|Here, I am thinking of pushing the tow truck driver|
off of a mountain.
If you are thinking of starting your own business and want to know of a surefire way to make lots of money, then buy a tow truck. Sure, you won't be able to sleep at night because you will feel so bad at over-charging people but hey, you're up anyway, you can just count your money!
Himself and I took a day off in Florida to see family and needed somewhere to stash our trailer. Bobtailing (that's trucker for driving without a trailer) is a lot easier without dragging around 53 feet of metal and eight extra tires. On previous trips we had spotted a big dirt lot next to a night-club that had several trucks and trailers parked in it. There were no No Parking signs. The lot was big and out of the way and it was only for one night. Two trucks were already parked there. We felt pretty confident about it being safe. Himself even put a note on it with our name and number and how long we expected to be gone.

The big shocker came when we called the towing company to find out how much it was going to cost to get it released. The man said calmly, "$665, cash only, get here before 3". I was speechless, flabbergasted and dumb-founded. I meekly said, "but we had a note". I could practically hear the guy roll his eyes. He hung up.
Himself was able to talk the bill down $100.That's something, I guess. I stayed silent during the negotiations. My tactics are more of the yelling and cussing variety. Satisfying, but hardly productive.
