road rage

Only five hours into Oktoberfest, and we already have ridiculousness going on.

Sam and I were enjoying a beverage at our favorite bar, the Bodega, with some friends, when an acquaintance comes in and directs our eyes out the front window to the street. A guy had been standing in a parallel parking spot saving it for a friend, and a man in a truck decided he wanted the spot.

The man in the truck ran over the guy in the parking space, breaking his legs.

We watched as the paramedics had to cut off the guy's socks and pant legs to assess the full extent of the damage. As the paramedics were loading him on the stretcher, the man who hit the guy was arguing with a cop about how it wasn't his fault. Ha.

Oh my goodness. How could it not be truck-guy's fault?! Madness! I think we are lucky that the Oktoberfest madness is contained in Munich over here.
