The Car That Wouldn't Start

I left the office at five sharp today
No time to stop and chat
Stuffed my key into the ignition
And realized the stupid battery's flat

OMG, what could have happened?
I bought the battery just a month ago
Then I discovered I left the highlights on
On a bright hot afternoon, so soh-lou!

Thankfully, much help was available
Colleagues and students came to assist
We rolled my vehicle downhill
Stupid engine didn't give a piss

Argh! Forced to stop before the main road
But I did not swear or give a damn
There's always that last great resort
To call our mighty AAM

*As with all fairy tales and nursery rhymes, this story had a happy ending. Jonzz recharged his car home and arrived home in time for dinner. The end *

Got a lot of things on my mind after lunch. Didn't realize I turned on my headlights.

Did AAM come fast and do a great job?
These days, I think must drive with headlights on even during daytime.. lots of blind bats on the roads.

LM: AAM was pretty fast, 15/20 minutes.
