Dare to Share #413



It is Friday night, and you know what that means.. 
It is time to Dare to Share!

So this week was a bit more frustrating than most. I had to go run a few errands on Wednesday.  When I started the car I noticed that it sounded funny when I started it.  At first it seemed slow, but then by the time I got to Meijer it was running okay but I noticed that my clock and odometer were no longer light up.  When I left the store, and started it again, it started funny again. I had one more quick stop that I had to make so I stopped at Walgreens.  I was in there about 20 minutes.  When I went out and tried to start my car, nothing happened.  It would not even turn over. I was pretty sure it was the battery.  I made a couple of phone calls and found out if I could get the battery jumped and to the local auto parts store they would test my battery for me.  A few minutes later, I saw a woman coming out of Walgreens wearing an Aldi T shirt (my favorite grocery store)  I asked her if she could help me.  She called her boyfriend who lived just down the road.  When he got there to my surprise he was one of my favorite Aldi cashiers.  He hooked up my car and noticed that my battery still had some power but the cable gave it enough juice to get it started.  Once at the auto store, I found out my battery did have power, but not full power. It was starting to go out and quickly. It was due to be replaced but it was an unexpected expense this week. They store put in the new one and recycled the old one for me.. Also the last few days I have been trying to get through to the unemployment office since schools are closed, so have thousands of other people. I was on hold for hours today and did not get through.  I will need to keep trying until I do. Hopefully my issue will be quickly resolved.  So how is your week been going?  I hope it is less eventful than mine was. 

It is time to get this party started.  Link up and HAVE FUN! (well as much fun as you can have in quarantine!) 

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

  1. Sorry to hear you had a pretty tough week, Pam. I hate when my car starts acting up; mostly because I always feel like I know nothing about it and am at the total mercy of someone else. Thanks so much for hosting and I hope your weekend is wonderful.
