Extra layers of stupidity

An angry cellphone customer in Korea drove a car into the door of the headquarters of SK Telecom.

Now, that's dumb enough as it is. But there's more here. You've heard of "defense in depth"? This guy has stupidity in depth.

  • The car was a Mercedes.
  • It wasn't his.
  • The non-working phone was made by Samsung, not SK Telecom.
  • He bought it from a distributor, not from SK Telecom.
  • He'd been told the problem was with the USIM card, so he blamed SK Telecom, because they made it. Except they didn't; SK Telecom doesn't manufacture anything. The card may have been made by SK Teletech (a sibling company in the SK Group).

It gets better. Look at the picture. People are taking pictures of the wreck with their cellphones. Now, given that SK Telecom is Korea's largest cellphone carrier (about 50% share), and these people are at SK Telecom's headquarters, it's a good bet that most or all of those pictures are going to be sent over SK Telecom's network. So, this guy vandalized the wrong company and wound up increasing their revenue.

Plus, he went through the door. He had a whole glass wall to choose, so he went in the door, and got stuck in all the metal & whatnot for a revolving door.
