Ok, so I really think this has been the worst day ever....or at least the worst I have had in a REALLY long time. So, I leave my house to go to work a little early so I can stop and get gas. I get down to the car and noticed that it had a little bit of a hard time starting, but it did start. I go to the gas station and spend $60 to fill up my tank. I get in the car to start it up and NOTHING except a clicking noise. I didn't think it was the battery because my radio and lights still worked. So, I try calling Josh (he's in school and doesn't answer). I start to just cry! Not really sure why, I don't really cry at these things, but I guess I was thinking...."We have no money to fix the car or tow it or do anything with it. And what am I suppose to do, I can't just leave the car sitting at the pump. I need to get to work...what am I suppose to do???" So, I call two friends that live close by and asked them to call/text their husbands who are in class to see if they could get Josh to call me. They both did so and one offered to come get me. Thanks! In the meantime, there was a tire shop right next door, I went over there to ask for help to move my car. The guy that helped me was SUPER nice and looked under the hood and said that it actually was my battery and he jumped it for me! A big thank you goes out to him! So then the friend that came to get me was almost there when I called her and told her that I was ok. I felt bad for making her get out and come get me for nothing! (thanks for being soo willing to help!) Then Josh called me. So I am talking to him, still crying, and told him everything that happened. While I am talking to Josh, I get pulled over! Are you serious??? First my car won't start and now I am getting pulled over?!?!?! I guess I was speeding in the school zone and I didn't use my signal to change lanes and get around a bus! I got tickets too for both! The officer was a bit of a jerk, but was nice that he didn't give me my 2 extra points on my record for talking on my cell phone while violating the law! (Who knew that you got extra points for talking on your cell phone! Not me, that's not how it is in Oklahoma.) Oh did I mention that I never get tickets when I get pulled over. The only ticket I have ever had was for an accident and I have been pulled over like five times! Ok, now I get on the highway! I start to think "OK I will be ok if I can just get to work." So, I am on the highway cruising along and then all of a sudden traffic is STOPPED! I NEVER hit traffic on my way to work when I go to this office especially at 9 in the morning! I get totally frustrated and start crying. So, I am totally late for work and I decide that I need to call them. After a few minutes I feel like I can call and not cry....but I was totally wrong. I balled the whole time I was on the phone and as soon as I hung up, I felt like a totally idiot! Oh well though. I am now at work and just hoping this day gets better. That's all for now!
