I appreciate everyones response. This happened in E. Memphis, on E. Rolling Oaks Dr. about 3:30AM on Sunday after I left work and was on my way to pick up the wife from a friends place. It turned out both drivers side tires were fucked. Long story short...
It was a holiday weekend and there were no tire-shops open on Sunday so I left a note on the car letting the neighbors know I would take care of it on Monday. Went, Monday morning to remove the tires but like I said, I couldn't get them off. Left the car and went home to watch the Outback Bowl and arranged for a friend w/ AAA to pick me up and meet a tow-truck after the game. When we got there, the car was gone. The owners of the house it was in front of called the cops and had it towed, despite admitting to have read my note. I was more than pissed. I had wrongfully assumed that I would get a 48 hour tow notice before the city would tow it. Turns out, if a car is deemed undriveable, the city can tow it right away. So I ended up paying $165 to the impound lot and another $75 to get it towed outta there and then $140 for two new tires.
While most of my anger resides with the cunts who called the cops and had it towed I'm pretty shocked that the city can tow a car without any warning. I've written my councilman, Jim Strickland, but have gotten no response. Seems like a money grab by the city that leaves a lot of room for fraud and abuse.
Anybody got any good revenge ideas for the bitches who had my car towed?
