So, I've been at the job a bit over a month. Yesterday, I went to my car for lunch, and it wouldn't start.  I tried a few things, nope. I sent my sister a message, she came, we tried to jump it, no dice. But, we attracted the attention of other CCCS employees, who gave me names of nearby mechanics (with card), or who stayed with us as we tried to jump it, etc. In the end, we left it over night. I was feeling sorta yucky last night, so, I scouted for some options, but, in the end, just turned in early. No Word of the Day, which I feel baad about, but, eh.

My sister dropped me off this am. The lady who had stayed with us last night, (who is a mechanic, but now does Perkins Grants) had been thinking about it, and thought we might need to try it again. She'd parked her car across from mine, borrowed my keys (I can't leave my desk), and left her car hooked to mine for over an hour, just to be sure. Nope. No dice. I tried it on my break. I told the person covering for my break what was going on. She went and mentioned it to my boss. My boss called around, and found a facilites guy who volunteered to pull out my battery.  My battery went into her car, and she volunteered to drive me to get a new one, and the facilities guy said when we got back, he'd put it in for me.  Yup, sure enough, all together, and the car is working again.

Really, I'm just feeling really grateful to a bunch of people I barely know.

Isn't it nice when people help you out? Restores your faith in humanity and all that :)

I love the people you work with! I love them I love them I love them! I'm so glad you are working with people who are willing to help you out and just band together to take care of you! Especially since I'm not where I can do it myself.... :D
