parking valet economics

Even parking valets now have an opinion about Greece!  After an insensitive Sixt ad, that the company “is now accepting Drachmas”, insulted enough Greeks, Sixt employees had been getting life threatening phone calls “not to mention general Nazi accusations” says company owner.

Nobody should threaten anyone’s life in a civilized world and not all Germans are Nazis either. This is a generalization which is unfair and uncalled for but also inaccurate. In fact it is as inaccurate as the idiocy that all Greeks are lazy, an assertion populist politicians and demagogic press have been puking all over the place for months, appealing to the lowest instincts of the German people.

I think people need to think twice before they shoot their mouth off uttering idiotic generalizations and I also think that parking valets should probably stick to parking.
