Tow Jam

Anyone who's ever had their car towed in Albany knows that the people who do the towing are class-A assholes ----and the biggest assholes of all are those at Joe's Osborne Street Garage. I've heard some amazing stories of their assholery, but this one takes the cake: they towed a school bus this week that accidentally parked in a private lot near the State Museum. 14 students from the Clifton-Fine High School in St. Lawrence county were stranded until they coughed up the $216 fee demanded by those swell folks at Joe's. School bus driver Anne Clement said, "I don't know how they thought the children would get back home if they had taken our bus."
