Old Cars and Questionable People

Woke to an old memory and thought I’d share.

Was a few years ago, I had finished work early the day before and gone home early. I’d parked as close to the house as I could.

I woke up the next morning in enough time to get the car and get to work. I searched the street for it, then the next street and so on. I couldn’t find it.

I happened to stop by at a local family garage, told them what I was looking for and they said “oh think we towed that for being left unattended.”

Gave them the reg number and they said “yep that’s the one” no remorse. The wife and mother of the boys gave me a number to ring and apologised for them being over zealous.

I rang the number as soon as I got my phone, an 02 number so you know that ain’t free. I explained the situation, that the payments were being made on time, that I was looking after the house for my grandparents while they were on holiday as I often did.

He started to ask did we inform the council I was staying there, using his parking space. To which I replied no we never did.

“Oh don’t think they will like that” he replied. We seemed to be getting nowhere and I had to get to work. So I ended up walking from Newton Aycliffe where I lived at the time up the old A1 to work and had to get picked up at 11pm by my mother as it was chucking it down with snow and near christmas.

Wonder what ever happened to that car and those terrible people?
