The Battery

Thursday, February 9th, 2006 @ 10:19am

So yesterday was just one of those days. I had left band slightly early so I could try to make my lessons on time on the other side of town. So I walk out to my car and try to unlock, and it won’t unlock with the keyless entry, so I just assume the batteries in the key unit are dead. So I manually unlock my door, and put the keys in the ignition and try to crank and nothing happens. No lights, the engine doesn’t turn over nothing. I figure, no problem since I can get a jumpstart and be on my way. Jeremy was busy with a lesson at the time so I called Mike to come help jumpstart me. So we were outside for around 30 minutes unsuccessfully trying to jumpstart my car.

It gets better. So then I pick up my phone to call my student to let them know I won’t be able to make it, but my screen was dead. Completely black. I couldn’t make any outgoing calls unless I already knew the number. So Jeremy finally finishes with his lesson and I call him to make sure I can get a ride back if I can’t get started. So then I call campus safety as a last resort, and they were somehow finally able to get my engine going, but by this time it’s 6pm and my students are by now 30 minutes away so there’s no way I could make it. So now I had to go home and find some sort of software that would allow me to pull everything from my phone, my contacts, ringtones, everything so that I can hopefully transfer it to a new phone.

I think my mouse batteries are dead too. What’s next?
