I love my new Model S and I also love the attention it gets while I'm driving. What I'm not loving is that people seem to think it's okay to put their paws all over my car, lean on it as they try to peek inside, leave face and nose prints all over my windows when the car is parked and I'm out of sight. I parked all the way in Timbuktu at my office parking lot, yet people still managed to find it. The MC Red is like a fire in the night sky, it seems. I know we should all have such minor things to worry about, but I am surprised by people's behavior. If I saw a McLaren sitting in the parking lot, I would certainly look at it and admire it, but I wouldn't think it appropriate to touch it, lean on it, etc. because it is not my property.
When I left the parking lot yesterday, I saw what looked like a butt print on the right side of my windshield. It was probably someone's face cheek, but boy it sure didn't look that way. Buttons, zippers, rings on hands are all things that could scratch or damage the car's finish and I just don't like the fact that people think it's okay to touch someone else's car without permission. When I saw all the finger and nose prints on my car yesterday, I almost felt violated. I wonder how others feel about this. Maybe my expectations for people to keep their hands to themselves is unreasonable. Am I crazy?
