So Arga perhaps you would be good enough to enlighten me. What are the rules on parking in a lot if that company shuts down?
Still belongs to the corporation (or it's local real-estate holding arm) it doesn't become free public parking unless the owners sell it to the Borough, and even then, it wouldn't be free, the Borough would install parking meters.

There is not, never was, and never will be, free-for-all parking in this town, tis an impossible dream.

We only had to deal with that kind of problem for a week though, before said company put up the 10 foot chain link fence fortress around it to make sure everyone got the message that it was CLOSED.

You think they'd have looked at what that same opponent did to my local nationally-ranked and overly-hyped team, here in the Lower Land of Ravenous Weasels, eleven years ago.

Oddly enough, the towing companies here often use the same colors as the aforementioned local nationally-ranked and overly-hyped team, which I'd imagine probably causes a LOT of fun on game day...

You know, I'd just been watching this and afterwards was like, "I haven't seen an Arga post in a while!" And then I come here to this. Ah, the timing.

It suggests either Saint Patrick himself worked a miracle to return that truck to you after some leprechauns had run off with it to make a late-night potato run, or, you reveled in Paddy’s name so vigorously, you simply forgot where you parked your truck that night and reported it stolen in your green-tinted haze. Which the cops chose to humor and “find” for you the next morning when there was zero chance of you committing a DUI with it. And I don’t blame them. If it were me, I’d put Officer O’Hella on the case too. As in “O’Hella no, we ain’t fallin’ for this shite!”

But even if I DID believe in you, and that you were a victim of Grand Theft Fagan, those parking tickets you got rung up on? The whole reason for this mess?
Oh my god this part is genius!

I loved your earworms too.

I have to admit, I probably would try parking at a closed business figuring that I would not be in the way. But then the parking in your urban lands sound a lot more valuable and enforced than it is around here.

Love the epicly long Arga post! I scroll and scroll and scroll on my phone to make an overly long coffee break this morning!

Wow, the "Some Things Are Just Final" guy was REEAALLLLLY stupid ... as compared to the basic stupidity of most of the others.

What size of sign does he think would be acceptable, so he'll be made aware of all the non-exceptions and consequences, before he ... parks there anyway ...

Yay! I've been away for a long time, and looked forward to the Tow Files.

Thanks for the laugh.

Yay, just got back from a "short on time" vacation from foruming and here's a Tow Files!

Comments, in no particular order (much like me):

Always nice to see Beantown's exploits.

"Escheatment" refers to when an abandoned financial account (no contact with financial institution by owner for a certain legally mandated period, which I understand can vary by state) is surrendered to the state of the owner's last known residence. Might not be a bad idea to check with the Unclaimed Property offices in states you've lived in to see if there's something there of yours.

Those fakes were truly pathetic, especially the green one. I think my cat could have done better.

Great lines:
"You are doing such a thorough job of that on your own that were I to render additional assistance in any way, I believe the SEC would immediately charge us both under anti-trust law." - on "making the vehicle owner look stupid"
"Is it any wonder there are days I muse how even one of those millions of spermatozoa manages to find it's target if this is what it will eventually produce, I call em "weekdays". " - please note call center workers feel like this too
