I was on my way home from a basketball game, when my car broke down.
Everything shut off at the same time and the car suddenly stopped.
I lost all of my power steering and brakes. I was lucky to safely return to the other side of the road. I was on an embankment and I didn’t really have any room to put the car. I put on my four-way flashers and I opened up the hood. It was already dark outside, so I had to use the flashlight on my phone. I couldn’t see any reason why the battery would not work, so I tried to toggle the battery connectors. I tried to start my car again, but nothing happened. I had 23% battery on my phone, so I quickly called my car insurance carrier, because I needed to get a tow truck out there to take my car to the dealership. I sat on hold for almost 15 minutes and the battery on my phone continued to get lower and lower. I had no way to charge the phone since the car battery was dead. I was stressed out and aggravated that the car broke down. Thankfully I had some recreational marijuana and the glove compartment. I only had a bowl and a couple of dried marijuana flowers, but it was enough to get high and feel relaxed and more calm. I waited about 2 hours for the tow truck driver to arrive. I was in the middle of nowhere, so the two hour wait didn’t surprise me. The recreational marijuana products definitely helped make the long wait easier to take.
