  9. The actual charge being $250.10.

  1. Oh no! That sounds awful. I’m sorry to hear you got towed. Was it a parking issue? I think the City of Minneapolis is a little slap happy when it comes to handing out parking tickets. We all got slammed this winter at our house for some of the most random, silly reasons.

    PS: I’ve just rediscovered your blog and I loooove iiiiiit! Poetry and book reviews are awesome!

  2. Why in the world would you be parked in the street, available for towing? You have that nice big garage and driveway to put your car in!

  3. I was at a friend’s apartment and we never connected about parking passes for the lot. He had some, but I didn’t even think about it until it was too late. Lesson learned!

  4. This sucks! I have never had it happened, but you explain it well. I am not going to lie, I read it a couple times to get a good chuckle at your expense. Then I noticed how the extra 10 cents is probably what put you over the top. You had to go back to the ATM for the THIRD time because you didn’t have a dime on you. Haha, so frustrating! I can just imagine you steaming out the ears.
