- Party-Fahrer hasst alle Freunde am nächsten Morgen
The video depicts a frustrating encounter with a party driver who vanishes for three hours, confuses card and phone PINs, and leaves the narrator to pay the bill. The driver's actions cause multiple stops during the ride home, and when confronted, they give the middle finger and physically assault the narrator. Despite their inconsiderate behavior, the narrator manages to get the driver home safely.
