The Defective Tires Excuse Isn't Gonna Work This Time!

By
Real Estate Agent with Florida Supreme Realty SL514814

To the uninitiated this behavior may look juvenile! It's presence should never occur on a public road however, there is a recognized skill involved to keep the vehicle along its intended path. Imagine you've just closed on an $8,635,000 transaction. You don't have both sides but it's still a good days work. You just left closing and confirmed that the commission is already available in your checking account. You calmly exit the parking garage, pay your $10.00 and you're heading home. To some, this might be your HAPPY DANCE.   

I cannot condone this behavior but I do ask that you look closely at the video once again. The Corvette remains well within its lane of travel and impedes no other vehicles in its path. Acceptable? NO, although this is the feeling you should have after every successful closing. DRIVE ON my friends, DRIVE ON!

Kevin,

Definitely not acceptable, but I like the part about the commission in the bank. LOL A

Julie, I want you to know that that wasn't me, my Corvette is Silver, and usually just a blur!

Too bad that isn't your Vette and you celebrating that multi-million dollar sale.

Every sale is a celebration Gabe. I've got at least one more in me that'll be close to that number!

I like what you did with this, and the analogy you used. If I actually saw this in person, I would be thinking "idiot".

Many idiots exist on our roadways Sharon, one thing I'm certain about, this one was not texting at the time!

Good morning Kevin. Can't tell you that I never burned any rubber, but there would have been a little too much traffic, too many things can go wrong. Not a good idea.

Criss-crossing the state I see a lot of "wrong" activity in traffic and at high speed. The scariest are the hordes of rental cars which flood our streets in winter not knowing where they're going. WATCH OUT! JOE, WATCH OUT!

Kevin, feeling yes but why potentially damage a really nice Vet? If I owned that car I would some other way to celebrate..

I am gentler on them these days Bob but heck, they're made to be driven, not looked at. Could I interest you in a bottle of fine wine?

Kevin, this is such childish behavior and could have ended so much differently.  I prefer to celebrate a good sale with a great dinner and a glass of wine.

Hi Kevin J. May ,  The guy in the Corvette needs to drive a different car.  Maybe a 1972 VW bug!

I don't know the real reason behind the action but it wasn't the most appropriate location for such a huge burnout. So, how did you say you wanted your filet mignon prepared Joan?

To drive a VW on the edge takes much more skill than that Larry. He'd never have made it through that first loop off the driveway apron.

It must be a buyer in a hot real estate market . . . . and the buyers rushing to see the listing first.

Good luck and success.

Lou, if it continues we"ll all be driving Corvettes. May the best man win!

Ginny, at this pace the "Vette" could be paid for in cash by the end of summer! It won't be the ZO6, but it'll be nice.

Drivers like that should be allocated some cooling off time in the local jail. Reckless driving is not acceptable in any community.

I am certain that there would have been fines plus some time to mull it over Roy had the driver been observed by any Law Enforcement Officer. The consolation is that this reckless driving concluded by being wreck-less.
