Which led to:
lots of prayer, pulling over and waiting for my knight in shining armor to rescue me and then a call for a tow truck.
Not too fun.
The tow truck came into the strip mall we were parked in and then drove back out and away...
Rather odd, so I called the company.
Apparently, they were called away to an accident where a car was flipped over and people were trapped inside.
Amazing the thankful perspective that can follow news like that. More prayers followed...
