It started okay. Normal grumpy Dan, etc. No big. Here is a little background: I am CONSTANTLY telling Daniel not to let the car go past a quarter tank for several reasons, it's just how I like things, and what if there was an emergency and we had to get to a hospital, or flee? He still insists on letting the gas light come on CONSTANTLY. He will drive all the way to work and back with it on, who knows why.

So anyway, at around 1:30 I realized I was about to start my period so I said, I'm going to go to CVS and get tampons. I get in the car and hey look! No gas the gas light is on! So, I live about a mile from a gas station. Literally a mile.

So I'm driving there, you know listening to some good tunes feeling a little okay. Until I get to the intersection and my car stops. Like it freaking stops. I panic. I have never been in a car accident, or had anything like this happen. I immediately put my hazards on and I am so embarrassed! I immediately curse Dan's existence. I call AAA and I'm like about to cry because everyone is honking at me and being so mean and I can see the gas station! But it's way too cold to walk and honestly, I don't even have a can and I don't really wanna walk and smell like gas and just ugh. So AAA says it will be half an hour so I sit there. Only two people tell me to roll down my window... some tiny british lady with a puppy asking if I needed a cell phone. And then some guy who suggested I should move my car to a parking lot, gee thanks, I hadn't thought of that one. Also, three cop cars drove by without stopping. Isn't it their job to like, stop and help situations like this? After about a half hour of sitting there, getting stares, a cop finally gets out and I tell him what happened and he pushes my car into a lot for me and then leaves. Oh and while all of this is happening I keep randomly calling Dan screaming at him, blaming him (because it IS his fault, I would never ever have let this happen) and presenting different scenereos about how I could of died, or Cohen could of been with me, or I was taking Cohen to the ER and this happened. I seriously could of killed him.

So this whole thing lasted for about 45 minutes and the whole time I'm like, on my period with nothing to protect me because I was going to get tampons and had Dan not gotten me the wrong kind, ancient cardboard applicator that I can't use I wouldn't of even gone. Once again, his fault. So I finally go to cvs, longest line ever. I check out only to see my debit card was in the car. So I have to go all the way back to the car, get my debit card and stand back in the long single line. It was just horrible, and traumatic. And people are so rude! Oh and I also apparently got a flat during all of this too. guhhfrgrhdtjtjfsdhszgskjgn

I know, I am so lucky that this was the worst day of my life.  A friend recently lost her husband so all of my problems seem so small lately.

I'm so sorry, hon.  It must be a guy thing, because my husband does the same thing no matter how much I scream or cry about it.
