A Guy In A BMW Cutting In Front Of An Ambulance To Yell At The Driver Is Redefining The Entitlement Game


This description of the situation seems incredibly poorly translated but maybe it can provide some color:


When the ambulance driver attempted to overtake a foreign car, BMW prevent this maneuver, locking the medical car. The man, who was driving a sport coupe, the driver began to show gestures of “first”, he turned to the right lane, and then got out and repeated roughly the same words. “You do not come to the challenge, I see it perfectly. You use [inaudible] for other purposes, in violation of the Administrative Code. You are not allowed to drive on the left lane, “- said the driver of BMW.


So what it seems like to me is a special triple whammy of hateability. You’ve got this guy not only being a hall monitor on the roads, he’s doing it to a public service vehicle that might have been in the process of saving a life, and the fact that this is clearly a dude of some wealth driving a BMW caps it all off. The entitlement of trying to tell an ambulance the rules of the road is one thing but being a rich guy in a nice car doing it definitely completes the look. Though I have to say, I had no idea being a BMW guy was a big red flag for most of society but people on Facebook seem to think that’s really what puts the video over the top:

Hey have you heard the one about BMW drivers compared to some object with sharp things on the outside? It’s a pretty fresh joke and more people should tell it. I can’t say I knew the world had this big stance against BMWs — I’ve only driven a rental once and found it to be delightful — but who am I to go against the hivemind? Classic BMW guy doing BMW guy things. Let’s all get our pitchforks and torches, that’ll show him for enjoying smooth rides and fine German engineering. Everyone boo this man!
