I had to get my car towed here in Austin once. They sent a flatbed because they didn't want to screw up the car. The guy still scraped the front pretty good driving it off of the thing. That was after he hit my garage with the truck.

All the while he was insulting my car and BMWs in general. "I wouldn't own one," he said in his mullet-sporting, tobacco-chewing, camaro-driving Texas drawl. He talked all about how they are pieces of junk that always break down, etc., etc.

I just ignored him since my car was in his hands. Besides, it was kind of entertaining, like watching monkeys at the zoo.

That tow-truck driver was probably excited about towing your car. "Ooh, a fancy Beeeeemer," he may have exclaimed, "we'll treat this one reeeeal nice n' special!" If he was like the guy I dealt with, he was probably also driving like a maniac with your car on the truck, cutting people off and saying stuff like, "Yeah, I'm drivin' a 5-ton truck. Who ya think's gonna win? "
