over on suspicions that he was driving drunk.


Fact: 9pm-2am is 5 hours.

grinding_journalist: Zero out the trip counter


Just note the total, zeroing it out is easier for them to fix after their joyride.

It just seems ridiculous to me. Essentially, many restaurants converted from self-parking in the regular lots behind the restaurant to "valet parking only". They didn't change anything, it's just that now there are valets there picking up the cars and moving them 50 feet rather than people parking themselves. The owners of the restaurant may be trying to seem high-class or something, but it just makes no logical sense in my book. I don't patronize any establishment that forces me to hand my keys to someone else.

I'm too poor to have any cool valet stories.

I'll move on......wait....

Wasn't there a Viking or Norseman comic...valet something??

Living in Vegas and visiting casinos a lot I valet a ton and have never had a problem that I know of. I had a 2005 Mercedes SLK 350 that was a stick shift and then a 2008 BMW 650i auto. My current car is a Sonata hybrid.

The Mercedes did develop a problem with the parking brake lever and I do wonder sometimes if it had to do with valets yanking on it too hard and too far. That was my only suspected valet problem.
