A & A Towing, and Vons

Dear Vons on Broadway and Atlantic and A & A Towing on Cherry,
I knew that inevitably, my car would get towed one day. I have had a run of good luck and managed to go a YEAR without being towed. Yes, signs are posted, yes, I know better.
YET:
A and A Towing,Was there a twinge when you saw a baby seat and a stroller? Did you happen to feel just a tiny bit bad imagining how difficult it might be to get the car back with a toddler in tow? Do you feel at all guilty that aforementioned toddler woke up puking all over himself, and puked all over Momma on the bus, and did not deserve to be hauled away from his comfortable couch and Curious George? And really charging extra for a PARKING BRAKE that was on? C'mon.
Vons, I have spent thousands and thousands in your store, the $241 I spent getting Alfie out of hock, would have been in your pocket anyway. Is there some weird satisfaction in having a completely empty parking lot? And why do you charge for parking during "Events" yet refuse to take a monthly fee so my neighbors and I could have a safe well lit parking lot?There is no parking in Downtown Long Beach. This could be a win/win. I am so mad I plan to shop at Albertsons, even if it isn't in my front yard.
Sour Grapily,
your neighbor.
