This is my life:
Why yes, we are indeed on the side of the freeway. And yes, I most definitely did have to call my clients and tell them I would be a no-show to my visits. Oh and you better bet I had to call my father-in-law and timidly ask him to drive an hour to come save us because NOT ONE SINGLE PERSON STOPPED to ask if we needed any help in the 2 hours we were on the side of the road. Ah, the joys.
I vow to stop and ask what I can do to help even though I know nothing about cars. (all we need was some dang water)
