Day 455 of 365 More.

And the hits just keep on coming.

Got out of work and couldn’t remember where I parked my car. I always park on the same street on one of two blocks. I don’t always remember where, but its usually easy to find.

And yet, I couldn’t. I walked the blocks about 4 times, and my truck just wasn’t there. Finally I called the police to find out if I’d been towed. After sitting on hold for 5 minutes, the cop came back and told me that I had been towed by the city. He had no further details other than the phone number for the tow yard.

I called the tow yard, but they were closed. A security guard answered the phone and tried to look my plates up but couldn’t find anything. I told him the cops told me it was there, so he agreed to look around. He finally found it, but still had no idea why it had been towed or how much its going to cost me to get back.

So now I have to call tomorrow morning to find out. Not only is this probably going to cost me a couple hundred, but I’m starting to think that I’ll never even find out why. Was I in a handicapped spot? Blocking someone’s driveway without realizing? Partially in the yellow? I honestly don’t have the foggiest idea.

I hate life.

    Really great! The picture, I mean. Not the towing.

    @heathzib: thanks. At least something good came out of today, I guess.

    Great picture. One of my favorite clone shots I’ve seen so far.

    And when you finally get to your truck, shouldn’t there be a ticket or something that says why it was towed? If not, couldn’t you contest the towing?

    Damn! This rivals my speeding ticket 1 block from home morning!

    But I agree – this is a fantastic photo!

    Seen in my contacts’ photos. (?)

    Great clone shot, man. Travelinjim is right, I think. If there’s no reason for the tow, contest the hell out of it.

    Yah, there should be a ticket. There pretty much has to be a ticket. And then you should examine the ticket closely and make sure it accurately describes your vehicle and anything else. When I was in NYC I rarely had to pay tickets. They were always slightly inaccurate and I contested every one of them.

    @Travelinjim: got it back. There was a ticket. Claims that someone complained that I was blocking their driveway. I don’t really know that I have any way to refute that.

    @lrayholly: thanks.

    @MegaBee: as I told him, supposedly someone couldn’t get out of their driveway.

    @marmal8: yeah, I was hoping, but I don’t know that there’s anything I can do about this one. That’s $110 down the drain.

    @tkmckenzie: Thanks. I was pretty happy with how it turned out.
