Valet Gives $300,000 Ferrari Keys to Wrong Guy

A problem almost no one can relate to: The valet hands the keys to your $300,000 Ferrari to the wrong person.

It happened in July at the Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club, according to police, who ended up arresting the man and woman who drove off in it.

Now, the owner of that yellow 2014 Ferrari 458 Italia Spider has filed a lawsuit against the Vinoy and its parking operator, 717 Parking Enterprises.

The lawsuit and St. Petersburg police report tell the tale of how a brightly colored Italian sports car worth six-figures was stolen with apparently minimal effort.

Labor Day 2017

Labor Day - a day set aside to honor the contributions of the American worker - is today, Sept. 4, 2017. Here are some of the best quotes, sayings, remembrances to celebrate the workers' holiday and the unofficial end of summer:

"While we are fighting for freedom, we must see, among other things, that labor is free." - - Woodrow Wilson

"As we celebrate Labor Day, we honor the men and women who fought tirelessly for workers' rights, which are so critical to our strong and successful labor force." -- Elizabeth Esty

We all work hard, so let's enjoy Labor Day.
