Think this car owner feels entitled? “I could buy your whole family!”
h/t to Zach, who showed this to me.

Looks like a good way to get your butt kicked to me.
Was that guy’s name suzie?
Sometimes it’s just nice to see someone who has that smug, entitled attitude get called on it. And BTW, that roly poly fancy car owner would have been the butt kickee in that scenario if it ever came to it…
Rob, I think the guy with the water would have crushed the entitled dude. Hell, the other guy’s lucky the guy with the water held his temper.
This brings back unpleasant memories.
The general manager of the business drove a Ferrari. He parked it every day in a no parking zone. OK, he was the boss. I guess he played by different rules.
Then he showed up in a new Ferrari the very day he was laying off over 100 engineers. Nice. Lots of the most capable folks left shortly after that. Who could blame them.
Saw a nice Ferrari down on Grandin Road recently. Guy was going to the Co-op. And he didn’t park in in a handicapped spot.
It may have been a better game plan to have used the cell phone
camera to first make an image of the car in the handicap space.
The next image could have focused on the license plate.
This info could have been given to the local police.
Confrontation is dangerous in today’s world, better to leave incidents
like this in the hands of professionals.
Oh, got me a new spell checker via Google toolbar, works great.
Was using something called ispell, this is much better.
The Ferrari driver probably parks his yacht beside John Kerry’s in Rhode Island (taxes, don’t you know). Suspect he votes the same way too.
“The Ferrari driver probably parks his yacht beside John Kerry’s in Rhode Island (taxes, don’t you know). Suspect he votes the same way too.”
Bet that guy also fumes about bicyclists riding on “his” road and interfering with his walks on a greenway.
#8 Bob h I doubt the voting thing very much. Very surprised that you of all people would bring politics into it. Entitlement as in a case like this knows no political bounds IMHO and it turns my stomach no matter the source…
If anybody here saw an OWS dirtbag urinating on your car, would you not have a similar reaction?
This video in actuality shows the absurdity of the predatory handicapped parking law.
Well yes Bob H, we know from Suzie that right wingers never brag or act vain about possessions. When the whole world is a tit, you are a tat.
He probably owns his own bike free greenway Dan.
Have you seen a shrink about your obsession on bikes?
The majority of the top 10 wealthiest members of congress are democrats.
Do the math.
The “Ferrari dude” is guilty of assault AND indecency.
You off work today, Sandi? How about yesterday?
Sandi commenting on the 1%ers while she pecks away on her 1%er boss’ dime. How many breaks do you get each workday, hon?
#7 I agree with you here, Rob. Too many people carrying guns these days. Probably a bad idea to pull the stunt AND a bad idea to attack the guy pulling the stunt. Your plan makes much more sense.
The Ferrari aspect of this is irrelevant. If I caught someone pissing on my car I would kick his ass.
A better prank would have been to have the Ferrari towed.
I would have just reported it and hoped the guy got a parking ticket. I’ve done it before, because with a family member who is truly disabled who uses a wheelchair and a ramp van to get around, we’ve seen a lot of illegally parked cars in handicap zones. The worst happens when we park in a van space, and someone wdges into the area designated for the ramps to come out for wheelchair access. The only way around that is to block the aisle for 2-3 minutes while loading and securing her wheelchair, which utterly pisses off people.
I’m honestly not sure the whole video wasn’t staged though.
Suzie, your concern for my leisure and work time is touched. My boss pays me to do a job, I am not a slave to his “dime”. It is your everlasting sorrow I work in front of a computer.
using company computers for playing on the rt..real ethical sandi.
Did you genius sleuths miss the part about their being a bottle of water? No one was “pissing on” any car.
Suzie, tell awood who it is on this blog that threatens, tries to intimidate, and uses personal information shared against other bloggers. Those who hide in the safety of anonymity like you. Coward.

And you would go to jail for assault. And when the judge heard the evidence that he was not, in fact, pissing on your car, and you overreacted to a harmless prank, you would likely be punished to the maximum of the law. Additionally, you would spend the next two years or more in litigation as he sued you through every possible civil avenue. Eventually, your lawyers will own more of your stuff than you do.
