Dear Waltham: FUCK YOU!

I looked outside to ckeck the weather and noticed they were towing my car. Why? Because there's been a snow emergency. Not that anyone bothered to tell anyone. No signs on the streets, no cops announcing it with bullhorns all day (like the tow-truck driver claimed). They said "It was on channel 8!" And really, how could I miss that? Channel 8! That's the channel EVERYONE watches. What's that? You didn't know there was a channel 8? Neither did I.

I asked the truck driver what it'd take to get my truck back right then. He said $90. I asked if they took credit cards, he said no, cash only. Of course, 'cause everyone has $90 cash lying around on a Sunday night. So they towed my car and I had to go to an ATM and then to the impound lot with Em.

When at the impound lot, the genius woman taking my money kept answering the phone and giving directions instead of giving me my car back. I was very angry while I was there and talked with another guy who was waiting for his car. We talked about what a scam it was. On the way out, I said that at least I could cross that place off my list for when I needed body work done on my car and added "Oh, and 'Merry Christmas' to you too." I said this last angrily.

I hear her yell "HEY!", but I don't break stride and go to get my truck. She follows me out the door and says "You know, I can have the Waltham Police here in a minute". I said "I'm sure you can. You've got a nice little scam going here and you know it." I cleaned off my car and left. I'm kind of sorry she didn't call the cops 'cause I'd like to have asked them "SO officers, what's the penalty for telling someone you won't use their business and saying 'Merry Christmas' sarcastically?"

When we got back, a nice guy with a truck and plow helped us unstick the Prius from a snow bank (it got stuck when we got back) and plowed our driveway. He said no charge, so I gave him $40. At least there was one good point to the evening.

What I want to know is, where are people with nowhere but the street to park supposed to put their cars? This is a complete scam to pad city coffers.

Fuckers.
