Since few people have a sense of community or respect public property in Lebanon, and since most are too lazy to walk 2 meters, our take today is on Valets Parking attendants.
We do not consider the valets to be second class citizens, and we do not paint everyone with the same brush. However, some are really arrogant, and we do agree with the points that Liliane, Finkployed and Lamal raised:
Park your own car, avoid giving it to a Valet, by Liliane
It’s a bit silly giving your car to a Valet parking when you’re going to an ordinary restaurant and even a coffee shop, moreover that place having a lot of parking spaces near it. I could understand if it’s raining too much, or the region doesn’t have parking spaces any place near, or it’s a fancy shmancy club or restaurant, however and I’ve noticed, many restaurants and ordinary diners now take over these parking spaces, which are on the road, and which legally are not theirs and is for the public. I am hating this kind of dictatorship

Valet Parking Part Deux, by Jamal
Forward Forum had a Valet parking service that would save these 20 some year olds a walk of no more than 50 meters, yet hundreds of the job searchers opted to pay the extra fee for the luxury of just tossing the car key.
