Hey! Put that down!

Good thing I was home and awake late tonight. Got a call about an hour ago now, first thought was wondering what work wanted when I've been off for a week. No, it's my mother-in-law, they're hooking my car up to a tow truck out front.

Yeah, my car. Or at least it will be, once I get my license and assuming we can fix whatever (electrical?) problems it has. My New Yorker, dammit!

Anyway, I wake up Gazer & he runs out to talk to the tow guy. Apparently they'd been called to haul it off because it's a non-resident car. Huh?! Great, some little SOB's managed to steal our parking sticker out of the front window.

Gazer (with some of his relatives' help) finally convinces tow guy that it's our car, and yes, we do live here. He wants $50 cash (half their towing charge) to let it down off the truck and leave it alone for the night. Tow guy also has a paper saying it's a legal charge. I had $41 in my wallet, after MIL paid me back $40 last Wednesday, and we scrounged around the house to put together the rest of it. We've got enough money to cover it, just not usually in cash.

Tow driver said he'd try to keep their company (Bluegrass Towing) from coming back tomorrow to get it, since we think the office is closed Sundays it might be Monday before we can get another sticker.

If these wankers ever did anything about security around here - like fix the damn parking lot lights that have been out for a couple of years now - some a'hole wouldn't have been able to steal our parking sticker and we wouldn't have this mess in the first place. Stupid sticker's supposed to be the kind that tears apart if you try to peel it loose, but apparently they can't get that right either.

I hope to Hell they'll reimburse us for the drop charge, or at least take it off next month's rent.
