I wrote last month about studies that show that rich people do tend to behave like jerks, supporting a prejudice that I have long held based on personal observations. In particular, people who have expensive cars tend to be rude drivers.
There is an example of this from the UK where the driver of a Mercedes Benz couldn’t be bothered to wait in line at a stop light to make his turn, but instead decided to go into the lane for traffic going in the opposite direction so that he could make the turn immediately.
Unfortunately for him, a pedestrian saw him changing lanes and stopped in front of his car and insisted he get back in the correct lane. The driver was furious and after his yells for the pedestrian to move did not produce the desired results, even tried to intimidate the pedestrian to move by repeatedly bumping into him with his car. But showing extraordinary nerve, the pedestrian refused to yield and instead called the police who arrived remarkably quickly.
