Today's award goes to a clueless motorist in Chicago.
Around 8 a.m., a 42-year-old woman drove onto the lot at 901 South Wabash to park her car. As she entered the lot, a man in a neon reflective vest approached, told her where to park, and instructed her to leave the keys inside her 2008 silver Nissan Armada, CPD spokesperson Kellie Bartoli said.
The woman complied with his instructions and left the lot to conduct some business nearby. You already know what happened when she returned to the lot about an hour later. Her car and the man were long gone.

Did it never occur to the driver to check the "attendant's" credentials? To look for a hut or other official building out of which he worked? In particular, in every attended parking area I've used before, there's been a sign at the entrance with instructions on how to park, how to interact with attendants, etc. In this case, clearly, there were none - so why would she accept the orders of a random stranger whom she didn't know from Adam?
Yea, verily, the mind doth boggle . . .
