    Maybe if they didn't steal people's cars in a money making conspiracy with the parking lot owners and hold them for ransom, it wouldn't be so contentious.

    Looks like we're done with the minutiae and have moved on to the "big picture" :D

    This one is probably different from my general experience, but I do have many years experience in front line point of sale customer service. In that position, your job depends on gritting your teeth and tolerating the abuse, and customers like Blondey capitalize on it by dishing it out like they would never try in an even confrontation. If that cashier was going right back at her in kind, I'm rooting for the cashier.

    Could you imagine talking to someone like that in a bar? Don't know who would walk away, but they'd need the cops and an ambulance.

    I hadn't heard of her, or recognized her, before this came drama hit the press.

    I think it's hilariously ironic that she's insulting the (unseen) women based on her looks, when its obvious that she got her own job based on her looks. Sure, that must have been it.

    i don't know of her and i certainly disagree with the way she handled herself but.... i've been a victim of a towing "scam" before. that leaves me with little sympathy for the "clerk".

    This is also a very valid point.


    Much badness on both sides it would seem.

    The towing company is doing its job. It is not breaking any laws. If you park on someone else's property when you shouldn't, it's kinda hypocritical to claim your own property rights have been violated.

    I don't even know who the person is in the 'tantrum toward tow truck trollop' but I know I would have trouble containing my anger at being towed and the BS that goes with getting my vehicle back. You're judging her because she's beautiful and 'famous'... I guess. Anyone who says they would handle it better is full of ****.

    Come to the TDPRI for the tele talk. Stay for the misogyny. It's a regular menu item.

    I'm pretty sure I would handle it better. Guess I'm full of asterisks...

    That towing company has an "F" from the BBB and has more complaints lodged against it to the police than all other towing companies in that city combined.


    Immediately after the whole thing they were very sympathetic toward the blonde reporter and said they understood her frustration and certainly hope she's not fired.


    Why ? Because they want the spotlight to go elsewhere.

    This whole thing could cut into their bottom line. They've got a nice thing going and don't want this momentary "blip" to change that.


    Spoiled nasty privileged woman on TV vs unfortunate single mom victim ?


    Not even close...

    How so? This thread is chock full of denigration and sexual objectification of women and now violence (hit it with a baseball bat?)

    Y'all will equivocate but I wouldn't say this thread was the most welcoming to women.

    Jupe, I can almost guarantee that there's a predictable majority of us that would be able to be enraged enough to criticize the legality and ethics of the tow company without spitting out vomitus personal insults. As hard as it is to believe, not everyone is capable of even conjuring those kinds of ugly thoughts into a sentence...

    I can't explain every colloquialism, and I'm sure you'll find innuendo and such on ANY forum frequented by mostly men, but I'll say that any type of violent remark would apply equally if the video were of a man puking the insults.
