Al Gore Looks Scornfully Over at Me
March 30, 2008
Yesterday I had to call AAA to come and jump start our van, proving that our membership is good for something other than getting slightly discounted hotel room rates. Someone had turned the lights on inside the van and the battery went dead.
I called and the guy who came out and jump started it said to let it run for at least half an hour to recharge. That seemed so wasteful, especially with the prices of gas these days. But I had nowhere to go. So I said I would and happily went inside where it was not bone chillingly cold. (Spring, hello? Where are you?)
Three hours later I suddenly remembered the van.
Yes, it was still running. In the end it probably would have cost less to go buy a new battery.
