    Oh, boy. Another problem would be cell phone’s battery goes dead as well as not enough change to use a pay phone or to ride a bus.

    Been there done that…That is one good thing about having a cell phone…when that happened to me years ago I had to find a store to call for a tow…Not many people want to give your car a jump…

    Yes, Gary (and Donnie), especially if you are a lady plugger. After about a hour locked in my dead car, mall security came by and helped. So much for last minute Christmas shopping.

    Do Pluggers have cell phones?

    HOW ABOUT HAVING A SPARE BATTERY AS A BACKUP. MY PARENTS OWN A V.W. BEETLE IN THE 1960’S AND WHEN THE CAR DID NOT START DO TO A WEAK BATTERY, THEY WOULD PUT THE JUMPER CABLES ON THE SPARE BATTERY TO START THE ENGINE.

    VW Camper-Bus could do that too (if you got the ‘optional’ 2nd battery for the Refridgerator)

    Back in the day even parking on a hill could be of help for starting, but now, is it really helpful to have keyless entry, electric locks and all that convenience that depend on a battery? Sure hope the mall is still open so I can buy a cell phone.

    Should have gone to the 24 hour Wal Mart one street over.

    …and always back into the parking spot or pull through if there’s an open one in front (if you can). That way they can pull right up close, engine to engine and the cables will reach.

    They now have battery backup devices with compressors that eliminate this altogether. Even pluggers can buy one.

    Where will you find this “pay phone” you are speaking of? As a plugger, I know what they were. But good luck finding one today!

    But listen to the sound of the crickets. Isn’t that soothing?

    This happened to my mother last year — only it was in the school parking lot across the street from her church on a Saturday night. Thankfully she had her cellphone with her and she was able to call my husband and me to come and give her car a jump. After that, she definitely needed a new battery.
