Stranded Mom

So, there I was a stranded mom of two broken down on the side of the road. It was getting close to 10 p.m. and I had both of my daughters with me as I was picking them up from dance class. We were driving down Independence when the engine to my sedan locked up. “Oh great,” I said to myself, this is exactly what I did not need.

I called my husband to let him know what had just happened so he wouldn’t be worried when we did not show up when he expected. I was upset and he knew it, he can always tell when I am worked up even though I try to play it off like I am not. After he calmed me down he instructed me to call a towing company and have them drop our car off at our mechanic’s shop.

I got on my smart phone to look up towing companies. I didn’t care which one really so I went to the first one that I saw. I am so glad I clicked on that link and found that Charlotte towing company. The dispatcher was very kind and courteous and was able to send a driver out to me pretty quickly. The tow truck driver was very professional and made me feel safe and at ease.

By the time my sedan was up on the truck I was in my husbands car and on my way home with my family. Though it was not my best day I was happy to be able to be home surrounded by the people a love. ¬†With a glass of wine in one hand and my husband’s hand in the other, it was a perfect way to end a stressful day.
