Here’s a winner out Gardner, who just so happens to be a well known business owner as well….
Bad ass!!! Anyone can assault an able bodied man in his prime. But it takes a special kind of dooshnozzle to assault a 74 year old simply because he wanted to go home and didn’t feel like paying you $20 for the temporary inconvenience of parking in your spot for a couple minutes.
And this is Greenfield we’re talking about here. Not New York or Boston. Greenfield. You don’t have to drive around for an hour to find a spot. You’re in the middle of nowhere. Park across the street.
This is the scene of the crime:
As you can see, the Franklin County hipster market is directly next to the Mattress Outlet on Route 2A. I can understand if you own a store and you see someone in your spot that you get pissed off. You earned that spot by opening a business, no doubt about it.
But the second you see that the guy who took your spot is a 74 year old man who is APOLOGIZING to you because he took your spot while he was inside getting medicine that might prevent him from dying, and has offered you a few bucks for his unforgivable crime, you just gotta take the L and find a new spot. There’s plenty of spots on both sides of the street.
But nope, the Gardner Goatee Gangsta had to let the 74 year old guy know just how big his schmenzer is. And instead of just taking the apology the guy offers, or accepting the generous offer of $5 for the temporary inconvenience, he tries extorting this elderly man who was out and about to pick up his meds.
Think of all the time he wasted letting this poor old guy know that he was the Alpha male in this situation. All he had to do was just park across the street and walk over. A fifteen second delay. Instead he wasted all this time trying to extort some poor guy who parked in is precious spot in Greenfield.
The best part is that the Gardner Goatee Gangsta is the one who called the cops. He just assaulted a 74 year old guy who was being held against his will and wanted to go home, and he went and cried to the cops like he was the victim. Reminds me of a certain former City Councilor out of Worcester. The ability of some people to victimize themselves is truly remarkable.
But of course it backfired and now he’s on Turtleboy. Aside from diddling a kid, it doesn’t get much worse than getting arrested for hitting an elderly guy because he took your parking spot for five minutes.
Here’s another thing. The Gardner Goatee Gangsta lives in the furniture capital of New England. That’s literally the only reason to go to Gardner – to buy overpriced furniture and take your picture next to the world’s largest chair. But yet he opens his business 45 minutes away in Greenfield. In other words, he’s too chicken shit to compete with other businesses in his home town. His company doesn’t even appear to have a website or a Facebook page, but they do have assigned parking, so at least they’ve got that going for them. And they’ve been getting bombarded with one star Google reviews since this incident, but their reviews weren’t very good before that either:
I’d say that he should try to make amends for this by going on his business’s Facebook page and at least issuing a bullshit apology. Maybe bring the old guy in, give him some free shit, take a picture, and try to salvage what’s left of your reputation. But once again, that would require having a Facebook page or a website. And apparently the Gardner Goatee Gangsta is a VERY busy guy who doesn’t have the time to get with the 21st century.
The bottom line is that this guy is getting off easy. In my legal expert opinion he should be charged with kidnapping too. He went out of his way to make sure the guy could not leave. He moved his truck in closer to prevent any sort of escape. And then when the guy tried to move a sign in order to wedge his way out of there he got his ass kicked for it. Couldn’t think of a business that deserves to fail more than this guy’s bootleg crap happy mattress outlet. I’d rather sleep on a urine soaked junkbox baby making machine that I found by the railroad tracks between Canterbury Street and Main South.
