I just found this little diddy, hidden away in a small notebook I was using to take notes for my then new part-time job. I remember how excited I was to start my new job at Godiva…It was a Sunday and I had just gotten on the overpass when all of a sudden I heard a loud bang and my car stopped. At first, I thought I had been rear-ended by another car, but as it turned out, that was not the case. The engine was fine, but the car would not move. While waiting patiently for AAA, I listed my experience.

for tow truck

to pick up my poor

sickly car

Fortunately, the engine of my car was fine, but the axel was not. I no longer have this car because I was rear-ended later that year and my SUV was totaled…ahhh cars.
