Sammy met the stupidest man alive.

Sammy works at a major car dealership. He's a service technician, but since it's a dealership there is also a sales floor in the building, too.

To test drive a car, all you have to do is give the secretary your license. She makes a photocopy and puts it in her little file with a note of which car you're taking out. Then out you go with the salesperson. That easy. Anyone can do it. No matter how stupid they are. As long as they have a license.

So today, a salesman named Alex was talking to a customer. The customer liked a car and wanted to take it on a test ride. He and Alex got in the car and headed for the West Side Highway. On the highway, the driver pulls out a gun and holds it to Alex's head. After some roughing him up, he tells Alex to get out of the car. Understandably, Alex does as requested. Shaken, he heads back to the dealership. The cops come and take notes on the robbery.

While the cops are standing there taking notes, the customer comes back to the dealership to retrieve the copy of his license from the secretary. I am not shitting you. Indeed, the Stupidest Man in the World. Perhaps a future Darwin Award winner.

So did you witness this, or are you paraphrasing what you read/heard in your local media?

Oh god, poor Alex. [Do I know Alex?]

And yes, that was a very bad move...

The really dumb thing is stealing a car from a dealership where you've left your (real) ID.

If the guy realised his goof, and thought he might be able to retrieve the evidence before the cops showed up, that's maybe not so dumb.
