Yesterday, as I was coming out of the pharmacy in Freshford I noticed the older couple parked in front of me was having car trouble. I sounded like they needed a jump start and since I carry cables I offered to help them out.
So I hooked everything up and we gave it a try, but all I succeeded in doing was draining my own battery so we were both stranded. 🙄
On to Plan B, I rang the auto-rescue and they sent out a mechanic though it took the bones of an hour. Thankfully there was no permanent damage to either my car or the other couple's and we were both on the road after a minute. Still, it threw my whole day out of whack and I only got done half what I wanted to when I finally got to Kilkenny.
I did get to see the Santa Claus parade :up: but only because I got stuck behind it :down: which only made me later. But I mustn't gripe too much. I got the essentials done. The rest can wait until next weekend.
In the meantime I may re-read my owner's manual and make sure I know what I'm doing for the next time. :whistle:
