Truth Can Be Stranger Than Fiction Part 1
This past Wednesday I started out early to a networking meeting South of Atlanta. (I live North of Atlanta, just over an hour away.) My battery decided we weren’t going anywhere. Since I have roadside assistance with my car insurance, I called to get someone to jump my battery. No problem, right? An hour later help finally arrived. I knew I’d be an hour late, so temptation suggested I just stay home. Since my good hearingaids were acting naughty, the temptation multiplied. I wouldn’t have to strain to hear or feel left out.
I didn’t stay home since I had planned a conference with the woman in charge of the meeting. I really hated the idea of missing both meetings, so I drove to and through Atlanta and beyond. Surely that would recharge my car battery sufficiently.
The women at the meeting welcomed me and made me feel better about making the long, late trek. They helped me when I misheard something and kept me from feeling lost When I won a super nice and coveted door prize, I was glad I had gone.
But that’s not all. My conference after the main meeting lasted almost four hours. I left at almost dark and found my battery hadn’t retained a charge. Luckily, my client’s husband helped me get started so I could head home. I barely missed getting in to buy a new battery. I’d deal with that in a day or 2 or..
The prize included a certificate for a 2-night hotel stay. So I still made out like a bandit!
