Oh, No! Your Car Won't Start?
Situation: You're running late, you rush outside, you jump in your car and — oh crap — it won't start. Ugh. Of course it won't.
Feelings: Frustrated, annoyed, mad.
Goal: Calm down a bit! Get inside, make yourself something delicious and chill in your comfortable, air conditioned house while you wait for the tow truck to arrive.
Car trouble is the worst. It's expensive and a total hassle.
