but would they tow our Benzes?

Workplace Rules

"Workers at a DaimlerChrysler plant in Kokomo, Indiana,
should drive a Chrysler model or they may find their car in Indianapolis, 50 miles away.

That's because a rule limits parking space for non-Chrysler cars.
Violators will be towed."

So they could drive a MB?

I'd drive a Toyota and say, "but I want a reliable good car so I can get to work on time"

The company probably provides SOME parking for 'alternate' make vehicles.
That lot is probably too small, the farthest from any building, full of glass and potholes,
adjacent to a baseball diamond outfield and the bad news end of a golf driving range.

They probably paint the spaces smaller, so that everyone dings their doors.
They probably hire the homeless, to offer to clean your windshield
and encourage them to key your car if you decline the offer.

It's a union thing they have a lot in the back 40 for all other cars. Now that plant are being closed driving a Toyota near a GM plant (if it's still open) can be dangerous. I've heard guys at gas stations yelling at some innocent sap filling up his Tundra. The funny part was they were driving a 20 year old truck, the guy with the 2 years old Tundra has done more for the American auto industry than they have since somethings on his truck was made in a union shops.

Geez, as if there aren't enough hurdles in life,
people have to encounter lunatics like that.
