A No Good, Terrible Day!

A week ago, I walked up to George and noticed he had a neon orange sticker on his window, claiming he was ILLEGALLY PARKED!  As per usual, I had cut my allotted driving time to the bone, but went in and asked what the story was.  I was assured it was no biggie, and went on to the library.

Three days later, again with the sticker, with the same reason, and now I am ANGRY!!!!  

I am not a violent person, usually, but this one woman who works in the office brings out the worst in me on a good day.  She sat there with her supercilious, better than everyone look on her face and asked, "Do you have this on your window?"  No, I did not.  When I asked why she didn't ask me that 3 days ago, she tittered and made some stupid assed remark that left me wanting to pull her over her desk and beat the shit out of her.  I'm telling ya, she brings out the very worst in me.  I took her damned sticker, stuck it in the window and went to work.  

Two days later as I'm coming out of the bathroom from my shower, I hear George's alarm go off, I run to the window to see him be pulled out of the apartment complex.  

Luckily there was another woman in the office besides supercilious bitch and I talked yelled at her about George being towed.  This is where the whole thing gets ugly.

Those other two times I went into the office and supercilious bitch acted innocent about why George was tagged was a fucking lie.

The maintenance fella was behind SB, looked down at the book she had opened and mentioned that maybe my tags were expired?  Turns out he was giving me a hint!  But I was to focused on the whole documentation of my parking permits to listen to him.

There was a spot on the tag of doom for expired tags, but they didn't check that one, but the illegally parked box.

They told me where George had been abducted to and I called a cab to rush me to George's side.  While Mr. Taxi was driving me to the impound lot, he told me something very interesting, that when you contract with a towing company you get a kick back on every car towed!  I checked at work with a few folks and yup Mr. Taxi was 1000% correct.

I paid the towing fee of $136.00 and got into George.  Knowing that I needed to get new tags ASAP, I opened the glove compartment to grab my registration and there, sitting on top of the manual was the new tags..........giant sigh.

When I was talking this over with TH, we both had a vivid memory of the tags coming in the mail, but this is when he was going thru all those surgeries and doctor appointments and rehab classes.  And like fools, I just dropped them into the glove box to put on tomorrow.  A tomorrow that cost me $136.00, a taxi ride and a months worth of anger.  This was 3 days ago, and I'm just now calming down about it enough to write it down.

The thing that angers me the most is that Supercilious Bitch knew the first day I went in why my car was tagged.  That's what burns me the most, that they have no problem fucking over their tenants.  I wish the old company hadn't sold to out to these vultures.  When my lease is up, even if we were planning on keeping an apartment here, I would still move out, I am that angry with them.


  1. Some people in life take great glee in your misfortune. All to quick to be silent or rush to hear your tears. All the while being ever so cold and dark.

    Don't waste anger on them. Pity them for they are missing the true joys in life. <3

  2. I'd take a few more days to clam down--I know I'd need a few more days--and then I would calmly walk into that Bitch's office and politely tell her that i know she got a kickback, and I know that she knew there were no tags that first day, and that I will be moving when my lease is up, and that I will contact the owner of the complex and tell them what she did and why I'm moving.

  3. I'm sorry to hear this happened, and if this happened in Cali I'm pretty sure it would be worse. Out here, the DMV will do things like suspend your license in addition to what happened to you!

    I have a tendency not to remember things, so I started using a calendar to remind me of everything. Speaking of which, I got a reminder to schedule my online bills. I need to take care of that this morning. LOL!

  4. Perhaps a well-written letter to the complex's corporate office about the woman's behavior is in order, and will be much more affective in potentially changing her attitude/behavior than punching her lights out.

  5. That totally sucks! What a bitch that one lady was to not even tell you why it was being tabs by them so that you could deal with it before it was to late. I can't believe that the apartment sicks the state on you for tabs. It is not like it effects them, they don't get fined if you where to get pulled over or ticketed. It is also BS for places to get a kick back for having a car towed. The closest I came is I set aside the states notice that it was time to renew my tabs (they send it out at least a month before, more like 2 before they expire) and set it aside thinking I was too busy and would do it later. I forgot until I noticed 2 weeks after they expired that they had expired. Stupid me like 3-4 minutes on the DMV website I had them renewed and had to wait a week for them to be mailed. Luckily I did not get snagged by the cops as the ticket is like $150. (the tabs are like $40 so yeah like 3 times the cost of the tabs, then you have to pay for the tabs too) After that near disaster I renew the moment I get the notice, and put them on as soon as I get them.
