Calling a guy out just to jump a car? Yikes.. Portable battery banks are cheap these days, Blue. Lots of models come with jumper cables and even a modest capacity (say 20,000mah) is enough to start an average car several times before you need to recharge. Keep it in the trunk or just take it with you on long trips for cheap insurance, and you can also use it to charge your mobile devices away from home or during a blackout.
I have one of those jumper dealies. Or had, rather, as I learned with this incident that it too had died.
But we have roadside assistance as part of our auto insurance, so it then became the easiest way to handle this at that point.
