Parking in downtown Austin is terrible, granted. We have all dashed around trying to find a parking place, and have felt the frustration of paying too much for a parking place. Today...I paid $192.00 for one. I was at the Jack in the Box on Guadalupe/26th, and as a paying customer, figured my car was fine parked in the restaurant parking lot. Wrong. I purchased my drinks for my son and myself, stepped out of the front door to walk down the sidewalk to call my daughter (shopping just a block away), and (literally) 15 minutes later returned to purchase dinner, and to my absolute horror I realized that my car had been towed. I get it...these people are crooks, but the most appalling aspect of all of this is I later learned from the Jack ITB employees (I returned later to warn/save unsuspecting customers) that there was a J&J 'stalker' watching me and my children as we entered and left the restaurant. He told the employee that ""I had 15 minutes or he was towing"". Keep in mind...JIT Box is a separate building and ownership from the parking lot...WHY was this ""stalker"" allowed to sit in the air conditioning and victimize the customers???? He doesn?t work for JIT Box?right? They don?t pay him?right? Are they getting kickbacks for victimizing their customers? It?s just sickening... If you read this, and you have been victimized by these cockroaches, call the mayor, call the police, call JIT Box Corporate and please let them know what you've experienced. BTW...they have messed with the wrong mom...I LIVE HERE. Austin is a kind city. For those of you who?s first taste of Austin was this bunch of crooks, I apologize! I can't imagine our elected officials would be proud that (high) taxpaying citizens and visitors are being victimized by these crooks. Let?s get em??.grass roots is the best way.
