BOCA RUDETON: Our New Column Highlighting The (Allegedly) Rude In Boca

BOCA RATON, FL ( — is pleased to announce our new column, Boca Rudeton. It’s a section we’ll use to highlight the rude among us — those who give Boca Raton a really bad name. Not people charged with a crime, but residents and visitors who seem to be so self-absorbed that they don’t realize — or just don’t care — how their actions appear to other people.

Here’s our first of what will be a frequent but unlikely daily installment:

JANUARY 1, 2017:

This woman drove several kids to a West Boca playground in a golf cart — with no license plate (i.e. not street legal) — and then spent considerable time ignoring the kids while conducting what appeared to be a FaceTime call, in public for all to hear and see. The topic: shopping and plans for the rest of the day.

FaceTime and speakerphone in public? No problem for this person in our first edition of Boca Rudeton!

And then there’s this driver who parked his or her Lexus well outside of a parking space in the Shadowood plaza, right by Old Navy and the movie theater. We don’t know if the front of the car still exists.

Parking space? When you drive a Lexus at the Shadowood shopping plaza, you can apparently leave your car anywhere.

Are you rude in Boca? Remember, there’s no expectation of privacy in a public place, so be rude at your own risk — or you just may end up featured in Boca Rudeton!
