Yesterday I ended up walking to work.
When I got home, I called the towing company that handles our complex’s parking lot, because (unknown to me before I had to change a tire!) they provide minor car assistance. The guy came, gave me a jump and asked me how I drive. I told him.
When I came inside, Good Man asked what was wrong.
“It seems that I am like a bad boyfriend.”
“I just start her and go. I’m ready to go, she should be, too!” Good Man laughed and I said, “I should know better. She’s not a p***
“Are you going to blog about this?” he asked.
I drove Good Man to school and a few hours later, went back to pick him up. The truck was still slow to start. And this morning it was slow to start again. I let him (her?) warm up and everything, but after work? Slow to start.
Maybe I’m not all that terrible…
So I bought a AAA membership and called them. They came over and tested my battery. It was bad, so they replaced and installed a new battery.
My car is pretty reliable, but car stuff freaks me out. I looked at how to install a battery and it was dead easy, but it’s cold outside. I don’t want to change another damn tire and I don’t want to install my own battery. If I’m stuck somewhere, I’ll let AAA come and help me out.
And I’ll let my truck warm up in the morning.
