No doubt her parents think she's the most wonderful gift to planet Earth that ever happened. The Second Coming. They bought her a luxury car but apparently didn't give her money for food.
Careful to judge.
Maybe that girl worked hard on her "Only Fans" site to gather all that money.
Although cars are bought with nothing down...
That stunt might have been a stint on another fine app she's followed on.
Them teens be workin' hard, Roxy!

:fingersx:

I highly doubt she paid for it since she didn't seem to care about damaging it by hitting people or throwing things out the sunroof or crashing it anywhere.

Worked 3rd shift for a major retailer that was open 24/7 years ago

When they saw someone shoplifting a page would be made over the PA something like, "Jim Smith you have a call on line two".

It was then our job to slowly head for the front entrance and remain discreetly out of sight so when Mr. six cartons of cigarettes stuffed in his coat showed up there was an option.

Stop and be escorted to the security office or get tackled by six guys looking for some excitement and then be escorted to the security office.

That policy ended one year when an employee was stabbed and killed at another store trying to stop someone.

It's disheartening letting them get away but people in the story above could of lost their life over $100 worth of food.

Better to pull surveillance video, file a police report, and know people like them are probably hanging themselves with drugs and alcohol.

Ideal world (not really 'cause I believe in "Justice"...):
I'd punch/hit/kick her repeatedly for that stunt.
Repeatedly.
Means that repeatedly I would punch her repeatedly.
And also her jackass friends who threw things at that poor girl hanging to the hood.
My body would hurt from punching/hitting/kicking them.

  • Around here, I don't think it is legal for drivers under 18 to have other under age passengers (based on how I drove under 18, probably a good law).
  • Who would risk their life for $115 owed to a chain restaurant?
  • Ohio is whack. :lol:

When I was 16 as long as you had your license and not just a temp permit you could have underage passengers. I have no idea what the current law is for teens.

We reap what we sow.

These are our fucking kids doing this shit.

This is just the beginning.

That said, who’s running after a group of people who bailed on Buffalo fucking Wild Wings??

Just try to get a picture, tell the manager and go to the next table.
I’m sure they’re all on security cameras already.

I feel like the manager should explain this to the employees on Day 1:
Please don’t try to apprehend anyone—you’re not qualified or authorized.

Indeed. I believe the "no passengers under 18" law applies in Maryland. It must not apply in Virginia because there have been incidents in VA with carloads of teens under 18 recently with no mentions of it being illegal.

I drove like a lunatic (some would say I still do) at 16 and regularly had a carload of other under 18 kids with me. We didn't even have seat belt laws.

Several years ago, the Gov't monopoly liquor stores advised their staff to no longer attempt to stop or interfere with shoplifters. Several employees had been seriously injured, threatened etc in various situations and of course they are not the police. So some of the busier stores hired private security guards to deal with shoplifters and trouble makers.
However, as a side effect, some thieves took this 'hands off' policy to mean it was open season on stealing from liquor stores. In some cases groups of thieves stormed a store and grabbed all sorts of merchandise and just walked out. All caught on surveillance cameras of course. Later the police did whatever they could. In some cases, thieves were caught and charged. But in others, they got away with it.

I certainly agree with you that it's not worth risking your health or safety over some stolen merchandise. Let the police deal with it.

Back when I worked on ships, we sometimes had to do a stowaway search before leaving certain ports.
Nobody ever said what we were supposed to do if they didn’t just throw up their hands and go awwww you got me!!!
Years ago, I found one in Egypt. I don’t know why he wanted to leave and I’m not judging his story. But he made a decision that I wasn’t gonna stop him.
I had to stop him.
So I stopped him.
Since it was an engineering space and I was the wiper (engine department), I also had to go back and clean up his blood.

But I was defending me.…
I didn’t care where he wanted to go.

If people are going to defend merchandise, they better know their mandate and authority before they come to work that day. If that devout employee had caused the car to crash and kill someone, who knows what happens to her?
I’d like to think “no jury would convict”, but you know….
Lawyers.

RW BMWs are the worst snow cars of all time.....lucky they did not kill all involved
This is the "generally accepted knowledge" - but really it's not the Car's fault.

True, BMW's have much more horsepower and can be "difficult" to control in the snow. But not if you are a good (snow) driver. I don't like or enjoy driving in the snow in mine, but I do have to do it on occasion. I've mostly been able to drive in the snow without incident. BUT .... you can't "drive it like you usually do".

I also have the advantage of having "Race" training, as well as having been an Instructor at Car Control Schools. It's way more dependent on the skill of the Driver, combined with required "good sense". Which is not an option found in most BMW's.
