So, I go out to get in the car to run errands and someone left a dome light on AGAIN and the battery is dead! AGH! My step-dad was running errands and was almost home and turned around to come jump us. It took some time and he was concerned that the battery was dying a painful death.
I get on the road and the car was choking and gagging a little. I was on empty so I broke my biggest car rule and filled the tank while the car was running. I get on the road and head to the pharmacy. I pull into the pharmacy and the car stalls. It restarts easily, but as soon as you put it in park it stalls.
Happily, I am a block or so from an auto store. the nicest boy tested my battery and sure 'nuf it is DEAD. The nice boy charged me way too much money for a battery and installed it for me and we were off to run our errands.
I am almost afraid to ask what is in-store for tomorrow. . .
On the road again
