the price of stupidity

i’m going to take this in the reverse order from the commercials…

  • expression on my face when i realized my car had been towed (with my cellphone inside): priceless
  • phone call to figure out what to do: $0.50 (i remember when it used to be $0.10)
  • taxi to the impound yard: $9
  • fee to get my car out of hock: $88.25
  • parking ticket for making the mistake in the first place: $60
  • cost of a legal parking space: < $5

as an added note, i was at the impound yard within about 30 minutes of when my car had been towed. their storage fees typically run something crazy like $50/hour. it could have been a lot worse…
