One of the most infuriating customer interactions an individual can ever endure is having your credit card declined. You just want to make your purchase and go home, but now there’s a time-consuming complication that you know in your deepest heart of hearts that you have money and credit on your account to complete the transaction. But there are these strangers that are basically saying, “You are a poor person and have no money.” Now everybody in line thinks that you have no money. You can either spinelessly squirm away and call your credit card company in the car to resolve the misunderstanding or make a big stink out of the situation and yell at the cashier, even though it’s not the cashier’s fault. John Parsley chose the latter.
Last Thursday, when John Parsley’s credit card was declined not once, but twice at the Alva Comfort Inn and Suites hotel in Oklahoma, he lost his shit. The 62-year-old told the staff that he was going to “run his truck over them and the property.”
He then went outside and hopped in his 2006 GMC Sierra and drove into the hotel. CCTV captures the horrifying moment that he smashed his pickup truck through the entrance of the hotel. Parsley slammed his pickup through the hotel entrance and nearly killed two employees, who had to jump out of the way of the rampage.
Thankfully, no one was seriously injured from this maniac’s careless actions, but it did cause more than $100,000 worth of damage. Hopefully his credit card works to pay for all that shit.
Parsley, who is from Gonzalez, Texas, was held on a $1 million bond and faces two felony counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and one count of malicious injury to property valued at more than $1,000, according to court records.
Remember people, trucks don’t nearly kill people, grumpy old men who are denied ordering shrimp cocktail from room service, watching hotel room porn and taking a nap nearly kill people.
