Rich Massholes know the best place to show off their manhood is at a bus stop they've commandeered

Ferraris at a bus stop on Boylston Street

Alex C. captured two Lamborghinis and a Ferrari whose drivers figured the absolute best place on Boylston Street to stop and compare the size of their, um, wallets this afternoon would be the bus stop at Clarendon Street. He reports:

I told them they were in a bus stop right after they parked there, and they were like "whatever."

Tow the fuckwads. Somewhere far away.

Tow trucks are averse to towing shiny, new, expensive cars. If they get one scratch on the car while towing it, they're liable for it.

BU could exercise some control over those students.

The students cruising and racing exotic cars daddy bought them is well-documented.

Unless daddy also bought a new named building for the school, BU can afford to teach the kid some decency.

IIllegally-parked cars are towed at the owner's expense, period. If a tow truck scratches it, the owner should be responsible, not the tow company.

They're pulled over yes, but they really aren't parked. It looks like the 2 guys were driving convertibles and got out to put jackets on. Considering it was 10-15 degrees warmer outside the City (and these guys passed me on the Pike eastbound about 20mins before this tweet), I'm guessing they just stopped for a minute. Is it "legal"? No, but they weren't going to park in bus lane and leave their vehicles there.

I don't care if your pants are on fire and you need to make an emergency stop to put them out. You just keep driving until your privates burn off because there is no stopping in a bus stop [or bike lane] if you are not a bus, not even for a second, no matter what.

You've never pulled over in front of a hydrant, handicap spot, bus stop, or crosswalk for 2mins to let someone out/pick someone up, grab something out of the trunk? If not, you're a better person than I am.

And I think most other people probably are too.

Two minutes in a crosswalk et al inconveniencing lots of people rather than taking two minutes to legit park (just inconveniencing yourself)?

Anyone that regularly does this is a selfish jackass, 'buddy'.

Let's be honest, the kind of person who thinks even emergency stopping in a bus spot is inappropriate probably hasn't had an emergency while driving, broken down, etc. Unless they were being hyperbolic in their post...it certainly reads that way.

I live in Cambridge and I can't tell you how many times I get to my bus stop and some sh*thead is sitting in it AND MAYBE ONE OF THE DOZENS OF ONSTREET SPACES ARE OCCUPIED. It's typical spite, small-mindedness and douche-baggery on the part of drivers.

With driving, everything is "Me! Me! Me! Now! Now! Now!" Take the bus. Learn some patience. Learn that the world doesn't revolve around you. Grow up.

An emergency is an emergency. I'll grant that needing to use the bathroom is an emergency. But blocking a bus stop or crosswalk to put on a jacket? Come on.

To bad they don't enforce the no parking at bus stops - I see it all the time - people think they are "running in somewhere for a second" and no-one holds anyone accountable.....

Good for them. You do realize a lot of crimes are tweeted about and never actually phoned in? This is despite Twitter accounts actually stating "this is not for reporting crime".

Maybe I just follow a better class of tweeters, because this seems to come up a lot and they usually say they contacted police first (or, in this case, since it wasn't an emergency, 311).

Real simple, just search MBTA Transit Police in Twitter. Take note of how many crimes were tweeted about to the 'do not report crimes here' account. It appears that's usually the extent of the concern, just a tweet falling on a partially manned account.

And by 'notified' you mean someone tweeted it, thinking it was really the same thing as calling the police.

And by "notified," you mean using that newfangled fellytone, or tellyphone, or whatever-the-hell it's called rather than just walk into the precinct house and report it like a normal person.

Again, the Transit Police twitter account says 'do not report crimes here'. So what do the concerned public do? Yup, report crimes to Twitter and nowhere else.

up
Voting closed 0

Hard to believe, I know, but a lot of people report things on Twitter to let other people know about some particular situation (I mean, look at how many of the posts here are based on tweets). They tag @mbta or whatever the Transit Police handle is (I can never remember it) so people who have saved searches on those can find them. That doesn't mean they didn't use the transit-police app, or gasp, made an actual voice call to report something to them first.

You're like the people who delight in complaining every single time I run a photo of a car crash or storrowing that the person should keep his or her hands on the wheel instead of risking everybody's life by snapping a photo, without stopping to think that maybe the photographer was a passenger (or that the car was at a complete stop).

