On my last day of orientation at Vanderbilt on Friday I parked at Starbucks across the street. I had got a cup of coffee and walked across the street to complete my orientation. While there, I met a guy that I really connected with and we talked about ministry and many different things. Toward the end of the day we decided to skip out on the last session and because he lives in Hermitage I told him I would give him a lift. When we got to Starbucks parking lot I quickly noticed that my Jeep was not there. I had been towed. Starbucks towed me. The cafe that takes so much of my money took even more. We had to catch a ride to the tow company and then I took him home. It cost me $65 to get my car out.
When I got home and told Katrina, she suggested that I boycott Starbucks $65 worth. At first I didn't think I had it in me, but after some thinking, I believe that is exactly what I need do. So, since Friday, I haven't touched Starbucks, a.k.a. St. Arbucks. The plan is to drink $65 worth of coffee somewhere else before going back. It is my small way of getting justice and vindication.
Question: Have any of you ever been towed? This was a first for me and I felt violated. If so, tell me your story.
