My car died this morning. I left my dome light on all night and for some reason, my car battery didn’t like that. Add to that, my wife wasn’t home and I had to get to work. But this blog isn’t a pity party for me. I got a cab and when I came home, I jumped my car with my wife’s car. So I was fine. But then my mind started to wander…
As you know, after you jump your car, you need to drive your car around for a while. (Recharges the battery, I guess…I don’t know cars or science). As I was driving around I wondered if anyone every jumped their car, started driving, and then hit someone. I feel like it had to have happened. But did they stop? Or did they keep on driving because they didn’t want their car to die? Now you’ve got a hit and run on your record all because you left your headlights on.
Or I wonder if anyone ever jumped their car, started driving, and then immediately got a flat tire. That has to be a top 10 suck day (In the first world, at least).
Basically I like to fantasize about worst case scenarios that aren’t happening to me so I feel better about my little problems. It’s a wacky system, but it works 🙂
