Paying tow truck fees is really annoying when you're flat broke. I ended up asking the tow truck guy to drive me to the bank so I could take money out of the account in order to pay for everything. He was a little reluctant to do so, and he basically intimated that he thought that I was going to make a run for it. I don't know what I would do at a bank when he was the one with the getaway car, but I guess anything's possible.

    My unit was on an Army mission in Montreal, Canada. Our company commander was out to dinner with us when we saw a couple of Marines going for booty while on tours. He called over the waitress and told her there next round of drinks were on him. As she left and took their order a very loud cheer was heard throughout the place. It turns out an entire platoon of Marines was there eating dinner. My company commander had a bar bill of over $200, and a bunch of new friends.
