I had specific plans today to go out to some retail stores and see who is hiring. I also needed to stop by another place that did have an Asst. Mgr position and wanted to catch the store manager and give her my resume in person. She wasn’t there the last time I went. I also needed to look at getting a new battery for my cordless phone as the one I have doesn’t last more than five minutes anymore. And then I had a few other errands to run.
So…. I’m doing some online stuff for employment most of the morning. I talked to my mom on the phone and then I realize time is getting away from me. So I jump in the shower, get into some professional clothes, get my resumes, cover letters, etc. all in order. Jump in the car at exactly 3pm and bam! My car won’t start. Just great. I’m pretty sure it’s the battery. It seems like I just bought one not that long ago. But good ole Phoenix heat. Tires and batteries have a shorter life here.
Thank goodness I have AAA. That is one of the best things I ever did as a single female and purchase an annual membership with them. They check the battery, alternator and something else (I forget the 3rd thing) and they can either jump start you or they bring a new battery out for you to purchase and they install it for you. Great, I’m unemployed, funds are low and I have to fork out $142.79 for a new battery. To top it off, I may miss seeing the store manager! All dressed up and I have to wait an hour for them to get here. I’m just praying to god it is only the battery and NOTHING else!!
It’s times like this where I’m seriously really sick and tired of being single. I’ll be 39 in a matter of days and I’m just exhausted from doing everything myself for the last 21 years. Where the hell is my John Wayne? Seriously.
