Ripped off

I got ripped real good by City of Chicago this weekend.

To divert my wife from going to the Macy's or more like trying to get myself out of the whole shopping scene , I proposed going to a new Restaurant in downtown instead... Smart Alec that I am, I thought I had pulled a fast one.

I had no clue, my supposed act of smartness (by half) came with a price tag... I can only put it down this way...

Dinner at new snooty Indian restaurant - 45$
Seeing your wife's angry face on missing car in parking
lot, post dinner - 0$
Taking a panic cab ride to Lincoln Towing Company and getting a smirk from the cabbie - 5$
Providing unsolicited and flimsy excuses to that dis-interested dude, behind towing booth - 0$
Paying for the towing charges - 170$

Breaking into a spontaneous bout of laughter after a three and a half minute silence inside the car.... PRICELESS...For everything else... you have life..

I'd say only a tad better than the regular Desi joints... but that's not saying much, is it?
