Too many a times have I made resolutions for a better me, only to see them crumble within the first few days of the year. Lol, just pitiful. As I was thinking about my new wellness resolutions, my mind drifted. I thought about setting myself up to drive again. I thought about my first car, an '88 Honda Accord. The car appealed to me because I was the only one who knew how to drive it. You see, the gears were shifted by one, so Drive was Reverse, Reverse was Neutral, etc. It then hit me to think in Reverse, not what i will do, but what i won't do. I'm sure this time it will stick. I mean, why not?
Bought a 2011 Mercedes Benz S550 and was loving life. This was Circa 2014. Out and about everywhere. At the time I also had a 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe, my first ever full car purchase. As normal, living in NYC, the Tahoe had racked up some parking tickets. Oh, I don't know, about $3500 worth of tickets. Lol. In New York, over $350 in tickets wins a tow or boot, where you would have to pay the outstanding balance and the $185 towing fee. Needless to say I knew they would come for my car, so I started hiding them far from where I live. I'm in the 230's, started parking on 207st, yes 23 blocks away. I garaged the Benz there and would park the Tahoe on the street. All was good, i started paying down some of that debt, until one evening at work. From the parking lot at work, Bay Plaza Mall, they towed my Benz. They found me, lol. 11:30pm and I was like, 'Ok, I know I parked here.' I knew they had finally found me and instead of finding the Tahoe, the found the Benz, f..k!!!!!! I now had a week to pay the $3500 or they would auction off the Benz. That they did, sold for $27000, took their $3500 and send me the $23500. I still owed $22500 to the bank. Lost my Benz and got $1000 in return. What a mess.
