Are they going to get off on affluenza?

I was once a 19 year old kid...but I've never been two 19 year old kids.

Why would I be two kids?
 
2014-06-09 10:38:23 AM
Ageism! Who says that the kids can't be Silicon Valley geniuses or bit-coin investors. Next they'll start carding people who are clearly 21 years old.
 
2014-06-09 10:38:36 AM
That sounds awesome, but you have to move along quickly to avoid being caught. Also, bright orange luxury sports cars may not be the way to go.

I couldn't even rent a damn Chevy econobox until I was 25, what idiot approved that rental?
 
2014-06-09 10:42:53 AM
When I was 19, I couldn't rent a Toyota.  Is this normal now, that exotic car rental places are handing over the keys to quarter-million-dollar cars to teenagers?
 
2014-06-09 10:43:09 AM
Interesting that they were caught cause the car was reported stolen. I'm guessing the renter was suspicious and decided to call the cops but that would beg the question 'why rent to them in the first place?'

It must be nice to have the kind of card and transaction history that your issuer doesn't flag your account when a $27,000 charge pops up.
 
2014-06-09 10:45:28 AM
So I guess when you are splashing big money around they waive the minimum age requirement of 25?

LlamaGirl: Are they going to get off on affluenza?


Nah, they're guilty of attempted affluenza. That's a much more serious crime. It's ok to misbehave if you're rich, but pretending to be rich in order to misbehave is a felony.

/because ultimately, the real crime is being poor
 
2014-06-09 10:47:07 AM
Sh*t. I haven't been 19 in, like, 15 f*cking years.

Damn, I'm f*cking old.

*sigh*

The sound of one hand clapping: Interesting that they were caught cause the car was reported stolen. I'm guessing the renter was suspicious and decided to call the cops but that would beg the question 'why rent to them in the first place?'


Probably called after they ran into a problem with the credit card although that begs the question why didn't they verify it in the before they gave them the keys.

For a moment I was trying to figure out how in the hell did you put $12 mil on a credit card. I'd think you'd get the side eye even if you used a Centurian.
 
2014-06-09 10:54:29 AM
I bet they were heading to the site of the 1982 World's Fair in Knoxville, TN.

If they had a stolen credit card they probably had a fake drivers liscence that said they were 28 or so.

19 years old, bet they are going to wish they pulled this about 2 years ago. Don't pull this when you are considered an adult in the eyes of the law.
 
2014-06-09 11:07:01 AM
That car was too small to hold their gigantic balls. And way to daw attention to yourselves you master criminals. Makes me wonder what their plan was, just having some fun or take the car and sell it and trash the house with a monster party.
 
2014-06-09 11:12:42 AM
I wonder what their two 19 year olds will do in about 20 years?  Or will it be 4 19 years olds?
 
2014-06-09 11:12:55 AM
Hmm, teenagers and an AMEX no limit credit card.
If kids got ahold of MY credit card they might have been able to rent a YUGO, and stay at a Motel 6.


sigh.

Nice. Go big or go... oh looks like jail either way. If they wanted to do it right, Throw a GPS/cell jammer in that bad boy and and load it into a shipping container, then sell it overseas.

Not only that, I think most sellers would be reluctant to take a credit card for anything that expensive simply because they would be on the hook for a merchant fee of somewhere between $240,000 and $360,000.

Yugos are collector's items now... hipsters are probably bidding them up for "irony" or whatever, if you could find one.

I just rented a Chevy Spark for $14 a day. Is that the rock-bottom of car rental rates now?  (It was an OK car, definitely aimed at "value" customers ... but the interior was designed by committee... too many mismatched colors and elements)

Susinct. Concise. To the point. +1.

I can't understand the house rental. Shirley they thought this through and realized that someone would figure out in a day that the credit card was stolen, and then could easily track the thieves down to where they are living.
Plus who rents out a home on credit card?

I'm going to take a stab at your question.

I recently happened across a Mother's Day episode where Moe says he moved to Springfield because  the zip code spelled "booze"on a calculator.   That makes the city of Springfield in 32008 - Branford, FL.or (less accurately) 80023 Broomfield, CO

It's Chevrolet's answer to the Nissan Leaf.  It's all-electric, cheaper than the Leaf, and has even less range (I think 70-80 miles per charge?).

What kind of moran would rent out a $240,000 sports car to a 19yr old? Even if they rented it online or over the phone, they had to pick it up.
