A tow truck is never a good sign. It tends to be a harbinger of great and terrible darkness, in fact. Either a car has crashed, or a car broke down, or it’s coming to take your precious baby away from a TOTALLY LEGIT parking spot. But occasionally they do the Lord’s work, and in a beautiful way to boot.
The worst thing in automotive existence is people who double-park their cars for extended amounts of time. Not only are you managing to block a road, which is a place where people can drive cars thus denying them the world’s greatest pleasure, but you’re doing it with a car. It’s like some twisted, modern form of cannibalism. A moral tragedy all around, really.
And that’s what makes this tow truck so brilliant. Not only does it remove the offending cars, but it also does it gently and quickly. It doesn’t drag the drive wheels, thus messing up the mechanicals, and it doesn’t take forever, either. It just clears the road for what it was meant for – driving.
Okay, okay, I know it’s at an airport, but still! Roads are meant for driving. Not parking. If we’re going to make this a supreme moral cause we need to make everything about absolutes.
H/t to Dan!
