I always knew Starbucks and Hummers were a dangerous combination. I guess it just echoes the absurdity of American culture. He's driving his $55,000 automobile grabbing his $5.00 cup o' joe. I mean there is nothing wrong with it, this 10 mpg tank driving no-neck worked hard protecting some unscrupulous business man that decided he'd committed to many corporate sins. But the meter maid that makes $16,000 a year is just doing her job too. I used to live in Boston and I hated the meter maids...but hot coffee to the face isn't deserved. And did you catch the smug girlfriend in the Hummer. When asked to move the behemoth, she POINTS at the Starbucks! These are the type of people...eh don't get me going on society.

Well, frankly, I think that the meter maid should have been a wee bit more considerate. However,Francois Youhanna probably could have avoided the whole uncomfortable moment by merely driving his All-terrain Humvee through the front window of the Starbucks and ordered his Venti Drip Sumatra Blend from his driver seat. What good is it if you leave your native country of Lebanon behind, strike it rich in the bodyguard business, if you STILL have to leave your Hummer in order to get your morning brew? Anyway, she probably saw him coming from a mile away and thought he was an easy target. I bet she ran straight into the jettisoned coffee arc instead of trying to catch him as he slipped on the ice. Some civil servant.......
