This day started off on an unfortunate note =/ I went out last night and didn’t get home until 8:30-ish. Well, after 5pm there is absolutely no parking around here – in my apt. complex, on the street…nowhere! So I was driving around for 10-15 minutes trying to find a place to park when I just said “fuck it” and parked in another apartment complex across the street from mine. I wasn’t thinking clearly (obviously) b/c I knew there was a distinct possibility that my car could be towed away but I thought…”I’ll only leave it here for less than 12 hours, and then I’ll move it in the morning – when everyone has gone to work.” Anyway, I woke up at around noon (stupid move) and went to move my car. Lo and behold, it was GONE! I didn’t see any broken glass (lol) so I didn’t think it was stolen. I figured it was towed so I called the towing company. They had my car…I called a cab and got to the towing company. I paid about $235 (eek!) to get my car back and someone wrote on a piece of paper, “Hey asshole, don’t steal my parking space!” and put the paper on my windshield. Lol….I had a laugh about that. I didn’t mind being called an “asshole” b/c what I did was pretty asshole-ish of me and I would probably do the same thing. And besides, I was so relieved to finally have my car back. I might have to cough up an extra $85 per month to have my own private garage/storage space. It may sound kinda high but since there is no parking around this bitch- I think it’s worth it. Better to pay that than to have your car towed!
