Completely and utterly alone: my ignition is locked and will not turn with the key. I get my tire repaired yesterday, and I can't help from this terribly nagging feeling that the repair shop may have done something. What a huge coincidence though. No problems with ignition before tire repair, huge problem now. And I have no one to rely on. I walk down to a neighbor who I sold my old car to, to borrow his battery charger. Had I been a man asking him to borrow his charger, I think his behavior towards me would have been different. He pretty much suggested that "he's no hero" and that he was too busy to help. I explained that I know how to charge a battery and that I only need to borrow it. I explained that he doesn't have to be interrupted beyond my taking his charger and returning it when I'm done. I did not ask him to "do" ANYthing for me. I only asked to use his charger. I live down the street and it would be no problem with my taking it and returning it. He jumped to assuming that I was asking him to fix a problem for a "damsel in distress". He would not have responded to me in that manner had I been a guy asking to borrow his charger. He said he was busy and when do I need it. I said I have all weekend, but have to be to work in Monday. He insisted on delivering the charger to my house and doing it for me finally. What a sexist dick. I'm stuck and alone with no one to call for help. I don't have any family here and the few men friends I have are useless. I am feeling waaaay down in the dumps. My brothers are excellent with cars and I trust them, but they are a thousand miles away. I'm so depressed.
