Hello, OP here. Thanks to everyone who commented, even those who were less than courteous, but especially to those who weren't. What happened is that I, living at home while job hunting after graduating from college (with an engineering degree--I know, I had NO EXCUSE for this screw up! But I could tell#30 and #95 more than you care to know about motor oil and gasoline ) went to do a two-person job alone and left empty-handed. I never did mention it to my Dad. He'd never let me hear the end of it :-D Ironically, his Suburban could have towed my car, had he sprung for the towing package when he bought it, but alas, no. I didn't car-leapfrog because it was along the side of the highway and you're not supposed to run along there, and it was just more expedient to wait and get my Dad. I suppose I could have asked a friend to drive out and help me, but to anyone who suggests that, YDI too. #91, that sounds great, but I don't know of anyone in the area that offers that kind of service. #107, fifteen minutes driving is hardly the same as fifteen walking. I'll check back here some time soonish, see what other gems of wit, consolation, and mockery you folks leave me. Cheers, everyone!

Honestly, how on earth could you not think of that unless you owned a tow truck. I can't say anything else, but you deserved it. However, on the bright side, you got 15 minutes more of driving practice. xD

Or he could take like 30 minutes to get home... drive 1 car, park it, run out to the other, drive it park it, run back, drive the other... Etc... I see a ticket being given for this 1 if he doesn't find a legal spot, but it's a 15 minute drive home normally...so... Yeah...good exercise... & he won't get teased for his stupidity once home with them... Though I see him locking both keys in one, and getting stuck there...

45, I did that exact same thing once, only, I was on the outside and had my sister in the inside telling me what way to move the cost hanger. Not to mention the fact that the roof was down (convertible).

Jamicianprince - English was invented in England, not the US. And last I saw, the official language of Jamaica is English. Where you're from is no excuse for poor grammar. Nor is it an excuse for MISSPELLING THE NAME OF YOUR COUNTRY.

Bad grammar is when what you say does not obey basic laws of grammar. What you have posted does not even obey basic laws of sense. I'm sympathetic to people whose first language is not English, but whining about "grammar nazis" when your post honestly did not make sense just damages your legitimate excuse.
