worst HOUR of my LIFE



I'm writing this in a FIRE red color to display my anger during this HOUR. So, Leanna and Ernesto are out of town in Cali and they let me use their car for the weekend. I went to Charlie's last night to watch American Idol and parked the car in his parking spot in his underground garage(it doesn't require parking permits, just assigned parking for residents). After a.i he drove me back to my apt. and parked for 5 minutes in this dentist parking lot right next to my apt. to kiss me goodnight. As he was about to leave, we heard a tow truck and Charlie quickly ran downstairs. His car got booted(they put a stopper on one of his tires so he can't leave) and he tried to get out of it... we couldn't, so there went $50 out of my pocket. We thought we were pretty lucky because another truck was supposed to tow our car away and that would have been $120!! So, we thought to play it safe we would return back to his apt and get Leanna's car and just take it back to their house because we didn't need it, so back we went to Charlie's parking garage...
AND LEANNA'S CAR WAS GONE. If we thought our night couldn't get any worse, it just DID!! Charlie went upstairs to ask his roommates if any of them called in to tow the Camry. His roommate Aric called in, not knowing at ALL the car was approved by charlie to park there, he said he'd help pay and he felt really bad. We called the tow company and they said that the fee is $120 and the person liable in this situation is Aric because he called in and signed for the car to be towed away without knowing or asking his roommates if the car was approved to park in Charlie's spot. We found out we can appeal the charge, but we still have to pay the $120 before anything can happen! After this all happened, Char and I were talking about what happened within an hour and we started laughing!!! It's good that in time of complete disarray, we choose to LAUGH! I love Charlie and I'm looking forward to walking through the hard and good times in life, knowing that we'd prefer to look at the funny side of things!

Okay that sux. Our's did'nt happen in a single hour but at our appts we got towed 3,, make that THREE seperate times because someone was parked in our spot and we did'nt want to be the bad guys and tow them so we parked in another spot. Each time was $250,, how crappy is that?? I loathe tow companies.
