Eddie McGuire tries to jump RTA queue

‘His power and influence is legendary in his native Melbourne but Eddie McGuire has found out that his name will not open the same doors in Sydney.

The former Nine Network chief executive got a rude awakening when he tried to jump the queue at a motor registry last week. [..]

McGuire’s final tactic was to turn up in person at 4.50pm – 10 minutes before the registry was due to close – go straight to the counter and demand to be served.

But that did not work either, prompting the furious multi-millionaire to demand to see a manager.

After a heated argument with RTA management, McGuire, 42, was told his only option was to take a numbered ticket and wait like everyone else.’
