I could really scream... A rant after the fact
I could really scream... A rant after the factPosted on May 29, 2009 by Goddess Sonya
I had such an awful day yesterday I just had to share it with you all. My one moment of sanctuary from an otherwise stress-filled day --my workout -- came crashin g down around my ears when I looked out the window and noticed my car was gone.
I was towed!
It's not enough to just give me a ticket. It's not enough that we New Yorkers pay some of the highest taxes in the land and there are very few (if any) options for free parking. It's not enough that the meter prices keep going up but the roads are still jacked up as ever. Why did they have to tow my car?! On top of ticketing me?
So after tracking down a hostile traffic cop to find out where they take cars in Brooklyn, I had to take public transportation home in my gym clothes, in the rain. Thank goodness I had my registration with me in my wallet and not in my glove compartment.
Two hundred bucks and several hours later, I was able to get my car, but this has left a nasty taste in my mouth for NYC. I mean, I truly love Brooklyn and wouldn't trade it for the world, but it's times like this that make me think hard about moving to Florida where parking is plentiful and taxes are minimal (and the roads are not all jacked up!). Is it any wonder people are leaving the city in droves and taking their hard earned money elsewhere?
Okay, it's out of my system for now.
