Car breaks down when driving back from work on a cold winter day. My cellphone is not working.I walk a mile to reach a call phone and talk to Suresh. It takes 1 hour for Suresh to reach my location while I sit in my car, shivering. He has to take a bus as the other car is in the shop.He comes,calls AAA and gets the car towed.We walk another mile, catch a bus and reach home by 1:00AM.
Car breaks down when driving to work in the morning. I have an important meeting , but get delayed. I panic, try reaching Suresh but am unable to reach him.Panic..Panic..Panic.Being totally stranded, I don’t know what to think. Finally, reach Sri, who finds Suresh and they come to my rescue.
Car breaks down in the office parking lot. I realize this on my way out for lunch. Luckily, Suresh , for the first time after having bought a cycle over the weekend had biked to work. I go home, with help from a colleague , get the other car , drive back to work, call AAA and get the car towed to the dealership. The car was anyway due for a service for quite some time. Also,since I have a car at my disposal, I can go to the gym without waiting for Suresh.

Apparently, my battery leaked enough acid to corrode and crack the positive terminal cable as you can see from the above picture.
