I realize leaving the interior light on in my car is my fault. I also realize that needing a jump is not a big issue… or is it?? I hate comparing but I have to on this one. In the states, when your car needs a jump, what do you do? Ask the first person you see. Problem solved. They have cables, they have a couple minutes to spare, done. Well, not the case here.
I can admit, I do not know much about cars. However, I do know this. And I can confidently say that almost everyone I knew back home also knew how to jump a car. Not only that, but I would say more than half had cables in their car. Well we dont have cables. This is ok, but I feel like my car battery dying should not be a 3 day process. I understand we are all busy but I think the thing that frustrates me the most is that I know what I am talking about! Yet, the “I have to look at it,” is thrown in my face further delaying the process. It really could have been a quick fix. And eliminated me missing class another day.
My favorite phrase I have learned in french class is:
“Pourquoi faire facile quant on peut faire difficile.”
Translation is more or less why do things the easy way when you can do it the hard way. I was so confused in class. I just kept asking, “Isnt it the other way around??” No. It is not. This is France, people.
