Are you surprised she was driving a BMW?
Some people just don’t get it. Nor do some know how to drive a car, or at least to park one. Jerry Seinfeld, no introductions needed here, recently experienced all of that the hard and painful way. This past week, Seinfeld was driving his 1973 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR in the Hamptons. He stopped to get a cup a coffee and parked his car directly across the street. Then it happened.
As he was sitting enjoying his coffee with a friend, Seinfeld suddenly heard "the sound of metal crunching - rare, classic, expensive, vintage metal, by the way - from across the street. A sickening sound to a car person," Seinfeld recalled. A lady BMW driver had just backed into his car. He continued the story: "And even though I’m sure I deserved this, because of who I am and that I have this amazing car, I was furious. I ran across the street, out of my mind, and yelled at her, 'You just crashed into my car!' Of course, her reply was not, 'Oh, my God, I’m so sorry,' but, 'Well, I couldn’t see it.' She didn’t seem to understand why I would be upset or how this was in any way her fault."
Fortunately, the repair bill isn’t an issue for Seinfeld, but still, the whole thing completely sucks. "She drove off. She offered to give me her information, but the idea of having her in my life for one more second was intolerable," the comedian realized. "But that woman is still an idiot." Jerry, you’re awesome.
