Nice Guy Fail

In what must be the biggest all time backfire of a nice gesture, the State of NoVa blog has the story of a BMW owner who voluntarily lent his car to a couple who, allegedly, had major car trouble and were desperate to get to a wedding on time. They strolled into the Hooters in Fairfax City with their tale of woe and walked out of there with the keys to the beemer (which had a number of valuables inside it) and the promise to return it the next day. They haven't been heard from since. [WaPo]
