01/23/2004 Entry: "I have next to nothing to say...or nothing to say part two."

Subject: I have next to nothing to say...or I have nothing to say, part two.

Unfortunately, for me(s), I feel Obligated to post a follow up to to yesterday's whiney cry of doom. Well, how can you blame me? If you Knew all... anyway, the car is back in its space in front of our home.

No, it wasn't an easy time. Another day was Ruined. All our personal attemtps to fix it failed. Our Auto Club (Allstate) told us, after we gave up, that help (a tow truck is what we requested, btw) was on the way and would arrive in 40 minutes or less. And the "help" "EZ Towing?" would call soon....not! After an hour of chilling cold (at least two people today joked with obvious sarcasm that we "should have picked a colder day". Not.) we called Allstate again. "No, the person you spoke to earlier was Wrong!" they said. "I am So Sorry!" Great, that could only be Good news, right?(sarcastic gaze) "She should have told you that a tow truck was TWO hours away. Yes, she should have called another service for you! Oh no, the one on the way is 'Roadside Assistance'... he can jump you and things. Should be there in 10-15minutes, latest." Right. And there is a magic hippo that will fly you home....

At this point I hear call waiting trying to get my attention so I sign off pleasantly with the lady from Allstate, asking if she will somehow give us a "credit" for their negligence and our discomfort. She said she would check with her supervisor. We'll see. The other line is the guy from "EZ" and he apologizes and points out, rightly so, that Allsate got the information wrong..and I agree with him and let him know we are on the same page. He will arrive shortly, says he....(holdiong breath)(g)..

A twenty-five minutes to a half hour later, our 'Savior' arrived. A little late, but nonetheless our Savior!

Our 'Roadside Assitance' was Wonderful. A really nice guy who Knew what he was doing and quickly diagnosed our problem on the spot, saving us agony and money, and speeding us toward warmer environments. After making sure the car was running he followed K to the local PEP Boys, with myself following (we had another car at this point - don't ask). Of course it died again in the middle of traffic and while there was a lot of horn honking, our EZ Savior quickly resuced the car again and we made it the rest of the way there...Thank You EZ Towing Guy!!!! A new battery and, Woo Whooo! We were back in business!

Now to get it past Inspection....(wry g)
