Today, I went out to my car only to find my battery had died the night before. With the wind chill, it was -20°F outside. With the hood open, and jumper cables in one hand, I tried to flag down a passing motorist for help. A man in a truck slowed down, sarcastically waved at me, and kept driving. FML

It sounds like you were home or at work or somewhere where there's a phone. You said you went out to your car and found out it died the night before. Well, unless you were on the road a night before, there shouldn't be an issue; go inside and call someone for help. It still sucks about that jerk though.

It's not freezing at -20F. It's 52 below freezing. When it's sub zero in Celcius, it's cold. When it's sub zero in Fahrenheit, It's best not to go out because it's a sign of the apocalypse. Since you clearly don't know, freezing in Fahrenheit is 32F.

Maybe you should invest in a battery charger, and a brain

Now that wasn't very nICE

Maybe he shouldn't have let his battery die in the first place?

dat's what she said!

What kind douchebag thing is that to say? Batteries die when it is that cold.

That is why i bring my battery inside when its that cold. I have a maintainer installed in my car to keep the battery warm and fully charged. I also have a backup battery that i keep on a maintainer in my apartment in case my car battery dies. Being prepared is the key in cold environments like this.

I've never had my battery die in the cold. Why dos it do that? The acid just freezes or something?

The cold doesn't kill the batteries, leaving something on drains it. The cold has absolutely nothing to do with it.

You have to be careful now'a'days with helping people on the side of the road. You never know if they are serial muderers!

No one cares that "is gets colder than that in Canada". If you think your life is more fucked than someone else's life than submit your own FML. Damn, one uppers!
