Long wait

Today, on my way for a vacation, my car started misfiring, so I called a tow truck. 40 minutes later the tow truck arrived. He then said that he had just gotten another priority call, so he was leaving and someone would be back in another hour to get us. FML

A priority call means someone else was having a way worse day than you

No, it just means someone was willing to pay more.

Here that would be illegal. They can't bump you for someone willing to pay more. The only reason they could bump you is if the other tow had to happen right away for safety concerns and is usually the result of an actual car accident

Please. I've waited 7 hrs in the middle of nowhere and been stuck overnight as a result because the repair shop was closed two hours before I got there. I was 6 hrs from mt destination. 2 hrs is average in my major metropolitan area.

My dad is a tow truck driver. If there is an accident, they only get 20 minutes to get there, and are considered emergency response vehicles. If their lights are on, technically you are supposed to treat them the same as an ambulance.(According to a police officer who works closely with the towing company). Someone had it worse than you....

At least you were not alone.
