A battery-jumper pack in the trunk is a nice bit of kit to have. They're not too expensive, and they're usually good enough to have one or two attempts to jump-start a car, even the cheap ones. And, while I'm thinking about it, it's probably not an entirely bad idea to get a decent 12 volt powered electric tire inflation pump. A flat spare is just as bad as a blown tire without an ability to air it up.

Probably doesn't have a plan for either of those, either because of the price or because they never thought they would need one. That said, I'm guessing that money is probably the issue, since otherwise they would have called for a towing truck/pickup and mechanic fees out of their own pockets.

I was thinking the same thing. OP, look into your bank account as well. Depending on the card you have, it may also offer 24/7 roadside assistance services.

I would've honestly just found a sofa in the office to crash on for the night rather than walk three miles in rain. It's a bit ambiguous whether the OP actually called someone and they said no, or he didn't because he didn't want to wake anyone/has no one to wake who would/could come, or didn't have his phone (which would explain the not getting an Uber, though surely for three miles, it wouldn't have been too bad). That said, the office probably has phones, so I'm still going with the short on cash and no one to call option.
