The Kindness of Strangers: The Tenth Day of Giftmas

For the 10th Day of Giftmas, I’m going over to my other site, to tell the story of how I got my car towed from the streets of Baltimore as I was walking my daughter back to the car. SPOILER ALERT: I was not cool under pressure. Here’s a piece of it.

The Kindness of Strangers


“I can’t. I already have it hooked up to the truck.”

This is one of the most bullshit phrases that Americans still use today. Which is exactly what I was thinking as I was now sprinting the stroller with my very sleepy and hungry baby in it back to my wife’s slightly inclined car.

Not only did I learn back in kindergarten that what goes up must also come down, but the eyeball test would indicate that there currently weren’t any other cars on the back of the tow truck and common sense would dictate that they went somewhere and the most likely scenario is that they were put back down. So yes, jerkwad who has now seen the panicked look of a father with his infant child seeing his only way home from Baltimore being towed away, you CAN put the car back down. You just WON’T put it back down.
