dsmama Posted March 9, 2012 Share Posted March 9, 2012 Excuse my while I vent and have a mini pity party. Thank you. :) This morning at 8:10 my car wouldn't start. I think I need a jumpstart. I call my husband, who is ten minutes away at a gas station, about to get on the highway to head to an 11:00 meeting a two hours away in another part of the state. He declines/refuses to come home, saying that he is "cutting it close" for his meeting already. I remind him that I am taking DD to an appt @ 9:00 for which we will be charged $80 if we don't give 24 hrs notice for not coming. He says he's sorry, but that he has to go, and rattles off a list of folks to call before he hangs up. So I try to call all whom he suggested.... -- AAA. My first inclination. On hold a long, long time. Turns out, the membership lapsed for non payment. He pays the bills. I specifically remember AAA calling last year asking us to renew, and DH told me he had already done so. -- My insurance co, which does offer roadside help. Just not our particular type of policy. -- My mother in law, DHs stepmom, who was going to watch the other kids while DD is at her appointment. She says she's sorry about my car and sorry that she won't see us today. No offer of help. -- My neighbor, who isn't home. -- The car dealership - no such service offered Finally, I call a friend who graciously drops her plans, comes over, gives me a jump, then watches my kids while I drive to Auto Zone to get the battery tested. I don't know....I guess I'm just hurt that DH was willing to let his wife and kids sit at home when he is 10 mins away, knowing that it would cost $$ to miss the appt. And that we don't have AAA, when he told me we did. And, I am getting over the flu and feel like crap. :) Thanks for letting me vent.
