No warning? I’d be pissed as hell

CHICAGO (CBS)–Imagine coming out of your house to go to work, but your car is nowhere to be seen.

Thousands of Chicagoans have found themselves in this position over the last few months, but it’s not because they were parked illegally.

    It’s Chicago. Why people live there, I don’t know. But, millions do, and they keep re-electing the same ass-clowns that enable this sort of thing.

    I work for a very large international tech firm, but they don’t have enough money in their treasury to get me to move to a place like that.

    If they moved my car for a film shoot, I think that would make me more than a little angry. I might even find out what movie they were filming and seek to do anything I could to cause them extra time and money. Like get a few of my friends, say a couple hundred who had also been towed, and picketed them during production shooting. You would be surprised how much it costs a film crew to shoot per hour. If they say that you cannot protest there, I would get creative Drive by with your horn blowing, every 30 seconds with about a couple hundred cars, that might take over an hour, before you start all over with the first car.
    If my car is in the street where they are trying to plow snow, fine, my bad, do what you will. Tow my car for no reason, or for ” other”, and don’t even tell me why, game on.

    There are no fines for residents whose cars are moved.

    Gee, how generous of their masters.

    I really enjoyed Chicago when i lived there. It had lots to offer a farm boy….and I sampled as much as I could. Food, concerts, sights, sex, drugs, bars, people, school, job, museums. I didn’t sleep much.

    But….that was 40+ yrs ago. I wouldn’t go back now….no way, no how.

    Buckingham Fountain (opening scene on Married with Children) was awesome at night.

    Gosh, even here in Califrutopia, that goes by the quaint term “Grand Theft”, and it’s a felony.
    There is no exemption for city services, and in fact, it adds “felonious conduct under color of authority” to the charge sheet.

    And some morning, a tow truck driver is going to get headache #357 for his efforts, and that crap will cease permanently, for him. Because Chicongo.
