Auto Drama!

Oooh. I have real life drama to report in my LiveDrama!

My brother is in town. He borrowed my car today. He parked downtown. He parked in a zone that said "No parking 3-6 pm." He didn't realize that has no leeway, since they need to free up the lanes for rush hour traffic. He thought no one would notice if he got back a couple minutes late, and if they did, he'd just pay the ticket.

Of course, I don't understand why he needed to drive downtown. It's a mere pittance to hop on the bus from my apartment. And it's not like he had to do something in a rush. He is on vacation. But I didn't question this behavior. If I am gonna ask him why he did things, there are other incidents that take priority.

So it turns out he can't even get my car out of the tow-yard. It has to be the registered owner. Which I find amusing. What happens if the registered owner isn't available for whatever reason?

So now I am taking off from work a bit early to go get my car out of hock.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
