Now, I have no agenda and no beef against those that are employed in the valet parking business, but honestly, what is the point of valet parking??? I went to the Hyatt Regency in Downtown this past weekend and saw that the Valet was $10 dollars for 0-3 hours. Are you kidding me?? If given the option, i would park my own damn car and walk my own damn ass down to the elevator and to the hotel. I mean, it’s as if any somewhat high-class establishment has to have some sort of valet to signify it’s level of high-classness. I have had and still do have friends who work in this valet business, and I mean no offense to them, but c’mon, honestly what is the point of it?? I’m surprised they don’t have valet type services in other industries too. What if someone valeted your clothes into a laundry machine at a laundromat?? All a valet does is park your car, and even then, you are putting at risk any valuables you may have in the car. I know that most valets are honest and wouldn’t take anything from any of the cars, but I have known more than a few that have. I just don’t get it and never really have. I have NO PROBLEM parking my own car – I would actually prefer to do that. I’d rather have the receptionist people at a hotel be a lot more cordial and helpful than to have a valet. I know that the valet is a part of life and you cannot avoid it, but I have yet to find even one good reason as to why we need it. Hmmm….