That is, of course, if you didn’t completely cave in and settle all civil matters out-of-court at a hefty out-of-pocket sum to yourself. Of course, the kid would probably also demand you apologize publicly, thereby making all of your internet machismo here look vacuous and foolish.
Last, but not least, are you sure your manliness could take the very real possibility that the guy pissing on your sled will kick your teeth out if you attempt to accost him?
All of that seems like an awfully expensive lesson to teach yourself… Perhaps merely not parking (and acting) like a d-bag would suffice.
Sandi is a perfect example of why I would never give my information on this blog. it would take her about five minutes to grab a quote of mine out of context and try to hurt our business with it. That may not be the extent of it. Ever heard of Selena? She was the attractive young singer who was killed by her obsessive/jealous older frumpy subordinate. I’d by lying if I said I didn’t see a small possibility of that kind of thing.
Then there are the obsessive weird older unemployed guys who respond to every single one of my posts and/or have a crush on me. I wouldn’t dream of giving them my info. It could be another Rebecca Shaeffer situation. There are just some really really weird dudes out there.
OWS types like the geek in the video are not of great concern that way.
Terps, nobody was pissing on the guy’s car. Or defecating in Elmwood Park.
“predatory handicapped parking…”
Wait, the handicapped spot is surrounded by empty spots and yet this clown parks in the handicapped spot. And that’s predatory? What, the handicapped spot kept him from parking elsewhere?
#16 Oops, suzie truly is slipping back into her same old stupid trolling crap. Of course we all knew you never really left it, just changed it a little.
Right you are, Ron, call the cops and have them take it away.
Only one small problem with your post here:
“All of that seems like an awfully expensive lesson to teach yourself… Perhaps merely not parking (and acting) like a d-bag would suffice.”
Who says terps is acting?
If someone was pissing on my car in Roanoke, I would assume an OWS rally was forming and I would be grateful that they were not performing #2 on my car.
I admit, I leave notes for people who can’t park. It’s nothing short of frustrating when I can’t find a parking space in a limited area (a store with a microscopic lot, for example) because some genius extends thinking outside the box mentality to carparks.
But the video…dude, get yourself some Xanax.
Considering the people who DO urinate in public, on buildings etc. downtown (not nearly as many as used to though), an OWS Rally would still be the least likely assumption terps.
“The Ferrari aspect of this is irrelevant. If I caught someone pissing on my car I would kick his ass.”
Another guy acting real tough behind his key board. Act first ask questions later eh?
“The majority of the top 10 wealthiest members of congress are democrats.
Do the math.”
I did bobh and found 10 of the top 20 wealthiest members of congress are from the GOTP. So what? I just did a little profiling is all. I see a roly poly fat white guy with a Ferrari and assumed he’s Republican. I’m sure I’m wrong when I assume fat white guys are predominantly GOTPers. Saw a picture recently of a meeting of the local TP and that’s all I saw, so I just made an assumption. Excuuuuse me…
And then there was the time when I saw a police car parked on a sidewalk outside a hotel. It was no emergency. He was attending a meeting inside.
Hey old blue, was there a parking lot nearby?
This video is fake. The guy wouldn’t be screaming to a loser ‘this is a ferrari” and running around pushing him around like a little kid. He also wouldn’t say “I could buy your family”. This is nothing but OWS fake crap.
A guy who earned the money to buy a ferrari would do one of two things:
1. Ask the little twit what he thinks he’s doing, then call the police.
2. Beat the hell out of the little twit right then and there.
This video is fake.
That was my thought when I saw the video.
“Beat the hell out of the little twit right then and there.”
And end up in jail and getting the hell sued out of him.
My other thought on this…chances are, the person who owned the car would probably not be constantly watching through a window to be looking at his car. He’d probably be busy working. Just seemed staged and phony. Funny, but phony.
BTW, I do partly agree with suzie, the video has a fake feel to it.
