Not how I wanted to start the year!

So Sunday evening while out and about dh's car decided to not start. It took us getting help from three different people in order to get his car to work and then the whole way home the headlights just kept flashing like the car was about to shut off. We finally get home and turn it off and now it refuses to start, wont take a jump nothing. UGH! So we take his battery up to AutoZone to get the battery to charge and they said that it was bad and was leaking acid. So now we have to wait until tomorrow to take it up to Walmart where he got it in the first place two months ago to get it replaced and hope that that works. Now time to find him a ride to work tomorrow and I have to find a way to get to my doc apt. Its to far from the bus stop otherwise I'd catch the bus even being 28 weeks pregnant. THis is so not how I wanted to start this year off. Hopefully this is not an indication of what this year will be like.

I know they said the battery but,id get your alternator checked to. That's what usually causes the problems with the lights and all. Good luck I hope the new year gets better for you!

We are so hoping it is just the battery becuase the alternator would be an arm and a leg to fix for us right now and we're just hoping to make it until we get taxes to put a down payment on a car. Ugh

Prayers are headed your way. I'm sorry to hear all of that. Hope everything turns around for the better.

This is what happens when people don't know things about there vehicles. Also, why wal mart seriously? Wal Mart is not the place to buy automotive things! It may be cheaper but there is a reason cheap is not best. Especially when it comes to cars!
