Guess what happens if you park a trailer on a city street for a week or so and don't happen to inform the neighborhood busybody about it? Yessiree, it gets towed. Some folks named Head On Photos parked their trailer on my street. No beef off my back, I figured it was a company run by one of my neighbors but didn't bother checking it out. But the neighborhood busybody lady of course got annoyed after the trailer just *sat* there for almost two weeks with no sign of moving, she *did* check it out and apparently nobody copped to owning the trailer (or if they did cop to owning the trailer, copped an attitude about it), and she called the cops, who promptly red-tagged it for violating the 72 hour limit. I noticed the tag today, it has a date sometime tomorrow on it as the deadline. So sometime tomorrow, no more trailer on my street.
Point, point... if you are starting a new business and want long-term parking for shit like that, rent a space somewhere, don't just dump your junk on some residential street and expect it to be there weeks later when you come back for it. DOH! And it ain't even all that expensive, compared to having to pay towing and impound fees when your junk gets towed. Place where I store my junk, you can rent a trailer storage space for $100/month, which is a helluva lot cheaper than the impound fee's gonna be.
So it goes. I dropped'em a line that their trailer was red-tagged, no idea whether they'll get the trailer before traffic enforcement comes back again and calls the tow service. This doesn't bode well for the future of their business, though, if they fuck up simple shit like this...
