I thought the carwash guy left her a Snickers, like one of those classy mints on your pillow that you hear about in stand up acts from the 80s.  It's never the feel-good story I expect going in.

When I was in school, I worked as a valet parker for 4 years.


As a good rule of thumb tip ON THE WAY IN and request the car be parked within sight of the front door.

Don't pull the dick move and say "I'll park it myself" unless your car is upwards of 1 million.

If you have 100K invested in an automobile, spend the 20 bucks to have it parked right.


CSB:

I crashed an $80K porsche 911 that had less than 400 miles on it, and did about 6K woth of damge to it.


Long story, but, rainy night, customer left without setting parking brake, left it in 1st.  I get in the car, start it (which involves engaging the clutch, for you people who can't drive stick)  So, it started rolling, and it was so smooth I didn't feel it.  the windws were fogged, as it was a rainy night, so I couldn't see.  As I am looking at the dash to turn on the defog, I felt a sickening crunch.  It was the car getting wedged between a ford explorer and a stone wall.

oops.

Well, let's see.

Car wash says he wasn't their employee.  Wouldn't that mean the car was stolen by the guy accepting the keys, and taking it for a joy ride?

How is that in any way a "civil" matter?  Police don't consider auto theft a crime anymore?

If he never claimed to work there, and she handed over the keys willingly without inquiring, how is he at fault?

Imagine it took place at some other random location without a car wash, or whatever. Would it be criminal then?

Is it theft if you willingly hand the keys over ?

I was waiting to get my car from the valet and a guy walks up and hands them his slip. The guy says hold on one second, the manager needs to talk to you. Turns out the valet scraped the hell out of the side of his MB AMG SL6.5.  Guy says, okay, I'll have my insurance guy call you. Calm as can be. The manager was very relieved.

lol... i can only imagine how this scenario played out. *guy is waiting out side this car wash for his friend to pick him up. all the sudden, a woman in a bentley pulls up and sees the 'valet' smiling and happy, they greet each other, but she just hands him the keys and walks away* - probably wouldve done the same thing.

Maybe daddy bought her a telecom company for her 29th.

Sounds like a rich vapid twunt who will soon divest herself of her share of mum & dad's wealth through naïveté and poor judgment. Is she hot? I could use a sugar-mama with an English accent.

No, actually.  You'd only get pissed if you couldn't afford the car.
He called the owner of the compnay the next day and was basically like "Just put it through your insurance".  Didn't yell or anything.  Long story, but I never saw the guy, he took his keys off the board and left. (we were seriously short staffed that night)

No, I actually learned on a manual (motorcycle actually).  There's a good reason why the valet parking signs state "Customer must set parking brake"

She said yesterday: "I just freaked out. I was so upset because it was my 30th birthday present from my mum and I only got it in December."

Telecom worker Jessica, from Bramhall, Cheshire, says the car wash denied responsibility, claiming the man she gave the keys to didn't work there - he was a would-be thief.


Can someone from across the pond please translate "telecom worker" for me?  I'm imagining one of those jackasses who calls you while you're eating dinner to try to sell you an extended warranty for your car.

I'm trying to figure out how to feel.  If she's worked her way up to VeeP of a communications company by the age of 30 and she reads books to kids with cancer on weekends, I'll feel bad.  If she's a scum-of-the-earth telemarketer, I'll be glad.

The Continental GTs, yes, they ride on VW platforms with variations of VW engines.  The Bentley Mulsanne on the other hand, that's one of the finest cars money can buy and is truly a bespoke product.  Of course, it costs about 2x-3x as much as the Continental GT.

I call BS on this statement.  My dad had an sl550 that someone backed into while it was parked about 2 months after he got it. It didn't matter one bit that he didn't have a problem buying the car - it was still a prized possession and he was super sad that it was damaged. Honestly, I got upset when someone scratched my accord. It's still my car.

Yeah. The day after I got my car, my mom hit it backing out of the driveway. Damage was superficial and insurance got it fixed, but man, I was heartbroken.

/still have trouble feeling sorry for someone who got a car for her birthday that's worth more than most people who work for a living will make in a year
