Out of the Blue

I mentioned my medical check-up yesterday, which was fine, I received a clean bill-of-health. Unfortunately, when I was done, my car would not start, as the battery was dead. The good news is that I have roadside assistance (or in this case parking lot assistance) through my Verizon phone. The bad news is that is spite of being within walking distance of a couple of garages, it took well over an hour for help to arrive. I'm not sure if that's par for the course or not, but it seemed like too long, and if I had it to do over again I would have just walked to one of the nearby shops for help in spite of the rain.

I guess I'm lucky. The one time I've ever needed to call roadside assistance (through MasterCard), they told me it could take an hour for the truck to get there but it only took 15 minutes.
