There was a guy in a crowded parking lot of a shopping mall, walking to his car when he saw a woman (an elderly woman) in a new Mercedes, waiting patiently for a parking space. The car which had been in the space pulled out and a "young kid" in a Corvette pulled into the space in front of her. She said "Young man, I was waiting for that space and I am in a hurry." The young man looked at her, patted his car and said, "That's what happens when you're young and fast." Incensed not only by his action, but by his statement, she backed her car up as far as she could for a straight shot and floored it and smashed her new Mercedes right into the back of his Corvette. Not believing what he just saw she did, he said, "Ma'am, how could you have done that?" and she said, " That's what happens when you're old and rich!"
