Yesterday my car was nice enough to warn me that my battery would be dying soon. When I started my car in the morning I heard the gr-gr-gr-gr before it finally turned over. It's much worse when you don't get any warning – sometimes I'm on the other side of town, at night, and in a hurry, when my battery announces its retirement.
I decided to buy a new battery since the end was near – maybe not this week, but I'd rather change it at my own house and on my own time schedule! Unfortunately, I must have run over something in the Checker parking lot, because 30 minutes after changing my battery I was at Discount Tire buying 2 new tires as well.
Apparently yesterday was car maintenance day. Funny though, it wasn't on my calendar...
