Your Valet Nightmare Comes True!

Have you ever pulled up to the valet at a restaurant or bar and had a thought go through your mind about not leaving the car there? Hey, it’s ok we’ve all thought it. There have been a few occasions where I have opted to park it myself rather than giving my keys to a 18 year old kid. Well just wait until you read this story and watch this video because you may never give your car to the valet again. Thanks to Straightline for sharing this story! If it were me i’d press charges in a heart beat if I caught the valet tearing up my ZR1… That’s not even funny!

Okay, so this video happens to be a Dallas auto auction security guard and not a valet per se, but the idea is the same: Kid gets to drive a car from A-B. Takes the long, sideways way ’round. Everyone gets in trouble.

We had a friend in high school who was a valet for a small, but pricey restaurant in a New England vacation spot. Claimed he burned a Viper’s tires to cords while the elderly owner was enjoying his chowdah. Trouble is, the guy could barely drive his 5.0 Mustang without careering into a marsh. No way he drove a Viper without dying. But without a video camera handy, well, it was our sense against his word.

That’s where this guy comes in. You can brag all you want to your buddies that you screwed around with someone else’s 638 horsepower Corvette ZR1, but unless there’s video, who can truly say you did or did not. Maybe he just videoed the boss tossing it around? That base, too, is covered by the best part of this video– the driver exiting the car, throwing his hands in the air and finger-gunning the camera.

The guard has been fired and the Corvette’s owner–Woodhouse Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge near Omaha, Nebraska.– is pressing charges.

    Things like this make me sick. I had to work a conference in downtown Ft Worth recently. I refused to valet at the hotel there, as I’d seen how they treated my buddies Mustang GT and another friend’s Lexus IS250. Peeling out of the parking lot and sliding round corners.

    There was no way I was leaving my 2011 Camaro SS with them. I chose to park it near the top floor of the convention center parking lot, under a camera, next to the other nice cars that had sensibly parked up there!

    I will never valet again now that I have such a nice powerful car. I had valeted at that hotel before, when I had a Jeep Commander and didn’t think much of it till that night I saw them pull out my friends cars. Never again.
