I mistakenly parked my car in a no parking zone for 10 minutes. In that ten minutes my car recieved a ticket and a tow truck had backed up to it. My car wasn't hooked up to the tow truck yet and it had been there for a very short period of time. I asked the tow truck driver if I could just take my car after he (rudely) explained why it was illegally parked and he took one look at me and asked, ""How much money you got on you?"". My girlfriend and I had nothing on us and we answered nothing. He shook his head and said, ""Then its 95 dollars at the city tow lot."" I understand that these people have a job to do, but given the situation I thought it would be reasonable to let me off with the 55 dollar ticket only. Adding to the miserable situation was the fact this guy had the nerve to shake me down for extra money. Ridiculous.
Cons: dishonest, crooked, rude
