Yesterday morning, I started the car and noticed that a light was on.
A red light. Specifically the battery light.
I've mentioned before that I have underground parking at work, and I have seen tow trucks trying to get cars out of the second level (where I usually park) before. It's not a pretty sight, so I made a point of parking on the first level.
And backing in.
I called and made an appointment to bring the car in today, and then hoped for the best.
I had boxing last night, so I left early (in case the car didn't start). It started.
It started after boxing, too.
And this morning, it started again. I started driving to the garage.
Half way there, the radio turned itself off. (Yes, I probably should have turned it off earlier - I didn't think of it.)
When I was a few blocks away, the speedometer started waving like crazy, and the airbag light started flashing. The signal lights started seeming ... drowsy, too.
By this point, I was very, very close.
More specifically, I was at the red pin, and I was going to the green pin. The only thing in between was a strip mall.
And a red light.
The car stalled.
Luckily, two bystanders pushed me out of the turning lane, and CAA was fast.
