Im so tired of reading this stuff about "Kids are tearing apart the seams of society".
I did plenty of unsavory things when I was a teenager, but I didn't complain about the stuff I wasn't able to get away with to the people who were putting on the events.

If you pay enough attention, and read between the lines, you'll learn that a majority of the people here would say that the reason "Kids are tearing apart the seams of society" has far more to do with the lackadaisical attitude and absenteeism of parents than kids being inherently bad.

The OP has no right or room to bitch and complain about having to shell out $20 to get into the event. At least, not in the way he did. Try this on for size "Wow, I had a lot of fun, but $20 is a bit steep for me for just an entry fee. If I knew everything that was involved, I might feel differently though." would have received a VERY different response than the one he got. Besides, he drives and M3 - modded to some extent, I'd bet. His life can't suck that badly.

I am 18. iv been a member here since I was 16. You are being very ignorant as to what the problem here is. He is uneducated as to the cause and the purpose of the event. Yea the kid has a bit of an attitude, he is probably around 16 or 17, same age as I am practically. He is a peer to me. He has the same sort of "stick up his butt" as you would say that you probably had.

You guys are ridiculous. Bark at him for trying to sneak in, and bark at him for his dishonestly and "shady-ness" But then you turn around and say "Hey lets have beer gardens at a CAR event" Great idea. You might as well call it DUI-fest. If you want to drink and then drive away in your BMW do so that doesn't endanger the better thinking half of the population. Alcohol and auto's(even auto events) do not mix.
You're aware that there WAS alcohol served at the event, right? In two different places. Apparently you fit into the "uneducated" and "ignorant" ranks as well.

I guess you figure that people don't know when to stop drinking. I could probably say that at 18 *I* didn't know when to stop drinking.

What are your thoughts on egotistical, arrogant guys who have far more car than they really understand how to drive? That's just as deadly a combination
