I’ve gotten towed to the Navy Yard too…. except mine was on a sunday… they close at 7 on sundays… and by the time my cab got there…. it was 7:10…. and they wouldn’t let us in…

What a pain in the butt that is… at least they cleared it up for you.

Where I come from they call that Grand Theft Auto and it is against the law. If some TV show towed my car away someone would have died.

Sorry to hear about all that crap. Film and TV crews are assholes. Always have been, always will be.

That said, I gotta defend Third Watch. It’s a great show, despite the fact that nobody seems to be watching it. I know that the conventional wisdom is that if it’s such a great show, everybody would be watching it. Well, they said that about Seinfeld, too, didn’t they?

Seriously, though, TW is a great show, despite its dickhead towing crew.

Now I’ll never win an ALP contest. [Tom]

Heh, you know that happened to a friend of mine in Carroll gardens. Except, he didn’t know somebody moved it. He spent two months trying to get a stolen car claim through his insurance until he was taking a walk one day and saw his car, two blocks away.

With a note on the car.

Best anecdote ever.

A couple of years ago, while I was living in Chicago, I went to find my car at work, and it wasn’t there. Reported it stolen, started the claims, looked at new cars, the whole bit. While I was driving home one day in the rental, I saw my car parked on another street :!: Not stolen (there wasn’t enough gas in the first place), just moved. No tickets, nothing. Even the cop was confused. Apparently, the city moved my car, or maybe it was aliens….

Gawd, that story is funny. Bernie, I think your comments at the bottom of the page are better than your comics! You should try making some based on real life, and then you’d be the hottest thing on the web!

That *SUCKS*.
Meanwhile, I would NEVER watch “Third Watch”, but now, I’m going to ACTIVELY not watch it. Like, I’ll find out when it’s on, and stake out the tv during that time, and, every week, CHOOSE to watch something else, just to STICK IT to them.
Consider it a Belated Chinese New Year present. Or perhaps an early Valentine’s? (hooooot)

Damn, now I want to kill the cast and crew of third watch even more!

They’re filming CSI: Miami by my parent’s house in Long Beach /again/. Something about an airplane crash…

Last time, my mother nearly ran over David Caruso (Horatio Caine) while making an illegal U-turn. >.<

That still would have hurt his career less than quitting NYPD Blue.

eh hehe…you sure about that? CSI and CSI:Miami are two of the most-viewed shows on air. I think Caruso is going to have an irritatingly successful career post-NYPDBlue. ^_^;;

I’m fairly sure you could sue someone here… and I’m equally sure that NBC (they air third watch, right? Iunno, I don’t watch it.) would rather settle for an outrageous sum. Ask a lawyer, if the case sounds sure-fire, they’ll probably take it for free.

Easy money, and it’s comming from a show and a network that both suck.

This really is a major issue. A TV station has no right to tow ANYONE’S car. This is a breach of privacy, Grand Theft Auto, and you could get sooooo much money from the network just by uttering the word Lawsuit, especially if you got pictures and documented proof they did it.

Add to that a file from your wife for emotional distress over the loss of the car, and you’ve got a hefty retirement fund. Oh, and you may want to get your auto insurance in on this as well, they have serious fun with cases like this.

Just a thought…When my friend’s mom had her car moved out of a parking space that was a perfectly legitimate spot, she sued the guy and got almost $45,000…

I’ve had my car towed too. At least the girl working there was pretty nice to me. Most of the cars there just sit and rot, no one picks them up anymore.
There was also a couple really nice cars there too. I wish I worked there, I could take them for a spin.
By the way, how was the first week of work?

That’s complete BS! You should sue, seriously. Then you could get all this money, quit work, and spend your newly earned time to make comics twice a day. Haha. Just kidding.

Suing would be easy, but then they’ll claim that there were notices up saying “No Parking Wednesday” or something to that effect. Unless you have other people to back that claim, and pictures, it’s going to be a “He said, they said”. So unless they’re willing to settle for a small amount to everyone, and you’re willing to accept it, you’re SOL.

You should track down Steve via the production company phone number and tell him he’s a lying sack of…

Gah. I’m so sorry for you. People are horrible.

The second issue is, what are you doing with a car in NYC?! :)

Depends where you live.

If you live in Manhattan, you’d be insane to have a car.
If you live in Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx, you can live with or without a car. I have one, because I used to work in Long Island. And at least I have a garage spot.
If you live in Staten Island, you’d be insane not to have a car.

Besides which, it takes me 20 minutes garage to spot to go to Bernie’s with a car. By train, it would take me well over an hour.

You’d think a show about emergency services would be smart enough to not put a car in front of a hydrant.

Not only that, but Im sure its technically theft to move your car without permission.

In short, sue.

Third watch is a crappy show o.O

Don’t worry Bernie, I’ll never watch Third Watch.

Channel 9, the free-to-air station in Australia that shows it, oversaturated its advertisments for the program a long time ago and how great it was. That was enough to put me off. I think they even have two episodes in a row on Tuesday nights. I wish they’d put on the crappy new Star Trek on earlier instead of Third Watch.
