You're the stumpy, greasy-haired John Wayne Airport employee who gouged me out of beaucoup bucks. When I drove up alongside you and rolled down my window, you looked at my frazzled face and laughed condescendingly. When I asked you where the cheapest parking lot was, you told me they all had the same rates, adding that the price wasn't "too bad." I, of course, believed you, parked in the first lot I found and ran to the terminal. When I returned late Sunday night, already exhausted, I found out my three-day stint in the parking lot had set me back 66 bucks. After some thorough Googling, which I ignorantly forgot to do beforehand, I found out about a cheaper parking lot. Good job, douche. I hope ruining other people's lives makes you feel taller.

Typical spoiled, whiny southern California pansy boy who doesn't take responsbility for themselves. This guy "ruined your life" because you had to pay $66? Are you for real? Why don't you take an extended trip to a third world country, then come back to your cush little life in SoCal and reassess the situation once you've had a basis of comparison. Thank your lucky stars that your biggest problem in life is that you had to pay $66 to have your fancy automobile parked over the weekend while you flew around taking some trip. Oh, how tragic. There are people living in villages in third world countries who are getting pillaged and plundered by maurading militant rebels, who don't know where their next meal is coming from, who dress in what we would consider rags, who have no medical care so they die from simple illnesses and infections, and who have to hike a few miles on foot to get to the nearest source of drinking water - which usually isn't even clean. And that's in between giving birth to babies that probably won't last through their first year, not getting any sort of education, being subjected to barbaric cultural practices (like female circumcision) etc. etc. etc. And let's not forget about the whole subculture of the "garbage kids" in many third world urban cities, where thousands of kids live on the street, rummaging for food in dumps, sleeping on the street, selling their bodies, huffing chemicals and not living to be an adult. Go back to your cushy little life, pansy boy and get a fricking clue.

What was the parking attendant supposed to say? "No, we're far more expensive than the lot across the street." Your fault for being so gullible.

How you find the time to toss off a condescending comment like that and still save the world from all those ills is inspiring. Or are you just spouting off?

How about "prices vary" as opposed to "... all had the same rates ... ".

A point, but there is no excuse for a direct lie.

One doesn't have to actually be out there "saving the world" to be aware that it exists. Clearly Pansy Boy isn't really aware of anything beyond his cush little SoCal life if he thinks that the loss of $66 is having one's life "ruined." It's like, ruined....really? Ruined? Try losing a limb, or having your face burned or torn off, or losing your child - even worse, having your child kidnapped, so you never know what happened to them and never get closure. I mean I could go on and on, thinking of 10,000 other things that constitute having one's life truly ruined, but his little Hey You whine fest isn't one of them.
