So I have story to tell.
I had planned on having this particular post up around 12PM CST today. But I just had a series of events that delayed me.
Well, after I took these photos I decide that I need to go to Sunflower to go grocery shopping. When I return to my car, after my food spree, it does not turn on. The battery died.
No worries. I have a self jumping box I keep in my car. I have been through this too many times before.
Best investment ever.
Well, it would have been if I had charged that bad boy.
So I’m sitting in my car.
Just plain hot.
Let me preface this story. I got up early and went to Wal-Mart to purchase a new battery for my car, but the auto service department wasn’t open. Since my car was starting fine I figured I could save this purchase for another day.
Well, of course my car doesn’t start. So I sit and wait… let the car rest for 20 more minutes, and then attempt to start the vehicle again, still no luck. I remember there is an AutoZone down the street from the store and I decide that I’m going to walk there. I do, in my 4 inch wedge sandals.
Thank God it was only 10:30 AM at the time.
Before I get to AutoZone I run into a random mechanic shop. I walk inside and request to use their self jumper. I had to leave a $200 deposit for a freakin’ $60 MACHINE! *ugh*
So I take the jumper and begin walking to my car. Since the thing is so heavy it made the walk feel like my car was 10 miles away. Well, one of the mechanics jumped in his car, found me, and we drove the rest of the way to my car. We were able to get the bad boy started.
When I get back to the shop I ask them how much a new battery is. They say $120.
“No thank you” I immediately respond and head back to Wal-Mart to purchase a battery and have it installed, it had to be cheaper.
Well, I will never know the price because they discontinued selling that particular battery.
All I could do was laugh!
What’s the point in getting mad?
FYI: Don’t you just LOVE this shirt? I purchased it at Strut during their first Thursday event. Every first Thursday of the month Strut as a HUGE 40% sale if you are on their email list. I purchased the shirt, the earrings, and the bracelet during this event.
My favorite thing about this shirt is it’s made in the USA. Don’t you just LOVE the detailing on the back?! I actually saw it last month, but didn’t pick it up and opted to purchase the shoes I’m wearing instead. I am so happy the ladies of Dallas looked past this shirt because it’s mine!
I’m actually thankful I wore it today, because it kept me cool as I walking back and forth from the mechanics.
