I Heart AAA
I am always afraid I'll lock my keys in the car. I obsessively click the unlock button after opening my truck because I'm nervous that somehow I will lock my keys/kids in the car. Today after grocery shopping I had both kids buckled in, all the groceries unloaded, and I slammed the passenger door and went to hop into my side. Locked. What?! How? I used my key less entry to lock and then unlock the truck. But for some reason I didn't triple click the unlock button...and my phone, purse, and children stared at me from behind the glass. Ahhh...don't you hate things like that? I kept a smile on my face and asked the lady next to me if I could use her phone. After explaining what was happening I have to be honest, I expected a woman to woman sympathetic smile and 'use my phone for as long as you need!' She did let me use it, but she was quick to point out that her battery would probably die and she didn't have a lot of time. Geez. Anyway, I called Mike and he called AAA and in less than 10 minutes they were there and I was in my truck. 10 minutes! Isn't that amazing? I expected it to be a long time. I just kept smiling and talking to the kids and doing stupid things to make them smile. If you were in the same parking lot you might have seen me pretending to go down the elevator 12 times as I disappeared down the window, then up again. They thought it was HILARIOUS. So did the nice couple parked next to me. Yes, I am a dork. When I became a mother I lost 99% of my pride. Anyway, cheers to AAA. They saved the day.
