As you hand the valet your keys, glance over your shoulder to see how the 1 percenters do it. Driving their six-figure rides right onto the brick pavement outside the front door, they toss the valet their keys, although they know that’s probably unnecessary.

A Beaverton gas station attendant was sent to the hospital Sunday afternoon with minor injuries after a 73-year-old man accidentally crashed into the Chevron gas station where she was behind the counter.
Although the man’s Cadillac Escalade didn’t go into the building when he hit the gas pedal instead of the brake as he parked in one of the spaces at the station at 14470 S.W. Allen Boulevard, it caused a wall to collapse and fall on the 39-year-old attendant. Beaverton police Detective Sgt. Jim Shumway said the woman’s leg was injured and she was taken to the hospital by ambulance. The incident happened around 1:50 p.m.
Gabriel Sugarman, 73, of Beaverton was cited for careless driving. Police said there were no signs he was intoxicated.
