To tow my wife's S6 wagon with a broken tie rod????

I'm on travel, I get a call from the Mrs who asks if its ok to drive 
the wagon < 1mile home with a broken passenger side front tie rod...

Of course I say "no".

She calls AAA, says that the car has a broken tie rod and needs a ramp truck.

1st truck shows up, realizes quickly that the passenger front wheel 
is stuffed in the wheel well and the car won't budge (evidently the 
stuffed wheel means its also stuffed in gear or something like that)...

driver calls AAA dispatch...

2nd ramp truck shows up.....
no dollies.

At least he drives the wife and kids home...

2 hours after the first call she's STILL awaiting the car (having it sent home)

that she's driven!)
