A while back, my band was playing the Orange street festival and some members of the security forces tried to have my car towed because he thought it was in a no-parking zone. All they had to do was tell me where the bands were supposed to unload and I would have been on my way, but they decided their time was better spent calling for a tow truck. The best part was, they didn't even know which car was mine! After maybe 20 minutes of arguing and stupidity, I saw my bandmates unloading near the stage so I left the jerks behind and went to set up. It certainly is amazing how stupid people become when it comes to parking spaces.
Anyway, we played the Orange street festival a few more times, until the year some drunk skinheads with white supremacist prison gang tattoos were arrested at our stage while we were playing. But that's another story.
