Song for Friday...bad luck

Usually when I go into the city I have a pretty good time.
Thursday I had to go to the dentist for a cleaning
and I was planning on a bit of thrift shopping then home.
All went well in the dentist until...
I went out on the street and my vehicle was GONE!
Disappeared into thin air...
Until I saw the fine print sign ABOVE the 2 hour parking sign
that read...
between 4 and 6 p.m!
Now if I had got into the dentist chair at 3 (which was when my appointment was for)
and not 3:15 (because they were running behind)
I wouldn't have come out to my vehicle at 4:07.
Yup, 7 minutes late cost me $107 for the tow
PLUS another $30 for the actual PARKING TICKET!
Anyway, when I got there I remained calm and collected
knowing that the girl behind the counter was only doing her job
and that she probably gets some pretty rough language thrown at her
on a daily basis. Don't get me wrong, I was upset but like the
saying goes...
Shit Happens.
So today I dedicate this song to the towing company.
A good old Steve Goodman song .
Have a great weekend all!
(keep an eye on the time!)

I'm sorry for a bad luck day, glad you found the proper sound track (of course). Our felted elf, Frode, now often rides on the back of a truly scruffy vintage (read: bald) sandwich-stealing wolf/dog we named Lobo. Should anyone ask, the elves make excellent company, going about their elfin business with quiet focus and great good humor. xo