Bus should have blocked them in. Transit PD shows up, has a dog signal that there's drugs in the cars. Impound and send the cars off to a lab to be ripped apart for 3 months, "ooops! no drugs...aw shucks here are the parts for you to put your cars back together fellas" /sovereign immunity

For the last time you transplant, only people from outside Mass use the term massholes. If you want to claim that you "live" here, stop using the term. It's continued use shows that you will really never be one of us.

As the article say, out -of towners use the term.

I have heard and read actual Massachusetts residents use the term. Don't believe me? I don't care.

As for my origins, I've never tried to hide where I'm from; it's only insecure, angry people who seem to bring it up during an argument. But, yeah, as long as we're on the topic: I am a Bostonian. I've lived here longer than a lot of the people born at the Brigham, I pay taxes here, I vote here, we raised a kid here (and sent her through BPS). Y'know, it's pretty easy to be born somewhere; you don't have to do a thing. It's a lot harder to consciously choose to make your life in a place, especially when knowing you'll run into people like you all the time.

It's people that live someplace a long time that help create it. That includes people that moved there and live there for many years, and it also includes locals. How people define local varies from person to person.

If they live there now, they're part of the community. You don't get grandfathered privileges because you've lived somewhere longer than the person who lives next door.

That's not what what was said. People who have lived somewhere a long time are more integrated then others.

And sometimes, especially at neighborhood development meetings, it's used to justify ignoring or discounting people who weren't born there, no matter how long they've lived there (no, this hasn't happened to me personally, I live in an area where "development" means "adding dormers," but I certainly see it time after time).

There are also some people who will suggest that longer time residents don't have much to add and shouldn't complain about anything, which isn't reasonable either. The point is, plenty of people have something to contribute, but if someone isn't going to hand around for as long, born there or not, they might have a different perspective in comparison to someone who is.

Interestingly, I have seen (and heard) two of these cars on St. James several times over the past few months. Wonder whether they live somewhere in the Back Bay.

Back Bay is home to their pied-à-terre. Perhaps it's one of the auto dealers' priviliged heirs jetting into the Mandarin for the weekend from Connecticut. Remember that pedestrian struck by the drag-racing Bentley driver on Beacon St.? No? Oh right, that's because the driver got away with it. Daddy's rich? Then speed down local streets, put cyclists and pedestrians at risk, park at fire hydrants, block bus stops and those in charge will look the other way.

I suppose. But I'm assuming they're very rich 'students', most likely from the the middle east or Asia. Either that, or they're from metro NYC (CT usually), maybe both.

I was sent a link to this from a friend of mine. My buddies and I were just out enjoying a nice day and it got a bit chilly.

I am not a college student.
I am not from Europe.
"Daddy" did not buy me this car.

I'm an adult who pulled over in a safe place to throw a jacket on. I could clearly see there was no bus on its way down Boylston, so we pulled over. If there was one approaching we wouldn't have stopped there.

Why is everyone jumping to conclusions about rich kids. There are adults to buy their dream cars too.

Haters gonna hate..I personally love the exotic car scene and if u gotta pull over for a second you gotta pull over simple as that.. You could park on my front lawn for all I care lol...some people just want something to bitch about constantly yet these are the same people vacationing on the lakes in my area destroying everything, drunken speed boating killing people, dumping trash, starting fires without permits, and fighting forcing authorities to post new laws because of there ignorance and refusal to follow local laws ...its an unfair world out there so keep enjoying what u do, people are just jealous of your success and most likely always will be..there the real problem and if they want something to cry about they should take a good look at the loser in the mirror..I have never met an exotic car owner that wasn't social, friendly and a respectable person..so to all the sensitive jealous cry babies out there, your not perfect so stop bitching

I didn't jump to conclusions. I see a photo of cars clearly parked at a bus stop. I don't care if you don't see a bus coming when you pull over. One, sometimes the move quickly. Two, sometimes they're around the corner. Three, sometimes you're wrong. Four, it encourages others to do the same. Five, it presumes a classist response from law enforcement: "they won't ticket me, I'm clearly rich and better than everyone because I have a nice car and can do what I want."

There are a ton of places to legally park in the city. Find one of those. Or watch a weather report and be prepared. Or turn your heat on. Or don't drive stupid cars where if the weather changes a little bit you to change your clothes. So many better options.

When people see someone behaving like a juvenile, they assume they are observing a juvenile.

Adults who are acting like juvenile, selfish jerks who should grow up. You should not look on a bus stop is not a safe and convenient place for you to throw a jacket on. That is bad behavior. Shame.
